The battle to emerge tops got fiercer in the 10th episode of #TheVoiceNigeria as the contestants were in no mood to slip up. Apparently, so were the coaches too even as Timi Dakolo who was yet to use up any of his steals ended up using all two he was entitled to.
#Team2baba representatives, Tobore and Jennifer stepped on stage to perform ‘Awww’ by Dija.
Despite Tobore complaining of the song being more suitable for a female, he managed to deliver a good performance with Jennifer.
2baba however chose to keep Jennifer in the running while Timi Dakolo was magnanimous enough to steal Tobore – who could not hide his excitement as he fell to the floor in a joyous mood.
The next performance of the night was by the duo from #TeamTimi, Happiness and Kofo who sang Seyi Shay’s “Irawo’.
They gave a good account of themselves and Timi Dakolo told them they blended well with the song and that he was proud of them.
Their performance was followed by that of Michael and Dewe from #TeamWaje.
They performed ‘Against All Odds’ by Phil Collins and Mariah Carey. The duo got positive raves from Patoranking and 2baba but Waje in the end, went for Michael. Dewe was fortunate as Timi restored his hope by hitting the Steal button.
A’rese and Flourish from #TeamWaje gave a memorable performance of ‘Stronger’ by Kelly Clarkson.
Both Patoranking and Timi loved the performances and they said as much with Patoranking saying “That was beautiful. I’m scared of the people coming next.” Waje was however left with the tough decision of letting one of them go and it was Flourish that had to leave. It was an emotional scene as Patoranking had to comfort Waje as she couldn’t hold back her emotions at seeing one of her own exit the stage.
The next pair on stage was Nonso and Shimar from #TeamPatoranking and they sang ‘Treasure’ by Bruno Mars.
Nonso was chosen as the winner even as both talents got positive raves from Timi for “owning the stage” and bringing everything they have.
The last performance of the night was from Obass and Cornel from #TeamTimi who sang Timi’s hit song ‘Wish Me Well’.
All the coaches were ecstatic, especially 2baba who could not help but hop on his seat while screaming. 2baba bared his mind on how brilliant the performance was and went on to say “For anybody to be able to sing Timi’s song, you must be a confirmed vocalist”. Patoranking on his part said, “you know the beautiful thing about your performance. I felt love, compassion, and the emotion was so strong.”
