Artwork for The Voice Nigeria S2

The first live episode of The Voice Nigeria season two started airing on Sunday, 27 August with some electrifying live performances from the contestants on one of the continent’s biggest singing reality show.

The live shows involve four members of each team performing, with the coach choosing to save one contestant and the three remaining contestants put up for public voting. One lucky contestant who amasses the most votes ends up being saved. 

#TeamPatoranking got the show rolling as the contestants took to the stage one after another. Kessydriz performed Tina Turner’s What’s Love Got To Do With It, whilst Afolayan sang J Martin’s E No Easy. Hightee thrilled with Lauryn Hill’s Doo Wop and Voke sang Reekado Bank’s Ladies and Gentlemen. Patoranking saved Hightee.

#TeamYemiAlade was up next with Chris Rio performing Stiches by Shawn Mendes. Ifeoma touched a few nerves as she sang Andra Day’s Rise up. Jahnomso followed with Show Me Love by Robin S and Bunmi sang Yemi Alade’s Want You. Yemi Alade eventually made a call and saved Ifeoma.

Following this string of impressive performances was #TeamWaje with Efezino kicking off with a rendition of Clean Bandit’s Rockabye. Glowrie gave an emotional performance of Adele’s Hello while Favour sang Tiwa Savage’s All Over and Wow, the 80s man, raised the bar with his performance of Kool and the Gang’s Get Down On It. Glowrie was saved by Waje. 

#TeamTimi had Bada who sang Sean Kingston’s Beautiful Girls while Amarachi (sister to Dawn from Season one) performed Meghan Trainor’s No. Wolei sang Brymo’s Ara and finally the strong voiced Precious regaled the coaches and audience with his lovely performance of Whitney Houston’s Nothing. Precious was saved by Timi.
