It was a battle of creativity, performance and dexterity among the top two, Kingdom Kroseide and Francis Atela, who made it to the final round. Both performed exceptionally to outwit one another with striking talent, all in a bid at clinching the prize of a recording contract with a leading record label and N50, 000,000 (Fifty Million Naira) worth of prizes.
The contestants sang three songs each, which comprises their choice of song, their favourite, and the one the judges think they did best in the show.
It was also a moment that saw Akunna evicted as she gathered the lowest votes and had to leave but was given a last opportunity to perform what the judges said was her best song, “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele.
As the show climaxes on July 11, the votes of the over 11 million fans will decide who wears the crown as the Nigerian Idol winner of Season 6.
Proudly sponsored by Rite Foods’ Bigi soft drinks, Nigerian Idol is aired on DStv Channel 198 and GOtv Channel 29.
