History was made in Africa last weekend when the first ever audition of the world’s biggest TV reality show, X-Factor kicked off on the continent with a big bang.
The auditions were held at Presidential Hotel, Aba Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers state from Saturday April 13, to Sunday, April 14, 2013. Hundreds of enthusiastic youngsters trooped out to fight for wealth and fame on the continent’s largest singing competition platform. The show was brought to Africa for the first time by leading telecommunications company, Globacom.
As early as 7.30 am, over 200 participants, some of whom kept vigil at the venue to beat the anticipated early morning rush, had gathered at the venue of the auditions. By midday, over 600 participants had registered and had been accredited to participate.
Some of the participants traveled from Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Edo states to try their chances of winning the unprecedented prize money of N24 million and a recording contract with Sony Music international.

Globacom’s Head of Reality Shows, Mr. Sulyman Bello, said that the next round of auditions would take place next week in Abuja followed by Kumasi and Accra in Ghana, before the train comes back to Lagos, where the boot camp and the grand finale will take place.
