Onyeka Onwenu attended the show and said this “Onwenu believes the contestants would sing from their inner beings if they performed in their languages. She says their languages will allow them to express all the locked nuances they possess. She clarifies that the contestant’s expressing themselves via their languages will not negate the essence of the show and the fact that the show is looking for a pop-star.”
THANK U ONYEKA! I wholeheartedly agree! I am tired on these same old songs! LOL…Ok if they don’t want to sing Nigerian songs, I wont even mind some modern hits like some Beyonce or something exciting.
