From start to finish, the show kept us glued to our seats with an electrifying percussion performance from Ric Hassani in the middle. After serious deliberation from judges Steve Baba-Eko, Denrele Edun, Dakore Akande and Mai Atafo, the winners were chosen. Eventually, spoken word artiste Ella along with model Olamide and designer Yahaya were crowned the winner of their respective fields. It was a fantastic display of the talent and a great time was had by all.
