MTN PROJECT FAME AUDITIONS
If there ever was a doubt about MTN Project Fame being West Africa’s biggest talent hunt competition, the Abuja and Port Harcourt auditions certainly dispelled the doubt.
The event drew a multitude of music enthusiasts from the two cities, all of them seeking a shot at the grand price of N5,000,000, a brand new SUV and a recording deal worth millions of naira.
The venues for the auditions, Bolingo Hotels in Abuja and Vointel Hotel, Port Harcourt, were a beehive of activities during the two days. For the wannabe superstars, it was all or nothing as they tried to impress the judges comprising of Tyeng Gang, Matilda Duncan and GodpeOnDebeatz in Abuja and Mary Ann Okon, Ada Onwusiribe and Chuks Robert in Port Harcourt.
The Abuja audition had an added twist with the presence of Geoffrey, winner of last year’s edition of MTN Project Fame. Being a past contestant from Abuja, Geoffrey’s presence was a morale booster for the teeming crowd that turned up for the auditions. The Benue born artiste also gave an entertaining performance of his latest single, ‘Burst My Brain’.
At the end of the auditions, it was different strokes for different folks. For some it was the end of the road, a painful end of their dreams of stardom. For others, all of the hard work and persistence they put in finally paid off as they were selected to go to Lagos for the Live auditions.
Up next is the Ibadan auditions which will hold on June 27, 2015. There will also be auditions in Ghana on the same day, while the Lagos auditions will hold on the 3rd and 4th of July.
