Sunday PUNCH airtime plus sms: 08099400229 Onoshe Nwabuikwu august 13, 2017 airtimeplus98@gmail.com The Voice Nigeria: The battle of emotions T he last time I wrote about The Voice Nigeria, we were still watching the Blind Auditions. What comes after the Blind Auditions is the Battle Round. And last Sunday saw week two of The Battles. But I must begin from week one of The Battles. Ifeoma, 32, singing against Olla, 20, from Team Yemi opened The Battles with Whitney Houston’s version of I’m Every Woman. Ifeoma would go on to be declared winner of that battle through the only declaration that counts-that of the coach. And in this case, Coach Yemi picked her over Olla. I thought Olla did well though. You could say I preferred her but Ifeoma had more hunger. In any case, as would become fairly obvious battle after battle, there were quite a few good singers who didn’t win their battles. And not always because of their voices. It could be something as intangible as looking too complacent. And no one is going to confess they didn’t like the looks of a particular contestant.
