The globally renowned television show, Nigeria’s Got Talent, is back as it rolls into its second season with its first audition holding in Abuja today, 9 October.

Rotimi Pedro, Managing Director, Rapid Blue Format, while addressing a gathering of media and entertainment personalities in Lagos last week said the coming of the show has further shown to the world the abundance of amazing talents that abound in Nigeria.

“From our experience last year, it became clearer that we will have even a more difficult time deciding who will rule this year. We are the greatest nation on earth. Everything points to that, including the God-given talents that are just everywhere you turn to,” he said.

He assured that this year’s show will be an exciting four-and-a-half-month season which will attract the best of Nigeria’s talent from across the country. It will also ensure lots of exciting offerings to viewers every week.

Eight-year-old Amarachi Uyanne won the contest last year, walking away with a cash prize of N10 million and invaluable fame and recognition.

With actress Kate Henshaw, Yibo Koko and Dan Foster returning to the judges’ seats again, auditions for this year will also hold in Calabar, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Asaba, Benin, Ibadan and Lagos. This year’s winner of Nigeria’s Got Talent season stands a chance of winning N10 million.

The show, sponsored by Airtel Nigeria, with support from Malta Guinness, will be running from October into the New Year 2014.
