Actor Segun Arinze and director Ifeanyi Onyeabor are joining a forces for a new reality TV show titled, The Heroes: Back to the Roots which is obviously Nigeria’s first cultural reality TV show. The show is also set to commence auditions at the twelve designated centres nationwide.
This was made known in Lagos by the producer of the reality TV show, Chinyere Ogbukagu of De Havillah Timeless Productions, Jos.
The host of the show, Segun Arinze, assures of his readiness to take the final 37 contestants who would emerge from the various states of the federation and the FCT into the House for specific tasks which would show their deep knowledge of the Nigerian culture.
Explaining further, technical director of the production, Ifeanyi Onyeabor said, “A people without culture are like a people without a past, a foundation. Culture is a veritable medium for galvanising a people, predicated on attitudinal behaviours, dress sense, foods, ways of life, heroics and visionary latitudes.
This reality show is an expository presentation to the front burner that will drive cultural content and put an end to the alarming drift to the doldrums, as many youth are alien to their cultures,” he said.
