Entry Opens For ‘Most Talented Gospel Artiste In Nigeria’
There is no doubt that the gospel music industry in Nigeria has suffered for a long time because organizations, especially corporate bodies have not been doing much to give intending stars the needed platform to rise to fame.
Instead, the secular genre of music has enjoyed much patronage of heavy sponsorships. This is why singers leave the church to seek 'greener pastures' in secular music.
In 2014, Bennie Media Concept Organization started the 'Most Talented Gospel Artiste In Nigeria (MTGAN)', which was held in Lagos and won by Hassan Olakunle. He went home with a brand new Nissan Altima, N250,000 cash and a recording contract.
Due to the success recorded in the debut edition, the talent hunt show is set for a second edition in 2015.
The organizers of the programme have called for entry from prospective contestants with the payment of N2,500 and details of payment, location and name sent to 09093662663.
Auditions will hold in four major cities in Nigeria; Lagos, Benin City, Uyo and Abuja, from November 14 to 19, November 21 to 24, November 26 to 30 and December 4 to 8 respectively.
The event is slated for January 21, 2016.
MTGAN is endorsed by the Federal Ministry of Culture, Tourism and National Orientation and the Federal Ministry of Youth and Development.
Registration is open from July 1st to September 30, 2015.
