Finalists in duet as ‘Nigerian Idol’ climaxes

IT was an riveting performance on Sunday night as, for the first time ever, the two finalists in the Nigerian Idol Season 3, Debbie Rise and Moses, united in a duet, performing Cyndi Lauper’s Time after Time. They both went ahead to perform three songs each in the show which had Banky W as guest judge.

The ultimate icing on the cake was a performance by Banky W. He performed his latest hit single, Yes/No, while also commending the contestants for making it this far. “The fact that you both have come this far means that you guys have done well. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. What matters is what you do when this season is over. Remember that, take it and do the best you can with it,” Banky W said, after watching their performances.

The judges, Yinka Davies, Jeffrey Daniels and Femi Kuti, echoed similar sentiments, but were in a dilemma picking who was the better performer on the night, as both contestants returned to stage with more energy and skill. “This is it. This is the battle, and what we were actually looking for from the beginning. I know this is not the end for you two. Wherever you go from here, I’ll be watching,” said Daniels.
