After the outpouring of emotions from last night’s elimination show, the sixth nomination show of #ProjectFame9.0 was a beauty to behold as the contestants paid tribute to respected music legends who left a mark in the entertainment industry.
The night’s performances kicked off on a surprising and interesting note as the Academy Music Director, Ben Ogbeiwi or better known as Uncle Ben stepped on stage to pay tribute to late Afro beats maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti by performing his song titled Water No Get Enemy. His entertaining performance was a wonderful surprise to the audience, who didn’t expect his performance on the night.
The wonderful performances continued as the baton was passed on to the contestants who all did well with their renditions.
The first contestant on stage was Eli and he gave a good account of himself as he performed the late Lucky Dube’s song, Different Colors. His performance was followed by that of Elizabeth who sang No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley.
Winner gave an electrifying performance of the evergreen song Vulidlela by Brenda Fassie and Mirabel also did not disappoint with her rendition of Whitney Houston’s Where Do Broken Hearts Go.
Pere on his part sang Searching by OJB Jezreel, while Kitay had the audience asking for more as he sang What’s Going On? by Marvin Gaye.
Dapo sang the late king of pop, Michael Jackson’s song Liberian Girl, followed by Okiemute, who was the last on stage and she sang Rehab by Amy Whinehouse.
At the end of the beautiful performances, the Judges decided to put all but three of the contestants on probation. The three contestants exempted from probation this week are Kitay, Okiemute, and Winner.
As such, Elizabeth , Dapo , Eli , Mirabel, and Pere are on probation and face the likelihood of being eliminated from the academy next weekend except they garner the highest number of votes from viewers or get saved by the judges, Faculty or fellow contestants not on probation.
