'We're the greatest nation on earth. Everything points to that, including the God-given talent that's just everywhere you turn to. From the experience last year, it's clear that we will have even a more difficult time deciding who will rule this year. Nigeria's got talent, by every definition of the word.

“Everyone is inspired by Amarachi’s story. But really it could be the story of any talented Nigerian who is willing to explore his dream. This is why we are delighted to partner with Nigeria’s Got Talent in the search for Nigeria’s biggest and brightest talents across the country” notes Obinna Anichie, General Manager Brand Assets, & Marketing Properties at Marketing Director Bharti Airtel International.
