This energetic go-getter currently works as an administrative officer at a studio in Lagos. He has a passion for music and believes if you sing from the heart, you will communicate and connect with your audience. He is intent on making people feel how he feels through his songs.
Raised by his dad after his mum passed away, Emmanuel is the second child in a family of four and takes pride in the fact that he comes from a family of singers. Emmanuel says he entered Nigerian Idol so he can share his talent with the world.
|Full Name||Emmanuel Elijah|
|Place of Birth||Lagos|
This cheerful and talented singer had his eyes set on making it into the Nigerian Idol Top 11 list, but after watching every member of his group get sent home during Theatre Week, the pressure began to set in.
But like the pro that he is, he brushed the pressure off his shoulders and delivered an amazing cover of Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’. As the battle gets intense in the coming weeks, can he deal with the pressures to come?
