History was made in the ongoing weekly MTN Project Fame West Africa 8.0 as Emmanuel Amos Anderson became the first contestant in the history of the competition to be eliminated and then readmitted into the competition.
Anderson, who is currently studying International Relations at IRGIB Africa University, Cotonouwas the centre of attention asthe judges were forced to cave into pressure from the audience by granting him reprieve to continue in the competition following his initial elimination.
Like a prophet, Show anchor, Joseph Benjamin, set the tone for what could turned out to be the most nerve racking episode of this year’s edition of Project Fame with his ominous speech: “The show this week is going to be with lots of surprises and am sure you all will be delighted to see what the surprise is all about”.
Interestingly Anderson was not the only contestant on probation. The previous week saw all the Contestants placed on the dreaded probation. Deinde Okubajo, Chike Osebuka Ezekpeazu, Oluchi Odii,Funmilayo ComfortArewa, Adanoritsewo Gold Tosanwumi and Pearl Awa-Agwuall escaped elimination, while KumiAmmaKorantema, Jeffrey Ufedo Akor, Stephen Sackitey Okletey Biqo, Joy Chukwuma and Emmanuel Amos Anderson had to sing their way to redemption.
Kumi was saved by the panel of Judges made up of Bibi Brew, Ade Bantu and Tee.y Mixwhile theFaculty members comprising Uncle Ben, Joke Silva and Dupe Igesaved Jeff. Joy on the otherhand had her fellow contestants to thank for saving her from elimination leavingBiko and Anderson up for elimination.
As the show continues, followers will probably be asking if Anderson’s luck will still hold out,or will the young man’s dreams of fame and future be shattered?
