Popular TV host stole podcast idea I shared with him – Teddy A cries out
Big Brother Naija ex-contestant, Teddy A has revealed that an idea he had for a sports programme on YouTube and Instagram was stolen by a popular TV host.
The reality TV star said he consulted the person late last year about getting a sponsor for the show which will be in podcast form and he agreed.
Teddy, however said the show host began to give him excuses so he thought the sponsors did not buy the idea, only for him to come across the same person running the sports podcast.
Though the artiste did not mention the name of his person in question, he came to a moment of realisation that it was how ‘the game was played’ in the industry.
Teddy A wrote: “Na so the game dey abi?”
“Late last year I reached out to a popular tv host about collaborating with me to start a football podcast on IG and YouTube. I asked if he could bring the big brand he represents on board (a beer brand) and he said sure why not, great idea fam.
Suddenly baba begin give me excuses and I just knew the idea probably didn’t fly with the supposed brand or they had other ideas.
“Fast forward to few weeks ago and I’m seeing this same guy host a football podcast show on YouTube sponsored by that same beer brand lol.”
In related news, music star, David Adeleke, aka Davido recently launched a model football talent hunt programme in partnership with the Abu Salami Media and 1XBet.
The talent hunt tagged ‘Davido Dream Football Show’ comes with a designed curriculum that has the potential to develop fundamental technical skills and tactical awareness in young players who are committed to competing at the highest levels.
Chief Executive Officer of Abu Salami Media and Chairman of DDFS, Abu Salami, during a media presentation in Lagos, on Tuesday, said the programme is aimed at empowering and supporting young male football talents between ages 18 and 22 within Nigeria and around Africa.
Salami said; “The Davido Dream Football Show will enable young football talents to realise their dreams of becoming stars in future.”
According to the CEO, the reality TV show would run for 30 weeks with one episode to be shown every week.
“First, we will organise screening of those who will register. Once they are screened, we will organise a series of trials. From that exercise, the best among them will be selected for camping for the final show,” he added.
On his part, Davido said; “We all know impact is essential and a show like this will not only engage the minds of the youths, it will birth meaningful changes and opportunities for youths across Nigeria and Africa as a whole. I believe it’ll also set the pace for impact-driven initiative in grassroots football in Africa.”
