It was a mixed basket of emotions for viewers last weekend on Nigerian Idol as the hit show aired its second and third episodes. The two episodes which ran from Friday December 9 through Monday December 11, across television stations in the country showed the auditions that took place in the cities of Abuja and Enugu.
“And still, these loaded episodes are only a tip of the iceberg,” explained Producer Lilias Bode. “Nigerian Idol will bring to the fore all the drama, excitement and beautiful music it is known for. Dreams are being born here and it is our pleasure that viewers get to see the entire picture behind these immensely talented young people.”
Starting off in Abuja, viewers were first introduced to new Nigerian Idol judge Charly Boy who wasted no time settling into the show. The episode which aired from Friday took viewers through some of the talents the FCT had to offer, from the melodious to the ridiculous. At the end of the day, young talents were offered golden tickets to appear at The Dream Studios in Lagos.
Then, it was Port-Harcourt’s turn. In a dramatic fashion, Charly Boy chose to arrive the venue on a motorbike while the other judges; Yinka Davies and Jeffrey Daniel flew down via official airline partner, Air Nigeria.
