Five Nigerian hip-hop artistes visited the on-going MTN Project Fame’s academy in Lagos last Saturday and encouraged the contestants who are gradually moving into the final phases of their stay, on the life-transforming musical reality show.
The artistes listened to various songs rendered by the contestants, Immaculate, Simon, Niniola, Olawale, Johnny, Jimoh, David, Margaret, Nancy, Blessing, Rowland and Omolayo.
On their views about the show, the artistes were full of admiration for the contestants. Wizkid said ‘these contestants are truly gifted and they will go places while KCEE said, ‘it’s a good thing MTN is giving these talented youths an opportunity to learn and get better, such that they can fulfill their dreams for music-superstardom’.
All the 12 contestants in the academy were placed on probation. The judges, Bibie Brew, Ade Bantu and music producer extraordinaire, TY-Mix, noted that all the contestants performed below expectation. According to them,’ the stage is high at this level of the competition and all contestants are expected to raise their game’.
The five contestants, Johnny, Blessing, Jimoh, Nancy and David with the least number of votes were placed on probation. They sang the same songs that got them into probation, the previous week.
Nancy from Ghana and Johnny were later evicted from the MTN Project Fame West Africa season 6 music academy.V
