‘Entertainment detectives’ Top Nigerian Female Voiceover Artistes of The Decade | @entdetective

“We often refuse to accept an idea merely because the tone of voice in which it has been expressed is unsympathetic to us.” –Friedrich Nietzsche
“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning” –Maya Angelou
For a proper understanding and appreciation of the importance of voice over and voice over acts, there was a need to put those quotes up.To also further shed more light on voice over, let’s make use of this definition that says“Voice-over (also known as off-camera or off-stage commentary) is a production technique where a voice—that is not part of the narrative (non-diegetic)—is used in a radio, television production, filmmaking, theatre, or other presentations.”
There are times we listen to sweepers, commercials and information from our radio and we grasp the idea without even seeing the person speaking but we feel so carried along… this can’t be done by just anybody, it take a special skill to do this and this skill is possessed by people referred to as “Voice over acts”
Now due to the widespread and popularity of the use of social media and internet, it has become difficult to catch the attention of people and it takes a properly thought and drafted script/copy that is delivered the right way by a professional to pass the message and grow on people.2019 marking the end of a decade, we can’t deny the impact of the radio as a major tool of passing messages across to the large audience in Nigeria so it is only fair to recognize and celebrate the voices behind most of the popular jingles we hear on radio, television and other platforms. For the purpose of this write up we are zooming into the female voice over acts that we can identify as trailblazers. These ladies are behind several animated, off-stage, off-screen and non-visible characters in various works, including feature films, short films, television programs, IVRs, radio imaging, commercials, radio or audio dramas, video games, audiobooks and documentaries.
