With the last group of 10 contestants performing over the weekend, only three of these acts will make it into the Top 12. Performing love songs as well as old school melodies, the 10 contestants gave their all for an opportunity to win the heart of the judges as well as votes of fans.

“This has been the most prepared group so far. Though we had some who didn’t meet our expectation, a good number of them deserve a pat on the back,” said an impressed Dede.

Hosted by On-Air Personality, Ill Rhymz; judges for this season remain  Afrobeat performer Dede Mabiaku; multi-talented entertainer, Darey Art Alade and international conscious singer; Nneka Egbuna.
