Elimination Show 5
As the days go by and the competition to remain in the house gets stiffer, so have the contestants continued to get better with their vocal prowess and stage performances perhaps due to the knowledge of what they have at stake.
The contestants opened the night with an electrifying performance in honour of late legendary Afro beat maestro Fela Anikulapo Kuti. The group performance of Fela’s songs was an interesting blend of different vocal strengths to provide a superb rendition.
After the group performance, it was time to know the set of contestants that got the highest set of votes from viewers of the show. The contestants that emerged with the highest number of votes were Deinde, Anderson, Ada, Jeff leaving out Chike, Arewa, Pearl, Kumi, Oluchi, and Joy with the lowest votes.
The six contestants with the lowest viewers’ votes then stepped on stage to perform once again in hopes that they would be able to escape elimination. After their performances, Shola from the season 7 edition stepped on stage to perform his hit single “Amin” to the delight of the audience.
Then came the time for the Judges, Faculty, and the contestants to save one each from the six contestants. The Judges saved Arewa, the Faculty chose Pearl, while the contestants’ votes ended in a tie once again. It was then decided that the tie should be broken by the contestant with the highest number of viewers votes and the onus then fell on Ada to do so. She decided to save Kumi, which sadly meant that Chike, Oluchi, and Joy had come to the end of their time in the competition.
The trio then took out time to perform for the last time in the competition with Chike performing ‘Suddenly’ by D’Banj, Joy- ‘Irawo’ by Seyi Shay, and Oluchi- ‘Bimpe’ by Asa.
