According to Adebayo, “All ten teams did really well especially owing to the fact that most of them are not professionals yet. However, the winning teams displayed exceptional originality and creativity in their designs. Not only did their designs stand out, one can also see the cohesiveness in their works, which some other teams lacked”.
The star act for the evening was Nigeria’s finest vocalist, Praiz, who gave an exceptional performance of his hit songs and left the audience with numerous goose bumps.
Also serenading the audience were international Nigerian acts, Ric Hassani and Avalla, who both gave outstanding performances and super talented DJ Spinall, who got everyone grooving to his beats.
Fayrouz, in a very applaudable manner, surprised the winning teams with brand new MacBook Pro laptops for each member and Nikon Cameras for the photographers in both teams.
The overly excited MUA in team Loud Tribe who went down in tears after her team was revealed as one of the winning teams, said she was beyond excited and grateful especially to the model in her team who inspired her and made her work very easy.
Fayrouz Senior Brand Manager, Nnenna Hemeson has promised that the grand finale will be bigger and more electrifying, with superstar acts for the event and suprise one-time collections by a host of famous designers.
“Fayrouz has always been interested in the youths and particularly encourage originality and uniqueness which the 10 teams displayed really well. We are very impressed and we know that Loud Tribe and Elan will deliver even more exceptional designs at the grand finale. Excitement is an understatement as we look forward to the 5th of July” she expressed.
