“I was excited when I was called to host this show because I once auditioned to host the show and I didn’t get it,” he said.

“I did go on to host something else that was just as grime and just as beautiful produced by African Magic or M-net at the time but now is like a chance to go back and I am excited about this. Can guarantee that this will be like nothing the fans have ever seen.” He added

Also speaking, Seyi Shay hailed the timing of this season’s edition of the show. She added that it would help people overcome the tumultuous memories of 2020.

“I am really excited about being a judge on this show this year. I am looking for something refreshing, especially after the year we had in 2020, that didn’t allow us to focus on unearthing talents for the industry.

With Idol, we have a unique opportunity to not only entertain but also unleash fresh talent. I am proud to be a part of that”. She added

 “We are at a point in the Nigerian music industry where we cannot allow the enormous talents that are scattered all over the country go to waste. We need to do a better job of giving these talents a platform to showcase what they can do.” Obi Asika said.


Similarly, Dj Sose reiterated his commitment to helping the organisers discover world-class talents. He revealed he has plans to help them grow at the forthcoming edition of the show.


Nigerian Idol has birthed several contemporary prominent singers such as Mercy Chinwo.  K-Peace emerged as the show’s last winner in 2015
