With the current rise in the number of talent hunt shows and the corresponding rise in the Interest of Nigerian youths in becoming stars, there has also been a rising trend in youths who drop out of school with the aim of pursuing a career in the entertainment industry and this we believe is a misnomer as education should not be compromised.
BAF Voice is not just another talent hunt. We aim to bring encourage continued education by keeping these discovered talent in school. Or return them back to school.
BAF Voice is a talent hunt and education mentoring of kids under the age 12 and Teens from age 13 up to 19 years. We believe that all talented young people should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential, whatever their background. Article 27 – 31 of the United Nations Convention of the right of the child, states that children should be given the opportunity to express themselves and develop their creative mind.
That was why we carefully channel our resources to give talented children from lower income families or children from the affluence needing guidance, in discovering their talent and getting them education, whether formal or vocational, which will enable them flourish and grow in the creative industry.
Our ambition matches that of the young people we’re here to help: we fundraise continuously and do all we can to give holistic, tailor-made support to young persons in need, not only through funding but also through individual support for their musical career progression as well as all other creative school talents. In each city we plan to reach at least 7,200 young talent and Teens from schools annually through our Teen Star Nigeria TV & Radio Show appeal fund.
We also recognize music teachers and school administrators to spot, support and nurture musical / creative talent in children.
