Week after week, the Nigerian Idol contestants take to the stage to deliver memorable performances. They continue this Sunday with another interesting playlist that includes Nigerian and Billboard top hits. Check out the playlist.


‘Johnny’ by Yemi Alade & ‘Only Girl in the World’ by Rihanna

Akunna hits the stage on Sunday to perform ‘Johnny by Yemi Alade’ from her King of Queens album released in 2014 and ‘Only Girl in the World’ by Rihanna from the 2010 album, ‘Loud’. Known for her fierce and electrifying performances, we can only expect great things from Akunna this Sunday.


‘Seun Rere’ by Christy Essien Igbokwe & ‘All of Me’ by John Legend

Comfort performs ‘Seun Rere’ by singer and songwriter, Christy Essien Igbokwe from her album Ever Liked My Person released in 1981 and ‘All of Me’ by John Legend from the 2013 studio album Love in the Future. We hope to see more of Comfort’s remarkable stage growth our judges rave about this Sunday.


‘Pray for Me’ by Darey ft Soweto Gospel Choir & ‘I will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston

Francis lights up the stage this Sunday with his cover of ‘Pray for Me’ by Darey ft Soweto Gospel Choir from his album Naked released in 2015 and ‘I will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston, which was a soundtrack to the 1992 movie, The Bodyguard. We are hoping Francis will deliver more of that amazing performance we have grown accustomed to this Sunday.


‘Iyawo Mi’ by Timi Dakolo & ‘How Deep is Your Love’ by Bee Gees

Kingdom brings his energy to the Live Show as he covers Timi Dakolo’s ‘Iyawo Mi’ released in 2014 and ‘How Deep is Your Love’ by the Bee Gees released in 1977. Going by his last showcase on stage, we might be in for another thrilling performance this Sunday.

Only three weeks to the Show Finale and every performance count if our contestants intend to make it to the final week. This Sunday’s performance is no exception, and we look forward to them pulling all the stops to make Sunday night a memorable one.
