The event was a fun and lively affair. Members of the press had the opportunity to get a feel of what it means to audition for Nigerian Idols during the Press Idol singing competition. Press competed “karaoke style” for the opportunity to win $1000 and a Beat by Dre earphones.
In the spirit of winning, our Facebook ‘Ask an Idol’ winner, Ese Philix was also present at the event and got to meet Evelle, Joe Blue and other past Nigerian Idol contestants.
