It was another night of excitement laced tension as two more contestant will sadly bid farewell to the competition. To kick off the evening was a medley of Whitney Houston's songs as a tribute to this great woman of songs who passed on earlier in the year. It was a brilliant performance, so don’t miss it.
Then hearts skipped a bit when it was time to reveal the five contestants with the least votes. In no particular order, Adetoun, Didi, Christian, Ella, and Oyinkansade turned out to be the contestants whose votes were not enough to keep them off probation block. The five of them repeated the songs sang individually last week. This time it was not only to impress their fans but to impress the judges and maybe the faculty who will save one contestant each from the claws of elimination.
Time came for judges and faculty to save one contestant each, and it sure appeared to be a very onerous task deciding who to save, but eventually the judges saved Adetoun, and the faculty freed Oyinkansade. For the three other contestants not on probation, two votes went to Christian while Musulyn decided to vote Ella leaving Didi and of course Ella as the eliminated contestants.
While giving their final speech, Didi appreciated everyone especially the faculty and judges and of course those who have encouraged him with votes and prayers. Ella, though had a short stay appreciated the faculty, and the judges for believing in her. On that note, Didi performed for the last time on stage for the evening. While Didi started with 'Return of The Mark' by Mark Morrison. Next up was Ella to perform love on Top by Beyonce .......then suddenly the judges pulled a surprise and chose to exercise their power of recall.
Who says dream do not come true? It was another joyful day for Monica the winner of MTN Project Fame West Africa 4,its 1st and 2nd runners up as their dreams of owning a brand new car came to reality. These Project Fame 4 stars with their friends & families made their way to MTN office, Golden Plaza, falomo, Lagos to take delivery of their winnings.
Monica, who until now had not come to terms with the reality of the fact that she won a Rav. 4 jeep went on her knees in appreciation to God for her winnings after been presented the car. Ese on her part did not waste time at all as she jumped into her fully loaded Toyota yaris car and drove it away happily after taking ownership of the car keys. Roy who got ‘last man standing’ as his appellation in the competition could not hide his joy immediately the keys of a brand new Toyota corolla landed on his hands.
This again added another feather to the cap of the communication giant (MTN) who over the years have been in the business of enriching lives. Presenting the cars were Mr. Bola Akingbade (CMO MTN), Kola Oyeyemi (GM Consumer Marketing), Cherry Eromosele (Senior Manager - Segment Marketing)
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.
