Donna Erickson, A Flair For Writing
Shadow Play Entertainment is pleased to announce that The Write Stuff literary reality show is going international. Creator and Executive Producer Cyrus A. Webb has teamed up with Ojelabi Emmanuel Olanreqaju of Nigeria to create The Write Stuff Africa.

The Write Stuff takes you into the journey of aspiring writers who compete for the ultimate prize: a one-book deal and everything they need in order to make their literary dreams come true . More details will be released in the upcoming weeks, however, auditions for this new spin-off will take place for its first season in late 2009. The show will be the first of its kind in Africa, and though Shadow Play Entertainment will have an active role in its production, Ojelabi E. Olanreqaju will be Co-Creator of the project and act as Co-Executive Producer, assembling his own team for the show.

"We are excited to have this partnership underway as we prepare for the historic debut of the show in the United States," says Webb,33. "The Write Stuff will not only bring a positive and educational program to television but take reality tv to another level. This will benefit not only the cast but those watching at home as well." Joining Webb in the role of Producers for The Write Stuff Africa are Stanley Clark of For The People Productions and Herschel Dixon, both who serve as Production Consultants for the American version of The Write Stuff.

Olanreqaju,23, shares the sentiment of Webb. "I have spent the last three years of my life pursuing a career and I know where it has gotten me," he says. "It has given me experience, resilience and attitude. All this time, my calling has never ceased pursuing me. In the face of this hard reality, it is the season to come to terms with my ability and knowing fully well that my actions will give a lot of people identity and life. What better way is there to do this than through The Write Stuff?

"In years to come, it will be a focal point of discussion for writers. Did I say years to come? Pardon me. History has already begun. Writers, if you got the stuff, let's do this stuff in a big way. Join the movement."

Ojelabi Emmanuel Olanreqaju started his career as a clerk in Obasanjo Holdings limited, a conglomerate entity renowned in African as a forerunner in the production of agricultural items. The Group which is owned by the former President of the Federal republic of Nigeria, former chairman of the African Union and a renowned leader in the world economy (Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR) also has investment in various sectors of the African economy. His exposure to top quality management and professionalism acquired by training boosted his career as within two years he was appointed the Accountant (Finance Manager) of the holding company (Group Head Office).

AG Press, the publishing company providing the grand prize for the American leg of the show, has already signed on to offer the same package to the winner of The Write Stuff Africa. Webb has also confirmed that Conversations Magazine, Hype Magazine, Crunk Magazine and Hunidracks Energy Drink of California is also onboard as a sponsor for the new project.
