Two more contestants, P.Scholes and Uloma, this weekend joined the list of evictees in the on-going Season Five of the Nigerian Idol TV Reality Show. The eviction thus ended their chance to win the coveted multi-million naira show.

Show anchor Illrhmz announced their names during the weekly eviction show held at the OMG Dream Studios, Omole-Ojodu, Lagos. The eviction of the contestants has now swelled the number of evictees to five after three others, namely Prime, Modele and Ayoka, were evicted last weekend.

The duo, alongside Sther, polled the least number of votes and were accordingly expected to exit the show, but the judges threw at Sther a lifeline to stage a comeback to the show and escape the inevitable fate that befell the other two.

Sther’s journey on the show appears to correspond with the proverbial cat with nine lives. From a raw tomboy living in Port Harcourt, she has emerged to be the face of the show’s themed transformation after putting up a host of energetic performances to the admiration of the judges and fans alike. In this process, she has also survived two eviction scares, requiring in each instance a last-minute breather from the Judges.

Beside Sther, six other contestants remain in contention for the top prize. They are Ogunmoyero Modolowamu (Dolu), Oyinkepreye Deborah Toun (Preye), Godson Goodluck (Classic Tunez), Ogunrombi Kunle (K-Peace), Adigwe Brenda Ada (Brenda), and Ese-Amadasun Imuetiyan (Nex2).

The remaining seven contestants will face further eviction tests through the public voting process to determine the eventual winner of the N7.5 million top spot cash prize as well as other multi-million naira juicy offers chief among which include a recording deal with South Africa-based Universal Music label.

Nigerian Idol focuses on discovering Nigerian youths with talent in music and giving them a unique platform to take shots at stardom. Nigerian Idol season 5 is sponsored by Etisalat Nigeria, Payporte, Cool Fm, Tantalizers, Cadbury Nigeria, Zaron, Dabur Toothpaste, So-Klin, ORS and Ellis Suites.
