With speak like a champion, AbiolaChamp grooms next generation leaders
The contest will see top three winners to go home with N2million, N1million and N500,000 respectively.
The initiative, according to the organisers, is a quest to discover raw talents in the art of speaking, who will be groomed to become exceptional leaders, through a robust curriculum in a rigorous Academy.
These participants will be trained by the very best to acquire the essential knowledge, skills and attitude that will position them on a fast-track lane towards achieving whatever dream is in their hearts.
With a mandate to inspire 1 billion people to rock their world like champions, the reality TV show will provides viewers with a unique blend of entertainment and education with the opportunity of following the activities as the participants learn, compete and grow towards their aspiration to become skillful, sought-after and successful personalities.
The talent competition also involves audience participation. Therefore, the public will decide which contestants are to be eliminated on a weekly basis via SMS, mobile site and desktop website voting respectively.
Speaking at a media briefing held recently in Lagos to herald the project, the founder Abiola Salami said, ‘’Communication is perhaps the most important skill in the world as we use heavily in social, professional and domestic circles.
However, little attention is paid to appreciating, developing and maximizing this critical skill.
Available data suggests that the average age in Nigeria is 17.9 years – thus any conversation about peace, progress and productivity for the country should be targeted at developing the productive capacity and competence of this demography – hence the need to the develop the most important skill among millennials.”
With the ambitious, but very achievable target of reaching a minimum of ten (10) million millennials with the show, Speak Like A Champion, Salami noted, will foster idea generation among millennials, build their confidence, empower them to become employable, as well as position them to become self-reliant with entrepreneurship.
The initiative also aims to prevent millennials from engaging in drug abuse, violence, advance fee fraud and other vices.
Aside the top winners, other participants in the competition will also be awarded with consolation prizes.
