From a pool of over 1,000 audition entries, 14 young talents have been selected as lead characters for the Life 101 TV series.
The selected cast members include Emeka Nwagbaraocha, Benjamin Touitou, Patrick Fakoya, Paulette Iwenjiora, Flora Chiedo, Pearl Wats, Malachi Alozie, Tega Olose as well as Chiagoziem Nwakanma. The others are Shadrach Iwebendu, Jeffery Achu, Efa Iwara, Kester Oshioreame, and Abimbola Ademoye.
The selection process for the 20-episode TV series involved series of rigorous auditions which held in Lagos, Port-Harcourt, Calabar and Benin.
The TV series seeks to project the “can-do” attitude that drives Nigerians.
“Celebrating and promoting the amazing “can-do” attitude in Nigerian Youth is one thing Malta Guinness exists to do and we are very excited to be part of this drama series with Ebony Life TV,” said Ifeoma Agu, brand manager Malta Guinness.
Ebony Life noted that getting the final cast members was tough, owing to the wide pool of talent.
Quinty Pillay, Ebony Life director of scripted programming, said: “The selection of the final casts from the auditions was a tough one for us. We received great talents from the various states we had the auditions, the energy, brilliance and the selfless attitude of the talents was indeed a great one to be part of. We are pleased to be involved in youth development and empowerment.”
Life 101 is being produced by Ebony Life TV and powered by Malta Guinness.
