As the Nairobi Music Academy gears up for the collaboration night on Saturday evening, the air in the Academy is quickly turning mushy.
Contestants who, after two weeks of living together, have now began to understand each other better and are beginning to throw down their guards forming casual dilly dalliances and alliances.
Amileena Mwenesi who got herself on probation not for lack of talent but for throwing her voice unnecessarily ‘all over the place’ also turns out to have tears and emotions in good measure.
On Monday, Amileena broke down into tears during the song allocation and proceeded to the bathroom because of some strange premonition, only for Racheal to help her pull herself together during a heart-to-heart chat in the bathroom.
Meanwhile, Paleki, the bold Sudanese songstress who surprised her now evicted colleague Prudence by claiming that her liking for the otherwise shy music director R Kay might be reciprocated, is proving to be a woman who is unafraid to use her sex appeal.
During a rehearsal of her collabo with Kenya’s Steven, Paleki used her powerful stage chemistry and communication while toying with him and staring into his eyes, sending Steven into a dry sweat right in front of the rest of the academy.
She went ahead to demand that he sit next to her, several times during the lesson during which she continued her coyness that left the Kenyan completely flustered.
Gaga’s and Davis’ rehearsal of R. Kelly and Celine Dion ‘I’m Your Angel’ was a lesson in good stage chemistry and communication. Davis who appears to have won the approval of Voice Coach Asiyo with his next-to-perfect performance on Sunday continues to be unassuming and tries to maintain a low profile while in the house.
Gabiro, the only Rwandan on probation this week appears to be keeping his cards close to his chest as he prepares for Eviction night. Kenya’s remaining trio in the Academy will join the Rwandan on the danger list this Saturday.
To save Gabiro, Send “Tusker 15” to 7333 as many times as you can.
