Popular music star D’banj has opened up on how he got the shot to be one of the judges on the Nigerian idol show.
Recall that D’banj, Simi, and others were unveiled as judges for the seventh season of Nigerian Idol by its organisers in January.
During his introduction, the ‘Kokomaster’ expressed his excitement at being one of the judges this season.
He said: “I was out of the country when I found out that I was going to be a judge for this season of Nigerian Idol, and I couldn’t contain my excitement. I’m coming in with my strategy, so viewers should expect a bang.”
In a new video that recently surfaced on the internet, the “Fall in Love” singer was having chitchat with his colleague Omawumi about popular Abuja-based pastor, Jerry Eze in an episode of the ongoing music reality TV.
Omawunmi quite amazed asked D’banj to explain how he got to know the clergyman.
She asked: How did you get to know Pastor Jerry? NSDPP! I know that everybody will know, ‘what God cannot do does not exist,’ but how did you know Pastor Jerry.
In his response, the 41-year-old entertainer revealed he has a great rapport with the pastor as they prayed and fasted for him to be on the show.
D’banj said: “Listen, I don’t miss it, that’s my church. Oh my God! I’ve got him on speed dial. How did you think I got this show? We fasted!
“Then they called me the next day, “Oh! We wanna book you for a show. We want you to be a judge. Then I said, “Ah! What God cannot do does not exist.”
