NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Iconic New Yorkers are set to voice announcements on MTA subways and buses across the city next week.

The voices of 20 iconic New Yorkers including comedian Jerry Seinfeld, rapper Jadakiss, and actress Debi Mazar will be heard over the new campaign for the MTA thanks to Nicolas Heller, also known as New York Nice on social media.

"Starting February 12th, you will be hearing over 20 new voices representing the @mta on subway platforms and buses all over NYC," Nico wrote on Twitter.

"Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered their time to this. It has been my most ambitious project yet. Oh, and shoutout @debimazar," he added.

Nico gained popularity on Instagram for showcasing various talent acts across the city.

During the height of the pandemic, Nico held a now-viral contest to crown the best New York accent with comedian Michael  Rapaport and rapper Princess Nokia as judges.
