As early as 7am on Thurday, April 13, 2017, contestants in Abuja arrived in their numbers at Sandralia Hotel, Jabi for a chance to impress God’s Children Great Talent (GCGT) scouts and ultimately compete for the star prize comprising a N250m management deal, brand new car and N10m cash.

With some coming in from neighboring cities, the contestants displayed an array of talents, from dance to music, as well as spoken word and comedy.

Some of the Abuja audition contestants include King David Dance Group from Kaduna, 19-year-old singer and pianist Winner Kelvins, Prime Access Dance Group from Lafia in Nasarawa, six-year-old singer and instrumentalist, Agboli Joshua amongst hundreds of others.

A highlight of the Abuja auditions was when 20-year-old Isaac Garba from Kaduna literally raised the roof with a mind-blowing performance using his drum set.

This won him a slot in the Abuja quarter-finals scheduled to hold on Saturday, April 15, 2017.

The regional judges were not only impressed by the amount of talented hopefuls that turned up for the audition, they were in awe at the number of amazing talents that abound in the north central region of Nigeria.

One of the scouts, Nollywood actor, Francis Duru said, ‘I’m glad to have been experienced the Abuja auditions today. I will never have imagined how much talent exists in this part of the country.

‘The GCGT platform should be applauded for coming up with this initiative to identify and celebrate young gospel talents.’
