Did you watch this Sunday’s show? Not to worry, we got it all covered….
Unfortunately Shedrack was the third contestant to exit the show based on last week’s vote… your votes!
The contestant that receives the least vote is eliminated at the start of the show each week. The Presenter Olisa Adibua started this Sunday’s show by dividing the contestants into two groups of four, one each to his left and right. He sent the group to his left backstage, telling them they were safe – leaving Shedrack, Najite, Casey (in the bottom half for the second consecutive week) and Boma pondering their fate. After a dramatic pause, Olisa said: “Goodbye Shedrack, you’re going home”. Asked for his final thoughts, Shedrack thanked his fans for voting for him, before departing the stage for the final time.
The theme for the Top 7 was “All-Time Favourites” and here is what you missed:
Westlife’s “You Raise Me Up”
Destiny Child’s “Stand Up For Love”
“If I Ever Fall In Love” by Shai
KCi & JoJo’s “All My life”
Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee”
En Vogue’s “Don’t Let Go”
“High” by Lighthouse
The guest judge for the Top 7 was Amaka, one of the singers in Girl Power Unleashed; a former member of rap crew The Thoroughbreds; she also collaborated with Mode 9ine. She’s also got 2 tracks out on radio in Nigeria at the moment, called “Diva” and “Unexplainable“. And of course the resident judge Tosin Martins was also present to give his opinion on the performances.
Watch what they had to say!
And if you didn’t get to watch it, here is what they said in few words:
This week’s guest judge Amaka was up first: “I’m so blown away – this is a tough one because I really don’t have any lowlights!” she said. “Casey and Boma, you were my high points and you were absolutely fabulous. If I had to comment on anyone’s shortcomings, there was a little strain in Rasine’s voice, but I’m sure that’s because you’re doing a lot of training. Peace had some diction problems, but I’m sure you’re working on that”.
Resident judge Tosin Martins, having been congratulated by Amaka for bringing some of Nigeria’s most talented singers to the stage, told the Top 7 that he thought they had all done a fantastic job. He praised Da Brodas for their tight harmonies and ability to perform equally well as show-openers and show-closers. “Tying with them, I’m going to put Boma in there – you had the toughest run-up to tonight and your strength was clearly revealed. I’ve never heard you that strong,” he said. He said he didn’t have a particular lowlight, but warned Ekeng against playing it too safe and said that Peace hadn’t had her best night.
Anyways, that’s their opinions and I hope you vote because that’s how to voice yours! As the power to choose Nigeria’s favourite singer is in the hands of the viewers!
