‘Smart Idol’ competition to showcase distinct talents of labourers

SmartLife, an NGO licensed by the Community Development Authority (CDA) will be organising a unique competition for Dubai’s blue-collar labourers. ‘Smart Idol’ will give the workers a great platform to showcase their talents. Smart Idol takes place over 9 months, where more than 1500+ labourer’s from Dubai are auditioned from 15+ labour camps with their singing and dancing talents in the preliminary rounds.

A jury panel selects the top 15 talents, split between singing and dancing performances, who will then be trained and mentored by industry professionals to fine-tune their skills. Smart Idol winners and select finalists become part of SmartBand, which performs at corporate events.

“Smart Idol affords our hard-working labourers a healthy break from work and gives them an opportunity to exhibit their talents and thereby enhance their own self-esteem,’’ said Indrani Dasgupta, Project Lead, Smart Idol.

The Smart Idol finale will take place on Friday May 19, 2017 at Sheikh Rashid Auditorium, Oud Metha Road, Bur-Dubai.
