The winner of season two of ‘The Voice Nigeria’, a musical reality talent show, would earn a recording contract with Universal Music Group, an SUV car worth N7 million and a trip to Abu Dhabi.
Prospective contestants of the 17-episode show on Tuesday converged in Abuja for the open audition, NAN reports.
Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, director, M-Net West Africa, organisers of the show said: “We are thrilled to announce the second season of The Voice Nigeria.”
She explained that the first season of the show in 2016 proved to be hugely successful and popular with audiences not only in Nigeria but all over the continent.
“And our viewers should expect stellar performances by the artistes and all the familiar intrigues and excitement as the coaches jostle to pick the best performers.”
Since its original launch in 2010, The Voice has gone on to win audiences in many countries, including US, Australia and the UK.
The Voice Nigeria employs the same format including a panel of four coaches who critique the contestants’ performances.
The show starts airing from the blind auditions where contestants who scale through the open auditions are given 90 seconds to perform with a band with the chairs of judges turned the opposite way.
Last year’s judges were Waje (Aituaje Iruobe), Timi Dakolo, Patoranking (Patrick Okorie) and 2baba (Innocent) Idibia.
IK Osakioduwa and Stephanie Coker co-hosted the show.
