Six of the contestants were eliminated on Saturday’s shocking third edition of the Primus Guma Guma Super Star! Do you agree with who got the boot?

After days of complaints, it seems some of the contestants were disappointed with the judges’ decision.

Although we thought Bull Dogg’s performances during the road shows were great, the judges felt differently.

The rapper, born Maleq Ndayishimiye, was among six contestants who landed in the bottom six. So what does he say about it?

“I am so sad and I feel it was unfair for me to be eliminated from the Primus Guma Guma Super Star,” Bull Dogg told The New Times after learning his fate. “I doubt the results and I wish I could see them.”

He sang his final song at Kigali Serena’s auditorium stage on Saturday’s elimination show and thanked the public for the support.

The rapper stole his fans’ hearts when he sang his latest song, “Icyuki”, going home with praises for his vocals and charisma on stage.

“Bull Dogg is a great rapper and his music conveys great message. I wish him success in his music career,” said one of the rapper’s fans.

His performance that night was super strong, as was his performances during the road shows.

The furious Tough Gang crew member insisted that bringing the judges onboard did not make any difference. 

“I really wonder how some artistes who are weak vocally and have not worked so hard in the industry would end up in the Top Five,” said Dogg.

“In this season, I was expecting the judges to vote for the talented and hardworking artistes, but unfortunately it’s not the case.”

Bull Dogg, the 25-year-old rapper, also participated in the second season of the Primus Guma Guma but he was eliminated in the earlier stage of the competition.

However, despite his disappointment, there’s no doubt in our minds this guy will go places. He’s insanely gifted. In fact, perhaps participating in the Primus Guma Guma competition will be the humbling experience he needs.

Kamichi, Danny Nanone, Eric Senderi, Christopher and Fireman were the other contestants in the bottom.

The rapper says Urban Boys will mostly likely win the 2013 Primus Guma Guma music competition, though he considers Riderman and Knowless as strong competitors. 

Competing in the Top five are Dream Boys (1), Riderman (3), Urban Boys (5), Knowless (10) and Mico Prosper (11). Support your favourite contestant by texting their number to 4343. Voting started on Monday morning and ends midnight on August 9.

An independent audit firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers was enlisted to oversee the entire voting process, to ensure that votes are conducted in a transparent way.

The winner of PGGSS 2013 will walk away with Rwf24 million. Rwf6 million will be handed to him/ her in cash, while the rest will be in form of a salary and support including an album launch.

The inaugural season that premiered in 2011 crowned Tom Close as the first Primus Guma Guma Super Star. The second season went to King James.

Primus Guma Guma Super Star is a music competition sponsored by Rwanda’s leading beverage manufacturer, Bralirwa Ltd.
