The tussle for the Project Fame West Africa grand prize is getting tougher
by the minute as contestants in the MTN Project Fame Academy are taking
their game several notches higher with each performance.
Last week, we saw Emmanuel, Zaliha, Princess, Aziga, Ethel and Isaac go on
probation as they did not impress the judges. They had to sing the same
songs that got them on probation last week to escape eviction.
On Saturday, November 12, 2011, MTN Project Fame West Africa decided to
take the show out of the studio by going to the prestigious University of
Lagos in Akoka and students were thrilled to see members of the Project
fame Academy Faculty along with the Judges.
At the end of the performances from the six contestants on probation, the
judges confessed that the contestants had improved from last week. "*There
is a lot of improvement from what I have heard tonight and I must commend
all of you for putting in the extra effort because you all came on stronger
than your last performances."* an excited Bibie Brew exclaimed.
The highest number of votes from the audience soon saved Ethel then judges
saved Isaac. The Faculty decided to save Princess because of the potential
they see in her and the remaining contestants not on probation saved
Emmanuel. This brought Aziga and Zaliha to the end of their journey in the
Project Fame competition and they performed for the last time in the
Project Fame West Africa competition.
On Sunday, November 13, 2011, contestants from past editions of the MTN
Project Fame West Africa competitions, Yetunde Orijah (Yetunde Omo Ibadan),
Mike, Tolu Adesina and Chidinma Ekile opened the show with various singles
that they have released since the competition.
The 13 contestants left in the academy later entertained the audience with
good performances but the judges did not overlook the mistakes made by the
contestants and did not hesitate to remind them that they were in a
competition. *"The competition just got tougher and we would now be judging
your diction, key notes and your deliveries in the songs given to you. So
we think you should focus more on your singing than on your performance so
that you don't compromise one for the other" TY Mix explains.
"You all did well with your performances but we are looking for the best
in you all. I believe some of you have gotten too comfortable in this
competition that is why we, the judges have decided to put seven people on
probation today instead of the usual six to go on probation." Kwame
"With this new development, three contestants would be sent home from the
project fame academy instead of two contestants next week. By doing this,
we believe that you all would realize that this is a competition and you
have to fight to win the grand prize." Kwame continues.
The contestants on probation this week are Emmanuel, Joba, Racheal, Roy,
Princess, Chidinma and Ruth so these contestants have to impress the judges
and the faculty to remain in the Project fame academy next week.
