Nigeria: Arinze Auditions for Talent Hunts

Nollywood actor Segun Arinze has conducted auditions for his upcoming TV series. No less than 50 prospective actors between ages ten and 50 and proficient in English Language were screened for various roles.

Speaking on the project, Arinze said "this production I am working on is quite unique and will set a new standard in this industry. We no longer have kid actors in Nigeria and this is part of the problems we will solve.

"It is high time viewers got more value for their money. From the crew to the cast and story line, we will definitely raise the bar," he said.
