With all 6 contestants bringing their A-Game on Nigeria’s first TV music game show – Star the Winner Is – over the weekend, the 101- jury members certainly had a tough time judging all the equally talented contestants aiming for the coveted spot in the semi-finals.
Contestants Oribhabor Amen, Joseph Udem, Salam Sadiq, Ifeoluwa Adediran, Nonso Iwuchukwu and Naomi Mac brought their A-game in heated duels leaving sultry singer Naomi Mac to wear the crown sailing all the way to the semi finals.
23-year-old Naomi Mac who describes herself as a product of grace, delivered a vocally flawless rendition of “All The Man I Need” by Whitney Houston and went on to win the episode by taking jury members down memory lane with “Agolo” by Angelique Kidjo securing her own spot at the semifinals.
The contestants proudly represented Nigerian artistes like Flavour, Omawumi, Wande Coal and others as they went indigenous in a bid to impress the 101-jury members for a shot at the mouth watering grand prize.
The final round of the episode proved a tough decision as both contestants Naomi and Ifeoluwa pushed their vocal chords in a heated duel. However, Ifeoluwa made the smartest decision to walk away with 400, 000 Naira when it was apparent that she did not win the round.
Winning the episode brings amazingly vocally talented Naomi Mac closer to 10 million Naira and a brand new car joining Philip, Brenda, Happiness and Rhema in the semi final round.
