Najite & Ekeng voted OUT! Glo Naija Sings – Only 5 Contestants left ‘singing’ – Who Will Win the Prize?



As the Sunday 16th November 2010 episode of Glo Naija Sings began, we had a feeling that something was awry.  The host Olisa Adibua was dressed in all black, a somber colour that matched the mood of the contestants who were jittery about the forthcoming double elimination. Olisa split the contestants into 2 groups – Boma, Ekeng and Najite in one and Rasine, Da Brodas, Casey and Peace in the other. Suddenly, he announced that Boma, Ekeng and Najite were indeed the bottom 3 – the contestants with the lowest number of viewer votes.

Olisa handed the results card to Boma to read, she read out the sad news. Ekeng and Najite had been voted out! It was a shock as Ekeng was one of the strongest contestants and has been an audience favorite since the beginning of the competition. Ekeng and Najite thanked their fans for all their support and Ekeng urged fans to look out for his first single which will be released in 2011. Best of luck guys!

Now back to the competition, the theme of the week was “Naija Classics“. Classic Nigerian hits that we all know and love. Check out the performances below. Our favourite of the night was Peace. She totally rocked the stage and ‘owned’ the song!’

The guest celebrity commentator of the night was Kenny St Brown and we also got some welcome surprises when we spotted superstar Glo ambassadors – Rita Dominic and Ini Edo in the audience! They even commented on some of the performances!

View all the performances below and don’t forget to vote for your favourites.

    Boma is going home, her performance was the least impressive. Rooting for the brothers and I love what peace did with rex lawson’s song she was amazing

    absolutely true,my sentiments exactly. Boma was such a Bore, Peace was amazing and so were the brothers. Casey’s good but i just discovered his weakness …local songs…

    I think I’ll start watching Naija Singsinstead of the silly X Factor that is clearly fixed.
