Nigerian Idol Judges

The organizers of the Nigerian Idol, MultiChoice Nigeria has announced the host and judges for the new season of the show.

MultiChoice Nigeria made the announcement on Monday after they had earlier announce that the show would be back after a three years suspension of the show.

They announced popular TV personality IK Osakioduwa as the host for the season 6 of the music reality show.

IK is a TV personality with over a decade of experience hosting several high profile events across the continent including the Big Brother Africa show.

With his demonstrated savviness and ability to keep an audience engaged, IK is no doubt a host that will do justice to the show.

“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. 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. I can guarantee that this will be like nothing the fans have ever seen.” IK said during an interview.

This line-up of judges is a mix of industry experience, an understanding of the business of music as well as a clear understanding of fans engagement.

Speaking on her involvement with the Idols franchise as a judge, Seyi Shay said “ 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 talents and I am proud to be a part of that”.

Something that I have been able to do for the best part of my over 20 years career,” Obi Asika said.
