The brand, which owns DSTV, a Sub-Saharan African direct broadcast satellite service, broke the news on Sunday.

“Your audition should not be longer than 30 seconds, so chose the part of your song that best shows off your voice. No instruments or backtracks are allowed.
“Should your audition be successful you will be invited to audition in person in front of the Nigerian Idol judges.”
The return of the Nigerian Idol comes as its franchise has produced some of the biggest Nigerian singers such as Timi Dakolo, Mercy Chinwo, and Omawumi, all of whom made names for themselves in the global music scene.
