Reality TV has proven to be an alternative means of making money apart from making movies in Nigeria’s entertainment industry. Reality shows have enjoyed massive followership in Nigeria with subgenres like Job search, reality competition/game shows, but the celebrity subgenre is something that is new in Nigeria. The ice was however broken with the widely publicised Omotola’s ‘The Real Me’ which airs on Africa Magic.
Nollywood actress Laide Bakare has also started her reality show titled ‘My Xperience’, and according to the producers, the show will portray her every day work, plans, and all the stress that comes with her success.
Apart from Laide’s new show, sources say there are several other celebrities working on similar shows. When singer Goldie passed away, it was revealed she was working on a reality show with best friend and Channel O presenter Denrele. In fact, a few episodes were said to have been shot before her death.
The show will premiere next week on syndicate local channels STV, TVC and AIT.
