This was announced at a media parley held at the Rave TV office in Lagos last week. Activities to mark the anniversary, according to Agatha include a seven-week TV reality show called ‘The Search’, a press conference, and an anniversary dinner to wrap up the program of events.
While Agatha Amata’s call for TV hosts ended on 4th May 2017, the main audition is scheduled to hold on May 22, 2017.
Despite all odds, after her divorce with her popular actor/filmmaker husband, Fred Amata in 2005, Agatha Amata has indeed worked hard on her career and also in the upbringing of their two children Stephanie Amata and Oreva Amata nicely.

According to the Media Personality, Inside Out has served its purpose, now it’s time for “The Search.” The premiere of the show will showcase contestants who will compete for the position of the show host, while the show will follow on June 18, 2017.
The event will climax with Agatha Amata’s farewell recording as host of “Inside-out” themed “Nigeria Beyond Oil: The Future” and an anniversary dinner, slated for August 4, 2017.
In Agatha’s speech on her plans to bow out as presenter of Inside Out, she said:
“It’s to give young people an opportunity to showcase their talents. The purpose of the reality TV show is to call on young Nigerians who are passionate about carrying on with the legacy of the programme.
“I am not concerned if the next person to take the presenter role is either male or female, but the perfect fit should be someone who is passionate about people (in line with the vision of the programme: Touching Lives, Changing Society).”
