While some could not believe their ears, others were busy chanting retorts which overshadowed the amplified voices of the host and judges.
“Was it not this same Ratty who received the best act last week after he dazzled the audience with his perfect twi raps to accompany Frank Edwards’ You Too Dey Bless Me’ track?” a member in the audience uttered.
On the same night, the Icons stage witnessed another double eviction. Apart from Ratty, Reggie left the house due to ill health. Her health was her reason for opting out of the show, however it seems her pain of leaving the contest comes nowhere near that of the only rapper in the show.
Coincidentally, Week 6 on the Icons Remix edition coincides with the day two other evictees were booted out, bringing the number of evictees to six. So far, the show has seen Willie, Enam, Hannah, Eli, Naya, Reggie and Ratty axed down.
This week’s show was dedicated for soul music and the remaining contestants comforted the heart-broken audience with wonderful jazz and RnB tunes. From the list of excellent performances recorded for the night, Chris swept the three judges off their feet with ‘the way you make me feel’ by Micheal Jackson.
The complements from the judges and the audience explain why the Kumasi Icon won the best act for the night for the second time.
The gentleman who won last week’s best act for the night has been sent packing this week. The question on many people’s lips is will history repeat itself with the cruel treatment of axing the fan’s favourites. Time will tell.
