. ….Set to promote Gender Equality and Women Empowerment through Music and Entertainment
“Sometimes it goes beyond searching for real talent, beyond crowning a winner, beyond making a new star. Sometimes it’s about championing a course!
All over the country there are women, ladies, girls; wishing, longing, yearning for that shot, that opportunity, that voice, that one chance to pursue what they believe in, with no hinderances, no excuses, no reasons, no holds-barred. But unfortunately, many never get this ‘shot’, ‘opportunity’, ‘voice’ or ‘chance’, just because they are female.” – OLAYINKA EDU, C.E.O Platinum Entertainment.
Here is to create the SHOT, the OPPORTUNITY, the VOICE, and the CHANCE for the female gender from Nigeria and beyond , as we groom, make and mould future STARS through the incredible music/talent show, LADY OF SONGS.
Gender Equality is one of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) issues which governments world over are making efforts to attain by 2015. It is also an issue that the United Nation (UN) is challenging Nations to attain, Nigeria inclusive.
Lady Of Songs, is an annual reality show primarily focused on promoting gender equality and women empowerment. All contestants are female and no matter who gets evicted when, everyone leaves as winners, because the show isn’t poised at having a winner who goes home with the grand prize at the end of the day alone, but also on building on other potentials discovered in each contestant to serve as an empowerment avenue for her.
The winner goes home with a brand new car, a one year record deal and a sum of three (3) million Naira, whilst the runners up as well as other contestants will have reasonable deals to take home as well.
In order to further solidify the essence of this special show, each edition will highlight and celebrate a feminine musical icon. The maiden edition is dedicated to the Late Lady of Songs Christy Essien Igbokwe (MFR) for her immense contributions in the Nigerian Music industry.
A call for entries will be announced soon. This one is for the ladies. Ladies with voices that thrill, in search of the ultimate singer, the LADY OF SONGS!
