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, a music teacher, walks away with a recording deal of a six-track EP, with music video shoots for three of the songs, and over N50 million worth of prizes, which include a N30 million cash prize and a brand new SUV.
