Femi Kuti on Nigerian Idols as Judge
Femi Kuti is on Nigerian Idols as Judge in the Third season of the well acclaimed Nigeria Idols 2012 edition.
“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, it’s a remarkable testament to the power of the Nigerian Idol brand for him to join the panel of judges.
