Nigerian Idol is celebrating the season of love and the launch of its top 12 phase of the competition with a phenomenal show, set for Saturday, February 16, 2012. Stellar artists such as Tiwa Savage, Naeto C, and Lynxx are ready to set the stage on fire at Civic Centre, Victoria Island with amazing performances—and, Nigeria’s top 12 Idol contestants will be there to perform right alongside them. It will be a night of ‘Golden Love Songs’, as the contenders perform some of the world’s greatest odes to passion; love songs whose roots are right here in Nigeria. Expect a night of romance kindled by exceptional singers and a truly Valentine’s atmosphere.
“Season three has been the best yet,” said Opeyemi Odugbemi, Project Manager for the show. “These contestants have worked hard to get where they are in the top 12, and they are the cream of the crop when it comes to vocal talent in this country. It is going to be an exclusive night of food, love, and music that is sure to make you smile, dance and fall in love again. I cannot wait to see what they have in store for what I’m sure will be an unparalleled night of entertainment.”
The stage is getting bigger and the lights brighter as Nigerian Idol gears up and heads into its top 12 phase. Some of the country’s brightest young stars have come and gone; some defeated by the ordeal of the competition, others standing firm in triumph.
