Sunday saw some of the most thrilling television this year as Nigeria’s top musicians of the 80s and 90s paired with the young bloods of Nigerian Idol. It was a memorable evening for both the contestants and the superstars that graced the stage for the evening with judges Femi Kuti, Yinka Davies and Jeffrey Daniel grooving to the enthusiastic performances.
Safeeyat had struggled with performance issues, but she looked set to put all that behind her as she performed her duet with Fuji legend Adewale Ayuba 'We are Happy People'. The collaboration had the judges dancing in their seats and the audience up on their feet, singing along.
