Safeeyat, Ayuba put up amazing performance on Nigerian Idol

ADDING a new flavour to the competition, Nigeria’s top musicians of the 80s and 90s paired with youngsters of Nigerian Idol in a memorable Sunday night performance. With judges Femi Kuti, Yinka Davies and Jeffrey Daniel grooving to the enthusiastic performances, it was a fun night for the contestants, the judges, the guest singers and the audience.

Safeeyat has struggled with performance issues, but she looked set to put all that behind her as she performed the duet We are Happy People with Fuji legend Adewale Ayuba. The collaboration had the judges dancing in their seats and the audience up on their feet, singing along.

Debbie Rise performed like she was having the time of her life as she sang with the illustrious Stella Monye, reprising Stella’s monster hit Oko Mi Ye. An awe-struck Debbie Rise was visibly flabbergasted after her performance, and the duet certainly created a party atmosphere in Dream Studio.

Guest judge Mike Okri paired with Moses for the classic hit, Time na Money in a performance which had the audience chanting Moses’ name. The performance reached a heightened crescendo compelling judge Jeffrey to describe it as “the most electrifying performance of the night.”
