Creativity on the side of children has often been seen as God’s gift that can only manifest in adulthood.
Creative children are often forced to suppress that part of them because most african parents favour education over every other aspect of the child’s development.
Parents keep forgetting that at the end of the day, most of these kids struggle and still run back to those skills and talents for survival.
Only few celebrities of today got into their various genres below the age of 18 and Chinedu Hardy Nwadike, the founder of Kidstantic said that this anomaly also means the industry is flooded with people without the calling or clear talent to be there.
“With the economic situation in the country, people are willing to do anything that can put food on their table: acting, dancing singing inclusive and today a lot of people are doings things because it pays and looks easy”
“Most people who do these things today rejected them as kids or maybe their parents did, favouring the same certificate they have set aside for what used to be forbidden skills”, he said.
What is Kidstantic and What will it do?
Chinedu Hardy Nwadike further stated that to ensure that talented kids get the opportunity they deserve to develop their talents, they have put together strategies that will ensure a win-win situation for both parents and their children.
“Imagine having a talented kid genuinely starting early to showcase. Also imagine children being inspired by others like them who are also living in the situation, that is what Kidstantic is all about”
“We have a platform that lets children furge an early screen career. It also inspires others to start loving where they come from, knowing that the best of the best can come from there”
“We have different kinds of stories. They are issue based and the goal is to go beyond entertainment, create a new industry and change a lot of societal ills”, Chinedu Hardy Nwadike who is an award winning blogger and arthur said.
Kidstantic’s strategy according to Chinedu will ensure the right kids are voluntarily signing up for the project with the consent of their parents.
