It was an exciting finale of a thrilling competition. As we sat glued to our TV screens on Sunday night, 27 year old Casey from Warri in Delta State was announced as the winner of the second season of Glo Naija Sings.

The finale was definitely interesting to watch. Superstar Nigerian musicians P-Square lit up the stage with their performance of their hits “E No Easy” and “I Love You”. The audience was singing and dancing along with the duo as they figuratively tore up the stage. “Ekaette” singer, Maye Hunta also performed to the delight of the Glo Naija Sings audience. Naija Sings Season I winner Jon Ogah made a “comeback” to the Naija Sings stage as he performed his new single.

The final 3 acts, Da Brodas, Rasine and Casey all performed alongside upcoming Nigerian musicians. Casey performed “Zuchiya Daya” with neo-soul singer, Bez. Rasine performed “Kele Kele Love” with Tiwa Savage and Da Brodas hit the stage with Wizkid and performed “Holla At Your Boy“.

And then the moment they had all been waiting for, the winner was announced.

Casey

We wish Casey all the best and hope he makes the best of this opportunity. Casey’s prize includes a $100 000 cash prize, a Toyota Rav 4 and Glo Ambassadorship.
After he was declared to be the winner of the competition, Casey said “I intend to invest with the money and get back to school and take care of my family. I want to learn something in a music school. I just don’t want to win this money and disappear into thin air. I want to do something big in music.

Are you glad Casey won? Will he make an impact on the Nigerian music scene?

      Lol. I thought I was the only one to notice. The guy is a real flop. How come he won Naija sings? Casey wasnt my first choice but at least he’s talented and can actually sing and perform. Rasine would have turned out like John. A no talent finalist winning because of sentiments!

    Da brodas were the best most especially after I listened to their solo album yesterday, wished they won but all the same congrats to casey he also tried. Could have be sad if Rasine had won, she wasn’t as good as the other guys Peace was much better.

    Casey…an ordinary musician, with a superlative voice; but did you listen to his self-composed song…yak! To be a successful musician in najia…you got to be able to write & sing commercially viable song that the street can relate to, not an orchestral performance. All the same sha…congrats!

    As far as i am concerned the best guy won, i watched right from the auditions till the final and honestly casey has been consistent and good with his only low moment being when he took Felix liberty’s song ifeoma. Peace from the beginning was very shaky, it was during the Nigerian songs that she picked up but still was not so consistent, Rasine was over doing it, trying too hard. a Brodas, very good with harmonization but if we are really truthful looking at it critically, their Fela’s performance was not it and their final performance with wizkid showed, fast paced songs,were really going to test their ability to really flow together and harmonize properly. From my opinion the best man won. The 2nd edition of Naija sings is far better than the first and having a resident judge especially one as talented as Tosyn Martins really did a lot of good. Once more, congrats casey and do not disappear into thin air, add value to our music industry. Peace!

    my 3 favs were ekeng, casey and niniola (in that order) and then peace. just as well that casey got it. i agree with timma, though.

    GO CASEY GO CASEY GO, OOOP OOP! I love Da Brodas and I adored Ekeng, but let’s face it…voices like theirs are quite limited…even Darey di try sing a fast-paced song once in a while na! Da Brodas lost the plot completely with WhizKid, goes to show you not all songs can be harmonised. Casey, from the moment you crooned ‘My mind’s telling me Nooooo…’ , I knew I had found my personal winner. even the song with Bez was so awesome he actually lost Bez a couple of times! All in all, the Best Man won! Congratulations Darling, I’ll be watching out for your face on billboards…

    CASEY – You are a single with a soul. You brighten my day. Thank heavens you made. GloNaijaSings has finally made up for last year’s judgement/winner. Casey, my happiness is you will make Tosin, Olisa, GLO, your family and Nigeria proud.

    ha!!! Ummm… I think “da brodas” should have won,
    they sing and sound a lot better than the Casey dude!
    If all that was judged was talent,
    (not their ages or who is more capable of representing GLO) then the brothers should have won!
    Ohhh well, whoever said life was fair…lol
