The main show of ‘Naija Star Search’ kicked off last Sunday with contestants drawing emotions from the audience as they played blasts from the past. Even the judges were not left out as they enjoyed the nostalgia brought on by the show.
Seventeen contestants from across the country with diverse backgrounds and orientations will be groomed and slug it out to produce the next Afrobeats star. Grouped under Team Kenny, ID Cabasa and Team Asha, each team mesmerised viewers with sweet serenades as they took the audience back memory lane. They didn’t not only sing hit Naija songs but also remixed them with a touch of street credibility and originality.
Team Kennis performed Baby I Got It by Capital Femi featuring Eedris Abdulkareem. Team Asha Gangali performed You is the One by Azadus. While Team ID Cabasa performed live in Yankee by Eedris Abdulkareem. The band also played a vital role in interpreting the contestants’ performances.
“That’s just a warm-up to the show,” lead judge, Kenny Ogungbe said as the stage promises to be hotter this Sunday at 8 pm on ST Nollywood channels and StarTimes-ON app. Naija Star Search is a partnership venture between Kennis Music and StarTimes.
