As ‘Heart & Soul’, a medico-spiritual TV series shot by renowned filmmaker Obi Emelonye premieres on Africa Magic Showcase Channel 150 today Tuesday June 4, 2019, it will be availing opportunities to young Nigerians interested in taking part in the film and television industry when they engage with the TV series on social media (Facebook: Heart & Soul NG and Instagram: @heartandsoulng).

The TV series which starts at 5.30pm (WAT) and will run every weekday, was shot under the The Obi Emelonye Foundation’s ‘50-50 Legacy’ project.

The project is an initiative to offer budding talents in Nigeria the opportunity to join the film and television industry.

The TV series started with a string of film workshops in Lagos, and had enlisted about 100 young men and women in the state to take part in the filming as actors and crew members, with the aim of giving their aspirations in the industry the needed boost.

Speaking to Maggie’s Blog over the weekend, Emelonye said: “When my twin brother and I, turned 50, we thought of how we could give back to the society in our various fields. This is the result. I am doing mine through television. I am interested in giving the opportunity to young Nigerians to realise their dreams in the audio-visual industry. We started at Nsukka with ‘Crazy, Lovely, Cool’. At the Lagos end, we have done this TV series, ‘Heart and Soul’, which has given about 100 young Nigerians the opportunity to participate in the industry. It is usually difficult for the young ones to get that very first opportunity. That is what we intend to bridge with this project.”

Comparable to classic medical dramas like ER, Casualty, and Scrubs, Heart & Soul has been described by critics as ‘Grey’s Anatomy set in Lagos with African mystery’, and features Nollywood star, Anthony Monjaro alongside Adekola Amoo, Phoenix Ezendu and  many new but talented acts who were selected from the film workshops by the  ’50-50 Legacy’ initiative of The Obi Emelonye Foundation.

If you are a young Nigerian man or woman and have been dreaming of becoming a movie star, Maggie’s Blog has brought to you the ladder you can climb to take you there.
