Orange Sitara goes even further…

Most of us complained a lot of times that Orange Sitara was completely copied from other international famous dance/singing competition…

Well, seems they tried to be original, for once….

Since some weeks they brought a new concept into the competion….

They made the participants sing, dance and even the mentors had to perform live…

And one of them thought:

Why dont we make the musicians sing???

Well, that was a completely foolish idea… at least for me…

Since some weeks, the musicians have been performing live, practically most of them, from the electronic keyboard player, the guitarist to the tabla player (technically known as a tabalti)

The story does not stop here!!!

They have even introduced another extra into this concept:

Why not make the viewers vote for the musicians???

LOL ! Who will want to spend rs10 per sms to vote for them (except the family members and friends of course)…

Surtout dans ene lepok kot p serre ceinture and petrol p monter lol…

No need to tell you how “fabulous” those musicians perform, LIVE !
Hoever, not applicable to all, but still !

Something perhaps the organisers (mbc) might find informative to know, musicians are made to play musical instruments and not all of them know really how to sing, ya, they do sing, but not all of them are  good enough to sing LIVE on a national television channel…

I am was a musician too, some years back, ya lol, i was a tabalti (tabla n dholok player) in religions ceremonies (ya lol! believe it or not, i played in kirtans and bhajans, despite i never believed in god!) lol…
I also play electronic keyboard, but nowadays, i rarely have the time to spend some time playing music, since am blogging lol…
My Dad, and uncle too are musicians, and at times, they even sang & played instruments in weddings, hotels etc, as a hobby/leisure of course!

We are not big singers/musicians(not me definitely), but i dont go live onto tv to show that i can sing when i dont know how to!

However, there are not many musicians who can play their instruments and sing at the same time, except of course, famous superstars singers which Orange Sitara wants to build here in Mauritius it seems lol…

lol, just before blogging, Vicky was telling me that “to ene fan orange sitara twa”.
In fact ya, but not exactly, as i like to watch their show because of their originality, stupidity(sometimes and often lol), copying of international ideas/concepts, importance they give to certain persons,  quality of tv platforms they offer here in Mauritius to promote new talents…

For sure, they do make the best SHOW on tv lol !

So, how do you find this innovative and orginal concept brought forward on our “petit ecran” these days???

    Avishs last blog post..Truth about the Net PC of Mauritius Telecom


  6. ROFL at the attempt to mask their face!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
    (Anyone who saw the JT will know of MBC’s lame pixelisation…) 😛

    Anyway, musicians are meant to play music & singers are meant to sing… can’t be more explicit! Haha 😉


  7. Ha ha! Fer moi rié Yashvin!
    Orange Sitara là bèze sa!
    Zot seye copier ban l’émission étranger, mais zot pas pou kavap. Mo désolé pou dir ki ban dimoune production MBC 1) zot pa qualifié
    2) zot pena l’idée
    3) zot pas compran ki été télévision ek téléspectater!

    Mo p dir sa parski mone travay pour “Nouvelle Star”, et c’est quasi impossible pou MBC fer ène l’émission au moins aussi bien avec moyens ki zot ena, pas akoz moyens ki zot ena, mais akoz ban dimoun ki travay là-bas!

    Mo gagne honter pou Moris, mo pas koné comment directer MBC kapav dormi asoir avec sa ban betises ki li produire là ek sirtout koman ORANGE kavap communiquer lor ène l’émission ossi médiocre!
    Moi, mo pas gagne compran, parcki mo koné ki avec tigit moyen kavap fer bon zaffer…


  8. @PG: Elo!

    Vraiement content mone gagne comments de someone professionel 😀 et plus qualifier ke beaucoup d’entre nous pou donne ene avis professionel.

    For those who dont know, PG was once working for a private radio in Mru and even on mbc radio, isnt it dear friend?

    Pas donne zotte idea Nouvelle Star, pas koner ki enkor zotte cpv inventer et adapter dan contexte moricien lol 😛


  9. To be precised: I worked in mauritius at:
    Radio Plus: 2002-2004
    Top FM: 2004 (9months) + 2006 (3months)

    in France at:
    Europe 2 (now Virgin Radio): 2004-2005
    Fun Radio: 2006
    Europe 1: 2006
    M6: 2007-now

    Never worked at MBC, but i know 12 ex-collegues working there now.
    They almost all agree on the fact that the problem at MBC is people, nothing else.
    I am really sorry for this situation, I must admit I would have preferred to work and live my passion in Mauritius, but it’s not so easy because of these “people” who claim to know everything but does nothing.

    I am really happy that persons like Yashvin don’t hesitate to make clever critics and that others respond to that. MBC “managers” (if they can be called that) and Orange management sould have a look at what people think. But do they care at all? I’am afraid not…
