This week’s episode of the MTN Project Fame West Africa had everyone celebrating including the contestants.
Last week, Ruth, Chidinma, Isaac, Aziga, Emmanuel and Velma were put up for eviction so they had to sing the same songs that put them on probation again to escape eviction this week.
On Saturday, November 5, 2011, the show was opened with a performance by the male contestants in the academy singing “End of the road” by Boys to men.
After all the performances from the contestants put on probation, Kwame, Bibi and guest judge, Abuja based on-air radio personality, Matilda Duncan explained that the contestants were quite nervous with their performances so the judges decided that none of the contestants would be evicted this week so as to give them more time to build themselves. This got the contestants, the audience and the faculty very excited.
“This is a big surprise for us all but it is definitely a good one!…thank you judges for your very kind decision” female host for the show, Adora Oleh cheerfully said.
The female contestants in the academy joyfully closed the show with the song, “We are family” by Sister Sledge.
On Sunday, November 6, 2011, the contestants were allowed to sing songs of their choice and each contestant got the audience, the judges and the faculty dancing, leaving them very entertained. Six contestants were later put on probation after all the performances.
“All of you have gotten a lot better since you first got into the Project Fame West Africa Academy and I must say…you all swept us off our feet with these songs you chose!” An excited Bibi exclaimed.
“You all were amazing but as usual, there has to be some adjustments. We are putting you on probation not because you didn’t give a nice performance but because we want to see an improvement in your presentation next week.” Guest Judge, R&B Singer, Bez said after the six contestants were put up for eviction.
The contestants up for eviction next week are Emmanuel, Aziga, Isaac, Zaliha, Ethel and Princess so these contestants have to impress the judges and the audience to escape eviction next week.
Bez and former MTN Project Fame West Africa contestant, Praiz later brought down the house with their wonderful performance.
