Former Idol contestant and superstar singer Omawumi will be a guest Judge on Nigerian Idol this Sunday. Omawumi built a following for herself right from her time on West African Idol where she emerged runner up and has since created a career for herself in the Nigerian music industry and Africa at large.
After a successful run on the show, Omawumi went on to release her debut single “In The Music” in the year 2008 and released her debut album “Wonder woman” in the year 2009. The album laid the groundwork for her critically acclaimed sophomore album “Lasso of Truth” which debuted on the 10th of April 2013. She has also released two more albums; “In her Feelings” and “Love Deep High Life” which have received critical acclaim.
She is also known as one of the vocal powerhouses in the Nigerian music industry because of her amazing and sonorous voice which made her stand out while on West African Idol. This has given her a distinct personality in the Nigerian music space.
Proving that she is a lady with many talents, Omawumi also spread her wings to the acting scene and has been involved in many stage and movie productions. She scored her first role on the V-Monologues a stage show geared towards portraying the plights and struggles of women in Nigeria. She scored another role in ‘Oluronbi’ alongside her former co-contestant and winner of West African Idol, Timi Dakolo.
Omawumi finally made her screen debut with the AMAA award-winning movie ‘Inale’. She has also featured in other productions including; ‘House of Gold’ and ‘She is’ which she co-produced alongside Waje. With all of these experiences under her belt, we are sure Omawumi will do the utmost best in making sure worthy Nigerian Idol hopefuls get a Golden Ticket and move on to theatre week.
