As part of his desire to open indigenes and residents of Anambra to the Entertainment world, Business mogul, and philanthropist, Valentine Ozigbo is launching a virtual talent contest tagged, Anambra Talent Unlocked.
According to the business mogul who addressed a group of supporters at Oba in Idemili LGA, he thought it necessary to extend the Unlocked brand into the entertainment industry, owing to the impressive success of the Freestyle Unlocked Africa 2020 contest.
The Anambra Talent Unlocked is created because Valentine believes that there is innate greatness in every individual. However, that pool of talent needs an opportunity for expression.
According to a statement published by the Valentine Chineto Ozigbo (VCO) Foundation, the contest is open to people from Anambra State who live in Nigeria or residents of the southeastern State.
To participate, contestants will have to record a one-minute video of their performance in any of the four categories, music, dance, drama, or comedy, and email the video to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
Various cash prizes totaling N500, 000 are to be won in what promises to be the first of its kind in the country.
In his words, we made history in freestyle football last month, when we succeeded at doing what we set out to do, which was to UNLOCK the UNLIMITED human potential by exploring and exploiting technologies to overcome the barriers of the COVID-19 lockdowns,” Mr. Ozigbo told his supporters.
“Pulled by this grand vision of our Foundation, we are replicating this concept and extending the opportunity to Ndi Anambra to overcome the challenges of the times and be discovered, cultivated, and celebrated.”
Anambra Talent UNLOCKED is a platform for indigenes of Anambra in four performing arts – drama, dance, music, and comedy, to showcase their unique talent. It is sponsored by Valentine Chineto Ozigbo (VCO) Foundation, a philanthropical endeavor founded by the business leader.
Mr. Ozigbo is one of the leading aspirants in the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election. He is a member of the People’s Democratic Party
