Get ready to be swept off your feet by Nigerian hitmakers Johnny Drille and Korede Bello during the Live Show.
Nigerian heartthrob singer and songwriter Korede Bello needs no introduction to the Big Brother Naija universe. Bello took the world by storm with his 2015 semi-gospel and pop hit single ‘Godwin’ that has reached national anthem status. Bello started singing at age seven, performing under the stage name African Prince and it is during his high school days that he released a first single ‘Forever’. With over a decade of award-winning songs such as ‘Do Like That’ and collaborations such as ‘My People’ with Lil Kesh, the 22-year old crooner has amassed a huge following of fans from all corners of the world, whom he affectionately named ‘Bellovers’.
John Ighodaro, whose stage name is Johnny Drille in a self-taught folk singer, songwriter, producer, and sound engineer. Johnny Drille draws his inspiration from international folk artists such as the American band Mumford & Sons, Owl City, Phillip Phillips, Passenger, Jon Bellion, Laura Mvula, Cobhams Asuquo. As one of the few Nigerian artists who has chosen to develop the folk sound popular with Christian circles, Johnny Drille had first tried his hand at other styles including highlife, hip-hop, and even afro-pop. The contestant of the 2013 MTN Project Fame Academy broke into the musical scene with his rendition of Di’ja’s ‘Awww’, and has since consolidated his folksy love genre with hits like ‘Love Don’t Lie’, ‘Wait For Me’ or ‘My Beautiful Love’.
The two artists are signed with the Nigerian house Mavin Records, one of the biggest record labels in Africa.
