The project manager of the show, Mr Chuks Anyaduba, said that the goal is to curb political upheavals and misunderstandings created by cultural diversity.

This will be achieved by showcasing and harmonizing the value systems of different ethnic groups in Africa on the Show.

Organisers are also working on ensuring viewers can vote for their favourite contestants by purchasing credits via digital solutions.

Viewers will be able to watch the Show on The Residence Afrika app which will be available on Google Playstore and the App Store.

They can also have direct conversations with the contestants and choose their Star contestant of the week, every week of the Show.

Auditions will be open to Africans irrespective of status, gender and background. All contestants will apply online through a transparent audition process.
