Talent Amidst Tears? Watch the Ramat Audition at the Glo XFactor in Abuja




Someone must have told this contestant that sob stories get the votes on these talent shows because she kicked it right out of the park.

Watch this hilarious video of one of the contestants at the audition of the Glo XFactor Nigeria. The judges sef didn’t even try to hide their laughter. Okay, Reggie Rockstone tried a little and Onyeka Onwenu was clearly not swayed! Oh Ramat, Cry Me A River!

Enjoy the video and loosen up a little this Tuesday afternoon.

    I am guessing everyone that has commented so far is nigerian even the publisher. How sad and cruel of you lots. Even before she started singing the audience were already laughing, and where is the professionalism…. The judges are such idiots. Fine she doesn’t know how sing but don’t laugh at her pain, such cunts. No wonder nigeri or Nigerians never progress. Coz you all never work as a team rather every man for themselves. Pls do change yor attitude. This is certainly not Simon Cowell’s xfactor, if it was this wouldn’t happen, judges will be more sympathetic

      Shattap there ! stop coming here to spew rubbish and expose your ignorance.

      go and watch britain’s x-factor or britain’s got talent and see how the judges laugh, make jest and react to ridiculous performances.

      oh shut up! she basically came to make a fool of herself. Her story wasn’t even a sad one. So what she grew up in a polygamous home…Na today people are born in such. Looking at the audience when she came in, seems they came to cheer her on until she flipped the script and probably assumed her story would get her some kind of sympathy. Simon would have laughed his Ass off watching this grown ass woman embarrass herself.

    WOW!!!!!!!! That girl has a lot going on…found her audition hilarious though. I thought it was really funny. But, am sad for her, really sad for her. Its a good thing she decided to try her hands singing? Still better than prostituting girl. Maybe you should really try acting, she’s got alot of emotions and pain that she seems not to be able to contain, she can always draw from that, i mean, that’s what makes a good actress right? Am sorry about the loss of your mom and the psychological trauma you had to go through coming from a broken home. 4 wives right? and she’s the first from her mom…and she takes care of them. She sure has a lot to cry about. 24 Million could really change her life. Is either singing or crying (appeal to conscience)LOL!!!. Well…i think she’s better off acting and she could really use her 3 mins to fame. Don’t shut this door girl!!!! Suck it up and make better use of it…when life hands you a lemon you can make lemonades.

    I am sorry, but xfactor is not the forum for expressing all the tragedies you have gone through. From north to south, east to west, there are people suffering untold hardship, yet you don’t see them queueing at xfactor, hoping the solution to their problem lies in a singing contest. What was surprising to me, was the fact she took her rejection quite well for someone who was bailing tears as if her very survival was dependent on getting a place. If she could sing, it would have been a different story.

    Pls who knows what channel airs the X-factor talent show.

  44. peye

    May 21, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    You know I didnt really want to laugh because I feel it’s just mean but I just couldn’t hold it. We have to be more merciful but I feel she may have some mental issues too. this is not meant to ridicule her, it’s just a thought because there’s a part of our brain that gives us inhibition. prevents us from doing some things that are inappropriate. this is too far. some people just refused to advise her. she has 5 siblings and they still allowed her do this? Not fair

  45. Help!!!

    May 21, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Well its very Obvious that she didn’t come to get a place in the competition,because from the look on her face after the judges gave their verdict it was like”ok tnk u, I didn’t expect to enter but I just wanted to show my face” to me it was all an act.
