In this season, there is a wonderful surprise for viewers, as a new segment showcasing outstanding Nigerian children in the ‘Standout Kids Segment’ and also find out what really goes on in the minds of our little ones and what they want adults to know about them.
Orah Egwu, Manager, Sponsorships, speaking on why Etisalat Nigeria chose to sponsor the show said “We have identified this show as a platform that recognizes and celebrates talented children. It is also aimed at giving every Nigerian child a voice and letting them shine bright for the world to see. At Etisalat, the children, teen and youth segment is one of our major markets, hence the need to continuously find avenues to engage with this segment”.
The 2nd season of KSDT will be anchored by actor, producer, Disc Jockey and America’s favorite sidekick on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tony Okungbowa. Okungbowa starred in, and produced the film, ‘Mother of George’, ‘Restless City’ and the soon to be released, “Echo Park” which was an official selection at the Los Angeles Film fest 2014.
The television show, which has enjoyed popularity and rave reviews in various markets like Australia, Singapore, India and Italy, was launched in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2015, with the original format adapted to the Nigerian market. The theme of the show is “Let Your Little Star Shine Bright”.
