2013 Nigerian Idols’ wildest night ends


The anxiety-filled Wild Card Show night has come to an end for the seven Nigerian Idol contestants fighting to join Debbie Rise, Safeeyat, Vicci, Kome, Immaculate Victoria, Job Emmal, Amarachi, Jay feel and Efezino. It is now left to the viewers and judges to decided who will go through to the finals.

Jeffrey Daniels, one of the judges says: “It didn’t feel like a wild card performance to me at all. The way the contestants sang, their emotions, performances and everything about the show felt like I was watching the grand finale.’

The contestant with the highest votes will take the first step towards the final stages of the competition. The judges will then select another two contestants to also go into the final stage.

Says project manager Ope Odugbemi: “The real contest begins on 16 February, where the top 12 contestants will be unveiled. A team comprising of a music director, voice coach, stylist and others will work together to craft the Nigerian Idol who can stand on his or her own amongst other Idol alumni worldwide’.

This season’s winner will get $USD 100 000 (7.5 million naira in cash, a recording contract also worth 7.5 million naira, and a brand new SUV). Runners-up will also receive prizes worth 10 million naira.

Nigerian Idol is powered by Etisalat, in association with Pepsi and supported by Beat FM.
