The #ProjectFame9.0 competition comes to an end today after a gruelling 61 days in the academy.

Okiemute was the surprise winner of season 9 of MTN Project Fame West Africa after a keenly contested battle between super talents from all over the west Africa region.

Following 24 talents who got reduced to the super 6 contestants who gave entertaining performances comprising of their personal compositions and African contemporary hits.

The winner of the show, Okiemute Ighorodje performed Phyno’s popular song “Fada Fada” for the closing night and it ended in a rave of applause.

The winner, 25-year old Okiemute walked away with the grand prize of N5m, an SUV, and a recording contract worth millions of Naira.

The first runner up was Elizabeth and she performed Tiwa Savage‘s “Standing Ovation”. For her effort in the house, she went home with N3m and a car.

Kitay whom a lot of people thought will emerge winner was the Second runner up and he performed Kiss Daniels‘ “Mama”. Kitay got N2m and a car.

Pere on his part came fourth and he sang Sam Smith‘s “Writing on the Wall” while also walking away with N2m.

Dapo on the fifth position sang Labrinth‘s “Jealous” and he got the prize of N1m.

Winner completed the final six as she sang Adele‘s “Hello” and came sixth. She went home with N500,000.

Each and every single one of the final six contestants are winners as they all became instant millionaires.

However, not much is to be desired from #ProjectFame9.0 competition as the overall shows ratings and followership dropped.

With plans from season 10 already in motion and Mummy J announcing on academy day 61 of #ProjectFame9.0 that all the previous runner-ups from season 1 to 9 will be given an opportunity to be crowned winner of season 10, there’s a chance Project Fame West Africa might regain it’s prized position among television shows of its kind.

The question that begs an answer from this season however is did Okiemute deserve the win?
