Black Entertainment Television (BET) is set to end this season’s finale of
the BET Spotlight series with the talented R&B singers Praiz and Chidinma.

The show which will air on Friday, June 22, 2012 will focus on the budding
and buzzing careers of the soul singer, X3M Music signee Praiz who
recently released his two singles and follow up videos and is already
considered as one of the most inspiring voices in Nigeria. Chidinma has
also done pretty well for herself, stepping out of her Project Fame
shadows and releasing appealing singles.

This BET Spotlight series which debuted on March 23, 2012 has featured a
total of 26 Nigerian artistes including Ice Prince and M.I, Wizkid and
P-Square, Retta and Tiwa Savage, Sauce Kid and Modenine, IllBliss and
Naeto C, Muna and Eva, music producers Tha Suspect and Cobhams Asuquo,
video directors, Jude Okoye and Clarence Peters and others.

‘I created the series because I wanted to showcase the amazing talent out
of Nigeria while I was in Lagos shooting the cyphers for the BET Hip-Hop
Awards last year. It made sense to meet and chat with some of the artists
I thought were doing great things in the industry. It was never planned to
be a show, just drops initially. When I got back and reviewed the footage,
I strongly felt I had enough content to create an up close and personal
series’,Lilian Blankson, the producer of the series says.

‘It has been an amazing journey and I think it is befitting to feature
Praiz and Chidinma, the future of Nigeria’s music industry, as our Season
Finale episode in a show I have dubbed Rated Next – they are the ‘Next
Great Thing’ to watch out for and I am sure everyone will experience this
after they watch the show’, she adds.
