Last week, viewers across the country were held spellbound as Nigeria’s biggest music reality show lit up TV screens nationwide with Episode 1 of Nigerian Idol.

The first episode of the show took viewers on a trip down memory lane as they relived some of the hilarious moments from Season I. There were also moments of music magic, bringing to life some of the most popular performances from Season I.

The debut episode also played catch up with Season I winner, Yeka Onka who has been on a tour across the globe. The stunning songbird spent months working on her album with A-list producers and opened the show at the legendary Shalamar reunion in London.

A sneak preview into Season II was a tear jerker as viewers watched the incredible physically challenged Emmanuel, fight against all odds to fly.
