Nigeria: Titans - A True Naija Music And Comedy Reality Show Debuts
A new entertainment show; Titans Nigeria is set to begin by March 1, 2010. This is targeted at helping the youths, especially the raw and talented rappers; comedians and singers showcase their talents.
It is the first of its kind as it seeks to promote rappers, singers and comedians. The show begins its nationwide audition by March all over the country while the audition will start upon conclusion of registration in the following cities; Abeokuta, Abuja, Akure, Benin, Calabar, Enugu, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kaduna, Lagos, Makurdi, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Uyo and Warri.
Only one talent qualifies you to compete for the ultimate throne of the Titans; if you are a good rapper, comedian or singer.
In an interaction with the press, the AGM of the company Obus Zalee Brodoh, stated that the idea is primarily aimed at helping talented youths from the grassroots who can rap, crack jokes or sing move to the next level. "Titans talent hunt show is all about Nigeria swagger and 'effizy'. We intend to help Nigerian comedians, rap artistes and singers move to the next level. Titans will be a unique TV show because it is the only TV show that will give rap artistes, comedians and singers opportunity to showcase their talents in a Nigeria swagger and 'effizy'"
He further said "Unlike many other shows where they seem to prefer those who sing only like 'Oyibos'; in our show, your language and slang don't matter, it could even be in pidgin English. We want our winners to be supper-stars unlike many of theirs who just disappear thereafter because they are not original."
According to Obus there have been fruitful discussions with one of the leading communication company in the country towards successfully hosting the reality TV show and the price for the form is N2,500; from any Oceanic bank nationwide.
At the end of the audition in the slated cities, 28 finalists will emerge to contest for the ultimate prize in Lagos. The winner goes home with a brand new Kia Rio plus N1.5 million, while the first and second runners up will go home with N1 million and N500,000 respectively.
