COLOURFUL REGGAE NIGHT
The nomination show for the 3rd week was lighted up as Ghanaian Reggae sensation, Batman Samini, Rumba stylee crooner, Ras kimono and Orits Wiliki were among the specially invited guests for the night, their presence in the studio added colour to the show, it was really a night of glitz as the contestants came out one after the other to perform classic reggae songs to the delight of the impatient studio audience.
Ochuko sparked off the night on a bright note with an electrifying rendition of “rock me baby”. Samini who was also an invited judge was quick to say his performance was a project fame version of the song, Christian followed up with a classic performance of Bob Marley’s “I shot the Sheriff” and got a standing ovation from the audience. Jocelia came up and did her thing while Monica had a nice performance but with poor vocal delivery.
Performances continued for the night with Modele as she sang “rat race” by The Mandators, Eyo’s rendition of Ras Kimono’s “Rumba Stylee” was greeted with a thunderous applause from the audience. Small But mighty Chidinma performed “knock me off my feet” by Mighty Diamonds and she got the judges rolling on their seats as they sang along with her, Helen performed after her and vivacious Rhoda came up on stage with a beautiful rendition of “Mama Africa”. Vwede performed wonderfully well to justify his presence in the academy.
Samuel took to the stage and he sang “don’t turn it off”, although, he had a poor start but ended his performance with an electrifying finishing. Adebola did “I wanna wake up with you”, Shehu’s performance was however not on point, Kesse performed “ land of our birth” by Eric Donaldson and his performance was rated as one of the best for the night. Yetunde ended performances for the night with a rendition of “I need a roof” by Mighty Diamonds. Contestants to go on probation for the following week will be determined by votes across West Africa. The night ended with a closing performance by the Ghanaian wave-making Reggae sensation Batman Samini.
