Nigerian Television deserves more than what Chika Ike is offering with her African Diva Reality Show.
Not all of Nigerian television is bad but we have to admit that a lot of programmes on terrestrial TV stations shouldn't have made it from an editing suite.
African Diva Reality Show features 22 ladies between the ages of 18 and 35 in a house for weeks and is the brainchild of actress Chika Ike.
The winner will get $10,000, a brand new car, an acting contract, a cover feature in an international magazine and one year supply of Fancy Nancy accessories.
The synopsis of the show sounds pretty cute that's until you seat on your sofa and watch the reality show that pops up only on AIT.
African Diva Reality Show really shouldn't have found its way to television but unfortunately, it did. The show is poorly conceived and riddled with boring contestants. It is held back by poor execution.
That, however, is not the major sin of the reality TV show. Chika Ike makes for a poor host. Her facial expressions and mannerisms don't reflect the talents of a woman who is touted as a popular actress.
Chika Ike might have good ideas for the show but her presence holds the show back. The production can be a whole lot better, way better.
Having a reality show isn't what Chika Ike should be focused on right now. She has a popular name in Nollywood but on the streets, she has not been able to nail a mainstream hit. She needs her own blockbuster movie to define her popular career. Going to TV isn't the best direction.
Chika Ike needs to focus on churning four or five really good movies and leave reality shows to the experts.
