Brenda got motherly counsel from Mummy J, Sonia fell into Uncle Ben's 'late-comer's' net. Both of them sure won't forget today in a hurry.
Mummy J gave clear motherly rules to under-aged Brenda, telling her the issues considered before allowing her to get into the Academy in the first place. She told her to be covered at all times. No low-necks and definitely no skimpy dresses and she accepted without reservations.
It was Ige's first voice training class and trust, she has got a lot of technical words to play around with in her music class. she started out with asking the contestants what music is all about, and they started doling out all manner of definitions. She came to the rescue and took them through the basics of singing. She said her classes would entail.
Joshua made it to the Academy with fourteen (14) other contestants, but got eliminated with Grace at the end of the fourth week of the competition. Watch his last performance on Project Fame 5 stage:
Joshua Owusu Effriyie is 20 years old, dark skinned, quite charming, and has a personality that draws you in. The young Ghanaian singer says he loves to eat, and therefore, loves to cook.
He spends a lot of time in the kitchen but when he isn’t cooking up a delicious dish, he is really into video games and his music. Joshua plays the saxophone, the guitar and the keyboard and is a staunch Arsenal Football Club fan.
Joshua, the top is where you belong. Keep Soaring!
Yes! It's project Fame West Africa Season 5. In season 1 we had Iyanya who has risen to become Kukere crooner, season 2, there was Mike, season 3 was the cream Chidinma who from the word go has been on top of her game, releasing hit tracks from Jankoliko even to 'Run Dia Mouth'. Just last season, Monica joined PF's hall of fame as she clinched the grand prize.
Last season, Yvonne was discovered from Benin. Will another Yvonne emerge this year? Fingers crossed...It was maximum fun and excitment as the young, middle-aged, and old came in search of fame. The funny, the serious minded also came.
This season, the search has begun round major cities in West Africa. Out first stop was at Constantial Hotel, 24/26 Airport Road, GRA, Benin City.
How will it go, will Benin be represented this year? Watch the video on youtube and be the judge.
Edward Wright made it into the Academy finally after four (4) initial attempts, but left with Tega Apochi at the second week of the competition.
Here is one of his stage performances:
He is a 26 year-old and has being doing music and song-writing for a living since his college days. He has a little daughter and a girlfriend both of whom he loves very much. He says he’s a good guy but doesn’t smile much because his eyes have seen ‘too many things’ during the savage war years that besieged Sierra-Leone.
Edward says he isn’t religious but is quite spiritual and is very connected to God. He certainly doesn’t see himself as a ladies’ man but is not averse to making new friends along the way, if they can accept him for who he is.
In Edward's words, 'I'm fulfilled and you all should watch out for me'. Ride on Edward...
Ella who's full name is Ifeoma Victoria Nnabuchi, is a 23 year old lady from Anambra state and the first born and only daughter of her immediate family. She picked 'Ella' as a stage name when she discovered the zeal to be a performer and the name has since stuck. This isn't her first stab at fame and fortune on Project Fame West Africa. She tried once in the past but didn't make it into the academy. She was unable to attend auditions this season but was told about the wild-card contest by her boyfriend who encouraged her to sign up for it. And she did.
Asides from singing, Ella is also interested in ball-room dancing. She believes she was born to be a performer and having enjoyed the support of her mother over the years, intends to do her proud on the show. The soft-spoken and emotional dark-skinned beauty, promises to also make her neighborhoods 'Satellite Town' and 'Maryland' (both in Lagos), very proud of her.
Again,l want the whole project to explode beyond West Africans alone,l want the East,South and Northern Africans to participate,l want Project Fame MTN to rotated among other African countries,it will bring out the best of the Project.Keep the Y'ello flag flying
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.
