Crowd favourite and one of the top performers from the first performance show of Hymnodia, Rioja “Rio” Peter Opia, has been eliminated from the fast-growing reality programme.

Following the probation from the preceding stanza, Rioja and Rachael Darley returned the lowest votes from the public and had to do a sing-off head-to-head on the spot to determine who remained in the hunt for winning Hymnodia season one.

While Rachael rendered a solemn version of popular hymn Abide with me sitting on the steps, Rioja belted his hymn from a standing position, drawing applause from the audience. In the end, and following a 2-1 split decision, the Judges voted to retain Rachael in the Hymnstitute. Rachael’s good reward for her brilliant performance meant Rioja had to bow out of the contest before the self-compositions stage, despite his equally awesome performance.

Despite their decision, the Judges and the Dean saluted the quality that Rioja brought to the Hymnstitute but heaped the responsibility for his exit to the voting public who withheld votes from the duo forcing them into a battlenodia (battle) for survival.

Prior to the performance show, watchers of the programme had considered Rachael and Rioja as two of the frontline for Hymnodia which has been nicknamed the art of worship, for its commitment to reigniting the culture of hymn singing, hymn writing and hymn making.
