Television is about to get more exciting as Africa Magic, provider of premium African entertainment, is launching The Voice Nigeria, a Nigerian version of the internationally acclaimed reality singing competition. Auditions begin on the 8th of January 2016 and the show begins airing in April 2016.
Since its original launch in 2010, The Voice has gone on to win over audiences in countries like the US, Australia and the UK, where renowned artists including Adam Levine, Blake Sheldon, Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Tom Jones, Pharrell Williams, Kylie Minogue and Ricky Martin have occupied the show’s famous red chairs as coaches. The Voice Nigeria employs the same format including a panel of four coaches who critique the contestants’ performances. The coaches guide their teams of selected artists through the remainder of the season whilst also competing to ensure that their act wins the competition.
The Director, M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of The Voice Nigeria. All over the world lovers of entertainment recognise The Voice franchise as premium, exciting entertainment and we are thrilled to introduce this excitement to audiences in Nigeria and across Africa. Our viewers will definitely enjoy the stellar performances by the artistes and all the excitement as the coaches compete to pick the best performers.”
