Glo unveils Onyeka Onwenu, M.I as X Factor Judges, Toolz as host

Glo yesterday unveiled the host and judges for X-factor Africa. Toolz as host, M.I, Onyeka Onwenu and Ghanaian rapper Reggie Rockstone as judges. Two rappers and a singer. Who likes the combination? Love that Onyeka Onwenu and M.I are there but another singer would have been more appropriate...or what do you guys think? 

Meanwhile a 68 year old grandma, Mrs Evelyn D. Lawson, from Bogeme in Rivers State, auditioned yesterday. See her photo after the cut...

 

Mrs Lawson came to the stage as the third contestant. The elderly woman who was supported by her two sons  wonderfully sang the ‘Glory be to God’ song and got three “yeses” to go through to the next round. The judges and the audience were impressed with her performance and her courage to still sing at the age of 68.

Toolz being the Host is the best choice, as for the judges, K.K.A (ko kan aye), since the winner would be decided by viewers votes.

Reggie rockstone is a musician but not much of a biggie

Oh my!!!!!, the Elegant Onyeka doesn't look so happy in this pic. She specifically told the Organisers that she would be the only one allowed to wear shades. But clearly M.I and his rap mate broke the contract. Toolz wouldn't dare infuriate the great Onyeka. Toolz knows her place. And btw, if you comment on every update on dis blog, u obviously don't have a Life. Get a Life!.

Don't we already have enough shows making a mockery of some talentless people……Anyways, can't wait for the entertaining auditions

Peak Celebrities said...

Yes when does it go on air

Wrong combo, having 2 rappers is a recipe for low ratings. Is it a singing or a rapping competition? Think music producers like OJB or Paul Play is more on point. With due respect to Onyeka but she seems a bit out of touch with todays music.

Good.

Linda it is not about two rappers and a singer, it its about who has an understanding of music. some people can make catchy music but do not really understand the concept of music, while some can not sing to save their life, their knowledge of music is mind blowing.

Ok

Another experienced singer or music produce would have been good. Mayb d rapper has a good knowledge of music sha

mayowa aboah George said...

Yeah. Combination, not too good.

Linda, Simon Cowell and LA Reid are judges on X Factor US, Nicki Minajis a judge on American Idol. Point is, you do not need to be a "singer" to qualify as a judge. I'm sure even you can judge talent.

Hope this doesn't turn out as horrible as Nigeria's Got Talent did. Watched it on YouTube and was convinced that people are fucking stupid and don't vote for real talent, that show was bullshit.
X factor usually has four judges i believe. It should def have been only one rapper.

After auditions, I'll see if the show is worth it. Hopefully someone will post it on YouTube

Wow! We are going to enjoy Aunt Onyeka Onwenu's Command of English language. Her accent is superb.

Who said Onyeka was out of todays's musics? For our information, Onyeka's "One Love" till date has no rival in all the rubbish musics put together by our so called Naija musicians, talk more of her other albums.

Check out re collabo with King Sunny Ade the " if u love me, u go wait for me" and u will have no reason for not assenting to assent with my assessments.

ONYEKA ONWENU, ANYTIME ANYDAY. But for the other two, I dont know. I personally do not like d idea of havin rappers as judges on music talent shows..just me. Hope Onyeka makes up for d "loss".

kayla kardashian said...

Okay so, i think some 1 like iyanya or omawunmi or even timi wuda been better as a third judge because they been up there b4 and they can understand how sometimes ur full potentials might nt be emphasised based on certain reasons giving them better judgements and they'll give more useful advices the contestants

Anonymous said...

I think efya or becca should have been chosen as the third judge instead of that rapper from GH .
