Monday- 21st June, 2021: Faith, one of the best singers of the Nigerian Idol season 6, was yesterday evicted from the show.

Faith, 25, who was among the top five Nigerian Idol finalists had to leave the show after he secured the lowest number of votes, leaving 4 other constants to battle for the prize.

His eviction has left four contestants: Comfort, Emmanuel, Akunna and Kingdom to fight for the prize.

His elimination which did not go down well with some Nigerians has left some in surprise as they took to Twitter lamenting about the voting system and pity party votes for Comfort.

For some, Faith deserved to be among the four not Comfort.

According to BBNaija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on twitter wrote “Wow! Can’t believe Faith didn’t make top 4.”

Here are other comments:

@Spearssaint “This voting system should be reviewed, the yardstick used 4 qualification shouldn’t be solely on votes alone,gatekeepers should be enforced & talent shouldnt be lost at the expense of “majority carrying the vote” system! Goodbye Faith!”

@Chizzyvivy “The people that are voting for Comfort are the same who voted Laycon and Buhari. Corruption in the high places.”

@Mc Bankz “Comfort staying and faith going home is an indication that Nigerians will still vote another buhari come 2023.”

@Oluwatracie “Daniel, Emmanuel and now Faith. All 3 were good vocalists/performers yet didn’t make it to the top 4.

@Fuoma “A whole FAITH JASON! Come on you all. And the sponsors of the show, come on! This show is wack!

@Charisma_iam “So Faith, as in a whole faith had to go and Comfort is still there. It’s the audacity for me.”

@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.”

@OluchiDike4 “This type of talent show is not supposed to be solely about voting. Panels of Judges need to step in sometimes for vetting after a phase.”

Meanwhile, the top four finalists on Sunday night left the audience and the judges in awe-inspiring performances as they performed two songs each.
