Just like the premise of the original show Pop Idol, Nigerian Idol is a television reality show with a nation-wide search for Nigeria's next solo superstar, which will offer one young talent the opportunity that raw talented singers have until now, only dreamed of. Nigerian Idol aims to find the best singer in the country who can be defined as the "National" singer, and International Artiste.
Nigerian Idol Season I was won by Yeka Onka, a contestant from Abia State, whose story was really interesting. She put up performances which improved at every stage of the competitioneven though she had her low moments, and was able to convince the voting public that she is indeed the right person to be crowned the first ever Nigerian Idol.
Just as it happened on the previous season following the Idol format, a panel of three judges, made up of some of the music industry's most influential experts, will be faced with the daunting prospect of choosing 50 talented singers to face the viewing public who will decide, in a series of live shows, who most deserves the chance of stardom. These 50 hopefuls will be set tasks to prove that they have got the musical talent to make it in one of the world's fastest-growing and most competitive music industries. The Winner will be chosen after a live show in which the final two contestants sing to the nation in the hope of clinching the prize that will change their lives forever.
