Progress has trumped over Zadok to win the 2022 Nigerian Idol, the local version of the Idol series franchise.


His victory comes a week after he scaled through to the final with Zadok, following the elimination of Banty, the female sonorous singer.

Progress, who was conservative from the start of the show, took a more liberal turn at the last 7 stage when he delivered ‘Bang Bang’ a song by Ariana Grande and Jessie J.

His victory was announced shortly after an exhilarating performance from Pheelz, the record producer turned singer.


The judges — including Simi, Obi Asika, and D’banj — also performed their hearts out for an excited live audience.

Progress will go home with a cash prize of N30 million, a brand new SUV, a Bigi-branded refrigerator, and a year’s supply of Bigi drinks.

He will also get to record an EP and a music video, a weekend getaway from TravelBeta, and a DStv Explora fully installed with a 12-month premium subscription.
