A Nigerian woman, Meriam Jane Nduibisi, received a standing ovation from all the judges following her performance on the Romanian version of The Voice, according to a BBC report.
The show was televised on Sunday.
One of the judges ripped the buzzer off his chair in excitement to show his interest in mentoring Nduibisi.
All the judges turned their chairs unanimously in approval of her singing talent.
This marks a big change in attitudes in the country towards outsiders according to Romanian equality campaigner Ana Craciun.
Romania has strong traditions but music is making people more open.”
It is the second time a Nigerian has been on the show, following Tobi Ibitoye’s 2015 run which saw him go all the way to the final before coming third.
Ibitoye says that If Ndubuisi wins, she will be the first black person to do so.
