After a three-year break, Nigerian Idol will return with Season 6 to unearth some of the best musical talents the country has to offer. The Idol franchise has over the years produced some of the biggest Nigerian singers such as Timi Dakolo, Mercy Chinwo, and Omawumi who have gone ahead to make a name for themselves in the global music scene.
Barely two weeks after announcing the return of the fan favourite reality singing competition show; MultiChoice Nigeria has revealed that the reward for the eventual winner will be a recording contract with a leading record label and N50 million worth of prizes which include a cash prize and a brand-new car.

Speaking on the prize money, the Chief Executive Officer of MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, said: “Our drive to empower talented Nigerian youth is at the forefront of our decision to return with Nigerian Idol.
