So what exactly makes theMTN Project Fame so special? What readily pops to mind would probably be the impressive talents that do vocal battle, week-in, week-out. But the competition is much more than that. Take the fashionable side of Project Fame for instance.
Today, MTN Project fame has emerged as a major fashion trend setter. If you are looking for the latest fashion trends then you probably should be glued to the show.
There’s the ever impeccable Joseph Benjamin and the delectable Bolanle Olukanni, hosts of the music talent reality TV show. How about the contestants clad in various eye-catching outfits, some of which reflect the genre of music they perform? The judges and the Faculty are not left out.
In commemoration of MTN Project Fame’s rich fashion heritage, this edition will feature the PF Style Contest. Followers of the show will be required to style and upload pictures of how they would want their favourite contestant to look like on Instagram with the hashtag #PFStyleContest or #MTNProjectFame8. The Winner will be rewarded with a VIP invite to the PF Gala show, backstageselfies with favourite contestant and other fantastic prizes.
Fashion apart, the silent (and sometimes not so silent) battles between the Judges and the Faculty is always a striking point in the show. First there’s the Faculty made up of Joke Silva the veteran actress, Principal of the Faculty and ‘mother’to allthe contestants.Dupe Ige, the ever approachable Voice Coach, and the strict Ben Ogbeiwei make up the list of the Faculty. Together they protect the contestants from the Judges made up of theoutspoken yet objective Bibi Brew,Tee. Y. Mix, probably the most musically savvy of the lot and the hard to please Ade Bantu. The run-ins between the two groups are always an added side attraction to the show.
And then there’s the music from the contestants. That’s what MTN Project Fame is all about; West Africa’s finest battling for the opportunity to become the next Iyanya, Chidinma or Praiz.
On a general note, the MTN Project Fame season 8 has been a potpourri of everything- from fashion to lifestyle, to power tussle and surprises.
