According to her, auditions will hold in Enugu on 17th August and Owerri on 24th August, after which, 60 participants will be selected from both cities. This number will then be pruned to 20 contestants that will eventually qualify for the show.

“The show will require participants to display their skills in either singing, acting, spoken words or dancing, which will revolve around their understanding of the Igbo culture and the winner will go home with a cash gift of N7 million while the first and second runner up will go away with N2million and N1 million respectively,” Tolu added.

The People’s Hero will be anchored by popular on-air personality, Chinedu Ani, also known as Nedu Wazobia.
