Yemi Alade’s six-talent team was in the spotlight as the ongoing The Voice Nigeria season enters the knockout stage in week seven.
While the three other coaches – Falz, Waje, and Darey Art Alade – had the opportunity of stealing any of the talents after their performances, some members of Yemi Alade’s team failed to make it to the next round.
With the six talents – Toscene, Loven, Vanilla, Ewa, Tim Ayo, and Kitay – serenading the viewers and coaches in the knockout stage, Yemi Alade was tasked with deciding the fate of the three talents that moved to the next stage tagged Battlefield.
Three talents in the Yemi Alade’s team namely Vanilla, Kitay, and Toscene became the first three to make it to the next stage, Battlefield.
Loven, who admitted to forgetting his lyrics, failed to convince any of the coaches to be stolen and was sent to the danger zone where he ended his journey after a rendition of Wande Coal’s ‘Away.’
In the same vein, Ewa’s rendition of Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman’ failed to coerce the coaches into allowing her to continue her journey on the reality show. Timi Ayo’s recreation of Rotimi’s ‘Love Riddim,’ also got him into the danger zone and eventually out of the competition.
An emotional Yemi Alade, who saved Toscene after her performance, urged the evicted talents to keep fighting and doing what they do best till they are heard.
The week ended with the show’s headline sponsor, FirstBank promising to reward viewers with the FirstBank moments through its social media handles.
