AccessTheStars: Sound Sultan, Waje share winning tips with contestants
Gradually, things are taking shape in the ongoing music reality show, Access The Stars. On the last episode, the contestants in boot camp were thrilled to have a mentorship session with seasoned artistes Waje and SoundSultan.
The excitement at Bootcamp was palpable as this was a dream come true for some of the contestants, who were excited to get winning tips from established acts.
Ahead of the week’s task, Waje whose vocal range covers three octaves shared some advice with the contestants saying, “When it comes to covering people’s songs, there’s a tendency to want to sing it like the owner. We want you to be inspired by what they’ve done but still bring out your own personality”.
During his masterclass, talented singer and composer Sound Sultan shared words of wisdom with the youngsters, emphasising the importance of collaboration over competition during the duet performances, under the theme, Best of Both Worlds.
For the first performance, each contestant worked to harmonise with an opponent performing a duet. Later on, the contestants took to the stage as solo artists, staking their claim to the finale.
Despite the amazing performances by the contestants, celebrity judges Seyi Shay, Kaffy, Tee-Y Mix nominated six contestants for eviction. By unanimous Judges votes, two of them were saved. The audience said their goodbyes to SlyWonder, Olutunz, Mimi Victor, and Gabriel Songz.
The remaining six contestants will proceed in the competition battling for the top spot, a cash prize of N150,000,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Million Naira), a brand-new car and a management contract.
