This year’s Icons show has started with passion, with all contestants seemingly poised for action. The glee and verve with which they perform is so enchanting that one cannot afford to miss any of their performances.
This week’s live show saw the exit of the lovely Enam, the Saint Monica’s Secondary School graduate. She said eviction came as a shock but that will not deter her dreams of becoming a music icon. Ena, promised to use the experience gained from the show to propel her on to her dream stage.
Enam is the second to be evicted from the show following the sacrificial lamb, Willie.
After the painful eviction, each contestant shared a message on the rampant and rapidly consuming disease of our time; Ebola before taking to the stage to perform their Reggae themed selections.
Titi was first to take the stage to perform ‘Man Down’ by Rihanna. Dolly thrilled with Christopher Martin’s 'Cheaters Prayer’ while Regina and Eli performed Lucky Dubes ‘It’s Not Easy’ and ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’. Alice gave a good show with ‘Sleeping with a Broken Heart’ by Alicia Keys.
Chris gave a motivating rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘Redemption Song’. Ratty rapped his own rendition of ‘Stuck On You’ by Lionel Richie.
Cina got a standing ovation from guest Judge Anita Erskine with Culture’s ‘Mount Zion’ and Hannah was dreamy with Bruno Mars ‘Billionaire’.
Naya was adjudged the best performer for the week’s show with her rousing performance.
Evictions continue next week.
