Catholic Church unveils reality TV show


Reverend Ignatius Kaigama

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Grace, Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, has blessed and endorsed Catholics Are Talented (CAT) reality show to drive grassroots awareness and create abundant opportunities for talented youths.

Kaigama stated this during a media briefing to announce the commencement of the first season of the show in Abuja recently.

He said no fewer than 20 talented youths would emerge in 2021 CAT Tv reality show.

The bishop, who was represented by the Youth Chaplain of the Archdiocese of Abuja, Reverend Father Johnsixtus Okonkwo, said: “Concerned about the spiritual and physical wellbeing of youths in Nigeria and against the backdrop that most TV reality shows are immoral and dominated by nudity and acts that do not glorify the name of God, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Grace, Most Reverend Ignatius Kaigama blessed and endorsed the show.”


He noted that the first winner will go home with N1 million, first and second runners-up will get N500,000 and N300,000 respectively with other consolation prizes.

In his address, the project’s Coordinator, Dr Anthony Obiora, explained that the show would elicit a sense of hardwork and produce winners, who will join the league of celebrities and have opportunity to represent Nigeria and Africa on the international stage.

He said: “The housemates will have a total of nine engagements with guests spread across different professions and industries.

“Each of these guests, during their visits, will speak to them about their various professions and inspire the housemates on how to be successful and make a living from the various fields,” he said

Speaking earlier, the Head of Production, Onyekwere Godwin, said the programme would be aired every day on Africa Independent Television and Catholic Television as well as streamed live on social media for one week in August.

He said: “The show was birthed primarily to provide Catholics with the opportunity to launch and expand their creative careers.

“Also, to bring together talented Catholics from across the country and in the diaspora in a contest that will produce winners, who will join the league of Nigeria’s biggest stars and have the opportunity to represent Nigeria and Africa in the international stage.”
