I went on to host something else that was just as grime and just as beautiful but now is like a chance to go back and I am excited about this. I can guarantee that this will be like nothing the fans have ever seen.” IK said during an interview.
MultiChoice Nigeria also announced that sensational musician; Seyi Shay, famous DJ; DJ Sose, and creative industry entrepreneur; Obi Asika will all be Judges on the show.

“I am looking for something refreshing, especially after the year we had in 2020, that didn’t allow us to focus on unearthing talents for the industry. With Idol, we have a unique opportunity to not only entertain but also unleash fresh talents and I am proud to be a part of that.”
The Idol franchise has over the years produced some of the most prominent musicians in Nigeria such as Timi Dakolo, Mercy Chinwo, and Omawumi, who have gone ahead to make a name for themselves in the global music scene.
