Although the atmosphere was laced with suspense as the contestants and audience held their breaths to know the verdict of the Judges on the contestants who will get admitted into the Academy, and the ones who will sadly drop out of the competition, still, the evening could boast of enough glitz, glam, and entertainment that no one will forget in a hurry.
One of such was Jeff’s electrifying performance, which again reminded us why West Africa thought he was the perfect head to wear the crown of Season 8 winner. He thrilled the audience with his debut single titled ‘Never let you go’.
Twelve out of the final eighteen contestants who hoped to get the baton from Jeff got express entry from the Judges. Hence, Eli, Oluchi, Gabriel, Winner, Elizabeth, Yusuph, Pere, Mirabel, Dapo, Solomon, Okiemute, and Favour went straight into the Academy.
However, Benjamin, Blessing, Kitay, Kissi, Seun, and Steve had to practically battle their way into the competition as they were required to perform again to get their admission. In the end, Kitay and Steve made it in as they both gave everyone a stunning show.
For Kissi, Seun, Benjamin, and Blessing, it was time to say goodbye- but not the final goodbye as they will automatically assume the Wild Card contestant positions. This means, that with enough votes, one of them can be called back into the race.
So West Africa, the journey into fame and fortune has fully begun for these fourteen contestants. They will take center stage every week to entertain and serenade us, while the Faculty and Judges do their bits by nurturing the seeds of greatness in them.
Remember, the prizes to be won at the end of the season are as follows:
3rd runner-up: N2 Million.
2nd runner-up: N2 Million and a brand new saloon car.
1st runner-up: N3 Million and a brand new saloon car.
Winner: N5 Million, a brand new SUV, and a recording contract worth millions of Naira.
