• As ‘Wooden Mic’ competition is staged for worst auditions

Auditions in the ongoing Nigerian Idol season 6 competition have featured the good, bad and unbelievable singing talents across the country.

Last Sunday’s Theatre Week episode saw 17 out of 68 contestants progress to the next round of the Nigerian Idol competition. As viewers wait with bated breaths to see which contestants will make the top 10, organizers have announced a special twist to the season called the ‘Wooden Mic’ competition.

Wooden Mic is an alternative competition to the singing talent show dedicated to the contestants who were not selected by the judges during their auditions due to their inability to showcase an actual singing talent. A shortlist of these contestants who didn’t make it to the Theatre Week will contend for the Wooden Mic title, with the winner decided by the public.

Here’s how to make your selections:

    Go to the video page on the official Nigerian Idol website – www.africamagic.tv/nigerianidol

    On the website, select the ‘Wooden Mic’ menu option.

    Watch the 40 Wooden Mic finalists.

    Select your favourite on our website or our mobi site ONLY. (Please note that the selection is open to everyone and each person gets 10 selections per platform. This is not a voting process, so SMS and the MyDStv/MyGOtv app voting are not required).

The Wooden Mic competition opened on Sunday, April 25 and will run till Wednesday, June 30, 2021.

Nigerian Idol season 6 is sponsored by Bigi Drinks and Tecno Mobile. The show is available to customers on DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Confam, Yanga and GOtv Max and Jolli.
