By Aduragbemi Omiyale
The Nigerian Idol Seasons 6 and 7 winners, Kingdom and Progress, respectively, put smiles on the faces of Bigi drinks consumers in Lagos last weekend.
They were at the Ikeja City Shopping Mall for Father’s Day and did not disappoint as they rendered songs that further endeared them to the hearts of their fans.
The event, which witnessed hundreds of spectators, was organised to give the consumers as well as fans the opportunity to connect with their most cherished Nigerian Idol season 6 and season 7 winners.
The atmosphere became charged as the rising star and Nigerian Idol season 6 winner, Kingdom Kroseide, who has been praised for his unique vocal sound, energetic live performances, and crowd interaction, started performing his debut single, My Father’s Got It All, which ended up beckoning the attention of fans and consumers of the Bigi drinks.
In a chit-chat with newsmen after his performance, Kingdom commended Bigi brand for taking entertainment to greater heights through viable platforms like Nigerian Idol.
Teaming up, the highly talented music singer and songwriter, Progress, who has been enjoying wide and massive love and attention from everyone – both on social media and over the internet upon winning the Nigerian Idol last edition, beautify the shopping mall with a masterpiece performance of Lift Me Up by multiple Grammy Awards winner, Rihanna.
Speaking at the event, the Assistant Brand Manager of Bigi drink, Ms Biola Aransiola, said, “We wanted to do something distinct to honour fathers on their special day as we know that fathers play an important role in their families, yet are the least celebrated, and considering footfalls, the venue is mostly the choice of fathers to hang out with their loved ones to relax, unwind and have fun in a distinctive way.”
She further added that “We believe Nigerians are blessed with raw talents, most especially in the area of music creation, and bringing those we’ve been able to accompany to the limelight closer to interact with the general public is a form of motivation to those who desire to live up to their dreams.”
On his part, Progress expressed satisfaction with the flash mob and applauded Bigi Drinks for organizing such an event.
“I’m a product of Bigi, a brand ambassador, and so delighted to have the brand going all out for young people like me, to help unlock creativity and launch into full potential, especially in the entertainment industry,” he stated.
Responding to the reception of the crowd, Kingdom said the cheers of fans and consumers who showed up from nowhere elated him.
“To be honest, I’m intrigued by the large crowd, and I want to use this medium to commend Bigi Drinks for availing this platform to receive much love from Nigerian, most especially on Father’s Day,” the budding singer said.
