Michael Achu emerges the Winner at the Epic Star the Winner Is Season 1 Finale!!



Michael Achu's Winning Moment

In what could be described as the most unusual shocking twist of all time, Star The Winner Is “Nigeria’s first music game show” over the weekend presented an epic climax to the maiden season of the show.

After six semi finalists went against each other, the battle for the life- changing grand prize of 10 Million Naira and a brand new car intensified in the final round finale with two great singers, Job Idoko and Michael Achu delivering the best of their vocal chords to wear the much desired winning crown.

As is the usual tradition on the show, both contestants were offered 2 million Naira to walk away or wait to see the 101 Jury results which would reveal who actually won the duel round and would be going home with a brand new car and 10 million Naira.

Both contestants were tested with money and Job fell for the pressure and walked away with the money on the table, which automatically qualified Michael as the winner of Star The Winner Is Season 1.

Upon the reveal of the results, Job who had higher votes but had opted to walk away with 2 Million Naira forfeiting his winning spot to his counterpart Michael Achu. Fate and destiny definitely smiled on eventual winner Michael Achu, as it would have turned a bitter experience for Micheal, if Job did not press the dreadful buzzer to walk away with 2 million Naira, Michael would have gone home empty handed.

    Michael was the better singer even though Job got higher votes. Michael believed in himself and was not tempted by 2 million. I guess he was destined to be the winner

    michael had better vocal prowess than job; and thus deserved to win. i’m glad he did win. at least no one left empty handed, case closed.

    Star should be faulted, cos i expected them to announce d winner and compensate the runner up.

    I think its lesson for us all, Mic believed in himself and kept thinking what if i win, while job was thinking what if i lose and that was what counted for Mic . Believe in yourself
