The new season of Glo Naija Sings is heating up!
Only 7 contestants are left in the competition and as the weeks go by, each contestant seems to be stepping up their game.
The theme of Sunday’s show was ‘Favourite Bands’, so all the contestants chose one song by their favourite duo or group and performed for the Glo Naija Sings audience.
Before the performances began, the elimination took place – Shedrack was sent home as he had the lowest number of viewer votes last week.
The performances kicked off with Rasine. Rasine was rocking a pair of red leggings paired with a black and gold top with trimmings. She sang Westlife’s version of “You Raise Me Up”.
Up next were Da Brodas. The duo performed K-Ci & Jojo’s All My Life. Their performance was well received by the audience. Boma looked pretty in a knee-length draped blue dress and she sang “Stand Up For Love” by Destiny’s Child. Not sure if it was the song choice or Boma, but this was one of our favourites that night.
Casey went for classic RnB and performed Shai’s “If I Ever Fall In Love”. Peace delivered a serene performance of Boyz II Men’s hit song “On Bended Knee” while Najite picked up the tempo when she sang En Vogue’s “Don’t Let Go” – her performance got the crowd quite excited as illustrated by one audience member’s comment – “Najite, your energy performance was just intact“. The audience comments on Glo Naija Sings deserve their own show!
Ekeng closed the show with his rendition of Lighthouse Family’s “High”. Ekeng is one of our favourites on Glo Naija Sings and this is one of our favourite songs, but the rearrangement of the track did not work well.
