Sola Fajobi, the organizer of the annual Next Movie Star reality show, says this year’s edition of the show is different because all the contestants in the House are exceptional.
“This year’s housemates excite me to no end. Unlike other editions when you would have started noticing the weak ones among them, these housemates have been exceptional.
“It seems they came with the realization that only the Next Movie Star can actually prepare them for a career in any area of the entertainment industry,” Fajobi said.
Now in its ninth year, the Next Movie Star, over the years, has produced talents like Uti Nwachukwu, Tonto Dikeh, Annie Macualay, Boma Mac-Ake, Kevin Chuwang-Pam and Karen Igho among others.
Tagged Call 2 Stardom, the 2013 NMS Africa Reloaded edition features housemates from Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Gambia, Kenya, Namibia and South Africa. Nollywood actor and former runner up in the Mr. Nigeria contest, Seun Akindele, is the host this year.
With a promise to engage the audience in a more meaningful way, Fajobi says the show is committed to delivering the best of reality and talent content to TV viewers across Africa.
“The Show will also broadcast on key TV stations across 10 African countries, 24 hours on the internet and a dedicated Youtube Channel for Live Feeds. There is no dull moment in this year’s edition. Viewers are encouraged to vote for their favourite housemates via SMS and the internet,” Fajobi added.
