The race to who become the next winner of the Glo Naija Sings narrowed with theÂ double elimination of two more contestantsâ€”Najite and Ekengâ€”last Sunday.
The two were voted out after they recorded the lowest number of viewer votes. It wasÂ a shock result as Ekeng was seen as one of the strongest contestants and audienceÂ favourite since the beginning of the competition.
Host of the show, Olisa Adibua, dressed in all black, split the contestants into twoÂ groups with Boma, Ekeng and Najite in one and Rasine, Da Brodas, Casey and Peace inÂ the other, thereafter announced Boma, Ekeng and Najite who were indeed the bottomÂ three with lowest votes.
Olisa then handed the result card to Boma to read and she read out the sad news.Â Ekeng and Najite had been voted out. They, however, thanked their fans for theirÂ support, while Ekeng urged fans to look out for his first single which will beÂ released in 2011.
During last Sundayâ€™s show, the theme was Naija Classics as a number of classic andÂ popular Nigerian hits were performed. The audienceâ€™s favourite of the night wasÂ Peace, who rocked the stage and wowed all.
The guest celebrity commentator of the night was hip hop gospel singer, Kenny St.Â Brown. Also among the other celebrities that were at the show were Glo ambassadors,Â Rita Dominic and Ini Edo.
