Mama G goes talent hunting
The veteran actress who is smiling to the bank on the bill of MTN as one of the giant telecom company’s most celebrated faces is sharing her bounties with aspiring stars from her constituency and only last week organised a three-day screening to sieve out true talents from the sea of wanabes who came storming the initiative being put together by the Nollywood’s Queen Mother and her partners.
Though the idea to go hunting for fresh bloods is basically hers, she is being supported by others who have come on the train as partners. And to set the record straight the group founded an entertainment company named Dominion Entertainment Limited, simply abbreviated DEL.
According to Ejiro Okurame, who was one of Nollywood stars at the three-day screening exercise that held in Enugu ”the company is meant to help develop raw talents of future entertainers who want to showcase what they have but have not been opportuned to do so due to the harassment and intimidation by some producers who take advantage of them.
Its headquarters is in the coal city (Enugu) where one of Nollywood’s icon was discovered and still resides, Patience Ozorkwo aka Mama G” she said
“The motto of the company is, creativity and morals. Its vision: promoting Christian values through entertainment and media. Objectives; to produce quality Nigerian movies that will instill Christian values; to correct the moral decadence in the movie industry; to provide a platform harnessing and promoting talents in the Christendom; to create job opportunities for the Nigerian citizen. Values; morality,hardwork and commitment, quality, integrity and creativity” she added
