A new reality show, ‘The Deal,” is set to hit the Ghanaian airwaves, come January 28, 2018.
The show, which is the first of its kind in the country, aims at grooming students from the various tertiary institutions across the country on business models, entrepreneurship among others.
According to organisers of the show, the selected 10 finalists would have the opportunity to explore their talents during their stay in the Deal House called Penthouse.
Speaking at the launch last Tuesday in Accra, Vice President, Business Development and Finance of Groupe Nduom (GN), a multinational conglomerate, Dr Nana Kweku Nduom, applauded the team for bringing out this innovative idea to support young entrepreneurs.
According to him, such initiatives would bring out the best talents and entrepreneurial ideas of students which hitherto would have been buried for life.
Dr Kweku Nduom revealed that the country needed business and entrepreneurial minded youth to move its economic fortunes forward.
He, therefore, called on the contestants to take their task in the house seriously to make the competition keen.
“This show is not about who wins the ultimate but rather how a better person you become after the end of the show. You are all winners already,” Dr Kweku Nduom told the finalists.
Dr Kweku Nduom, who doubles as the Management Team Chairman of the ‘DEAL’ reality show, added that “this whole idea would not have been successful if my team had not worked tirelessly.
Earlier, the Executive Director of the ‘Deal,’ Nene E. Amoako- Attah, explained that the reality show “holds a promise for increasing as well as creating additional 100s of more powerful business ideas and set-ups that will make significant contributions to revolutionising the business growth agenda of this nation.”
Head of Production- Content Vault, Ms Nathalie Anang, stated that two (2) teams will be created from the 10 contesting finalists to participate in challenges every week at selected companies within Groupe Nduom.
She announced that the winner of Session One will go home with GH¢25,000 as a start-up capital, a brand new saloon car, two laptops as well as a one-year mentoring programme.
The DEAL is competitive, challenging and intellectually engaging; it has as its long-term goal to become the leading platform for raising and shaping the next generation of business giants of Ghana and Africa; like the Nduoms, Dangotes, Yamsons and the rest.
The show will be aired live on Campus TV, a channel on First Digital decoder. The DEAL is an Nduom initiative.

Chancellor of Central University, Rev Dr Mensa Otabil, has announced the celebration of the 20th anniversary celebration of the university in 2018.
He indicated that the celebration would be moments for absolute reflections to look into the future prospects of the university.
Speaking at the 16th graduation ceremony of the university held over the weekend at the Miotso Campus, Dr Otabil said the university had come a long way in raising transformational leaders for Ghana, Africa and the world.
He was grateful to God for the lives of the graduating students, faculty and the administrative cadre.
The chancellor also congratulated the graduates for the successful completion of their studies and counselled them to “look into the future in anticipation of more challenges knowing that God is the ultimate help.”
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bill Puplampu, in his address, expressed sentiments on the undue delay in payments of fees charged by the university. He explained that the fees needed to be paid on time to avoid inordinate pressure on the operations as well as avoid crippling the progress of the university.
He noted that as a private university, all efforts to deliver quality education is a priority that required financial support and wondered why some students and their guardians do not settle their fees on time.
“Many students, parents and guardians treat the matter of fees as if it was a favor being dispensed to the institution. It takes typically the 13 weeks to collect 70% of our fees each semester and often the last trove of fees come in under the duress of exams” he lamented.
Professor Puplampu further indicated that private university education in Ghana was not expensive compared to the fee paying options in the State Universities and therefore called on parents to honor all financial commitments to “help us deliver the quality of tuition that future generations will be proud of”.
The vice-chancellor also announced that the certificates of 10 students who were expected to have been graduated have been withheld by the Academic Board for their involvement in various kinds of exam malpractice or other. He therefore advised the graduates to avoid short cuts in life placing emphasis on wealth, prominence and presumed stature as they will in time injure their spirits and requested of them to be true ambassadors of the University in faith, integrity and excellence.
Projecting into the coming year, Prof Puplampu stated that there were plans to roll out a range of Applied Diploma programmes as well as a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. He added that construction works for the proposed Teshie campus will also begin among other infrastructural projects.

Prince Harry, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II who is fifth in line to the throne, is engaged to Meghan Markle, his American girlfriend, the royal family said on Monday.
The prince, 33, got engaged this month to Ms. Markle, 36, a statement from Clarence House said, adding that the wedding would be next spring.
He has also come to be the face of a new generation of royals — modern, down-to-earth and more in touch with the public. This year, he even suggested that no one in the royal family actually wants to sit on the throne.
“We are involved in modernizing the British monarchy. We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people,” he said in an interview with Newsweek.
“Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time.”
In another unusual break from palace protocol but one that drew praise, he divulged to a newspaper that he had suffered for years after the death of his mother in 1997, before finally getting help about three years ago at the urging of his elder brother, Prince William.
The candid statement by the Prince Harry, in a podcast released by
Was the latest indication of a shift within the British monarchy toward greater openness, led by a younger generation. The two princes, along with Prince William’s wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, are leading a campaign called Heads Together to end stigma around mental illness.
Prince Harry said that not dealing with the trauma had contributed to years of “total chaos” in his late 20s.
“I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well,” he said.
He added: “I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle.”
It was his public statement in defence of Ms. Markle that effectively confirmed their relationship, while also taking on the British newspapers that have long hungered for news of the royals and their foibles.
In the unusually blunt rebuke, Prince Harry, through his spokesman, called out “the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.”
Going techy is the new cool these days and MyGhPay, an integrated and secure online payments and collections platform, introduced by GT Bank, couldn’t help but bring its cool features to the home of cool, the University of Ghana, Legon.
With a concert dubbed ‘Now Hear Cool’, coming off at the Elizabeth Sey Hall this weekend, November 4, the godMC himself, M.anifest, who is also another cool fella, is expected to entertain his base to some of his biggest tunes including ‘No Shortcut to Heaven’, ‘Someway Bi’, ‘Nowhere Cool’, and ‘Time No Dey’.
Supporting him on stage is a heavyweight of talent including Kofi Kinaata, Ebony, KiDi, Kwesi Authur, Worlasi, Darko Vibes, Big Ben and Kayso with Live FM’s Masta Jay on the turntables to keep the ravers grooving till the end of the concert.
As part of the hall’s weekly celebration, the concert will serve as the climax of activities and is under the theme ‘Promoting real talents 3verywhere’ and students and alumni of Elizabeth Sey Hall are definitely in for a treat.
With massive support from GT Bank, Aftown, TTD Media and Singitdamnit Music, the concert is expected to be the biggest in recent history, looking at the level of talent and their appeal to the university’s demographics and myghpay is seeking to use the opportunity to embed its platform in the minds of students.

He released his breakout album, Immigrant Chronicles: Coming to America (2011), his third, after Manifestations (2007) and The Birds and The Beats (2009).
He has since topped up with other releases including Apae: the price of free EP (2013) and Nowhere Cool (2016). He has since been one of the most respected lyricists on the continent, winning multiple awards — most notably Best Rapper of the Year at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards, an award he also won in 2013.
With a string of hits and a couple of awards to back her rising stardom, Ebony, known privately as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng is the latest addition to a growing club of Ghanaian dancehall/Afrobeats artists.
