Nsikak Umoh a.k.a Bonic who made it to the top 30 at the on-going Nigerian Idol arrived Uyo this evening from Lagos via Akwa Ibom International Airport and will be hosted tomorrow, Friday for a ‘welcome back’ party.
The event tagged “Celebrating Nsikak Umoh” will hold at popular celebrity hang out, 2nd Baze from 7pm.
There will be a red-carpet which will be graced by celebrities and other guests. Nsikak is expected to perform while also using the opportunity to thank his fans for the support they showed him while he was at the reality TV show.
The show is packaged by top celebrity magazine – E101. Meanwhile, the magazine’s spokesman, Asteroid Bassey has opined on why the event is necessary.
“Nsikak Umoh did not win the top prize nor did he make it to the top 10 of the show but he has carved a niche for himself by making it to the last 30. Nsikak is a star in the making. Research has shown that top stars that make it in the music industry are not products of reality TV shows, only few are. Even in yankee, top music icons are not graduates of American Idol nor other music reality TV shows. 2face Idibia, D’banj, MI and plenty others are not products of reality TV shows. The show was determined by votes. It is rather unfortunate that he didn’t have enough votes to propel him to the zenith of the show but he has got great talent. We know he has a great future ahead of him that is why E101magazine is putting up this event to celebrate him”, said Asteroid who is the Associate Editor of the magazine.
It could be recalled that Nsikak was the only Akwa Ibom star who made it to the top 30 of the show but failed to make it to top 10 neither was he called back for the wild-card show by the judges which could have given him another opportunity to make it to the last ten.
