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.

Am enjoying every bit of the action..i like the judges comments on the contestants, the faculty i respect your knowledge and training in Music and equally learning one or two things from your classes. All the contestant are doing great. May the best Win.
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.
I love Adetoun, Oyinkansade, Christain, and Ayo u guys are the best.
