Organisers of Big Family Dream Game show have begun auditioning for the second edition of the reality TV show.

The call came as Bafot Studios, AG Mortgage Bank Plc. and Rite Foods Ltd. announced the commencement of registration for the show in Lagos.

It was gathered that the TV show, which specifically opened for registration on December 14, 2022, is a financial literacy family game show, where 16 families selected through an open audition compete to win a dream prize of a three-bedroom apartment and others.

The Hange family (Abraham and Osinachi) achieved its dream when a three-bedroom apartment was one in Season One.

The show, which started in 2021 with the aim of providing accommodation for families, is also partnering Lifemates Furniture, which will provide furniture for winners of the buildings. The audition for the South West was held on December 26, 2022, South East’s audition will hold on January 7, 2023, while the one for the northern part of the country comes up on January 14, 2023.

The host, Oludare Onsanya, said all registered families would get invited to the audition venue.

“The South West venue is in Lagos, families in the South East Region will have their audition in Enugu and that of the North hold in Abuja. After the audition, we will select 16 families that will compete for the prize of a three-bedroom apartment, one for each region.

“Rite Foods has also promised consolation prizes and we hope that other brands will come on board to improve the quality of the prizes.

“The premise of the show is that every family has a dream and it can come true, if the family’s finances are well managed. So, the family that works its finances very well will win its dream prize.”

On requirements to qualify for the show, he said: “A competing family must have a child not younger than six years of age, so, they too can participate and contribute to the family, and the oldest should be 15 years. All we are looking for is family bonding, and the family’s ability to relate together, not an authoritarian family.” New landlords will be announced in June 2023.”

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of AG Mortgage, Ngozi Onyemuwa Anyogu, said: “AG Mortgage Bank’s philosophy, CSR, and services are built around the family and we cannot talk about the family without homes. Everything we do is built around the family, to provide residential accommodation for the family so that at the end of the day, the family, which is the nucleus of society, can be an avenue for lifting the much-needed societal value that appears to be lacking in our country. We felt that one good thing we could do is to get families their dream home.

“We have set a target of one million mortgages by 2030 so that Nigerians can have livable and affordable homes to improve their lives. We have over the years partnered with developers, trade associations, schools and other entities with the sole aim of housing Nigerian families. This show is a viable platform to showcase how we can help families achieve their dream homes, and free up capital for business while they pay for their homes in installments.”

Speaking on their support for the show, Lifemate Nigeria’s Media Manager, Orebayo Ejiemhen, said: “This is part of our corporate social responsibilities to give back to the society and for our love and care for the Nigeria families. It gives us great joy to partner with the organisers of the show.
“The interesting part of the show that we witnessed in season one is the way families expressed their love and unity among themselves during the audition and the production. We encourage families to go and register and be part of season 2. The organisers of the show assure us that it is packaged with a lot of fun activities, and it will be a memorable show for participating families.”

Chief Growth Officer at Brandslay Global, Mariam Kuku, said: “The exciting thing about this show is that family brands have many leverage touch points to create an experience for families beyond just advertising their products. They can literally connect emotionally with families from the auditions through to production. Even when the show airs, brands can connect with the audience to let them know they care about their dreams. We believe this is the faith that AG Mortgage Bank and Rite Foods team have invested in.”
