One of the judges, Obi Asika, complimented her voice, saying it was one of the strongest voices in the competition.

Comfort Alalade was also lucky enough to garner enough fan votes to get a spot in the top four.

Though her reggae performance earned her criticisms from the judges, however, her version of Carol King’s ‘Natural Woman’ made up for her previous performance.

Kingdom beat Faith Jason to earn a spot in the top four. The judges commended his first performance of Majek Fashek’s ‘Holy Ghost’ while his second rendition of James Brown’s ‘A Man’s World’ earned him a standing ovation from the judges.
