Per the format of the show, the three top contestants automatically advance to the next stage; leaving nine at the mercy of votes and the Judges’ decision.  Three singers Achiaa, Adepa and Gabbynova picked top spots with the latter picking the first ‘Brightest Moment’ Award as he won the heart of the judges and voters with his rendition of Lukas Graham’s ‘7 years’. He took home a start phone from MTN as did Bright Owusu Bobbie, the most interactive fan.

The pulsating moment came when the host revealed the bottom 3 who were automatically up for eviction; singers, Kobi Tuesday, Pashyn and Jimi. After deliberations, the judges unanimously decided to save Pashyn, earning her the 10th slot progressing to the next stage of the competition.
