With all 6 contestants bringing their A-Game on Nigeria’s first TV music game show over the weekend, the 101- jury members certainly had a tough time judging all equally power packed duel rounds from contestants aiming for a coveted spot at the semifinals.
Contestants Oribhabor Amen, Joseph Udem, Salam Sadiq, Ifeoluwa Adediran, Nonso Iwuchukwu and Naomi Mac brought all their A-game in heated duels leaving sultry singer Naomi Mac to wear the crown sailing all the way to the semi finals.
23-year-old Naomi Mac who describes herself as a product of grace, delivered a vocally flawless rendition of All The Man I Need by Whitney Houston and went on to win the episode by taking jury members down memory lane with Agolo by Angelique Kidjo securing her own spot at the semifinals.
The contestants ably represented Nigerian artistes like Flavour, Omawunmi, Wande Coal and others as they went indigenous in a bid to impress the 101-jury members for a shot at the mouth watering grand prize.
The final round of the episode proved a tough decision to crack as both contestants Naomi and Ifeoluwa pushed their vocal chords in a heated duel. However, Ifeoluwa made the smartest decision to walk away with 400,000 naira when it was apparent that she did not win the round.
Winning the episode brings amazingly vocally talented Naomi Mac closer to 10million naira and a brand new car joining Philip, Brenda, Happiness and Rhema in the semi final round.
