At the end of proceedings, Brend, Tama Nisa and Nex2 emerged victorious, but not without some displeasure from the judges over Nex2’s qualification. He had been dubbed the ‘worst performer’ from the pack. Tama Nisa however, pulled out of the competition on health grounds, and was subsequently replaced by Classic Tunez who had to prove his mettle after returning to the show on the Judges Wild Card platform.
