With his new title as Nigerian Idol, Progress takes home the grand cash prize of ₦30 million, a brand new SUV, a Bigi branded refrigerator and a year’s supply of Bigi drinks.
He will also get to record an EP and a music video, a weekend getaway from TravelBeta, and a DStv Explora fully installed with a 12 months premium subscription.

Weeks after getting the golden ticket and making it to the Top 12, Progress evolved from the ‘church boy’ persona to a true entertainer.

The evening kicked off with a joint performance from the host, judges, and the top 12 idols.

Zadok performed Whitney Houston’s hit song, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ next to a rousing audience. This was followed by D’Banj’s performance, a medley of some of his latest songs.

Progress’s electrifying delivery of Ariana Grande’s ‘Bang Bang’ came next, followed by Simi, who performed her hit single, ‘Duduke’.

The evicted 10 of the top 12 again mounted the stage with Season 6 winner, Kingdom Kroseide to perform his new song ‘Father’s Got It All’.

Pheelz performed next the trending song, ‘Finesse’.

The battling duo next performed a song with D’Banj and written by D’Banj, who said he wrote the song at a trying time in his life and he wanted the two Idols to tap into that prayer. The song is titled ‘I Got My Answer’.
