The #TECNOOwnTheStage karaoke competition continued with glitz and glamour in what the show has come to be known for in the past few weeks since it graced our television screens. The show continued with only one of the co-hosts, Vimbai Mutinhiri taking the stage to welcome the audience and viewers.
She set the ball rolling by introducing the guest artist for the night in person of singer and songwriter, Harry Song. He did not the disappoint the audience as he gave a superb performance of his 2015 hit song ‘Reggae-Blues’ to the delight of everyone.
After his performance, it was straight to the business of the day and just before then, the audience and viewers were given a sneak preview of what the four remaining contestants plan to do if they walked away with the $25,000 prize money at the grand finale scheduled to take place on the 7th of February, 2016.
Nandy was forthright when she admitted she had no idea what she would do with the money, just as Sikin said she would use the money to get musical equipment such as a microphone and a mixer which would immensely help her blossoming musical career. Shapeera on her part said she would use the money to pay for studio time and get more of her songs out into the market.
Shapeera was the first person to take the stage and she didn’t disappoint as always as she gave a beautiful rendition of Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’. Her performance was closely followed by that of Nandy who also did well with her performance of Vanessa Mdee’s ‘Nobody’. Nandy’s performance got rave reviews from the judges with Yemi Alade explicitly referring to the fact that she loved that the Tanzanian was “fighting again.”
Pascal was next on stage and he gave a moving performance of Smith’s ‘Stay with Me’. The last performance for the day was by the Kenyan, Sikin and she also did well with her rendition of Zahara’s ‘Loliwe’.
For the second time running in the show and in a spirit reminiscent of the Christmas episode of the show, the judges gave all the contestants a second shot at redemption especially the two contestants that were adjudged to have been less impressive.
Sikin and Pascal were the least impressive and they had to take the stage again for a chance to remain in the competition by proving to the judges that they could turn things around. They did just enough to impress the judges and Yemi Alade announced that none of the contestants would be evicted on the night. This means that all four contestants are still in the race to take home the grand prize.
