Naija Farmer Reality TV show is envisioned to be Africa’s No.1 Reality TV show providing first class family entertainment mixed with education, training, mentorship and advocacy aimed at producing expert celebrity farmers.
The participants who will be unemployed Nigerian youths with SSCE and above, aged between 18 and 35 years will be joined by the biggest stars in Nollywood to create the most-followed contents on TV, radio and social media. Thus, turning those unemployed youths to celebrity farmers and role models to their peers. Participants will win several prize monies in excess of N60million; while all participants will be assisted to access concessionary facilities to become farm-owners/Agropreneurs.
A total of 190 participants comprising 80 Housemates, 10 Non-Resident Existing Farm-owners, and 100 Non-Resident Trainees will participate in the maiden edition; selected from a nationwide audition from the 36 states & FCT. Each category of participants will have their own prizes to win.
It is projected that in 10 years, more than 1 million Agripreneurs will be created by this project, while over one trillion Naira worth of economic activities will be generated.
Recall that in April 2017, the Federal Govt. of Nigeria in response to recession, launched the Economic Recovery & Growth Plan (ERGP) – a developmental initiative focused on restoring growth, investing in people, and building a globally competitive economy.
Now, the Entertainment Industry which is the highest incremental job-creator in our recent history, is launching Naija farmer Reality TV Show to support FG’s Economic Recovery & Growth Plan (ERGP); to help in national re-orientation; & help curb insecurity and farmers/herdsmen clashes.
The Promoters of Naija Farmer Reality TV Show are the Entertainment Industry represented by the Radio, Television, Theatre & Arts Workers Union (RATTAWU), NTA-StarTimes, in collaboration with Industry leaders in Agriculture, Federal Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development, Bank of Agriculture (BOA), International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), Other Public Sector MDA’s, Banking, Chartered Accountants, Management Consultants and FMCG Logistics Marketing Experts.
This is the single most far-reaching economic activity in Africa and the black world. Blending it with the most popular stars in Nollywood with more than 100 million combined followers in social media; and creating the best entertainment content from it will create a monumental mass movement, the type of which have not been witnessed anywhere in the world because of its impact on society.

Screening & Selection
You will have to pass through the screening process for you to be selected. Lets know if you know farming.
Join the Housemates
If your auditioning is successful, you will be selected as part of the housemates in thecontext for the Grand Prize.
This is not a ‘winner-takes-all’ show. And is also not one in which a million applies, and twenty is selected.
On this show, instead of the usual 20 we shall have 190 participants, of which there will be 80 Housemates, 110 non-resident participants who will all be receiving N30,000 monthly salary during the show.
At the end, 1st to 5th wins prizes totalling N60million.
All 190 of them are set up with seed capitals (concessionary facilities) to become Agribusiness owners – all saying bye bye to poverty.
Each of the 190 will have 25 applicants attached to his new business as employees – working for you while NAIJA FARMER pays their monthly salary of N30,000 each.
This means that a new set of 4,750 will be selected from the pool of those not selected earlier, bringing total participants to 4,940.
The new applicants will also be funded with seed capital to own their business after learning the trade.
This cycle of adding 25 new apprentice is repeated taking participants to 123,500.
This process continues until millions of youths benefit.
So, you can see that there may be delay for some people, but not denial of benefits.
This is planned to be the greatest economic intervention in the history of Nigeria and indeed, the black race.
Millions of jobs will be created and trillions of Naira in economic activities generated at the bottom of economic pyramid.
The Reality entertainment part will see participants sharing house with Presidents and Vice Presidents, Governors, Ministers, Billionaires like Dangote, etc, CBN Gov; Bank MD’s, and the biggest stars like Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Genevieve, Oge Okoye, Ali Nuhu, Ay etc.
And all of these on a 24 hour TV channel live in 30 African countries, with highlight shows on several other channels.
