Academy Day 32
The day commenced with an outing by the contestants. The contestants visited a MTN Dialysis Center located at Alimosho General Hospital, Igando, Lagos State to get a first hand experience of how the sponsors of the show give back to the society as part of their corporate social responsibility. A cross section of the contestants described the experience as “one to remember” as they could see the visible work of the MTN foundation which sponsors such life changing facilities.
On the return of the contestants to the house, they didn’t have much time to relax before they had to warmly welcome ace Music Video Director/ Cinematographer- Clarence Peters. He was on a visit to the academy to lecture the contestants on the key things they need to pay attention to before venturing into the entertainment industry. Clarence told them that it was important they realise that entertainment is an art that must be well understood if they are to make a headway.
Furthermore, he went on to inform the contestants how important it was for them to eschew diligence and humility in all of their actions. Before Clarence Peters took his leave, he alongside the contestants watched a preview of his first feature film which coincidentally featured the winner of the season five edition of project fame-Ayoola.
Uncle Ben’s class was the last for the day. He directed the rehearsals of the contestants while laying emphasis on certain aspects he expected them to fine tune. He told the contestants that they should maintain a certain level of ‘finesse’ in the delivery of their songs. At the end of the rehearsals, the contestants were able to achieve significant progress.
