Contestants square up for God’s Children Great Talent Finale
After weeks of tight competition among contestants during the regional and quarterfinals, God’s Children Great Talent (GCGT) has entered the Grand Finale. The competition, which saw over 2,000 entrants, who participated for free, has over the past couple of months pruned down to 10 finalists.
A social development project of the RCCG Apapa family, the show distinguished itself this year by opening up its doors to a wide range of non – RCCG contestants across Nigeria. The gospel talent hunt is focused on discovering, grooming and producing young talents and stars in various fields of artistic expressions across Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States of America.
This year’s grand finale will be taking place on the May 30, at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. The competition will be presided over by leading performing and non-performing artistes, who will join the audience to vote for the winner, who will go home with N5million star prize.
Sarah Boulous, Founder of the Society for performing Acts of Nigeria (SPAN), Uti Nwachukwu, Dayo Benjamin-Laniyun, Wale Oni, Youth Maverick, Zuriel Oduwole, Jeremiah Gyang and many others are the Grand finale Judges, while Cobhams Asuquo will be the guest artiste for the evening.
One of the highlights of this year’s event is the release of a single by the GCGT Season 5 Brand Ambassador Ms. Praise Olorunsuyi, an undergraduate of the University of Lagos, who won in the singing category in 2015.
Speaking on the project, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Head of Apapa Family, explained that the vision of the initiative is to engage children/teens in a positive way, using their talents to glorify God in his words.
“God’s Children’s Great Talent was born out of a desire to identify and nurture the diverse talents available in children. We are delighted a multinational brand such as Cadbury Bournvita, The Address Homes limited, Airtel, The Riverbank School, Alexander Forbes, Businessday and many other media partners are sponsors of the 2016 edition.”
This year’s competition, which is produced in Nigeria by OHTV, is airs on DSTV’s Africa Magic, Dove Television and Wazobia TV. Viewers will be able to follow the journey of the contestants from audition to the grand finale, where the winner will walk away with an NGN5million prize, including a production contract, talent development packages and other attractive prizes.
