Rapper M.I picked as X Factor Africa judge. Toolz as presenter

It hasn't been officially announced...but I got the exclusive gist from inside sources. M.I was picked as a judge of the singing reality TV show over the likes of 2face Idibia, Sammy Okposo, Dare Art Alade, Obi Asika, Don Jazzy, Bantu, eLDee, and Cobhams who were all approached and negotiated.

Beat FM On-Air-Personality Toolz was picked as the Glo X Factor presenter over Michelle Dede, Mo Abebe, Isio Wanogho, Matilda Obaseki, Ebuka Obi Uchendu and Femi Branch.

The other judge joining M.I is Ghanaian rapper, Reggie Rockstone. The last judge being talked to is the elegant stallion herself, Onyeka Onwenu...but nothing has been confirmed. Will keep you guys updated. Remember, you read this here first! :-)

Would have preferred to see Isio or Emeka hosting.
And i really hope this show is of quality because they have Nigerian idol, Naija sings, MTN, project fame. All these shows that are operating on half current like NEPA. haha

Prince Charming I wonder where that name is coming from. You sure are an idiot for saying M.I is better than the likes of 2face, Eldee and the rest mentioned. If you got nothing to say just shut that blouse mouth of yours.

lmaoo. Two rappers as judges on a singing competition?! how now!?

Anonymous said...

Woooooow prince charming u sure make sense on this one.I am a fan of d x-factor hit.If d gist is true as Linda reported,then MI is so on point.2face is not a good judge at all.I hv watched him on MTN's project fame,he appeared as a guest jugde some couple of times.He hesitates a lot,don't get d right statemnts for d contestants and seemed lost thruout.Guess rhyming words on mic and doing d ladies is wat he is best at.Then for Dare Art,hosting will be a better role 4 him.Don jazzy,hmmmmmmm handling a superstar is wat he does best,not judging new talents.MI and Toolz r just on point 4 dis.wish dem all d best.

Foul language is the fortress of the weak, so keep at it ok? It just defines what kind of a person that you are.

I have my opinion on issues, just as you have yours, and so does everyone else, be contended with yours and let me air mine. Upgrade your brain cell pls, it will help you.

Linda i might be naive but biko tuface and mi who is well grounded in music m.i is a rapper and tuface is a singer he writes and interprets music scores he reads notes and bars he knows a lot about vocals he has been there and he has done it he has gotten the experience in music i am a just saying o tubaba would have been a better judge and he would have made the competition very lively with his mannerism and talk m.i is a little bit stuck up he is too serious any how lets c how it goes and as for Reggie rock stone dude is the bomb he is well grounded in music he does reggae and r and b

Can't wait for the auditions to kick start. Nice work Linda. Keep it up.

m.i is easily the most sensible choice. Brilliant as they are in their respective fields as producer/singer, im not sure tuface.don jazzy etc could have managed to articulate their thoughts on the show in the way M.I promises. Lets wait and see sha.

Sonme people just take pride in using foul languages,just 4 no reason. Good morals seem to be missing.

A long way we got to free ourselves from this mental slavery. These companies will never spend huge sums on educational development but keep pumping billions in entertainment. No wonder the entertainment scene is mediocre in high velocity......SMH for the youths in his country.

@ Anonymous April 15, 2013 at 2:13 PM - You should be the one to shut up! Did Prince Charming disparage Eldee or 2Face? He simple said in his opinion that M.I. is heads above them, what is the problem? This is a free world. You can like Eldee and 2Face and any other person which is your right but you can't go about telling people to shut up because they don't agree with you. It is sign of intelligence to be able to hear out a differing opinion without feeling threatened by it.
