N10 million, record deal for grab as GIA targets next-rated Christian artistes | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News



Organisers of Gospel Icon Africa (GIA) talent show have expressed readiness to unearth next-rated Christian artistes to give up-coming gospel artistes a platform to show their talents.

They disclosed that the winner of the show, which starts this month, would walk home with N10 million, a car, and a two-year record deal.

Other winners have incentives like cash prizes and iPhones, among others.

Chief Operating Director, GIA, Segun Oluwayomi, explained that the GIA talent show would be unique to other talent shows, urging all Christians, who can sing to apply.

He noted that apart from the cash prizes and other rewards, the talent show aimed at producing the next-rated gospel artiste in Africa.

Oluwayomi said: “GIA reality show is a unique gospel reality show because our core is to raise kingdom stars. We have various gospel music veterans that will work them through the journey. Also, everyone that makes an entry is sure to be imparted in one way or the other, you cannot connect with us and remain the same.

“The programme is in phases, the first phase is the entry phase where people will register on our website www.gospeliconsafrica.com, and they are to upload a 30secs video of themselves singing.

“After that, there will be auditioning for these videos will be done by selected music veterans. Then, the successful participants will be contacted for a life show.”

Also, Managing Director, GIA, Esther Oladeji, said the show would create a platform for true worshippers to connect with God and bless humanity.

Speaking about the vision that led to the birth of the show, Oladeji said, “it is to please God, and because we desired to do his will, He has led us through pattern and structure he wants us to go.
“It is to change the narratives of gospel music in Africa, by modeling God’s template of true Gospel music. Also, to give up-and-coming Gospel artistes a platform to show forth their light.”

Chief Executive Director, GIA, Bamidele Martins, noted that the show is a form of empowerment for up-and-coming gospel singers, including professionals.

To participate, he asked interested individuals to visit the event website www.gospeliconsafrica.com, upload their 30 seconds video and await feedback within a few hours.
