Posted on Updated on

From MetroNaija. “Over a year after winning the second season of
Nigerian Idol, singer Mecry Chinwo is yet to be given
her N7.5m recording contract.
‘As I speak to you, I’m one-man standing. I am not
in any record label, I am alone. I have to say the
truth. I am not or was never tied to nay record label‘,
the Port Harcourt-born singer toldEncomium
Weekly last week. She however confirmed receiving
the N7.5m cash prize.
Franchise owners of Nigerian Idol, Optima Media
Group(OMG) had announced that the winner of the
talent show would go home with the overall prize of
a recording contract, an SUV and a mouth-watering
cash of prize of $100,000 (N7.5m).
The show was sponsored by Etisalat and Pepsi.
NET could not establish contact with OMG as a rep
for the media company refused to pick our phone
calls and reply text messages.
Mercy’s case isn’t the same withseason three
winner Moses Obi-Adigwewho says everything OMG
promised has been delivered.‘Yes I got the money
and my contract, everything is okay‘, Moses told
Nigerian Entertainment Today in a telephone chat.
The singer says he has received his N7.5m cash
prize and has released three new singles.
Apparently, Moses’recording contract is with OMG
who recently setup their own label. Moses says he is
more relaxed working with OMG than any other
label as they would have time for him.”
