TRUE NIGERIANS: HEROES OF OUR TIME, that’s the newest project of musician, Zaaki Azzay. The venture which has taken the artiste into the world of television revolves round the country, Nigeria, hence the name, TRUE NIGERIANS: HEROES OF OUR TIME.
The programme, just like the name indicates, is centered around some of the most notable characters that have existed both on the Nigerian public and private spheres. It celebrates them through unique interview sessions that reveal very interesting and hitherto unseen parts of their lives that would both entertain and educate. They would also be made to undertake tasks or put in situations not normally associated with their persons.
Some of the characters that have been on the programme so far include former president Olusegun Obasanjo who sang for the audience; Barrister Festus Kenyamo swept a large compound; Professor Pat Utomi cooked while an unknown fisherman in a rural village who had his children in the university was removed from his environment and flown to the TRANSORP HILTON, Abuja for experiences which were entirely new to him and may never have come his way anytime soon.
It is through the portrayal of scenes and character like these that Zaaki aims to provide new role models for young Nigerians and encourage them on the path of honest living to achieve their goals in life. He further states that he intends to organize seminars and workshops where these outstanding Nigerians will lecture Nigerians on the principles of success and patriotism. “I have recorded episodes that would run weekly for six months and more is still going on. I hope that Nigerians would learn some good things from the individuals showcased on the programme,” Zaaki added.
