Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, popularly called Simi, has replied to critics trolling her choice of judgment over contestants that didn’t make the Top 12 list in the Music Reality show.
After a series of auditions, young talents such as Gerald, Abigail, Jordan, Itohan, Banty, David Operah, Zadok, Faith, Progress, Debby, Precious, and Joel emerged final top 12 contestants.
However, The Judges of the show has gotten serious backlash from viewers, who felt they had not made a proper selection of talents.
@prinz_sammy said; “@Nigerianidol. The time to stop watching the ‘Nigerian Idol talents show’ is NOW… Dbanj and Simi are both erroneously chosen as judges. How can a lady whose song was termed ‘disaster’ qualified for the top 12, while CeeCeeJay that performed was asked to go?”
@Amaa_ra said; “Dbanj, Simi, and Obi need to give press statement on why saviour didn’t make it to top 12. Even when they were telling him he didn’t make it, they didn’t have any reason. It’s almost as if he didn’t make it because he has a big tummy.”
@OkorOtu said; “How did Precious qualify to top 12. A girl that forgot her lyrics totally and even sang off beats and off-key. Abeg there’s partiality there.”
Reacting to the backlash, Simi said; “I see some people mad at us cos your faves didn’t make it through. Don’t vex. So many incredible talents this Season and it gets harder as we go, cause they’re all so talented. Everybody is someone’s favourite so I understand”.
