Incredible Pere Jason, 7 Other Talents Smash Blind Auditions on The Voice Nigeria 4
Spectacular 25 year-old music powerhouse, Pere Jason was the biggest talent and revelation of the night during the fourth episode of The Voice Nigeria 4 at the weekend.
Jason and seven others triumphed following impressive music performances, joining the rank of twenty three other talents who have emerged from the Blind Auditions.
With a sensational delivery that got judges Waje and Niyola jumping, the Bayelsa born talent dazzled like a diamond in the sky singing Beyonce’s XO with a melodious, silky and calm voice described by Praiz as one of the few that could get a male singer to deliver a Beyonce hit perfectly.
With Niyola being the first to turn for him followed by the other three coaches, it wasn’t any surprise that he settled for her.
In succession, seven other talents gave good accounts of their music prowess and potentials on the global singing competition tv series and offered viewers an exciting episode of melody and pleasure.
At the end, thirty one talents have now crossed the blind auditions hurdle leaving seventeen more spots for grab on the reality TV show sponsored by Nigeria’s premier financial institution, FirstBank.
22 year-old Henry Sidum, a Medical Physiotherapy student gave a beautiful rendition of John Legend’s Conversations in the Dark with an impeccable voice that got Waje and Praiz turning. He chose Praiz despite Waje’s spirited appeal.
Yunus Emmanuel, a dancer and drummer also got a spot with Niyola after singing Ric Hassan’s Believe while Praiz literally saved 23 year-old Chioma Unogu after a rendition of Beyonce’s Listen which got none turning.
For Fatima Idakwo, poverty was the motivating factor that pushed her into music. At 27, the Kogi born singer commands a big voice with rich versatility and energy. Her delivery of Titanium by David Guetta and Sia got Waje and Naeto C’s attention before she chose the latter.
Chika Nwosu, a 32 year old accident survivor poured out his heart with Michael Bolton’s When a man loves a woman and got a spot with coach Waje.
7-feet basket baller, Lothan Ikechi sang Ckay’s Love Nwantintin for a slot with Naeto C while Martin Asogwu gave a groovy vibe to his version of Bob Marley’s classic, Is This Love to end the action packed episode.
Two talents joined each of the coaches during the episode leaving Praiz, Naeto C and Waje with eight talents each and Niyola with seven.
