After weeks of grooming, small victories, tension and tears; the 9th successful season of the hit talent show MTN Project Fame has come to a very beautiful end. Out of 18 contestants who began the race for the ultimate prize, only 6 made it to the finish and to say we are especially thrilled with the outcome of the show in respect to talents and their deserving rewards; would be an understatement.
Before the much awaited reveal of the winners by the hosts Joseph Benjamin and Bolanle Olukanni, the audience were thrilled with performance by the Academy Voice Coach Ms Ige, a dance performance by Lovette Dance BITS Company (as led by the Academy Dance Choreographer Lovette Otegbola) and a special performance by Adekunle Gold.
After keeping the audience at the edge of their seats, the results and rewards were announced –
6th place: Winner Egbo with N500,000
5th position- Dapo Arogundade with N1 Milion
3rd runner-up: Pere Davies with N2 Million
2nd runner-up: Kitay Okotete with N2 Million and a mid-size saloon car
1st runner-up: Elizabeth Emoruwa with N3 Million and a brand new saloon car
WINNER: Okiemute Ighorodje with N5 Million, a brand new SUV and a recording contract worth millions of naira. Oh to be Okiemute right now!
I would say this was a successful season, the contestants were tutored under experienced professionals, looked especially great on stage and grew in experience and confidence. At the closing gala, the super six looked like stars in their own rights thanks to the amazing stylists Jane Michael and Jekwu The Stylist. See photos below.
We wish them all good luck in their pursuits.
