Ric Hassani, who refers to himself as the “technical judge,” discussed his special position in this year’s competition.

I think I’m going to bring more vigour to the show. I’m going to bring more tenacity. I’m going to bring more fire. I want to hear really good singers. This is a role I take very seriously, so I can’t wait to get started.

– He said.

About the requirements for winning the competition, he mentioned:

You have to know what you’re doing, know what you can do and know what you can’t do so that you can learn how to get it right. I feel like the Nigerian Idol platform is where you come to shine, but you also come to learn and that’s very important because how you shine is by learning and putting your head down. That’s what I want to see.

Since there can only be one winner, Omawumi, on her part, emphasized that competitors must be prepared and resolute for the demands of the competition. She continued by saying that, in her opinion, the secret to success is a combination of skill and hard effort.

MultiChoice is committed to enabling young talent to actualise their dreams and delivering premium entertainment to our audience, The success of previous editions of Nigerian Idol has encouraged more young Nigerians to dare to dream. Today they are some of the voices that carry our African stories and inspire others to live their dreams. Season 9 promises to be bigger and more entertaining than other seasons.
