Many Nigerians and Africans at large are unemployed mostly because our society does not impact the needed skills that will enable such skilled individual (s) become self-reliant. As such they now depend on white collar jobs that are either not available or too few to go round. Government at different levels have organized skill acquisition programs both for graduates and the general masses but sadly the needed result have not been achieved. This is partly due to the fact that the trainees lack entrepreneurial skills and platforms to showcase what they’ve learnt.
In seeking for the way forward, the management of WAFFITV came up with this laudable project to complement the effort of the Nigerian Government by creating a reliable platform for the nurturing and exhibition of such talent and equipping them with the needed entrepreneurial skills and funds that will enable them survive in this our present harsh business climate.
THE SKILL TO STARDOM 2020 initiative is a reality TV show designed to empower Nigerians nationwide and subsequent editions of this laudable reality TV show will cover the entire African continent. WAFFITV is set to make sure industrialization remains a valid system in Nigeria. We are focused on bringing out real skills and innovations from Nigerians. This contest is opened to all Nigerians that have acquired a skill either formally or informally and all applicant must have attained the age of 18 as at September, 2020.
This reality TV show beacons on how 60 skilled Nigerians from the following skilled set will slug it out in THE SKILL TO STARDOM HOUSE for 60 days.
- FASHION DESIGN
- GRAPHIC DESIGN
- HAIR STYLING
- SHOE MAKING
- OTHER INNOVATIVE SKILLS , EITHER MENTIONED OR NOT
All the above listed skills and any other innovative skill that the judges will approve during the auditioning process. WAFFITV has a nationwide coverage and this program will aired on WAFFI TV and other national television stations as well as Social media platforms for 60 days.

Those that couldn’t get past the auditioning stage will not be left aside as we’ve made arrangements for entrepreneurial training during which resource materials will be given to them for free. THE SKILL TO STARDOM REALITY TV SHOW 2020 will commence by September 2020 and the successful 60 applicants drawn from all over Nigeria will assemble at THE SKILL TO STARDOM house where strict rules will be put in place to ensure the proper behavior of each contestant and make sure they don’t get involved in any immoral act. Any of the house mate that violates the rules guiding the house stands the risk of instant eviction.
This project is not all about winning but leaving an indelible impact on the society and Nigeria at large. Based on this, the leadership and managerial skills of the housemates will be put to the test. Eviction will commence from the third week and it will be strictly based on viewer’s voting and the way to vote will be shown to the viewers during the broadcast of the show.
FATE OF EVICTED HOUSEMATES
THE SKILL TO STARDOM 2020 initiative is not leaving anyone behind and that is why each evicted housemate will not go home empty handed. The longer you’re able to remain in the house the bigger the package you will go home with. For the first week of eviction, evicted housemates are going home with a starter pack worth the amount as given below.
