Esther Benyeogo, a 19-year-old singer, was crowned season 7 winner of God’s Children Great Talent during a live television broadcast at Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.
Benyeogo beat 9 other finalists, Joseph Odi, Damilare Bafunso, Anderson Peter, Deborah Oladipupo, Olawonuola Kehinde, Sophia Albert, Goodluck Enoch, Nengi Jaja and Emmanuel Osahor to win the competition.
She received the show’s grand prize of a N250 million management contract, N10 million cash and a brand new Kia Rio.
The winner’s selection was a combination of GCGT7 judges’ scores and audience votes for Esther Benyeogo to emerge victorious.
“The journey has been long. Weeks of practice and focus but in the end, it is has been a blessing to remain in God’s grace. I thank the Almighty God for helping me express my talent through GCGT and more importantly, making my light shine among thousands. Here I am, standing,” Esther said, after the win.
Sola David-Borha, a representative of the City of David Parish pastor said, “Together we have sung, danced, laughed and loved every moment of this season. We appreciate the support from The How Foundation, media partners, viewers and members of the production team for a successful season”.
