News recently hit the media waves about how an eight-year-old girl won this year’s edition of the Nigeria Got Talent reality show. Meanwhile, Amarachi Uyanne, the eight-year old dance sensation, has already reeled out plans in respect of how she is going to spend her N10 million grand prize.
A truly brilliant and philanthropic-minded child, Amarachi has said that apart from having a plan to pursue her education abroad in due time, she also has a strong desire to use part of her prize money to help orphans and the needy in the society. Her words: “I want to study abroad with the money I won and also, I want to help orphans and the needy in our society.”
Amarachi was indeed not the only kid revelation at the NGT. Several others showed up but did not go beyond the auditions. Yet, a few others like 11 years-old singer, Raji Oluwayomi, Dan Samuel Okon, Crystal Core, 12 years old rapper Olayemi John Pelumi made it to the semi-finals while 11 years old singer Oluwatoke Salami and the duo of Jesse and Oghomwen, both 13 and 11 respectively made the top four finalists.
Therefore, speaking on the performance of the youngsters on the show, Airtel’s Chief Marketing Officer, Olu Akanmu, said, it was indicative of the depth of talents in the country and the commitment of the operator to create respectable platforms for talent discovery and nurturing.
