The famed reality singing competition has drawn to a close, with its grand finale which held on the 30th of September 2012. 15 contestants from West Africa battled for close to 10 weeks in the gruelling Project Fame Academy.
The participants drawn from Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ghana, include Adetoun Adekoya, Brenda Adigwe, Ayobami Ayoola, Chinyere Ahwueh, and Christian Adeyafa. Others are Didi Kosu, Edward Wright, Grace Mark, Joshua Owusu Effriyie, Kemi Ajayi, Marvellous Odiete, Musulyn Myers, Oyinkansade Akande, Sonia Obi and Tega Apochie. Ella was drawn from a wild card contest and was not part of the initial 15 contestants.
The judges were Bibie Brew, Tee-y Mix, and Ade Bantu. The hosts were the dashing Joseph Benjamin and the delectable Adora Oleh. The Finalists were Christian, Ayo, Adetoun, Oyinkansade, Musulyn, Ella and Marvellous.
However, despite of stiff opposition, Ayobami Ayoola beat the other 6 to win the coveted prize of N2.5 million and a spanking new ride. Marvellous Odiete was the first runner up with a prize of N1.5 million and a car. Adetoun Adekoya and Ella were 2nd and 3rd runners up respectively and went home with N1 million in prize money.
Congratulations to all the contestants; they are all winners! What are you doing with that amazing voice God blessed you with?
