Talent scouting programme Signed International promises a much better season this time around. This year one of Botswana’s most talented exports Connie Ferguson, who is famous for playing Karabo Moroka role in the popular South African soapie Generations, will be involved to work with the top five contestants in the competition. Signed International’s Maitumelo Molema said one thing different about the programme this time around is that the production quality is better compared to last season. The winner this year walks away with a P100 000. Molema said the show has generated a lot of interest from the youth. She said they are specifically looking at actors that can work in different acting roles and cope with the vigorous choreography activities which are in coherence with their acting roles. “We offer individuals that have the passion, determination as well as the talent, an opportunity to practice and nurture their skills by developing an acting school that will provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to penetrate in the industry,” she said. According to Molema, last season’s winner is doing incredibly well, having appeared in the popular South African soapie scandal. This season’s winner will sign an acting contract with Talent Etcentra based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The show is sponsored by the Ministry of Youth Sport and Culture, CIPA, Levy on Technical Devices Fund and Yarona FM. It started airing on Botswana Television this weekend.
