Ibadan has God talents indeed. The ancient city of Ibadan also played host to Project Fame crew as the search for the next music mega-star hit the city. Will they find another Roy? Will there be another Yetunde-omo Ibadan, or big, bold and beautiful Krimi? Guess time would tell.
Very early in the morning, Tafo-Arena, W.A.E.C. Junction, Eleyele, Road, Ibadan witnessed an overwhelming assembly of 'wanna-bes'. While some took solace in the restroom to rehearse, some others chose to dance to the blaring tunes from the loud-speakers at the waiting arena and some others clustered in groups preparing for the day, some aged men were not left out with their traditional musical instruments. It was a rich assemblage of diverse music talents all for one goal.
The judges were - Sholla Allyson a well known musical icon, ace broadcaster Damola Tinubu popularly known as Dammy T. and Ibadan based O.A.P. Tony Roland Awobode (Don. T.) had a filled time hearing out everyone who cared to sing and took the onerous task to select the ones that would make it to the next stage.
While we had the good, the not-so-good, and of course the funnies; the judges were able to pick out those that would make it to the next stage of auditions. How far will they go? Will they be able to compete with contestants from other regions?
Yesterday was Azonto fiesta in Ghana, and today the audition train stopped by Calabar, the city of Etighi. This was where the Kukere crooner-winner of Project Fame season 1 was discovered. Will another winner emerge from here this season? Let the search begin...
Very early in the morning, Marian Hotels received a huge influx of hopefuls who like Iyanya once upon a time came to be auditioned. While we can safely call some of these budding stars masters of dance, others just should just be christened super clowns.
Spirit of Togetherness in the Academy
As the contestants did their early morning chores, they sang along with different sonorous voices. Surely house chore is fun in the project Fame Academy.So certain that these contestants have missed church; they took time to sing praise and worship. Uncle Ben walked in to observe his class amidst this session, but allowed them to finish with the worship.
The guys and the girls will be up against each other this weekend. The boys will be singing ‘BENDED KNEES’ by Boys II Men, while the girls will counter it with TLC’s ‘PRETTY’. Which group will perform better? Let’s wait and see.
All contestants are performing songs that have rocked Africa and the globe over the years as it is going to be an African Weekend.
To spice up their evening, they relaxed by mimicking each other on their last performance on reggae night.

Thumbs up to the contestants, faculty and judges. This season has really been exciting and full of innovations. Adetoun should not allow the success recorded so far in the competition to get into her head. She must avoid frivolities and stay focused to the reason why she is in the academy. My wife and I appreciate her disposition and wish her the very best in the competition. Adetoun, be assured of our votes and support.
