Nigerian Idol: Top 5 contestants emerge


Nigerian Idol S6 is gradually coming to an end and the top five contestants are ready to battle it out for the top spot.

Sunday night’s show was themed pop versus jazz and the contestants were required to perform a song from each genre.

Over the course of the week, the contestants made a visit to Bigi for a meet and greet, where they performed their version of a Bigi jingle as a team.


The five also had the opportunity to meet with TV personality Denrele Edun, who gave them “fabulosity”.

Edun schooled them on how to become a brand ambassador and their meeting ended with each contestant leaving with a package from the Lush Hair brand.

Sunday night, Faith Jason opened the floor with his rendition of ‘Someone You Loved’ by Louis Capaldi. Comfort took over by performing ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran. Fan favourite, Kingdom, performed ‘Just the Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars. The girl with great charisma, Akunna, took the stage to perform ‘Wrecking Ball’ by Miley Cyrus.


To end the first round of songs, Francis Atela closed the stage with ‘Too Good at Goodbye’ by Sam Smith.

Following the first round of songs, host IK asked guest judge, Mr P, who his winner was and the well-known singer mentioned Akunna.

For the second round (Jazz), Faith Jason opened the stage with ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ by Etta James. The Judges were impressed with his second performance.

The show finally came to an end with Francis Atela’s rendition, ‘Hello’ by Lionel Richie.

With over seven million votes for the top six, unfortunately, it was the end of the road for Emmanuel as he exited the competition Sunday night.

Viewers need to vote for their favourite contestants as the power to determine who stays and who leaves is solely in their hands.

To vote for their favourite contestant, viewers can do that through Africa Magic website,, and Africa Magic mobile site by selecting contestants of their choice and entering their number of votes.
