Bayelsa born singer, Kingdom Kroseide has survived eviction from the ongoing Nigerian Idol season six music contest show, with a dazzling performance of Teni’s Uyo Meyo.
Out of the eleven contestants who were left, two of them, Faith Mac and Dotun, were evicted from the show, for scoring the least votes in the first round of public voting.
The surviving contestants had the task of performing songs composed by their music idols, before the judges; Seyi Shay, DJ Sose, and Obi Asika .
Kingdom, who is said to be a fan of pop star, Teni, gave a good account of himself with the song Uyo Meyo, which was well received by the audience, who sang along and clapped their hands.
DJ Sose in his remarks said that Kingdom seemed very comfortable with the song while Seyi Shay noted that the performance of the undergraduate of the Federal University Otuoke was emotive.
Another contestant, Daniel, did a cover of James Arthur’s song, empty spaces. His performance was met with criticism by Seyi Shay and Obi Asika, but DJ Sose believed that he did a good job.
Faith Jason opted for the song ‘all time low’ by Jon Bellion, a song he performed during the audition and the judges loved it, even more, this time as Seyi Shay could not contain her excitement.
Beyonce performed a cover of the track, Dynamite and DJ Sose commended her for showing her playful side while Obi Asika noted her growth through the stages of the competition.
Emmanuel rendered a soulful cover of Labyrinth’s song, ‘beneath your beautiful’, which was lauded by Obi Asika for the palpable emotion and Seyi Shay described it as ‘captivating’, while DJ Sose remarked that Emmanuel will fare better as a live performer than a studio recording.
The competition is now left with nine contenders; Comfort Alalade, Emmanuel Elijah, Clinton Franci, Beyonce Ajomiwe, Francis Atela, Faith Onyeje, Akunna Okey, Daniel Ikechi, and Kingdom Kroseide to battle for the grand prize of 50 million naira.
