OMOTOLA EVICTED FROM DANCE SHOW
Sexy actress and mother of four, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, was last night booted out of the on-going celebrity dance competition leaving the four remaining celebrities, Sound Sultan, Funlola Aofiyebi, Pasuma and Omowunmi to continue the show. Omotola's eviction didn't come as a surprise to both the audience and judges. Her performances in previous episodes had not been impressive. She had escaped eviction despite coming last in the judges rating in three episodes running.
But looking charming in her shiny blue number, the actress put up her best performance ever. She was applauded by the judges and the audience alike.
The actress, who wasn't expecting to be evicted just yet, in her farewell speech thanked her fans, the judges and the audience.
“I thank all my fans and those who voted for me. It was a lovely experience for me. I also thank my husband who has been very supportive,” she said.
Reacting to his wife's eviction, Mathew Ekeinde, a pilot who had always been present to watch the show said he was shocked at her eviction, but added that life goes on.
“I am shocked by her exit because I thought the show was about popularity and I think she is the most popular person on the show. Anyway, life goes on. Omotola is a very busy person, so. She'll be off to location tomorrow,” he said.
Meanwhile, broadcaster Funlola Aofiyebi dazzled all with her outstanding performance of ballroom dance. Her concept was one of the best at last night's show.
Scoring her a ten, actress Kate Henshaw Nuttal, who was a guest judge, said the performance brought her close to tears. Even the Lagos State speaker, Hon. Adeyemi Ikuforiji and his aides who were present at the show, could not help getting to their feet to applaud the performance.
Also commenting on the spectacular performance, one of the judges, Segun Lawal, said her performance would make the Season One DVD a collector's item.
Funlola came tops with 38 points in last night's show, followed by ex-beauty queen Omowunmi who also had a great concept for last night's dance theme with 33 points.
Omotola and Pasuma came third with 32 points each, while sound Sultan came last, dancing to Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On.
Other stars that were present at last night's show included Segun Arinze, Zaaki and former contestant in the show, Bryan Okwara.
