The winner of Hymnodia reality TV contest, an initiative aimed at nurturing talent in rendition of hymns, will be rewarded with the ASAPH, a specially designed trophy, a brand new car and cash prize of N5 million.
This was disclosed by Kufre Ekanem, Managing Director of Philosoville Limited, initiators of Hymnodia, at the recent flag-off of Hymnodia Season One at the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos by its 30-member choir.
Ekanem explained that Hymnodia seeks to revive the hymn culture and worship as a critical element of what cohesive societies require. He said Hymnodia revolves around members of a world class choir who contest to showcase their skills as singers, writers and hymnodists, while collaborating to render soul-lifting renditions.
“It is designed to redefine the perception on hymns and reposition the minds of Nigerians on the almost forgotten art and value of hymn creation, writing and singing,” Ekanem affirmed.
To participate, talented young Nigerians are required to visit Hymnodia website, and return scanned copy of completed form. Applicants are also expected to post a maximum 60 seconds self video of hymn rendition on Facebook, Twitter Instagram or their website with the hashtag #hymnodiahq, after which shortlisted applicants would be invited to an audition.
Entries will be received from December 31, 2018 to January 21, 2019 and audiences will be regaled thereafter in the flow of creativity of choir performances during the 13 weeks of fun which the initiative would run through, while the winner will be announced at the grand finale of the contest on April 21, 2019.
According to Ekanem, Hymnodia will be an annual event and will lavishly reward the creativeness and talents that excel in its defined categories.
