THE 10 remaining contestants, after the exit of Nancy and Johnny last week, have continued to impress the public for votes, taking the contest to another level by doing cover songs and beautiful classics that have rocked the airwaves over time.
Omolayo started off with the cover of some of the world’s greatest hits, singing ‘I Wish’ by Lighthouse Family. Margaret performed ‘Nothing Compares to You’ by Third Day, Roland did ‘Gotham City’ by R. Kelly, Blessing performed ‘Superwoman’ by Karyn White, David sang ‘Let’s Stay Together’ by El Green, Niniola performed ‘You Still The One’ by Shania Twain, Jimoh did ‘I Swear’ by All For One, Immaculate performed ‘If I Aint Got You’ by Alicia Keys, Simon did ‘Please Forgive Me’ by Brian Adams, while Olawale performed ‘Beautiful’ by Asa.
And just to take the entertainment to another level, the contestants also went on an adventure of classic duets, with Immaculate and Jimoh kicking off the session with ‘I’m Your Angel’ by Celine Dion and R.Kelly, even as David and Margaret performed ‘Beneath You’re Beautiful’ by Labrinth and Emeli Sande. Olawale and Niniola also thrilled the crowd, singing ‘Street Corner’ by Ashford, while Blessing and Simon serenaded all with ‘Endless Love’ by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. And from Roland and Omolayo, who rounded off the session, was ‘I’ll Take You There’ by Bebe and Cece.
Despite the beautiful renditions, the judges put all 10 contestants on probation, heightening the need by their fans to keep them going through public votes. Voters from Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone are expected to text their favourite contestants’ unique numbers to 306, while voters from Ghana are expected to text their favourite contestants’ unique numbers to 1745.
