|L-R CHIDINMA, EMMANUEL AND JOBA|
Contestants go down memory lane with Classical music…
On Saturday, November 19, 2011, the number of contestants at this year’s edition of MTN Project Fame West Africa was reduced from 13 to 10 contestants as Joba, Chidinma and Emmanuel were eliminated from the popular music talent competition.
The three contestants were among the seven contestants with the lowest votes put up for eviction last week. The other four contestants on probation were Roy, Racheal, Princess and Ruth.
As usual, after performances by the contestants on probation, the moment of truth came: the total number of votes from the viewing public saved Racheal. The judges decided to save Roy thereby extending
his run in the competition. Next up was the Faculty and after commending the contestants, they decided to save the eccentric Ruth based on her development in the academy. The contestants who were not
up for eviction then had the unpleasant job of saving only one of their fellow contestants and after a lot of tension, they decided to save Princess.

With Racheal, Roy, Ruth and Princess saved, it automatically meant that Joba, Chidinma and Emmanuel had been eliminated from the show. Taking it all in good stride, they showed their appreciation in taking
part in the competition and promised to storm the music industry soon enough.
Wande Coal later thrilled the audience as he closed the show with an amazing performance from his “Mushin to MoHits” album.
