After thrilling audiences with audition clips held in Enugu and Owerri, the People’s Hero live show will finally begin tomorrow, Saturday, November 16.

Only 20 contestants out of the 2,000 hopefuls that auditioned for a spot in the limelight made it to the live show. The next couple of weeks will see the contestants vying for the winning prize of N7 million.

Assuring Nigerians of thrilling moments, one of the judges and a popular music artiste, Illbliss, said the judges were extremely meticulous in ensuring that only the best among many good talents that showed up at the auditions made it to the league of Heroes. According to him, selecting 20 contestants was not an easy task. He said the judges were aware of the qualities of show and were as such guided in selecting these final contestants.
