The third season of the increasingly popular talent hunt show, Glo Naija Sings, officially begins on Sunday, with the unveiling of the top 10 contestants who will compete at the final stage of the TV show sponsored by Globacom and produced by leading Pay TV content provider, M-Net Africa.
The contestants emerged after keenly contested performances in Lagos by the top 24 winners who emerged earlier from the regional finals held in Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Benin, Enugu, Abuja, Kaduna and Lagos.
After a two-stage performance by the contestants, who the judges say have raised the standard of the competition much higher than last year, Tee Songz, Christian, AM Ok, Mattade, Oni, and Vickiola emerged as the first to qualify as they displayed their talents to viewers.
Others that qualified for the finals are Oluwakemi, who described her selection as â€œthe best birthday gift everâ€, Vicky, Lynn and Precious, who somehow impressed the judges with his performance of Sealâ€™s â€œKiss from a Roseâ€. He described his surprise selection for the finals as the â€œbest newsâ€ in his life.
