It’s been several weeks of hard work, grooming, performances and now we finally have a winner. Chidinma made history as she was announced as the winner of Project Fame West African Season 3. She is the first lady to win Project Fame.
The last six contestants – Kesse, Ochuko, Eyo, Tolu, Yetunde and Chidinma lined up after their performances for the night, waiting for the winner to be announced. Benjamin and Adora took their time to pronounce the winner, raising anxiety among the contestants.
It’s the first time a lady is winning the contest. And Chidinma’s win makes it the third time in a row a Nigerian is coming on top.
Gifted Ghanaian singer Kesse Frimpong was named 1st runner up winning- N1.5m and a Toyota Corolla while Eyo Eminue made the 2nd runner up position and went home with N1m and a Toyota Yaris.
Fan-favourite Yetunde (a.k.a. Omo Ibadan) was named third runner-up.
The other two contestants, Tolu Adeshina and Ochuko Ogbu-Sifo didn’t completely lose out of the competition as the top six contestants are expected to release a group song, produced by one of Nigeria’s leading producers; a well as a video.
Mike Anyasodo emerged the second winner of season 2 in 2009. With his debut album in the pipeline, he has released several singles including the recent ‘Fine Fine Lady’ which is receiving massive airplay on TV and Radio stations in the country.
Congratulations to Chidinma, and we wish her the best in the future.
