Come December 2009, the reality Television scene willÂ be agog with SoulBase Network, organizer of â€œNigeria isÂ Talented,â€ a multi_talent entertainment seriesÂ will showcase talents from different fields.
The reality series, which according to organisers, is hoped to be â€œa break away from the normâ€ will garner talents,Â billed to display their dexterity in areas such as singing, dancing, acting, comedy, novelty act and handling ofÂ musical instruments. Mrs. Chika Adetomi, Project Coordinator, â€œNigeria is Talentedâ€ while shedding light on theÂ objective of the programme said, â€œthe show will provide a platform for singers, choreograph dancers , novelty acts,Â acting, comedy and other talents (performances) to compete under one roof, which will provide excitement and auraÂ that are never experienced in reality television shows .â€
Adetomi noted that whereas Nigeria is enriched with talents in various fields, the scope of talent hunt has beenÂ largely limited only in the areas of singing, dancing, acting and comedy. She said that the unique quality of thisÂ show is the opportunity the show is offered to other unpopular talents to show their dexterity alongside familiarÂ talents to one audience.
â€œThis is a country with diverse and fascinating culture, artistry and providence, yet most of her individualsÂ cannot tell how talented they are or if at all they are talented, because of limited exposure. â€œNigeria is Talentedâ€Â will provide a platform for talents,â€ she added.
The performer must posses an â€˜xâ€™ factor mechanism, which makes audience and viewers go â€˜wowâ€, she exerted.
Regional auditions will take place in Lagos, Benin, Enugu, Makurdi and Kaduna and the regional winners converge atÂ grand finale for the overall winner to be determined.
