Naija Sings Returns!

video


M-Net has just announced that it will produce and screen a second season of its music reality series, Naija Sings. Once again, the series will journey across Nigeria through seven cities with one mission: looking for amazing new singing voices, undiscovered vocal talent and aspiring music stars!

Open to a wide range of musical acts from super soloists, to dynamic duos to music groups of up to 5 persons, Naija Sings will offer them all the opportunity to compete for a place in the Top 10 and in the race for a grand “winner take all” prize of USD 100 0000.

For M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi, M-Net was pleased with the results of season 1 of the show and so made the decision to launch season 2.

“With Naija Sings, M-Net created a format uniquely suited to the soaring voices, the passionate determination and the undeniable talent of Nigerians. Last season both M-Net and our audiences celebrated with the contestants, we sang with them, grew with them, learnt with them and ultimately triumphed with them. This year, to bring back Naija Sings for a second season, is something we’re very proud of. Good luck to all the entrants, enjoy the experience and have fun!”

This year, M-Net also marks a unique moment in its production history with Naija Sings set to take on the distinction of being its first original series to be filmed in High Definition.

Alabi says, “We’re thrilled that the series will be filmed and will be available in High Definition. Technology constantly progresses and we aim to keep up with these changes so our audiences ultimately can benefit directly from these exciting new developments.”

And more good news from M-Net this year is that legendary Nigerian musical icon Tosin Martins will play a central role in the production as a key judge travelling from auditions in the different cities to the Top 10 stage, which is set to be filmed in Lagos.


Joining Olisa Adibua and Tosin Martins in season 2 is singer/songwriter, businessman and music producer Ayorinde Ilori Faboro, a.k.a Dokta Frabz, as the Musical Director on Naija Sings, whose most critical task is to provide music guidance and vocal training to the contestants as they approach the all-important TOP 10 stage of the series.

Once again this year Naija Sings will be co-produced for M-Net by STORM360 Ltd and Never Machine, and will embrace different musical genres including Hip Hop, Reggae, R&B, African American legends, African legends and Afrobeat.

In addition, this year will also see the inclusion of special celebrity judges who add their expert opinion to the series and a fan favourite, once again the studio audiences will be able to comment on the performances, adding their own thoughts and sometimes humorous insights to the feedback.

BIG BROTHER AFRICA 5 LOGO



I can show you the brand-new logo of the fifth season of Big Brother Africa first that will debut on DStv 198 on Sunday, 18 July 2010.

I broke the news RIGHT HERE that the contestants of Big Brother Africa V will be made up out of an all-star cast from the previous four seasons that's set to get viewers wagging with even more of the absurb theatrics that made them famous in previous seasons.

According to the producers the new Big Brother Africa logo for the fifth season place an emphasis on ''light, reflection and shimmer'' with a boldly defined eye ''highlighted with moments of iridescent colour. ''Setting off the sophisticated design and central to the layout is the outline of a star, evocative of fame, showbiz and the classic Hollywood sense of lights, camera and action!''
Toldja . . . that is code for: expect some stars in that house just as I've told you - with supersized egos, megalomaniac behaviour and completely outrageous diva tantrums!

The fifth season of Big Brother Africa will run on DStv 198 for 91 days, 24 hours a day and viewers will get to choose between two feeds. Big Brother Africa will be available to both DStv Premium as well as DStv Compact subscribers.
