For partner Bollie when asked what compliments the duo, he explained “we are true to ourselves, we don’t imitate, in the beginning the audience and judges were unsure but they are now loving our show.”
He added, given that thousands who were in the race, they are glad to have come this far.
When asked by Madam Erskine if the duo could perform Samini, Shatta Wale or Stonebwoy tunes, Reggie Zippy explained they are constrained as the show allows for music from recognized record labels in the UK, Europe or the US.
The duo urged Ghanaians to continue to pray and wish them well to continue putting in solid performances and avoid elimination till the final in five weeks’ time.
