Beneath every cover, which is the human body, is a human heart which craves for love and attention. We must get beneath the cover that houses every human spirit and see its works; for there’s a vast potential waiting to be developed.
To envisage this, I’ve always believed that we are all born with a clean slate and that, it is what we write on that slate that’s what we execute! No one is useless! Admit that! Given the right “environment” and the tender loving care, every viable seed will germinate, grow and bear tasty fruits.
And this is what The Mic Africa seeks to do and achieve. Thus, to give you the platform to showcase your God-given talent and skills in order to become Africa’s Next Star.
Simply put, two-time Emmy Finalist Take Back the Mic® (TBTM) is coming to the continent as;
