Channels TV Launches New Business Reality Show Titled ‘Fund It Forward’
Ever since the highly anticipated finale of Big Brother Naija, people have been discussing potential new reality TV series.
With its newest business program, Fund It Forward, Channels TV is venturing into the reality market in an effort to bridge that gap.
It is anticipated that the TV program will consist of a competition aimed at developing twelve young Nigerians into the future generation of social entrepreneurs.
The Channels TV original series, which features Udo Okonjo, Lanre Bamisebi, and Iyin Aboyeji as judges, will run for nine episodes. Every episode will feature evictions as judges select the contestants they believe possess the skills and business acumen necessary to succeed as entrepreneurs.
“These challenges will reflect the real-world stages of building an impact-driven business, so that as our viewers watch, they will be educated about’socialpreneurship’ and empowered themselves,” a statement on the show’s website read.
The brief video, which Channels shared on social media, provided an up-close look at each of the 12 participants’ diverse businesses, which ranged from sustainable energy solutions to agriculture and finance.
The top three competitors will get mentorship, business training possibilities, and grants of unknown amounts.
Compared to more entertainment-focused shows like BBNaija and The Real Housewives of Lagos, Fund It Forward provides something unique.
The show premiered exclusively via Channels TV on Sunday, October 15, 2023, and will continue to air on DSTV channel 420, Sky UK channel 515, StarTimes channel 111 and GOTV channel 27.
