Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti joins Nigerian Idol as a judge

Femi Kuti who is known to be very conservative, TV shy and rarely leaves the Shrine save for few select performances in Nigeria and world tours, has agreed to be a judge on Nigerian Idol.
“I am honoured to be part of Nigerian Idol, a show that discovers talents across the country in music. Saying I love music is like saying snow is white. I'd like to be part of moulding many more talents with Nigerian Idol, this year.” - The three-time Grammy Award nominee said.
Now here's another reason to watch the show!

Linda, what makes him a legend? His father, Fela was a legend. Femi is a good musician who lives under his father's shadow.

How many are the Judges now with the inclusion of Femi Kuti? The addition of the Afro-beat Legend will surely boost the rating of the Show.

This for me, this a good move from Nigerian Idols. We need more veterans who actually know their beans.

This is actually a better choice for a judge. He's a legend youths can look up to. Unlike that charly boy (linda) of a character.

Well at least he has more talent that anyone who has been there before him. I just keep feeling that he's bigger than Nigerian Idols somehow.

Like someone said here Charlie boy and Femi kuti combo is one kain .
Am not seeing them two working together , Femi will not take the crap area fada has to offer and you just cannot stop the cross dresser from his moments to shine , what !!!!! With all the publicity , am going to be so glued to the screen.

Ejogene said...

This is good, A least someone who have a music career and not some DJ and people who just impose themselves on other people's consciousness. By force by fire, you must notice me.

Even though i might not be able to watch it cuz im in London, i still believe its a serious + to the show. im happy that real artists that have something to offer are being given the opportunity to impact into the new generation of singers.

pls is der anyway we in London can watch the show? I'll be happy if i can get positive responses.

Good choice! Brilliant! Finally a reason 2 watch d show! *whew*

Warri Girl said...

Brillant move to include him as one of the judges

Just Me said...

Guys let's not forget, Jeffery Daniels who was the only reasonable judge on the show.

Of all 3 judges in last season, I preferred to listen to Jeff, cos he always had something good to say.

ChiChiLuv said...

This is a smarter choice! He is a song writer, singer, producer and all round musicican who has travelled the world on tour, played world stages with so much information to offer young musicians/singers about not just the CREATIVE aspect of the music but the BUSINESS aspect as well. People forget that the word "BUSINESS" follows the word "SHOW".

You can be the best show man or woman but if you ain't running what you do like a business, I sorry for you because you will be BROKE!

Outside of Nigeria, who know Charly Boy? Who can sing any of his song from verse to chorus to bridge to refrain to the last verse? His penchant for being different, I am not going to say weird, has kept him on the rader but other than that, I am sorry Charly Boy is a local champion...yes, I said it! As a regular dude on the streets on San Francisco who he is and they will look at you like what the hell are you talking about but guarantee they will know Femi and if not, then Fela. Not to take away from CB but Femi will bring a cross over appeal to the show (I hope).
