AS viewers get set for upcoming BET reality series, Top Actor Africa, which is expected to hit TV screen next month, Nigerian actors Tobechi Nneji, Uriel Oputa and Ifeanyi Dike are hoping to fly the flag for Nigeria and make the nation proud in the contest.
The 3 Nigerians join nine other hopefuls from South, East and West Africa, who were shortlisted after grueling auditions held in Johannesburg, Durban, Lagos and Nairobi. Hoping to see their names in lights are South Africans Shamilla Miller and Simhle Belinda Plaatjies from Cape Town, Farrell Drew from Durban and Marilyn Sekgapane, Jesse Suntele, Hendrik Lombard and Sabelo Sibeko from Johannesburg. East African hopefuls, Lorreine Wangui Gakuo and Alex Khayo from Kenya, will join them.
Top Actor Africa will be testing the actors to the limits in nine acting challenges, taking them through every acting genre from Improv to Comedy, Theatre, Soapie, Commercial, Romance, Horror, Drama and Action. They will have the unique opportunity to work with industry insiders from the local industry and Hollywood including celebrity actors, casting agents, directors, producers, managers and writers as they fight to stay in the competition and keep their acting dreams alive.
The contestants will be competing for the chance to win the title of Top Actor Africa. At stake is a career-launching prize package that includes US$10,000 in cash, a one-year contract with international representation and access to Hollywood auditions
According to Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, VIMN Africa, “We send our congratulations and best wishes to all the contestants, who have made the final cut in Top Actor Africa. We are thrilled to have developed this powerful and proven platform for discovering and empowering African acting talent, and we look forward to seeing the drama unfold in season 2,” he said.
