Enroute Benin As Nigerian Idol Train Bids Owerri Farewell

Saturday, October 20, 2012 began with heavy rainfall in Owerri but this did not stop the talented from flooding Imo Concorde hotel, the venue for the audition for the Nigerian Idol.



To compensate for their perseverance, the lead sponsor Etisalat, provided entertainment to ease the tension of the hopefuls which the rain had earlier compounded. There was music and comedy – headlines by Kay Switch who performed his hit song, &#39Sister Caro’, Wizboy who performed his song, ‘Onwusagie and Infinity’ and Obiwon, who performed his new single, ‘Father’ as well as his all time hit song, ‘Obi Mu O’.



Afrobeat legend and one of the judges for the season, Femi Kuti said he was impressed by the display of talents in Owerri as there was higher level of originality and composure compared to the other states. He is anxious to see if Benin can still raise the bar.



The Nigerian Idol auditions will move to Benin on the 3rd of November and will hold at Constantial Hotels 24/26 Airport Road opposite Benin Airport Exit Gate, Benin City, Edo while Lagos will host the grand finale on 9th and 10th of November, 2012.
