to God that no lives were lost. The contestants are safe and we are
confident that the show will go on, and in no time at all we will be
back on air so keep watching.”

Early visitors to the site included MTN’s GM Consumer Marketing, Kola

for WWTBAM and the title sponsors for Project Fame.  “This is a
monumental disaster. We can’t even begin to comprehend the personal,
emotional and material loss. But in all we thank God that no lives
were lost. MTN is committed to enriching lives through our different
services, properties and initiatives and we are already discussing
with our partners at Ultima on how to make sure this tragedy does not
distract us”.

Ultima is determined to take this incident in its stride and plans are
on to return to full and enhanced production of WWTBAM and PFWA
