It was surprise galore at the Port Harcourt theatre audition of the ongoing Airtel sponsored Nigeria’s Got Talents Season 2 when Kate Henshaw and Dan Foster, both judges of the talent show, walked out on a young man, known as Heaven, for his awful performance.
The dull and careless attitude of Heaven infuriated Kate and Dan who asked him to stop singing immediately and leave the stage but Yibo, the third Judge made some effort to listen to the lacklustre performance of Heaven.
The slender built singer who hails from Port Harcourt, came on stage with so much optimism and desire to qualify for the next round of the competition, but gave an awful rendition of Asha’s inspirational hit song “Oju Mo Ti Mo”, to the dismay of both judges.
Kate and Dan had asked Heaven to leave the stage but Yibo had a contrary opinion, insisting he wanted to hear Heaven out. It was at this point that the two disinterested judges threatened a walkout if he continued singing. He continued on Yibo’s order, while Kate angrily left the stage, followed by Dan.
Yibo, who seemingly was having fun with the lad, however gave him a thumps down to align with his colleagues thus sealing the hopes of Heaven making the next round of the competition.
