The Maltavator Challenge, a talent competition organised by Nigerian beverage company Malta Guinness, has held another set of auditions, this time in the city of Enugu.
The auditions took place at the Polo Park shopping complex in Enugu in early November. The contestants engaged in challenging obstacle courses, as well as physical and mental games.
Participants included Godswill Chibuike, Ugochukwu Ugwoke, Chinedu Ifezue and Chinenyenwa Ogbodo, who would later compete with other finalists for the final spots on Team Nigeria.
Omotola Bamigbaiye-Elatuyi, marketing manager of premium non-alcoholic drinks at Malta Guinness, said: “The Maltavator Challenge is in line with the brand purpose of Malta Guinness, which exists to fuel the can-do spirit of everyday Nigerians.
“We have been to Ibadan and Benin and now it is the turn of Enugu. We are excited about the huge turnout of Nigerian youths in Enugu to contest for a chance to represent Nigeria in the pan-African TV show.”
There will be further auditions in major Nigerian cities in search of more contestants to take part in the second season of The Maltavator Challenge.
The new series will see contestants from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroun, Ivory Coast and Ethiopia compete on mentally and physically challenging obstacle courses for a chance to win US$20,000 and other prizes.
The show will be aired on major TV stations across Nigeria and participating African countries.
