Nigerian Idols: Moses and Debbie Rise jostle for crown
The battle for the Nigerian Idol crown between Moses and Debbie Rise reminds one of the contest between Omawumi Megbele and Timi Dakolo.
Looking at the contestants at the final stage- the guy versus girl; plump versus skinny; energy versus finesse, where else have we seen this all before if not between the ever delightful and energetic Omawumi and the reserved yet confident Timi Dakolo? It was a tough decision for the judges but eventually Timi took it all. Omawumi took second and rocketed into the limelight with her single ‘In the Music’.
Both finalists share unique traits with their predecessors. Moses has Omawumi’s big voice and Timi’s quiet personality while Debbie’s sound is more of a match with Timi. She does, however, share Omawumi’s energy and never-back-down spirit.
Sunday night’s performance put Moses and Debbie Rise in definite juxtaposition with each other. Debbie was a diva with her song choices, singing ‘Survivor’ by Destiny’s Child, ‘Fallin” by Alicia Keys and mash up of ‘Shy Guy’ by Diana King. Moses took his pick and sang ‘Forget You’ by Cee-Lo Green, ‘Redemption Song’ by Bob Marley and ‘Oliver Twist’ by D’Banj.
In the end, it is up to Nigerians to choose who has what it takes to become the next Nigerian Idol. It will be a showdown on Sunday as the grand finale airs and Nigerian Idol names its season three winner. Who picks the crown – Moses or Debbie Rise?
