It is now down to the wire; the final 3 contestants of this season of Glo Naija Sings has emerged – 17 year old Rasine, 14 & 20 year old siblings – Da Brodas and 27 year old Casey. In a few days, one of these acts will win the grand prize. This week, Peace was voted out. She had been a strong contender, however, it appears as though her rendition of Fela’s songs during the last episode did not connect with the audience and voting public. Peace received the lowest number of viewer votes and has now exited the competition.
You can watch Peace’s “swan song” below;
Watch Peace perform Beyonce’s Dangerously in Love
One of these 3 talented contestants will walk away with the US$100 000 grand prize from M-Net, a fabulous Toyota Rav 4 from Glo and the opportunity to be a Glo Ambassador.
Top 3 – 1st Performance: Casey – A risky move as Casey takes on Tosin Martins’ “Olomi”
For his first performance, Casey decided to sing Tosin Martins’ hit single “Olomi”. Considering that Tosin Martins is the resident Naija Sings judge and was seating in the audience as he performed, it was definitely a gutsy move by Casey.
How did he do? His performance started off a bit shaky but once he got into the groove, he delivered a soulful yet ‘playful’ rendition of the song. You could tell he was enjoying himself as he performed and that is always a good thing to see from a performer. Thumbs up!
Top 3 – 2nd Performance: Casey – Casey “flies” with R Kelly
For his second performance of the night, Casey sang R Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly”, this is an immensely popular song in Nigeria so the audience was eager to hear how well Casey would deliver this! Once again, he did not disappoint. It was a strong and confident performance with an added bonus – Casey hit all the high notes of the song. We now see why Casey is a viewer favourite.
Top 3 – 1st Performance: Rasine – Rasine performs “Fire on the Mountain” by Asa for Africa
The first song that Rasine performed was Asa’s Fire on the Mountain. Considering the sky high standards set by Asa, this is not an easy song to perform. Rasine started off really well and delivered the verses strongly, however when it got to the chorus, it was obvious that she was trying to infuse emotion into her performance, however, it seemed like a lot of shouting rather than singing. Other than that, she did well.
Top 3 – 2nd Performance: Rasine – Is “everything gonna be alright” with Rasine’s version of Alicia Keys’ “No One”?
Rasine dedicated her second performance to “people in relationships and people in love”. She performed Alicia Keys’ “No One” and unfortunately, missed the mark. Her performance was passionate but at the expense of her vocals.
Top 3 – 1st Performance: Da Brodas – The Akohs take on 2Face’s massive “African Queen”
Wow! The contestants really pushed themselves to the max on this episode of Glo Naija Sings. Da Brodas performed 2Face’s African Queen and we have to give it to them. They delivered a solid performance. Their vocals were on point and the harmonies were spot on! The audience rewarded them with a loud round of applause.
Top 3 – 2nd Performance: Da Brodas – The Abuja boys perform their hero, Michael Jackson
Before we start, someone should tell us why one of Da Brodas was wearing an identical version of Dimeji Alara’s SMVA jacket? Who designed this piece? Please help, because we totally covet one!
Back to the music, Da Brodas performed Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone”. Once again, they sold their performance with their seamless harmonies. Though the performance had a few “pitchy” moments. They did well.
