Going back to their roots: Nigerian Idol top 6 bring it home with Nigerian hit songs

It was all about coming home as the Nigerian Idol top 6 were all about music from our shores as they took their song choices from the current hits flooding the Nigerian airwaves, all by Nigerian artists. Femi Sowoolu taking on the mantle of guest judge for the show, and for the first time, the contestants were paired up and singing duets.
Seyi Shay was the first artist covered, as Efezino performed her hit song ‘Loving Your Way’. It seemed she sold both the crowd and the judges on her performance because she was told by Jeffrey Daniel, “You were killing it on the chorus…a pleasant performance.” Yinka Davies followed up with, ‘It was more than pleasant I loved it!” And Femi Kuti gave his
seal of approval, telling her that she seemed really comfortable on stage.
Moses took a risk and sang ‘Oliver Twist’ by D’banj, but his risk paid off big time. Yinka said with a dramatic flourish, “My people of the Democratic Republic of Nigeria, I have a confession… I love it!!!” Femi Sowoolu told him, “When I first heard the song choice I turned and asked Yinka, “wow can he carry it?”…With that performance, you [have proven] you are the biggest threat of the competition.”
The show turned the heat on the contestants up a notch, by pairing contestants with each other to sing duets. Efezino and Abasiakan were the first pair, singing ‘Comforter’s Song’ by Asa and Jeremiah Gyang.
Then came Debbie Rise and Moses—‘Bottom Belle’ by Omawumi and Flavour was their song of choice. Lastly, Sefeeyat and Jayfeel sang ‘Without my Heart’ by Tiwa Savage and Don Jazzy.
Debbie Rise sang Chude K’s ‘Gaga’ and she got a rise from the in-house crowd. Femi Sowoolu told her, “The music industry is pretty intricate—your stage play is great, and with a name like Debbie Rise you’re half way there to being a star. I don’t think your voice quite carried your song, I don’t see how that song works for a lady as
beautiful as you.” Femi Kuti was more lenient and told her, “You’re an African girl; you’re beautiful, you’re sexy. Your performance was brave [and] you’ve got what it takes for as an entertainer. I’ll give you a pass mark.”
JayFeel stepped onto the stage to sing ‘Azonto (Freestyle)’ by Wizkid.
Jeffrey Daniel told him, “The Naija pop song, club and dance scene, they are not really about vocal ability they are about entertainment, and you just gave us a great example of that.” Femi Sowoolu agreed, telling him “You hypnotised me. The juju wey you use hold my hand, must have been powerful because with all the other contestants who came out, I was writing notes!”Sefeeyat sang Omawumi’s ‘If you ask me’. It seemed to please the judges. Jeffrey said to her, “You did a great job, your performance was great. There were a couple of notes here and there, but overall, it was a nice performance.” Yinka agreed telling her, “I loved the way you sang that song!” Raindrop by Tuface Idibia was the last song for the evening and it was Abasiakan who tried to do justice to the song. Yinka seemed to enjoy it thoroughly telling him that she loved his vocal tone. Femi Sowoolu told him that, “I heard about you before I came to this show—people told me that you were one of the best on this show. You kind of proved it; what I see in you is natural talent but you need to become supernatural.”
So there you have it. The six contestants have sung on the show, and for one, it will be his/her very last time as a contestant. Who will be the last contestant left standing?Watch who makes it to the next stage on Saturday on NTA at 3:00pm, Sound City and ONTV at 7:00pm, Silverbird at 7:30pm, Superscreen at 6:30pm, TVC at 9:30pm and Real Star TV on Startimes at 9pm, to watch the results show.

Double it up: Nigerian Idol contestants sing duets

Now that Danny Angus, aka “The Accountant” is no more, sent home along with Kome, Nigerian Idol is left with just six contestants: Safeeyat,JayFeel, Abasiakan, Efezino, Debbie Rise and Moses.

On Sunday night, the contestants leaped into the future after last weeks’ blasts from the past, trying some of the biggest Nigerian hit songs on for size. Who hit the spectacular notes and who was a spectacular failure? And just how did those duets go?

The show turned the heat on the contestants up a notch, by pairing contestants with each other to sing duets. Efezino and Abasiakan were the first pair, singing ‘Comforter’s Song’ by Asa and Jeremiah Gyang.
Then came Debbie Rise and Moses—‘Bottom Bele’ by Omawumi and Flavour was their song of choice. Lastly, Sefeeyat and Jayfeel sang ‘Without my Heart’ by Tiwa Savage and Don Jazzy.

Efezino and Abasiakan were a well-matched pair, and delivered a breezy, song, that made you think of cuddling up to a significant other. It was definitely a good match and hopefully, they will get to perform together again.

Debbie Rise and Moses were also surprisingly good together. They looked like they were having tons of fun dancing around on stage and killed it with their performance.

JayFeel and Sefeeyat. Sigh. It sounded like the poor girl was on her own. She carried song almost entirely by herself with her powerful vocals, while JayFeel sang his lines out of tune, and mouthed the words in the chorus, trying to hog the stage. Still, the crowd loved it and ate it all up.

Soaring success as Nigerian Idol officially launches its Top twelve with night of love songs

Nigerian Idol hosted a dazzling night of food, fun and fanfare as they launched the top 12 contestants for the premier talent hunt show on
Saturday, 16 February, 2012. It was the first night the contestants were officially performing together, and along with celebrity guests
performers Lynxxx, Tiwa Savage and season 2 winner Mercy Chinwo, the newly revealed contestants made sure that the Civic Centre in Victoria
Island was the place to be on Saturday evening.

Ill Rhymz was host extraordinaire for the unveiling, which was a celebratory night as the top 12 contestants officially took to the stage
for the first time and serenaded the crowd with love songs that were the perfect backdrop for the romantic Valentine’s mood of the week. The
talented singers showed off their spectacular vocals and the gathered audience that included celebrities like singer Nneka, Michelle Dede,,
Lala Akindoju, OC Ukeje, Toke Makinwa and more, alongside the judges of the show, Femi Kuti, Yinka Davies and Jeffrey Daniel, sat back and
enjoyed the show as they dined.

  “We know we have got the best talent we can find,” said Rotimi Pedro, Group Managing Director of the show’s production company Optima Media
Group (OMG),  as he spoke about the contestants selected for the current third season of the show. He also extended a word of gratitude to the
lead sponsor of the show, telecoms giant Etisalat, who have supported all three seasons of the show so far, and Pepsi, for being an Associate
sponsor on Nigerian Idol.

The CEO of Etisalat Nigeria, Steven Evans, was also effusive about his praise for the show as he highlighted the partnership Etisalat and
Nigerian Idol had forged over the past three seasons. He said, “You need to watch. [The contestants] are all hungry to be the third Nigerian
Idol…The quality of talent is bigger, brighter and better.”

The performances were the crowning jewel of the evening, starting off with Lynxxx, who, with the help of the live band, seduced the crowd with
a knock out live performance. Tiwa Savage sang a touching tribute to late singer and performer Goldie Harvey, before she performed some of
her most loved hits.

And then came the most exciting part of the evening: the twelve successful season 3 competitors were unveiled. Singing ‘No One Like You’
by P-Square, the talented group were luminous as they made their stage debut. That was not all for the evening, as the contestants then formed
more intimate groups and sang again. Immaculate Victoria, Abasiakan, Joe Emmal, and Kome sang ‘A Whole New World’, from the Walt Disney
animation, ‘Aladdin’. Then Jay Feel, Danny Angus, Debbie Rise and Amara performed ‘Oyi (I Dey Catch Cold)’ by Flavour. Moses, Efezino, Vicci and
Sefeeyat were the last to perform for the evening, singing George Benson’s ‘Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You’.

The night was brought to an explosive end as season 2 winner, Mercy Chinwo, brought the house to its feet and started an impromptu party
with her infectious vocals.

Now, the contestants have been unveiled and have had their first top 12 performances, which aired on Sunday, 17 February. Who will be the first
two contestants Nigeria will choose to evict from the show?

Nigerian Idol Top 12: Who rose to the top and who sank like a stone?

Fresh off their electrifying debut and their guerrilla-style flash mob in the last week, the Nigerian Idol top 12 contestants took to the stage
on Sunday, 17 February, and performed for the first time to compete for your votes. The question of the moment was: would the top 12 be able to
live up to their hype and win Nigeria over to their corner?

This week featured the contestants performing hits from the last two years, and while there were some ups and downs, overall, the Idol
hopefuls had a great night as they broke in the bigger, brighter Nigerian Idol stage. The strongest crowd-pleasing performance of the
night belonged to none other than Jay Feel, whose weak vocal performance was overshadowed by his domineering stage presence. Danny Angus changed
his look, ditching the accountant for a more urban feel as he took to the stage, to the delight of the in-studio audience.

Rapper iLLBLISS was the guest judge for the evening, and while he gave thoughtful critiques to many of the contestants, he was largely positive
about the performances that he saw throughout the show. It was not all hearts and flowers for the contestants however, and more than one
contestant took a beating from the judges when it came to their vocal performances.

It is now up to the audiences at home to decide who they want to see stick around for the top 10. Who will they save?

Watch Nigerian Idol on Saturday on NTA at 3:00pm, Sound City and ONTV at 7:00pm, Silverbird at 7:30pm, Superscreen at 6:30pm, Real star TV on
Star Times at 9:00pm and TVC at 9:30pm, to watch the results show. Then,catch all-new performances on Sunday on NTA at 3:30pm, Sound City and
