Aniagwu congratulated the top 20 contestants for having sailed through to the finals out of the hundreds of people who enrolled for the auditions, while at the same time commended the SSA for not focusing on just the top three, as is the usual case, but making room for more talents cutting across different genres of the art of entertainment.
While noting that human beings were the genuine gold to invested on, Aniagwu advised the contestants to be humble, focused and be prepared to learn from veterans, stressing that they should not put money first at the early stage of their career, but rather focus on creating a name and a brand for themselves.
The further stressed the need for them to be humble as they go about their pursuing their dreams and aspirations, saying,’Even when you are so good in what you do as a singer, an actor or a comedian; if you are pompous, arrogant and disrespectful, what ever you do will amount to nothing.”
Earlier Ogusbaba stated that the “Made In Delta Search For Talent ” was borne out of the desire to bring more than entertainment, but also to discover, develop and promote talents in the state.
He commended the commissioner for his enormous contribution to the progress of the state since his appointment, stating that it was always a pleasure to meet and interact with commissioner.
