The 2nd Runner-Up of MTN Project Fame West Africa Season 5, Adetoun Oshodi, says more than 70 pupils from 70 schools have registered for the second edition of her 3D Kids Talent Hunt in Ibadan.

Supreme reports that the 70 pupils are those who made it to the finals of the talent hunt.

Supreme also reports that the pupils, who are from secondary schools in Oyo State, will be jostling for the grand prize in the event, billed for May 26 at Jogor Centre, Ibadan.

Oshodi pointed out that her passion for children brought about the competition.

“I want to help them further harness their innate abilities and limitless potentials, assist them to see the amazing possibilities in music and set them on the path of tremendous success,” she said.

Oshodi said that the competition was about talent discovery and nurturing to full potentials.

“The winner will get N250,000 reward but that is not what the competition is all about. We will also make them know that everything is not always about money.

“The plans for eventual winners are to promote them locally and also, with the help of their parents, assist them in starting career in music as well as showcase them in most of the local events in Ibadan city.

“My take on talent shows for kids is simple: I know most parents are scared of allowing their kids to be in the limelight because they are going to be molested.

“Most parents also feel that the kids are going to be exposed to things they are not supposed to have access to, but I strongly believe that most of them need to know their talents,” she said.

Oshodi said her team first took the idea of the event to secondary schools, which, in turn, linked them with both the students and parents, thus helping the kids to have sense of belonging.

“ From my own point of view, we do not have enough children talent shows in Nigeria. Parents are scared of exposing their children to elicit contents in the few available talent shows in the country,” she said.

Oshodi urged parents, whose children were interested in singing, to keep encouraging and supporting them in acquiring more talents.

“No talent is a waste. They should also encourage them to be focused and not give up on their dreams.

“I advise these future stars to know their strong and weak points, as these will help them focus their strength on particular aspects of entertainment and maximise their potentials,” she said.

Supreme reports that the maiden edition of the talent hunt was won by an 11-year-old Ayomide Olubowale.

She added that she was in touch with the winner of the maiden edition and watching his progress.

“He resides in Lagos now and is doing beautifully well as an artist, with the help of his parents. We are going to have him as one of our guest artists at the grand finale.

“I am also monitoring him to ensure that he maintains a balance between his education and singing. I always let them know that it is very important to be educated,” she said.
