Gbemisola, Henry evicted from Project Fame West Africa



Saturday was indeed a night to remember. While it marked the end of the journey for some contestants, it spelt the beginning of one for Nancy who won her way in to the Academy via the Wild Card contest.
Before announcing the Wild Card winner, the fourteen contestants in the Academy stepped out in style to perform a medley of some Nigerian hits in honour of the music legends who really rocked in their lifetime. They include Nico Mbarga, Christy Essien Igbokwe, Sunny Okosun, and Fatai Rolling Dollar. This performance received a loud ovation from the audience as they swayed from one song to the other effortlessly.
After choosing Nancy as the Wild Card contest winner, the contestants on probation took the stage one after the other repeating the songs that landed them on probation. And they all obviously improved on their performances.
Getting to the moment of truth, Olawale was saved by the viewers, Blessing found favour in the sight of the faculty and Johnny got most of the contestants not on probation on his side. Leaving Gbemisola and Henry as eliminated contestants.
Asking how they felt about their elimination, they both appreciated God for making them come this far and appreciated their fans for all the support they enjoyed while in the competition. They promised to work on what they’ve been taught in the Academy.
Meanwhile, Sunday was another night of beautiful tunes as the contestants one after the other took up the stage performing diverse R&B hits which rocked the airwaves in their time.
Gracing the show for the evening was R&B sensation Banky W whose presence added glam to the evening’s performances. He noted that the level of talent in the competition was high and even accoladed several of them for their performances.
After these performances, Ayoka, Jimoh, Johnny and Nini were placed on probation for flaws in their performances. According to Mr. Olumide Akinlabi, the Head, Media & Publicity of Ultima Limited, the producers of Project Fame, “the competition is getting tougher by the day, and we have put certain measures in place to ensure that this competition remains the best in the whole of West Africa.”
In his own words, Okundola Bamgboye, MTN’s Events & Sponsorship Manager, enjoined Nigerians to continue to vote for their favourite contestants.
