Esther Benyeogo has emerged as the winner of The Voice Nigeria 2021.
This was announced at the Grand Finale, which aired live on African Magic and other platforms.
Benyeogo went up against finalists KPee (Team Darey), Kitay (Team Yemi), Naomi Mac and Dapo (Team Falz); and Eaziee (Team Waje).
Though each of their renditions were amazing, it seems Esther caught Nigeria’s attention with his/her classic sound and adorable personality.
Esther becomes the third winner of the show and will be rewarded with the grand prize of N10 million cash prize, a car, and a recording deal with Universal Music Nigeria.
The show kicked off with a rendition of the Greatest Showman’s ‘A million dream’ by Dapo and Naomi Mac.
After the performance, Naomi Mac was saved by the fans while Dapo’s journey ended.
Esther and Kpee were up next to render Simi’s hit single, ‘Duduke’. After the performance, the two talents made it into the last four.
Kitay from Team Yemi Alade and Eaziee from Team Waje took the stage to deliver Davido and Teni’s collaboration on ‘For You.’ After the performance, Eaziee was saved by the fans while Kitay’s journey ended on the show leaving Team Yemi Alade with no talent in the last four.
This was a particularly impressive run for the FirstBank-sponsored reality competition.
Viewers couldn’t get over the level of talent that started at the Blind Auditions, the Battle, and continued all the way through to the finale.
From Kitay and Kpee to Naomi Mac, Dapo, Esther, and Eaziee, there was no shortage of show-stopping music this season.
The series had its fair share of drama, too. Though a few contestants sparked controversy with their comments (or their surprising exits) the most shocking moment came from coach Falz, and coach Waje.
The rapper and soulful singer had consistently left fans and viewers aghast with their emotions taking the better of them.
- Coach Waje had cried at different times after the performances of some of the talents while also left unsure when she had to choose between some of her best talents at the battles
