Themed as The Unstoppable, the new season is on the look-out for business ideas that are immune to any pandemic, innovations that break boundaries and technologies that can survive any lockdown.

Production company Bravopoints International is seeking ambitious Nigerian entrepreneurs aged between 22 and 40 who can demonstrate their entrepreneurial acumen with unbeatable business ideas, commercial insights and business savvy. You can register by clicking here.

The top 50 contestants from the online auditions will be selected to take part in a two-week online bootcamp where they will use ‘dashboards’ to connect with one another and the bootcamp administrators and judges.

Then 25 of the 50 will be invited to Lagos for another two-week online bootcamp. The group also will be isolated in a resort or hotel and tested for Covid-19 by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

After their isolation, the 25 will have another physical bootcamp for both entertainment and final auditions before the top 16 are certified with a clean bill of health and moved to the Titan House for the main show.

They will live together for 10 weeks while facing a number of tough business tasks and avoiding eviction, with hopes of winning the cash prize of N10m and a new car to support their business idea.

The judges are top Nigerian business leaders and include board members Lilian Olubi, Chris Parkes, Tonye Cole and lead judge Kyari Bukar.

The show will air on Sundays on DStv Africa Magic channel 154/GoTV Channel 25 and on Saturdays on TVC and DStv channel 418. Previous winners were skincare entrepreneur Ogechukwu Alexis Obah and Amifeoluwa Yakubu.

The Next Titan is sponsored by Heritage Bank and its Lagos-based prodco Bravopoints is also behind other business-themed TV programmes such as The Proteges Nigeria, The Mavericks and Conversations With the Colossus.

Africa Magic lines up Next Titan S5

The fifth season of reality show The Next Titan is set to be aired after 18 finalists were selected to take part in the show at a live event held at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos.

The aim of the programme is to encourage Nigeria’s young people to harness their creativity and pursue their entrepreneurial goals. The winner goes away with N5m (US$13,800) and a new car.

One of the judges of the show, Chris Parkes, CEO of CPMS Africa, said the series would be of great value to the economy. “We have raised the standards. It is not going to be easy as we want to make sure contestants are disciplined in their various areas. We will also ensure the eventual winner of the show will be given the support needed to excel,” he said.

Also present at the Oriental Hotel event were Foluso Phillips, chairman of Phillips Consulting; Dr Ifie Sekibo, MD at Heritage Bank; and Yetunde Odejayi, deputy governor of Lagos State.

Sekibo said: “Despite the diverse resources available in the country, the unemployment rates seem to be increasing. Our population is growing and we are pouring out raw talents every day. Our youths need to uncap the wells and let their ideas flow.”

The Next Titan is produced by Lagos-based Bravopoints International and sponsored by Heritage Bank. It will start airing on Africa Magic Family Channel on September 30.
