It was indeed a night to remember. While it marked the end of the journey for some, it spelt the beginning of one for Nancy who won her way in to the Academy via the Wild Card contest.
Before announcing the Wild Card winner, the fourteen contestants in the Academy stepped out in style to perform a medley of some Nigerian hits in honour of the music legends who really rocked in their lifetime. They include Nico Mbarga, Christy Essien Igbokwe, Sunny Okosun, and Fatai Rolling Dollar. This performance received a loud ovation from the audience as they swayed from one song to the other effortlessly.
After choosing Nancy as the Wild Card contest winner, the contestants on probation took the stage one after the other repeating the songs that landed them on probation. And they all obviously improved on their performances.
Getting to the moment of truth, Olawale was saved by the viewers, Blessing found favour in the sight of the faculty and Johnnygot most of the contestants not on probation on his side. Leaving Gbemisola and Henry as eliminated contestants.
Asking how they felt about their elimination, they both appreciated God for making them come this far and appreciated their fans for all the support they enjoyed while in the competition. They promised to work on what they’ve been taught in the Academy.
So, with thirteen contestants now left in the Academy, don’t miss tomorrow’s show as they treat us to beautiful R&B tunes.
