PRESS RELEASE

Governor initiates reality TV show for orphanages
By Nkemjika Chileetam

In a unique show of concern for the less privileged, Prince Tonye Princewill, a PDP Chieftain and Leader of Princewill Political Associates (PPA) has pumped in the sum of N120M in collaborate with Adonis Productions to organize the first ever Reality TV show for orphans under the umbrella of Melody Shelters.


In an online press release made available by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka, the image maker to Prince Tonye noted that: “The show will bring together amazing talents from different orphanages across Nigeria. The program that started with 40 Orphanages now has eight finalists currently camped in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital for the grand finale coming up in a few weeks

According to the release, eight finalists have each been assigned a dedicated musical coach who is responsible for training them on their chosen songs for the first two weeks before the stage performances commence this weekend. STV and CTL are expected to air this unique event from Friday 13th of April 2012 and will be showing every Friday and Saturday at 5:30pm while on Sunday it will show at 5:00pm.

The show will feature singing groups from eight finalist orphanages with the winning three taking home the final set of prizes. The featured orphanages are: Gidan Bege Orphanage (Benue State), Godswill Ophanage (Kogi State),Adonai Orphanage (Kaduna State), Rachael Homes (Abuja), Susanna homes (Abia State), Lifetime Caring Orphanage (Rivers State), Edo Orphanage (Edo State) and Compassion Orphanage (Edo State).

Performances will be judged by professional musician judges with the viewers at home also having a chance to contribute. All the events and performances will be recorded and broadcast on television. Eighteen million Naira will be won in prizes by the first three with the winning orphanage taking home Ten million Naira in cash.


Prince Tonye Princewill is a politician of repute, who anchors his foray in politics on his need to engineer change and sees his involvement in such projects as a way of appreciating the less privileged and the down trodden. With Melody Shelters, he is using his little resources to affect their lives whilst also acknowledging and supporting the contributions of people like Adonijah Owiriwa who like him have chosen to use their craft as a vehicle for change. To him life is nothing if we can't impact on those who have little as opposed those who have a lot.


This is the fourth initiative so far, in as many months – already he has given 25 million to the Port Harcourt Polo club, 26 million towards Microfinance for rural women, several million towards setting up a 3D studio for film academy scholars and now this. His eagerly awaited entertainment fund is expected to be launched next month in a soon to be announced collaboration with Grafton and Tamsrecords with the Consiglieres and other corporate partners already signed up. Add this to his previous works with women groups, scholarship programs, employment generation opportunities, youth mentoring initiatives and already attracted investment and his commonly used phrase continues to make sense, “You are blessed to bless others.” 


It is expected that these efforts will encourage others to help in their own little way. "Orphans did not ask to be born and can only believe God has a purpose for their life. Many of us have been fortunate enough to know the feeling of being loved and cared for by parents. That in itself is a blessing. If we can give back something and touch someone, God will never forget it, even if the orphans do. But if you ask me I will tell you that my experience with orphans is they do not underestimate the power of human kindness because that is what makes the difference between whether they will eat or not. Help them and you will never regret it

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
