Nigerian Idol Season 9 was bound to get a lot more exciting with the addition of Omawumi as a judge, and she has not disappointed us! Known for her powerful vocals and magnetic stage presence, Omawumi brings her industry knowledge, soulful flair, and not to mention her impeccable style, to the esteemed panel. And let’s be honest, while Omawumi’s style has been setting the bar high, we can’t ignore the fact that the judges, including Ric Hassani and 9ice, bring their A-game in terms of style each week.

Seventeen years ago, Omawumi captivated audiences as the first runner-up in the inaugural season of Idols West Africa. Now, she returns to the stage that launched her career, ready to inspire and mentor the next generation of musical talents.

Now I get to be a part of those making the dreams of others who were like me come true. Listen! It may take a while, but if you are good at what you do and you work hard at it, your beans must cook! The second slide is me as a contestant 17 years ago!” she tweeted, sharing a nostalgic throwback photo from her contestant days.

From her debut single “In the Music” to timeless hits like “If You Ask Me,” Omawumi’s journey is a testament to the power of perseverance and passion. As she continues to guide these talents as a judge, Omawumi is set to leave an indelible mark on Nigerian Idol, proving that dreams do come true.
