The highly contested show saw the final cut down of participants to five last Sunday, declaring the final voting line for the ultimate winner open.
Though the grand finale date and town has coincidentally clashed with that of one of the world acclaimed musician Koffi Olomide who takes to the Zambian stage on the tonight as well at Pamodzi Hotel, Lakie has maintained faith in his local enthusiasts who have followed the show religiously.

Tonight Zambia will see who walks away with the life changing 250 million kwacha worth of prizes. Is it Natasha, Blake, Zillah, Trinah or Shadreck?
According to Zamtel entertainment analysis, the prize is very much tied between two girls, the diminutive, Natasha who has proved to be extremely and excitingly versatile in her acts and Trinalh who has competed and trained on a continental level before and came out third.
