After pulling off impressive performance after impressive performance on the Nigerian Idol Live Stage every single week, Progress can finally rest easy because it has all paid off.
Tonight, the talented musician has been announced the winner of this Season of Nigerian Idol, after amassing the lion’s share of public Votes in a week-long battle at the polls against velvety-voiced runner-up Zadok.
The announcement was made by Host IK, at the tail end of an electrifying Finale that brought out stars including Pheelz, and also saw Judges Simi, Obi Asika and D’banj perform their hearts out for an excited live audience.
For defeating the odds and coming out tops, Progress will walk away with a prize package valued at a cool 100 Million NGN. He wins a cash prize of 30 million NGN, a brand-new SUV, a Bigi branded refrigerator and a year’s supply of Bigi drinks. He will also get to record an EP and a music video, enjoy a weekend getaway from TravelBeta and receive a DStv Explora fully installed with a 12-month premium subscription.
Zadok, who fought gallantly through the Season, will not go home empty-handed either. The talented crooner walks away with the opportunity of a lifetime; an EP produced by a leading music producer in Nigeria and a top-notch music video shoot!
