Hangman – a unique fast-paced online reality show which aims to uncover South Africa’s greatest innovator – has been announced by Cell C. The stakes are high in this revolutionary new programme with R1 million in prize money.
“Cell C’s strategic focus is around bringing relevance to the South African market through service offerings,” says Jose Dos Santos, Cell C Chief Executive Officer. “A key focus is providing value added services and segmented content that is being consumed daily online. Customers are hungry for new, unique, fresh and entertaining content.”
With this in mind, Cell C embarked on producing the 10-part Hangman series which represents a new genre in unscripted entertainment and follows on the success of Cell C’s first online Break the Net reality talent show which streamed on the service provider’s Cell C Reality App last year.
Hangman is a show unlike anything on any screen anywhere! A global first in interactive, immersive entertainment, it puts viewers in the driver’s seat. By “investing” in a virtual Stock Exchange, they can help determine the outcome of the show, while standing in line to win great viewer prizes including a car.
Hangman consists of two different content streams. The first is the actual reality online series which would traditionally be consumed on prime-time TV but is now being streamed live online.
Contestants will have to prove their mettle through a series of gruelling challenges but their fate is determined by more than performance alone. They will have to win the approval of ‘Backers’, captains of industry and investment with keen business acumen and ruthless standards. These include businesswoman Phuti Mahanyele, celebrity economist Iraj Abedian, self-made billionaire Quinton van der Burgh and Bonang Mohale, chairman of Shell South Africa Energy Limited.
“It’s breakneck entertainment that sees contestants put their bodies on the line in the pressure cooker of innovation and turns viewers into real-time investors,” says Bl!nk Pictures director Odette Schwegler who was commissioned by Cell C to produce Hangman, a Cell C original.
“We are not seeking out a great businessman looking for an investment for a daily run-of-the-mill business or the sharp up-and-coming exec looking for a six-figure salary. It’s all about the innovators,” she adds.
Hangman is open to anyone residing or working in South Africa who wants to participate in the competition or just view the series. Simply download the Cell C Reality App on Android or iOS to access the shows and to register for the competition.
Access within the App will be zero rated for Cell C customers. Any breakout from the App will be charged as per current data depletion.
The Cell C Reality App is designed with a built-in points programme where points are awarded when customers download and interact within the App. Points are awarded for every week customers are active in the App, every time a video is viewed, when they create a profile, and more.
The second stream comes in the form of a Stock Exchange called ‘The Exchange’. Viewers can truly immerse themselves in the show, meet the Backers, be inspired by successful innovators and get expert business insights. The hub is constantly updated with “hot off the press” content straight from the Hangman set! To take part in the outcome of the show, win great prizes and rewards, viewers can become virtual investors by trading on The Exchange. They will also help drive the outcome of the competition.
All customers that download the Cell C Reality App automatically receive 100 000 points which they can use to participate in the ‘The Exchange’. Points are allocated to play the game. Customers win a variety of prizes by playing the game. Prizes include a car, smartphones, data, cash and vouchers.
The innovator who succeeds in garnering the support of the Backers, while rallying viewer/‘investor’ sentiment, could walk away with a R1 million cash prize and everything needed to succeed in a 21st century market.
True grit, determination and prowess will determine the winner of the ultimate prize. Failure means facing the ‘noose’ of the Hangman!
Says Dos Santos: “Cell C is delighted to present this fully interactive and unscripted format with Hangman. It offers the opportunity for viewers to track innovator performance and invest ‘real time’ via a Cell C Stock Exchange App. They can also get involved ‒ up close and personal ‒ by helping contestants win their tasks. We are delighted that as an innovator, Cell C is continuing with the delivery of incredible content.”
Entry is open from June 21 to July 21 with the show streaming online from October 9 to December 11. Contestants and viewers do not need to be a Cell C customer to play or download the App but Cell C customers will receive bonuses for participation and viewing the show.
Success Resources, the leading seminar organiser in the world, is pleased to announce that Robert Kiyosaki will be speaking at the National Achievers Congress on 8th and 9th July 2017, at the Heartfelt Arena, Pretoria.
The theme this year is much closer to the hearts of South Africans, being “Top Financial Wizards Foresee An Upcoming Global Financial Crisis”. In April earlier this year, South Africa’s credit rating was cut to “junk” status, and where global economic signs point to an impending worldwide financial crisis, Robert Kiyosaki and a panel of experts aim to help ordinary men and women create the wealth they desire, and then to help them protect their newly created wealth.
Key speakers at the event include Robert Kiyosaki – bestselling author and financial educator responsible for the number one personal finance book in the world, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”; Sandy Jadeja – Chief Market Strategist and Trading Educator; as well as Tom Wheelwright – Tax Expert and Robert’s Rich Dad Advisor.
Robert said: “Many people right now are doing things that are not making them any richer, but poorer instead. They are invested in money-losing habits such as saving, getting a job, going to university, and being afraid of debt. What I hope to achieve this July with the National Achievers Congress is to reach out and help educate even more people financially”.
Robert Kiyosaki is no stranger to South Africa and its people. Last year, he was in Pretoria sharing the secrets of wealth creation and management, in order to help sandwiched middle-class South Africans become much more financially adequate and to thrive in such an unstable economic climate.
This year, Robert Kiyosaki will not only be opening for the event, but will be speaking for most of the 2 days, sharing his immense experience and teaching financial lessons learnt from over the past 20 years.
