Nigerians have been waiting for the announcement of the auditioning dates for the next edition since the launch of the 2019 edition of the series. Sometime around March it was expected to continue but was postponed indefinitely due to the ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
The 2019 edition was won by Mercy Eke, who as the 1st female winner of the most successful reality TV show in Africa has since achieved giant strides.
