His emergence as the winner of the competition ended months of heart-wrenching performances that started with thousands of contestants at the auditions that took place in Benin, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Ibadan and Lagos, to knock-out rounds and down to the top 2 contestants who won the hearts of the judges and viewers nationwide.

The highlight of the finale was the performance of the Nigerian-French singer, songwriter and recording artist, Asa who lit up the stage and hearts of guests with hit songs from her chart topping new album – Bed of Stone.

    Nice!i knew he had it in him from the auditions. but only because there werent very strong contestants and you could see the judges had already picked him as the winner as the show progressed. those judges no dey try at all. and seriously,this show needs to be revived or cancelled. its boring as heck!

    When you have the street in you will go places. I am not surprised he won because he did what many with similar background and talent will call razz and jettison. My street credential and credibility has opened so much doors for me and i know if i had tried to be posh and frosh in the circumstances and moments of my break through i would have lost it. I have the white man’s education but i have domesticated it to serve my purpose. Be real, the difference is you being you. Jasi one time. Dekunle omo iko, ori e fo ka sibe. orh orhhhhh… jeun lo
