An Early Christmas Inside The Project Fame Academy

As final 6 thrill with Club bangers…

There was a lot of activity in the MTN Project Fame West Africa competition last week as the final six contestants kept everyone wanting more after every show.

The competition and anxiety in the academy has heightened. There would be no more elimination in the competition until the grand finale and the competition has become more tense and demanding. The contestants who are now on their own are doing all they can to deliver outstanding performances so as to court favor from the general viewing public.

On Saturday, December 10, 2011, the final six performed back-to-back African club bangers from prominent artistes like award-winning duo, P square, 2face, Duncan Mighty, 9ice among others. The judges admitted that there was an enormous improvement in the contestants, from when they began the competition. “I have to commend the Project Fame Academy Faculty for the hard work and dedication they have put in training the contestants to become what they are today… I must say that one can only get this kind of experience and drilling from a platform like this. MTN Project Fame West Africa has given you guys the opportunity of a lifetime and the training you have received would definitely guide you through your music careers.” Nomoreloss commended.

On-air personality for Classic FM, Bucky who was the guest judge for the night also appreciated the contestants. “I am really glad to be
here tonight to witness these performances. You all have wonderful voices and I wish you the very best in the competition.”

On Sunday, December 11, 2011, the final six brought a Christmas cheer to everyone as they performed different Christmas carols and were backed up by the PlayHouse Voices. Both the Judges and Faculty were very pleased as they quietly allowed the contestants take them through the beauty of the yuletide season.

“You all just ushered in Christmas for some of us who haven’t started feeling its presence” gushed Academy voice coach, Ige. “Your
performances brought in the reason for the season and I personally thank you for that”.

The contestants later performed their individual composed songs and every performance got a standing ovation. “You can only get the best of the best from the PFWA stage. The Judges have done an excellent job picking six very intelligent and motivated individuals who would leave this competition and take over the music industry with their outstanding talents. Weldone guys!” Ben said happily.

The contestants closed the show with a group performance along with the PlayHouse Voices singing K’naan’s “Waving Flag” and Shakira’s “Waka Waka”.
