Former NTV Life Stories show host Justine Namere might not be returning on our screens anytime soon! Nameere’s chances to return on our screens faced a serious blow after NTV management refused to take up new TV show that Nameere was chosen to host by Buddies Production. Not even the involvement of some big shots from Airtel, the sponsors could get the NTV management to change their stand.
The new show, which is almost like NTV Life Stories, will include Airtel taking action towards solving the plight of several people that will be interviewed. Sources within Airtel told us that the telecom will build houses, startup farms, and so on for the people that will be interviewed on the show, depending on their needs.
Nameere and the Buddies team have been traversing different corners of this banana republic and getting touching stories from different people that they hoped to start airing sometime early next month.
However, on receiving the initial episodes of the show, Buddies and Airtel were thrown into shock after NTV management insisted they would not run a show that is being presented by Nameere.
A meeting was convened and NTV management made it clear that they were not comfortable having Nameere that dumped a similar programme on the same station a few years back, on their programme line-up.
Buddies and Airtel were left with no option, but to get back on the drawing board and find a replacement for her!
