Lagos has got swags, big time! After the postponement of the auditions from the 23rd of June 2012 to 13th-14th July 2012, Ultima Studios, Lekki played host to the teeming hopefuls in Lagos and its environs who have made up their mind to give stardom a chance.
Before 8am, the entire venue of the auditions was already over-packed with contestants. It was a bright morning with much anticipation laced with excitement, the contestants all colourfully dressed in different fabrics and attires, and diverse hairstyles which characterises the glam and class in Lagos (Eko for show) - some of them had different musical instruments to accompany the songs chosen for the day, others have earphones already plugged in their ears, probably listening to the song which would determine their fate for the day. Some others printed out lyrics of different songs from the internet while some others had theirs written in ink in their notepads, and some obviously had theirs written on the tablets of their hearts. Which of these worked best? Guess your response is time will tell...
MTN Project fame has really come to stay but if its actually to produce the best contestant with talent I personally feel the purpose is defeated if contestants are not being judge by their performance but by viewers/family/friend's vote. The best contestant may not have d highest vote and it doesn't make an objective judgment. But then I must commend the constructive criticism of the judges as well as the efforts of the Academy Crew, they're great!
Kudos to MTN for organizing Project Fame in West Africa, it has been a wonderful competition with assistance of the Faculties and Judges to nurture and screen all the Contestants to the last seven (7) of the final stage. Is it the video quality, audio audio, the lightening on stage or all the audience at the competition. Also Kudos to the Sound Engineer, the Media and all the Instrumentalists with the Back-ups voice, they all have done a great job. Project Fame is Marvelous so far.
