Nigerian Idol S9

The Nigerian Idol Season 9 stage has been a burst of emotions. We began with a sea of hopefuls, each with a voice and a dream. Through weeks of intense auditions, the judges have sifted through the pack, searching for that perfect blend of raw talent and great stage presence.

But the journey isn't over yet. This season delivered a plot twist – just one final spot remaining and Japh Kenti and Lammy need your votes to secure that spot. 

As for the remaining nine contestants, they are about to embark on a grueling new phase.

Nerves will be tested, weakenesses exposed, and above all, Nigerians will get the final say in who will become the winner of Nigerian Idol Season 9.
