An ace singer/actor, Onyeka Onwenu has said that she would want a situation where the opinions of judges will be considered in the season 3 of Glo Naija Sings reality show.
The veteran actor who was one of the judges alongside Sammy Okposo during one of the recordings of the show and witnessed the first eviction of the show said this will ensure that the best performers emerged winners.
It will be recalled that in Glo Naija Sings, only the audience can decide who stays in the reality show through their votes. Though, there are judges but the opinions of the judges do not carry any weight unlike other reality shows across the country and beyond.
In some cases, it is fifty-fifty. That is, judges save some contestants while the audience saves some others. Some critics believed that giving the audience 100 per cent right to determine who goes or who stays will not ensure the best, as most of the viewers will vote out of sentiment and favoritism.
This is why Onyeka Onwenu is advocating that the opinions of judges, who are professionals in their own right, to carry some influence.
Onwenu however, expressed satisfaction over the quality of the show. “the show is great and exciting. The contestants are getting better, they are learning very fast and if they continue like this, by the end of this show, we won’t recognise them again.”
