Last week we saw the top twelve contestants battle in pairs. It was quite an intense and spectacular performance. Six contestants made it to the next phase, and six went on probation.
The six on probation – eMzez, TOMs, Denerio, Skyffy, MB Dre, and Jaydboy – performed solo songs in the last edition held on Sunday. After their electrifying performances, they left judges in a dilemma. Unfortunately, not all could make it to the next phase. Four were evicted.
“The decision for us was too tough,” ID Cabasa confessed. eMzez, Denerio, Skyffy and Jaydboy were evicted, however with one having the chance to return in the final episode via audience votes to compete for the ten-million-naira prize.
eMzez, a Guitarist and songwriter who performed Don’t Let Go was one of the finest musicians seen on the show, according to ID Cabasa.
“It’s interesting to see a young man who can do the Afrobeats vibes and still play the guitar well. He has so much in him but, unfortunately, was too careful with his performance. However, I hope you don’t let go and make it to the next stage,” ID Cabasa said. With two judges’ decisions against versus one for, eMzez was let go.
In the next episode, the contestants who scaled through last week will banter in solo performances for a place in the next round.
