Browsing: Season 7

The 21-year-old singer won after polling more fans’ votes to beat fellow finalist Zadok in a record-breaking voting season. The top-2 secured 45 million votes in the finale week alone and over 220 million votes all season long. IK Osakioduwa revealed this in a celebratory finale episode on Sunday.

Zadok opened the show with his performance of Wizkid’s Back To The Matter. It was a prelude to the glorious performances to come. His performance was followed by Debby’s cover of Brenda Fassie’s legendary song, Vulindlela. She gave an outstanding performance and complimented it with her shimmering gold dress. Simi mentioned that she reminded her of Yemi Alade.

The contestants gave it a whirl in their separate performances in an attempt to woo viewers and fans for votes as the two contestants with the least votes would be eliminated in the next round. Abigail opened the floor of the evening with an astonishing rendition of ‘Rain on Me’ by Lady Gaga. The highlight of her performance was the uniqueness of her voice that synergized with her backup singers.
