FIRST PHOTOS! AGT TALENT HUNT SHOW SEASON 2 DISCOVERS AND BEGINS PROMOTION OF TALENTED NIGERIANS | SOUTH-EAST AUDITION HIGHLIGHTS
It is always beautiful discovering raw talents from the grassroots and giving these young Nigerians a platform to live out their dreams and impact on society through the use of their talents.
This was what played out when Slami Empire, organisers of the talent hunt show Anambra Got Talent (AGT) visited a commercial city in South-Eastern Nigeria – Onitsha to scout for young talented Nigerians in a bid to offer them a platform through which their talents can be showcased and promoted.
The team made up of Slami Empire CEO Ifeanyi Onah, Slami Empire Brand Manager Nneka Igwe, two other judges Mr Ideal Universe 2016 and singer Christian Prince and music producer Mr Stan; played host to hundreds of youths who showed off their talents in the areas of dance, drama, music, rap, amongst others.
Speaking on the audition which held in Onitsha, Mr Onah said:
“We are excited to have come to Onitsha for this stage of auditions. We have been informed that the youths in South-East here have lots of raw talents but lack the platform to showcase themselves and that is basically why my team is here”
On the value Anambra Got Talent intends to bring to society and what next for the successful contestants, he said:
“We have this planned out. We don’t intend to raise their hopes by coming here and doing nothing for them. Not at all. In fact, this opportunity is open to all interested persons, no matter the location. After now we intend to head to Awka on June 24 and also to Oko and Nnewi, just so everyone has an opportunity; and registration is quite easy, all they have to do is visit www.anambragottalent.com and follow the steps there.
“After the auditions and online voting, winners from the grand finale have a brand new car, cash prizes, ambassadorial deals and endorsement up for grabs. We intend to reward them with prizes and also support them through their career. “
He added that at the end of the first audition which took place over the weekend, about 10 contestants were successful including a female rapper and some singers.
Anambra Got Talent 2017 is the second season of the much talked about talent hunt show. It’s debut season back in 2015 had Nigerian celebrities Chris Okagbue, Ken Erics, Uti Nwachukwu, Sharon Maduekwe, Nneka Igwe, and many others grace the grand finale where a dance group smiled home with a brand new car, while other winners took home cash prizes and music deals.
