Two days to the D-day, Mummy J reminisced on all that happened during the season, from the constructive and objective criticisms of the judges, the safety net of the faculty, to the ingenuity of the contestants. As a matter of fact, she pointed out the beautiful studio set and the appreciative audience.
Later in the day, a surprise party was organised for the contestants and they were so happy to see everyone. Everyone? Yes, from the judges, the faculty, Project Fame alumni from Iyanya, Chidinma, Mike, Monica, Tomiwa, Kesse and so many of them. Some OAP champions were not left out, it was a full house and Mummy J thanked everyone for coming as they all moved to the party ground.
It was mega music, plenty to eat and dancing things as they all bonded as one big family.
As the competition gradually pulls to an end, the contestants still kind of found it difficult to come to terms with how far they have come. Mummy J took time out to hear them out individually.
They openly expressed their heartfelt appreciation to her and how her insight has helped with their post-PF plans. Oyinkansade particularly seem to be concerned with whom will be the next PF star, he was advised to leave it to the Lord. Adetoun also had an issue with her Dad accepting her as a Fuji cum waka artiste, but Mummy J told her to relax as she will be amazed at the acceptance she'll get from her Dad.
Another day started with Ms.Ige who asked Marvellous to sing but judging from his attitude and looks, he's probably in a funk and needs some time to get his act together.
Next she listened to Ayo, who will be performing "jankolikoko" with Chidinma winner MTN Project Fame West Africa 3. Adetoun was next.
Voice class in 60 seconds:
How to ad-lip a song. Use very simple scales with simple vowels (aaaa-eee-eee—aaa) do the notes without slurring them and keep repeating them in cycles.
Oyinkansade was made to sing "Bodyhug". He got stuck on the igbo part of the track and was compelled to either learn or resign from the Academy which seem not to be a favourable option to him.
The day continued with a re-cap of their visit to cool 96.9fm where they had a swell time with Mannie and the Angels. The contestants were allowed to perform their personal compositions and canvass for votes.
The day ended with Kaffy's class on choreography and performances for the Fela tribute songs.
With preparations in top gear, keep watching and keep voting for your favourite contestant
Today began with a quick re-cap of contestants’ performances in mummy J's class. She talked about what they did well and what they did not do so well. The contestants were encouraged to keep up the good work in the few remaining days and beyond. She then went ahead to advise them on how to save up and invest their money, rather than squander or spend the money on other people, “invest your money and then spend the remaining”, she advised.
The contestants obviously had an interesting time during the "Google hangout" session. They got to know they have fans around the world who called in from Ukraine, France, Nigeria and other parts of the world. They sang and canvassed for votes and sure had a swell time.
They were later asked about how they feel as the season gradually pulls to an end. They all confessed they’ll miss the Academy and faculty members especially Uncle Ben's classes which never went by without dolling out nicknames to them, and also their "moments of torture’.
The day ended as the contestants continued to show their gratitude for the time spent in the Academy which they will not forget in a long while.
As the days roll by, the contestants need your votes more than ever to make it to the end. Who is your favourite contestant? Then crown him/her the winner with your votes...
The day started with uncle Ben waking the contestants to have a 'sit-down' with them and get to find out what they've learnt in the academy so far. He wanted to know how the Academy has brought growth to their music career. His questions pointed to Oyinkansade's confidence level, Marvellous' control, Ayo and Adetoun's self discovery, Musulyn's growth and so on. He went ahead to applaud those who have been consistent and he pointed out that the supposed underdogs- Oyinkansade, Adetoun and later Christian- have all improved and now have a good chance at stardom.
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.
