Weldone project fame team,you guys are doing a wonderful job.I have noticed a few things id like to point out;I think the competition is gradually changing from PFWA to Project fame Nigeria.i believe other countries should be given equal opportunity whether they are as plenty as Nigerians or not.equal spaces should be given to the 4 countries.Nigerians always dominate the house and i dont think its fair on the other countries.
