Ace comic actor, Victor Osuagwu and his partner, Silas Ugochukwu have revealed plans to embark on talents hunt in order to give budding talents in the country the opportunity to announce themselves to the world.
The duo intend to accomplish this onerous task through their newly formed Nollywood Comedy Club, which currently boasts of more 7,000 membership strength.
Osuagwu and Orikoha made this known, recently while unveiling the official logo of the club in Lagos.
According to the humour merchant, the club which was formed last December to provide a platform for aspiring stars to showcase their talents is growing in leaps and bounds.
Osuagwu said,”Trying to make a name was quite tough for many of us back then because not many people wanted to give us the necessary support. Having experienced this and seeing what many of today’s youths are passing through, we decided to create this platform to address that problem.
“At the moment, we have created a television series with shooting going on in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Over the next few weeks, we shall be going round the country to hunt for new talents. It is our own little way of giving back to the industry that has made us stars.”
Co-founder of the club, Silas Ugochukwu, said they have erected proper structures to ensure that the initiative operates without hitch while striving to achieve its main targets.
“You don’t have to be a comedian to be a member. That does not mean that AGN does not exist. One of the criteria is to be a member of AGN before you become our member”.
We have representatives in all the states of the federation. We have also registered another organisation with some people we called Nollywood Health and Entertainment Limited. Under this platform, we will be treating all health related issues. We will be doing seminars, lectures, summit and even awards on health. Our way of life affects our health.”
