The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has endorsed the Basement Search Reality TV Show, saying the project when concluded will provide new stars from all over Nigeria including Nasarawa indigenes that could take over from the big names in the industry when the time comes.

Speaking to Daybreak newspapers exclusively, National President of AGN, Emeka Roland, who was one of the judges at the Abuja audition, said over 300 persons showed up for the audition, adding that it was eventful.

He continued: ”We closed Abuja audition at about twelve midnight. It was massive because this is the first reality TV show on film. They were not looking for musicians, dancers but were out looking out for actors,” saying this is a first-of-a-kind show.
