Winning the sixth season of Nigerian Idol would’ve made 24-year-old Kingdom Kroseide ecstatic.
Getting a scholarship from his state’s governor would’ve sent him over the moon.
The Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri has now announced an educational scholarship for the talented singer. Governor Diri made the announcement at the Government House, Yenagoa on Friday as he received Kingdom and his team.
The Governor also appointed Kingdom as a Youth Ambassador in the state.
The Governor also added that his government would now bear the responsibility of his education at the Federal University, Otuoke, where he is a student. In addition, if he chooses to go one up and get a Masters degree, the state would also cover it.
