Musulyn Myers

Sunday, 05 August 2012 17:07

Musulyn Myers is a 19 year-old Liberian girl who likes to laugh a lot. Bubbly-spirited and sweet, Musulyn says she is kind-hearted and likes to put a smile on people’s faces. Musulyn is best friends with her mother but points out that it hasn’t always been that way. As a result of the war, she and her mum had to move to the United States of America when the young Musulyn was two years old and only returned three years ago in Musulyn’s mid-teens.


Musulyn says that having grown into a young adult, she finds that she and her mother understand each other a lot more and so their relationship is tighter now than it ever was. She loves singing and dancing and also plays the keyboard. She hopes that the Academy will give her insights about how to develop her music career and significantly improve her abilities and wants to learn.

In today’s class, Uncle Ben took them through the songs they will all be performing this weekend. Ethel was first to sing, then Princess as each of them took turns to rehearse their songs and finally together they rehearsing group song ‘Olori Oko’ by Infinity. Though not so smooth yet, they are all working hard to give nothing but the best this weekend, even as Uncle Ben in his usual funny but strict manner encouraged them to put their very best and not perform below standard when they get on stage.

Later in the day, they all made their way into town to solicit for votes. Ruth and Monica came along with them even as they stopped by Beat FM. The presenters lightly scolded but still encouraged them and applauded Monica and Ruth for a good performance.  From there, they took off to NYSC Orientation Camp, Lagos where all the Corps Members in camp were eagerly waiting for their arrival. Getting on stage, the contestants sang individually to the listening pleasure of everyone, but Roy got everyone on their feet in excitement as he performed the ‘NYSC Anthem’. Youths obey the clarion call....


The contestants’ on probation’s clarion call for your votes is high. To vote for your favourite, text his/her unique number to 306 from an MTN line if in Liberia, Nigeria, or Sierra Leone. But peeps in Ghana can text to 1739.

Carol Nite and Personal Composition!

Monday, 12 December 2011 13:55


Yippeeee! It’s Christmas. The yuletide began early for us as the contestants took the competition to another level of excitement. In the spirit of the season, the Play House Choir joined the contestants to usher us into a beautiful Carol Night and an evening of personal compositions.

Monica started off singing ‘Do you hear what I hear?’ The judges were full of her praise after this smooth rendition. Next was Ethel who brought us to a ‘jazzy Christmas’ with her beautiful rendition of ‘White Christmas’. Roy stepped up the ambience with a classic rendition of ‘What Child is this’? Yvonne was so on-point with her version of ‘The First Noel’,  so also was Ruth whose performance of ‘Oh Holy Night’ pierced into the soul of everyone, while Ese brought a traditional feel to the season with a lovely performance ‘Gbo Ohun Awon Angeli ti nkorin’. It was a Yoruba carol song which got everyone dancing in excitement. It was indeed an awesome night!

Taking the performance to another level, the contestants brought up the game as they performed their own personal compositions. They were all very striking with their writing, arrangement, and performance skills. TY Mix did not fail to commend the depth of their talent. Ethel’s ‘Melody’ was quite striking especially with her description of birds and the ‘ti-ti-ti.....pow’ chorus. Ruth also did so much with languages as she sang her own ‘Mo n bo wale’. Ese dedicated her song to lovers which actually would pass for a wedding song. Roy did a beautiful one which he dedicated to ‘The African Child’, Yvonne sang ‘I Will Fly Away’, and Monica’s ‘Na you i want’. She sang in her language and ended her performance in tears.

As if all these performances weren’t enough, the evening came to a climax with the contestants s ending the show with a medley of K’naan’s ‘Waving Flag’ and Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’.

The fate of the winner still lies in your hands as it is viewers votes that will determine the winner. So to vote for your favourite, text his/her unique number to 306 from an MTN line if in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. If in Ghana, text to 1739 even as the competition draws to a close. To make your favourite contestant ‘Ese(4), Ethel(5), Monica(10), Roy(13), Ruth(14) and Yvonne(16)’ the winner, text his/her unique number to 306 from an MTN line if in Liberia, Nigeria, or Sierra Leone.

Academy Day 45: Learning to Act!

Wednesday, 07 December 2011 11:47
It’s another ‘pirate drama’ time in Mummy’s class. The first seen played Rachael as ‘Stab’, Roy directing again, Princess playing the background drums while the others produced the required sound effects. The next scene had the contestants swapping roles with Ese acting hysterical Ejire, Monica read Feyi, Ruth read Rawley, while Yvonne directed the scene. It was a really a very interesting time in class. Miss Ige’s class later in the day was rehearsals and more rehearsals. Contestants pairing for duets. First to rehearse was Yvonne and Roy, followed by Ese and Ethel, and the last duo, Ruth and Monica. Cobhams also came to rehearse personal composition with the contestants as they all get ready to perform their very own songs!

Joseph Agabi

Saturday, 15 October 2011 14:09

Joe was born in Ikom, Cross Rivers State on the 21st of November, 1986. He is very protective of his one and only sister with whom he grew up in Calabar.

It was drama time in Mummy J’s class and drama with a difference. The first scene had Rachael and Ethel as tables, Ruth as a cultist who came to warn Yvonne a lecturer, with Roy directing the scene. The next scene had the table turning in the favour of Ethel and Rachael while Yvonne and Ruth took over the table position. This led to other more interesting scenes;  it is evident that these contestants can do more than just sing and are really talented in other ways.

I love what mtn is doing concerning the voice of our youth in African,it shows the rest of the world that their is unity in Africa under one voice
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.
I have been there and done that. Being a fanatic and TV critic,I make bold to say that the content and technical diversity that MTN Project fame brought to TV is unparalleled and incomparable. When I first saw the show on TV,two things came to my mind 1,the white guys are behind this and 2,the new age of tv reality is back. But I was wrong on the first thought. You guys rock mhen. Ok bye
Sonia is WOW..God she sends shivers down my spine with that Golden voice of hers..Keep representing,Girl
Hey,This years projectfame(5) is the bomb.Actually,i expected less but what i got is filled cup with excitement and intrigues.Thumb up,organisers.
