Talented Nigerian singer and songwriter Victory Gbakara has won the eighth edition of the Nigerian Idol singing competition.

After eight weeks of thrilling performances and highly competitive episodes, Victory beat his fellow top-two finalist and first runner-up, Precious Mac, to win the coveted grand prize that includes N35 million in cash, a brand new SUV, one Bigi Refrigerator and one year’s supply of Bigi soft drink, an all-expense paid trip courtesy of Tecno, a music record deal by a reputable label that will include a video shoot, one year’s supply of WAW detergent, and a fully installed DStv Explora with one year of Premium subscription.

Victory thanked his fans for their votes and immense support throughout the show. He said, “I can’t contain my joy. I am so happy, guys. This journey has been a life-changing experience, and it would not have been possible without the support and love of my family, friends, and especially my incredible fans.”
