Rapper, singer and lyricist Sound Sultan who died on July 11 was honoured with a medley performance of his songs by the celebrity coaches of The Voice Nigeria season 3 and their talents as a glowing tribute in recognition and celebration of his contribution to the music industry.
Sound Sultan mentored many award-winning musicians and wrote several hit songs.
The grand finale of The Voice Nigeria season 3 is billed for this weekend, with the top six talents seeking viewers and fans’ votes to win the N10m grand prize and other mouth-watering gifts.
Meanwhile, episode 17 saw great vocalists Anu and Nuel Ayo exit the show while Naomi Mac, Esther, Dapo, Kitay, Kpee and Eazzie continued the race as the last six out of the 25 talents who scaled the auditions and started the contest.
Kitay in Team Yemi-Alade, Dapo and Naomi Mac in Team Falz, Eazzie in Team Waje with Esther and Kpee in Team Dare all survived by numerous votes from their fans.
The race to the finals of FirstBank-sponsored The Voice Nigeria season 3 continues to heat up as the six finalists gun for the N10 million cash, a car, and a record deal with Universal Music Nigeria.
During episode 17 last weekend, the last six vocalists performed various songs and are hoping with their powerful performances to get maximum votes from fans for a chance to remain in the competition.
Esther opened the weekly show with a beautiful performance of Beyonce’s ‘Love on Top’, then Dapo with Michael Bolton’s ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’, followed by Kitay with Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’.
Naomi Mac sang Brenda Fassie’s ‘Vuli Ndlela’, Kpee with Fireboy’s ‘Vibration’ while a very emotional Eazzie closed out with ‘I’m Not Telling You’ by Jennifer Holiday before host Nancy Isime announced that season 4 will be coming soon.
