Who Will Win The MTN Y’ello Star Competition?

December 10, 2020

The MTN Y’ello Star competition has been an amazing ride so far. The contestants have entertained and dazzled the audience with their amazing voices, but more importantly, they have demonstrated a considerable level of professional and musical growth since the time they stepped into the house and now.

What then comes next?

A LOT!

But first, who among the bottom 5 will be saved, and who will leave?

You all voted, and the doors will tell us who gets to stay and who leaves. Purple means NO, and Yellow means YES.

David Garland – Purple (NO)

Jesse – Purple (NO)

G Isaac – Purple (NO)

Storm – Yellow (YES)

Oiza and Meyi – Purple (NO)

It was so emotional to see these special talents go, but the votes sealed their fates. Even the judges admitted this, and wished them the very best because, according to them, the contestants were special stars and would certainly go on to do great things.

We’re rooting for them too.
