After much speculations the host and judges for X-factor Africa have finally been unveiled and it included the founder of Hiplife, Reggie Rockstone. The other judges will include M.I and Onyeka Onwenu and the host will be Toolz. Two rappers and a singer to judge a singing competition? HMMM. Meanwhile, auditions are ongoing in Nigeria and a 68 year old grandma, Mrs Evelyn D. Lawson, from Bogeme in Rivers State, had auditioned.
Mrs Lawson came to the stage as the third contestant. The elderly woman who was supported by her two sons wonderfully sang the ‘Glory be to God’ song and got three “yeses” to go through to the next round. The judges and the audience were impressed with her performance and her courage to still sing at the age of 68.
