Nigeria: Naija Sings Season 2 Begins

Lagos — Auditions for second season of M-Net's Naija Sings kicked off on Thursday at M-Net Studio, Ojota, Lagos. The audition, which started in Lagos State and is scheduled to also run in other selected states of the federation will also end in Lagos, attracted many vibrant young people who wanted to pitch their stake in the competition.

Speaking with some of the participants, it was discovered that most of them are in high spirit and ready for whatever the competition brings their way but cannot predict if they would be one of the few that would be picked.

Ndubuka Chikeremma, a graduate of mass communication from Abia State University who was among the first set to be auditioned said she felt butterflies in her stomach facing the crowd but had to pull herself together in other to deliver her best.

She explained that her being in the competition has nothing to do with fame but a lot to do with her love for singing and a wish for her voice to be heard.

"Music is what I live for and I think it is time for my voice to be heard. The fame and the money comes after these inspirations," she said

Another participant, a graduate of political science from University of Benin, Oghenejode Auree, on the other hand stated that the unemployment situation of the country is one of the key things that brought her into the contest. That not withstanding she is convinced that what she has to offer cannot let her down for she has worked hard to get this far.

States like Edo, Enugu, Rivers, Cross Rivers, Kano and Abuja would soon have a feel of the same audition, which began in Lagos.
