New Showmax original comedy series Ghana Jollof, executive produced by Nigerian comedian Basketmouth (aka Bright Okpocha), has begun auditions.
Aspiring Ghanaian TV stars living in Lagos or Accra aged between 20 and 60 are expected to upload a two-minute video with a monologue of their choice on Instagram with the hashtag #GhanaJollofShowmax, including their name, phone number and location.
Basketmouth, who will also star in the show, said: “Ghanaians are our next-door neighbours and both countries have always been intertwined in both music and movies. I believe in the mutual growth of the entertainment industry for both countries.
“I’m also incredibly passionate about the discovery and promotion of new talent, and with Showmax at the forefront of promoting local African content, it is my belief that we’re set to unleash incredible new talent.”
On the choice of title, he added: “For those wondering why we went with Ghana Jollof, you’ll just have to watch the show and find out.”
The deadline for audition is July 20.
