Episode 9 of #TheVoiceNigeria started fiercely with Prime and Ralph from #TeamPatoranking taking the stage.
The duo seemed relaxed together but their performance appeared to be overshadowed by a subtle air of competition which could be noticed between them.
The duo however gave a magical performance of ‘Rude’ by Magic! To the delight of the coaches. Timi Dakolo voiced his approval by telling the duo to meet up and do an album together after the show. He went on to tell both of them that “the only thing you supposed dey sell for this world is your music. I’m saying it plain. Ralph, your falsetto is strong.” Their coach- Patoranking however chose to let Prime stay, which signalled the exit of Ralph.
The talents from Team 2baba were next in stage with Precious and Chiche performing ‘Kedike’ by Chidinma. The performance was lit and co-coach Darey said as much when he said “You guys came out here to deliver. You came out here to make it happen. You’ve made my problem bigger.”
At the end of the day however. 2baba chose to let Chiche go and stick with precious. But as Chiche headed for the backstage, Waje hit her button and stole her to the delight of the feisty lady who gave her a warm hug.
Talents from team Waje were next as Khemmie and Joxy Jeb sang Adele’s ‘Set Fire To The Rain’. At the end of their performance, Waje chose to go with Khemmie.
Next on stage was Armstrong and Viveeyan from Team Timi and they gave a good account of themselves with top notch stage chemistry.
Coach Timi however opted to go with Armstrong while sending out a plea to one of the coaches to steal Viveeyan. 2baba heeded his call and stole her almost immediately!
Team Patoranking were next on stage as the duo of Linda and Ikechukwu performed Kiss Daniel’s hit song ‘Laye’. The duo had great synergy during their performance and Timi said as much.
Patoranking opted for Vivian at the end of their performance.
The duo of Theodora and Oni Roxy from Team 2baba drew the curtain on the night with a good delivery of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’.
The judges were impressed with their craft but 2baba ended up choosing Theodora which made her the sixteenth talent that will make it to the live shows happening this month.
At the end of episode 9, #Team2baba and #TeamWaje had a steal each which means that 2baba has used up his steals. The winners from this episode are Prime, Precious, Chiche (stolen by Waje), Khemmie, Armstrong, Viveeyan (stolen by 2baba), Linda and Theodora.
