Victory for Christian! Talented 35 Year Old Singer/Comedian wins Glo Naija Sings 3 – $100,000 & a brand New Rav 4!

Published

The third season of Glo Naija Sings wrapped up last night!

The “Number 3” played a significant role in the proceedings…
First up, this is Season three of the show, then, there were three finalists – Vicky, Christian and Mattade. Each finalist performed three times during the show.

For their first performance, each finalist performed their favourite song from the competition and then they performed duets with Nigerian music stars. Finally, each contestant showed off their songwriting skills by each performing an original song which will serve as the winner’s first single.

At the end of the show, Christian was announced as the winner of Season 3 of Glo Naija Sings!
Before his name was announced, we had an inkling that he would win, we’ll take you through the Glo Naija Sings 3 finale journey and tell you why…

The finale show kicked off with a performance by Onyeka Onwenu who has been a judge for the most part of this season of the show. The Top 10 contestants sang along with the “Elegant Stallion” as she performed her hit “One Love”. It was a refreshing and positive way to start the show.

Next up with Vicky who sang her favorite song from the show, Asa’s “360”. After Vicky, Christian hit the stage as her performed “Abosede”, finally Mattade did his thing by performing “Take a Look at Me Now” – a popular pop song which was originally by Phil Collins by has been covered by Mariah Carey and Westlife.

There was lots of starpower on the Glo Naija Sings Step Up stage. Omawumi who got her big break on a music reality show performed a jazzy rendition of her socially conscious hit “If You Ask Me“. Omawumi and her band totally ruled the stage! The star was dressed in a modern mini version of Iro ati Bubu popularly known as Oleku. Omawumi received a standing ovation from the audience.

We really enjoyed the next segment which included performances by the Top 3 finalists alongside Nigerian music stars. Vicky performed “Ko Ma Roll” with Mo’Cheddah, Christian sang “Back When” with Davido and Mattade delivered “Gbon Gbon” with Jaywon.

There was another star-infused musical interlude as Glo Naija Sings host Darey performed on stage with a bevy of sexy ladies. Darey performed a sultry rendition of his hit “The Way You Are“.

Glo Naijs Sings season 2 winner Casey Edema performed his brand new single “Not The Girl”. According to Casey, the video for the song will be released soon.

Finally, the big test!

The finalists all performed a song they had written and composed with in-house producer Dokta Frabz. This was the moment that we know the Christian would win the competition. His original song, “This Kain Love” was fun and catchy, it was clear that he totally enjoyed performing it on stage. Vicky also did very well with her inspirational song “Keep Your Head Up” and Mattade’s “Mo Le Jo (I Can Dance)” was definitely very catchy!

The winner Christian is now the proud owner of a brand new Rav 4 SUV and $US100,000 cash prize. The prize was presented by M-Net Africa Managing Director, Biola Alabi and the Head of Sales for the show’s sponsors – Glo.
Congrats!

    Congrats Christian, saw it coming, its all about politics, Vicky was supposed to win that. watch American X-Factors thats the deal, everything in naija is all about politics.

      There is nothing politics there. It was by vote. The person with the highest vote won. Though Vicky tried and deserve it but its not by your voice but by people’s vote. Guess Christain has a large family and friends voting 24/7 to ensure is victory.

    Vicky was supposed to win this. The organisers need to borrow a leaf from America`s X-Factor and see how it is done. Voter cannot identify potentials.

    There’s nothing to be excited about… Glo 9ja sings is a sham…. christian didnt deserve to win, yes he is a good singer but vicky owned the prize all the way…..

    Well, rite from the moment Christian got to the top3, i knew he would win (Politics na).
    Watching the show from the auditions to the finals, it was so obvious that Vicky is the Best. I wish she won but mayb she aint got much votes like someone earlier said. But really Xtian is not all dat…a lot of those that were evicted are much berra dan him, the likes of Tee Songz, AM OK, Precious, abegi dats Naija ooo.
    Congrats all d same but i love Originality.

    No matter who won Nigerians must have diverse positions. Congrats to Christian, he was fabulous with his own song. Vicky and Mattade were good & great but maybe mother luck! Their solace should be in Omawunmi & Darey who were never winners when they competed in reality shows but are world beaters today.

    Stopped watching the show after Tee Songs was eliminated. Congrats to him sha,whatever he did(apart from singing) was really potent and worked for him.

    The winner emerged by voting. I am tired of Nigerians sitting in their palors and rooting for someone and not doing anything about it. If u believe Vicky shud hv won, why didnt u vote. I now believe that indeed naija sings is won by voting alone. U can never imagine d number of pple voting for Christian here in Abuja. The likes of Jeremiah Gyang, Francis Duru, Samsong (his clique) and all their fans combined were voting for him. His family, Friends, Church members etc. Haba, i’d hv been surprised if he didnt win! Thumbs up Christian, i hope dis will give him the opportunity to showcase his comedy skills. He is wayyyyy better in comedy. LOL.

    Just watched some clips on DSTV.COM and Vicky sure has got fantastic strong vocals… They probably picked the winner based on his other attributes n again like triangle said…he is sure not a kid in d entertainment business if he had all those people behind him. But then Vicky could still be very successful if she gets very good deals considering d fact that she already has d popularity as well.

    Wat u guys re sayin really doesn’t make sense. Naija sings picks d winner accordin 2 d num of votes he or she has. It wasn’t arranged. If u felt vicky was d bst, u shud av voted. Voters voted 4 Christian cos dey saw hm as d best among d rest. So wah’s ur stress? No mata wat u say or do, it can never change d fact dat Christian won. Congratz Christian, u dserve it. Vicky nd Mattade were gr8 also, dey can stil shine if dey wnt 2. Dey dnt av 2 dpend on being d winner b4 dey can bcum popular jzt lyk d lyks of Darey nd Omawunmi. Dah’s d ish here. Christian won, no one can tke dat away 4rm hm.
