FOLLOWING its eight city pan Nigerian tour, Nigeria’s Got Talent’s auditions came to an end with a large turnout of talents who stormed the Lagos venue of the finale. The two-day talent hunt which held on Saturday October 26 and Sunday October 27, attracted thousands of hopefuls with a record-breaking turnout converging at Within the Box studio at Bamako Estate, Ojodu, Lagos.
Joining the rappers, comedians, drummers, dancers and singers who thronged the venue were skaters, magicians, contortionists and many more unique talents who waited eagerly on the queue for an opportunity to display their various talents.
13 years old Korede Odukale Albert stood out with his green and gold traditional costume as he rendered notes long before his audition. The talented student serenaded the judges with his performance of Lagbaja’s Nothing for you. “I have no fears in this competition as I have always being unique and performed beyond expectation since I learnt how to play the saxophone 3 years ago,” says Koresax.
Kemi Famugbole, using her local drums to produce traditional beats left everyone dancing. The 34-year-old mother of three said; “I have an 8 to 6pm job, but drumming is my hobby and I also teach as a dance instructor.”
“Starting the regional auditions, we knew Lagos was going to massive, but we were shocked on getting to the venue to realize that some acts spent the night at the gate due to the environmental sanitation,” said Mrs. Ugochi Pedro, Executive Producer of Special Project and Head of Legal Affairs, Optima Media Group.
The audition train began in Abuja on October 9, and toured Calabar on October 12th. Port Harcourt, Enugu, Asaba, Benin and Ibadan are October 15, 17, 19, 21 and 23 respectively.
