For the very first time in the history of music reality shows in
Nigeria, there would be a reality show which will be headlined by
Christians who have passion for singing and have been yearning for a
platform where they can express and showcase their musical talents;
this
dream has now been brought alive by Destiny Child gospel music talent
hunt.

The Destiny Child platform is one that has been developed to showcase
and harness the hidden gospel talents who cannot shine
on other secular platforms in the country because of the style and
nature of their songs.

Registration for the Destiny Child is free. Interested persons are
hereby enjoined to visit the website at www.destinychild.com.ng [1].
Auditions will be conducted in six zones; Abuja, Musa Yar’Adua Centre,

Samsong will lead the panel of judges; other members of the panel

the viewing public’s vote through sms messages and the judges at 50
percent respectively.

In a statement by U-cheena, the producer of the show ‘’98% of
secular musicians are Christians who got career boost while singing in
the church, and based on their individual vocational assessment, they
were certified as great talented musicians, but absence of potential
sponsorship within Nigerian Christian community literally deprived them
opportunities in gospel music hence the reason they subscribed to
secular music which attracts sponsorship based on its societal
acceptance and moral decadence in the Nigerian community and
entertainment sector’’.
