Nigeria’s ‘Lion’s Den’ TV reality show underway
The Nigerian version of the globally acclaimed business reality television show, ‘Lions’ Den’ is currently in the works.
The producer of the show, Ultima Studios, revealed this last Wednesday during a media interview in Lagos.
The show, the first of its kind in Nigeria, is a variation of the original show that was first aired in Japan and has now been produced in over 30 countries.
The show targets entrepreneurs who have good business ideas but need to raise funds to advance their business.
In his address, the CEO of Ultima Studios, Femi Ayeni, said an agreement has been reached with UK-based Sony Pictures Television to produce the reality show in Nigeria.
He said, “Ultima’s choice of Lions’ Den as its next venture is a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit of Nigerians. The programme will not only provide exciting viewing for viewers at home; but will also provide an opportunity for serious entrepreneurs to attract much-needed investments.
”Furthermore, as has been the case in all other countries where the show is running, it is not just the entrepreneurs but also the viewers at home that will benefit from the comments made by the Lions.”
