Etisalat-Sponsored Nigerian Idol on a roll with Season 5

After an electrifying season that saw the crowning of super-talented Evelle as the winner of Nigerian Idol Season 4, the much anticipated Etisalat sponsored music TV reality show is set to roll on TV screens nationwide for a 5th season.

For what promises to be a breath-taking television show, the 5th season of the Etisalat sponsored Nigerian Idol will showcase the return of the multi-talented neo-soul singer, Yinka Davies who joins R&B Hitmaker Darey Art Alade and Afro Beat musician, Dede Mabiakwu on the show as judges.



The ever dynamic IllRymz will also be returning this season to continue his reign as host for the 5th time on Nigeria Idol.

A media launch was organised by the sponsors of the TV show to formally kick off the show. The event which held at Mela Rossa, Ikoyi, Lagos on January 14, was filled with numerous fun-filled activities such as a mini Press Idol competition but the closing performance by Nigerian Idol Season 4 Winner, Evelle Zibili was the climax of the night. 

The first episode for Season 5 is expected to air in March, 2015 following further auditions in Port Harcourt on January 17th, Abuja on January 24th, Ibadan on January 31st and Lagos on February 7th and 8th.
The winner will be going home with a brand new SUV, and a 7.5 million naira cash prize, amongst other rewards.

See below pictures that best captures the night!

I knew Nneka won't last on the show. She was boring with a capital B. I missed Yinka Davies and her drama. The way Yinka says well done in the show, is hilarious. Lol

Love nigerian idol but the only problem i have with it is that none of the winners as ever risen to stardom unlike the other Talent show we all know (u know it) (correct me if am wrong), aside from the money they get and the so-called record deal, what else? i'm yet to see an album or anyone of them receiving a major award or being nominated. Is there even really a record deal? i think they are left to pursue there own careers by themselves after the show..... just saying.
the money is good though.

Why una no dey appreciate una thing. What makes American Idol better than 9ja idol. U better start using ur sense it's 2015

Subomi said...

watched 1 or 2 episodes, find it very hilarious but cool, Nigeria do have talented undiscovered singers but some people thinking of being contestants should just please stay home.
