@Nwabekeyi “The fact that faith left the show before Comfort is a pointer to why meritocracy can never see the light in Nigeria. Nigerians are Picassos in the act of Nepotism and favoritism. Little wonder country is not working.”
@Uk_ Bernard “Faith Jason going home is never a fair justice from the voting system. Sentiments and bias should no way be the deciding factor to determine an idol at this stage otherwise it’s no Idol at all. No disrespect to Comfort but I think she still got a lot to learn.”
