Green Grass Trading and Contracting Company and Yak and Yeti are all set to organise the grand finale of Voice of Nepal, Nepali edition of international singing reality show, The Voice, at Asian Town Grand Mall, Sanaiya, today.
Prabin Gurung, Managing Director of Green Grass, said that the Voice of Nepal in Doha will be a proud event for Nepali community in Qatar. Originally created by John de Mol, Dutch Producer, the Nepali edition of The Voice is directed by Laxman Poudel and hosted by Sushil Nepal and Osin Sitaula. The gurus of the programme include Deep Shrestha, Abhaya Subba, Pramod Kharel and Sanup Poudel.
Tickets can be purchased from Nepali restaurants in Doha and Grand Mall, along with the home delivery service, the organisers are providing. The finale will be shot with drones and collectively 17 cameras and will be live broadcasted by Kathmandu based Kantipur Television. The winner will win a cash prize of 2.5 million Nepali Rupees along with a car, video album contract and a world tour contract.
Talking to Community Prabin Gurung said, “The preparations are in full swing. We have already brought the necessary equipment and gears from Kathmandu and are in the process of stage production. Most of the crew members have arrived here from Kathmandu. I hope the event turns out to be a huge success.”
Speaking about introducing the new talent via the platform of the show, he said, “Unlike any other event or programme we are bringing and introducing the hidden talent of Nepal. The intention of this franchise show is only to hunt down the hidden talent. Nepal Idol and The Voice are doing so good. These shows are like a launching pad for all these talented people. It is proud moment for us as we are bringing an event from one country and are producing it in another country.”
“Qatar is one of the most peaceful countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Nepali has the second largest community in Qatar with around 450,000 expatriates residing here and supporting Qatar for 2022 FIFA World Cup and other infrastructure developments. So, why not bring a homegrown show and re-produce it in Doha for all the expatriates residing here,” added Prabin
On talking about his prospect projects and bringing other Nepali productions in Doha, he said, “Personally, I don’t have such plans as yet, too soon. But, I definitely believe that events and programmes of such sort promote tourism in Qatar. So, I’m looking forward to organising more events and doing better with every single production.”
The show will feature various artistes from Nepal. “Rajan Gurung, a Nepali folk singer, along with top 12 contestants of Voice of Nepal will be performing at the event. Sita Ram Kattel and Kunjana Ghimire, Nepali comedian couple, will also be performing at the show,” says Prabin.
“A lot of notable personalities from Qatar and Nepali community, including entrepreneurs, media people and executives are expected to attend the event. And, we’re looking forward to some fantastic production synchronised to detail. I would take the opportunity to thank both Qatar and Nepal Governments for all their support and making it possible for us to bring the show in Doha.” concluded Prabin.
