The Auditions moved from Makurdi to Enugu, Benin and then Lagos, practically setting the four locations aflame. Indeed, the four states practically came alive following the visit of Star Quest.
For the aspiring contestants that turned up, this was no ordinary audition. To scale past this stage would guarantee each of the aspirants a shot at the grand auditions. Should they make it past the grand auditions, they would move into Star FameLand for the competition proper. Exciting prices like a N7.5m recording contract, N3.6m, a brand new SUV amongst others beckoned the winning band. There would also be a unique opportunity for the winning band to perform at Star Sponsored activations. No wonder, mammoth crowds thronged the auditions in the four states to try out for the event.
Festival of talents
If there was any doubt that Star Quest belonged to the exclusive list of top rated talent hunt competitions in the country, the regional auditions dispelled that notion. The array of talents that stormed the audition venues, especially in Benin and Lagos, bore testimony of Star Quest’s popularity amongst wannabe superstars in the country. The quality of the contestants in this year's edition certainly made it hard for the celebrity judges comprising Paul 'play' Dairo, KC and Waje. "I don't think that we would be any problem replacing M.I, D Banj and other top music stars with the array of talents that I’ve seen so far," Paul ‘Play’ Dairo said during the auditions in Lagos. He should know. A top rated artiste and one of the leading producers in the country, Paul ‘Play’ Dairo’s verdict should not be taken lightly. Romeo Okudike, , an Imo State born 22- year -old proved Paul ‘Play’ right. He practically tore the Lagos State auditions apart with his rap routine. Romeo impressed Paul Play and KC so much that he received a heart warming hug from the duo. Waje was no less impressed. The sultry singer gladly offered her cheek for a peck from the aspiring rapper. Of course, he got an overwhelming yes vote from the three judges. There were other dazzling performances too that swept the audience off their feet, or their seats, to be more precise. In fact, Waje wept during the Benin and Lagos auditions. Interestingly, on both occasions, the Edo State born singer’s tears were caused by female contestants.
