Charly Boy Kicked Off Nigerian Idol? As Femi Kuti Becomes The Third Judge

The days of eccentric Charly Boy Oputa as a judge on popular reality TV franchise, Nigerian Idol seems to be numbered as organizers of the show have unvealed multi talented Afro beat maestro Femi Kuti as the third judge for this year's show.

‘We keep bringing in new twists and turns to make the show more interesting, two brand new cities made the audition train and most exciting is our own living legend, three-time Grammy nominee and Afrobeat king Femi Kuti as one of our  judges, Tiwa Medubi said in a statement while unveiling the three-time Grammy Award nominee today.

Jeffery Daniels and Yinka Davies have both been confirmed judges for the third season of the talent hunt, leaving  the fate of the self professed 'Area Fada' as a judge, hanging in the air.

If Charly Boy does not make the list of judges for this season, i'd be damned if it has nothing to do with the spate of controversies (unfavorable ones at that) that has become his hallmark in recent times.
