Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti joins Nigerian Idol as a judge

After an amazing second season that saw the crowning of Mercy Chinwo as the current Nigerian Idol, the global music phenomenon returns for a third season and steps it up with Afrobeat Legend Femi Kuti as judge.
“It’s a whole new package and cycle this season,” said Tiwa Medubi, the Project Manager. “We keep bringing in new twists and turns to make the show more interesting, two brand new cities made the audition train and most exciting is our own living legend, three-time Grammy nominee and Afrobeat king; Femi Kuti as one of our  judges

Femi Kuti who is known to be very conservative, TV shy and rarely leaves the Shrine save for few select performances in Nigeria and world tours, has agreed to be a judge on Nigerian Idol.
“I am honoured to be part of Nigerian Idol, a show that discovers talents across the country in music. Saying I love music is like saying snow is white. I'd like to be part of moulding many more talents with Nigerian Idol, this year.” - The three-time Grammy Award nominee said.
Now here's another reason to watch the show!
