Winner of 6th Nigerian Idol talent reality shows Kingdom has recalled how his grandmother predicted his great many years ago.
“My grandma used to say one day you’ll be very great. And then she died. And I almost gave up.
“But I want to thank the judges for believing in me and my fellow contestants for pushing me,” Kingdom said as he won the contest against finalist, Francis Atela.
Kingdom Kroseide, a Computer Science and Informatics student at Federal University Bayelsa, emerged the “Nigerian Idol’’ after months of an intense musical contest involving over 3000 hopefuls from across the country, and over 16 million votes recorded at the finale.
Kingdom, Francis, Akunna, Comfort, and Faith Jason were the top 5 from the 11 who made it to the live shows from the audition stages.
The competition evolved from the final 5 to the last 2 contestants – Kingdom and Francis – who battled it out on Sunday, July 11, 2021, in a keenly contested affair that saw Kingdom emerge as the eventual winner. Kingdom too is music teacher.
During the finale event, both finalists performed songs by Fela Kuti. While Francis sang Yellow Fever, Kingdom rendered Gentleman.
Highpoints of the night include performances by the judges and a beautiful rendition of One Hit by Cohbams Asuquo, one of the guest judges on the show alongside Kingdom.
Also artists like Patoranking, Ayra Starr, Ice Prince and Chike performed at the event.
Patoranking sang Celebrate Me, which he used to pay tribute to Sound Sultan, whose death was announced on Sunday morning.
As the winner, Kingdom walked home with the grand prize, which included a cash prize of N30 million, a brand new SUV, a six-track EP recording deal with three music videos included, an all-expense-paid trip to Seychelles, and a weekend getaway to Dubai for two.
