Nigeria's most celebrated talent show, MTN Project Fame West Africa is finally here. You can catch the third season on air now on several local TV stations.
The opening gala night took place on Sunday, July 18 as the final 18 contestants were unveiled to millions of fans and ushered into the Performance Academy.
The contestants would live in the Academy 24/7 and will be tutored by the Faculty – a tight professional group of music instructors whose job it will be to refine the contestants into finished and polished articles whose songs will be ready for mass consumption.
From Monday after the opening gala night, 30-minute episodes will be aired showing a synopsis of what transpired amongst the contestants, for the past 24 hours.
Today is the performance day when contestants will perform select songs. After their performances members of the public will vote for the contestants who they think had the best performance.
To vote for your favourite contestant just text his/her number to 306 from an MTN line. Each text costs N50. Voting in Project Fame started yesterday, Sunday 8pm to close on Saturday 4pm. One of the contestants will be eliminated but first, four contestants will be up for elimination. They will be given an opportunity to save themselves by performing to the audience, judges, faculty and other contestants. The weakest of the four contestants will be automatically eliminated from the competition.
The eventual winner of the complete season will be going home with N2.5M, a brand new Toyota RAV4 and a recording contract. The 1st runner up will get N1.5M and a Toyota Corolla while the 2nd runner up will win N1M and a Toyota Yaris. The 3rd runner up will be consoled with N1m.
