The moment we all waited for finally came…. The winner of the second season of Naija Sings was announced after some awesome guest performances and duets from Maye Hunta, Bez, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, P-square to last year’s winner John Ogah.
27-year old Lagos resident Casey was announced as the second Glo Naija Sings winner on Sunday (5 Dec).
The finalists performed three songs each… they all did a song with Tosin Martins and the rest of the Top10.
Da Brodas did their own song and “Holla @ your boy” with Wizkid.
Casey performed his single “be my first lady” and a collab with Bez.
Rasine the “Runner Up” did her own song and “Kele Kele” with Tiwa Sivage.
At the end of a spectacular grand finale in which he performed alongside resident judge Tosin Martins and soul-folk singer Bez, Casey beat out Da Brodas and Rasine to take the $100 000 cash prize, a Toyota Rav 4 and a Glo Ambassadorship.
After the show he told the press: “I had won in many stages prior to this time; I had competed against myself; I got out of my comfort zone by performing songs by Fela with my R ‘n’B style; I had to conquer that phobia.”
He added; “I intend to invest with the money and get back to school and take care of my family. I want to learn something in a music school. I just don’t want to win this money and disappear into thin air. I want to do something big in music.”
Here is his thanks to everyone that voted for him!
