Well congratulations are certainly in order, young Lauren Keyana Palmer AKA Keke Palmer has landed herself a talk show under the bosom of BET’s (Black Entertainment TV) wing.
With the likes of Oprah, Queen Latifah and Wendy Williams, believe it or not Keke will in fact be the youngest talk show host in history, at the age of 20. Applause is needed asap! Her show will be called The Keke Project and the shows producer is Judge Greg Mathis, who is mainly known for the likes of the court show Judge Mathis.
Obviously from her age, the audience she attracts and social media responses, the show’s demographic will be aimed at young people. The show will be running over a four week period this summer, featured once a week covering topics from fashion, culture, social issues, pop, celebs and “one the street” segments.
As many young people nowadays, Keke is active on social media with an impressive 1.06 Million on Instagram, and 1.4 Million followers on Twitter. She likes to interact with fans and measure their responses to certain topics. Its no wonder why a talk show is in the works with the responses she gathered.
The 20-year-old said: “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling.” She adds “If I’m dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open genuine dialogue between us.”
Keke first entered onto many radars with the hit film Akeela and the Bee (2006) starring along side Laurence Fishburn. This was followed with another hit Disney’s Jump In (2007) (personal favourite-sue me) then headlined her own Nickelodeon series called True Jackson VP. Can you say making movements?
Twitter showered the Ms. Keke in praises. The likes of Perez Hilton, Chairman and Chief Executive of BET Debra Lee, Young Hollywood, WGCI 107.5 FM, 106 And Park, and lastly queen Wendy Williams.
This potentially will unravel a new face of talk show drawing in more young adults who will unite and share a sense of familiarity. Again, well done paving waves for the next generation.
Here’s a throwback to Keke’s cute throwback era. Wink!
