Of course, talents could be naturally gifted but it takes a lot of effort to be discovered. But, things work faster if there are avenues like Reality Shows, where one could showcase his or her talent.

A reality show is a type of television program that aims to show how ordinary people behave in everyday life, or in situations, often created by the program makers, which are intended to represent everyday life.

Many Nigerian female music artists may have been talented in their natural ways, but it took different reality shows for Nigerians to discover them. On the shows, they demonstrated their prowess and won the hearts of millions. Today, they are being celebrated and praised.

However, critics have argued that most of the reality television shows in the country do not accurately reflect reality, in ways both implicit and deceptive. And a common question that is often asked is, is reality TV good for society?

Although the shows entertain viewers, they adversely affect society at the same time. They adversely affect children by derailing the process of their talent growth and contributes to immorality. But, in comparison, the beneficial effects overweight the disadvantages.
