If you’ve enjoyed watching some of Nigeria’s top reality shows, you’ll be pleased to know that the Nigerian edition of popular reality show ‘The X-Factor’ will soon be hitting your screens.

The television music competition franchise is set to launch in Nigeria in a few months, according to insiders.

NET investigations have revealed that the brain behind this venture is none other than Rotimi Pedro, CEO of Optima Media Group (OMG). In 2011, OMG brought their first reality show franchise ‘Nigerian Idol’ (the local version of the Idol franchise), and in the following year, birthed the ‘Nigeria’s Got Talent’ show.

Insiders have confirmed ‘The X-Factor’ will be here pretty soon, but other details like the show’s judges and host, have not been decided. It is also uncertain which brand is picking the bills.

The TV series was created by popular TV producer Simon Cowell in 2004. It originated in the United Kingdom.

X-Factor has been adapted for numerous international versions in over 40 countries, including the US, China, Australia, Czech Republic and Colombia.
