It was thrills and frills in episode 10 of Tecno own the stage as popular, hip hop artiste, Falz the bad guy joined the contestants and fans in Africa biggest karaoke show.
The show commenced with the show’s host, Vimbai Mutinhiri, announcing that the contestants were going to be performing songs originally performed by the judges

With a star prize of $25,000, a recording deal, and a brand new TECNO Phantom 5 smartphone up for grabs, Sunday’s show was always going to be a fierce contest amongst the contestants.

The mood was however lightened up by the guest artiste, Falz the Bad Guy, with a beautiful rendition of his hit single ‘Karishika’.

At the end of her performance, Bien, Sauti Sol’s lead singer, explained to the audience the meaning of the song’s Swahili title which, literally translated, meant ‘touch me’. He praised Nandy for her good delivery but faulted her inability to bring to life the song’s sexiness despite the fact that the Tanzanian, in Bien’s words, was “a very sexy girl.”Ramar254 was next, performing another Sauti Sol single, ‘Money Lover’. But he was rebuked by Bien for missing his lines during his performance. M.I. however came to the Kenyan’s rescue by jokily heaping all the blame on Bien.

He said: “I don’t know who wrote that song. I don’t know what group sang that song but that was a terrible piece of music.”

It was thereafter Shaapera’s turn to take to the stage with her rendition of Ms Alade’s ‘Johnny’. And it was a performance to behold by the Nigerian who, unknown to the audience, had earlier been involved in an accident and was only given the green light hours before the episode was shot.

After that, the judges announced who would be making a departure from the show, which turned out to be Ramar254.

It meant that for a third successive episode a Kenyan had been ejected from the show. But Sikin and Pascal are still in it alongside the Tanzanian, Nandy, and the Nigerian, Shaapera. And they are scheduled to make a return next week.

The show is scheduled to end February 7.
