    how come there are soo many nigerians in the competition. why is it not balanced at least. imfact what went into the selection criteria. to me i think is nigeria mtn project fame and not the so called mtn west africa p.f.

    SO WHAT I HERD ABOUT LIBERIA AND SIERRA LEONE NOT BEING PART OF THIS YEARS’S PROJECT FAME IS TRUE,WELL I JUST THOUGHT NIGERIA WAS A VERY GOOD COUNTRY WITH LOVING PEOPLE,BUT I HAVE NOW COME TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE NOT DIFFERENT FROM GHANA WITH THEIR SELFISHNESS,WE DID NOT ASK FOR EBOLA TO COME TO OUR COUNTRIES SO TO BE KICK PUT OF A COMPETITION THAT HAS BEEN UNITING US ALL,AND JUST BECAUSE OF SOME DISEASE THAT HAS NO CURE WE HAVE BEEN TREATED UNFAIRLY,SO I HAVE COME TO THINK THAT NIGERIANS THINK NAIJA IS THE SAFER PLACE TO BE IN THIS WORLD WITH ALL THE KILLING THAT BOKO HARAM HAS BEEN CARRYING ON WE DONT JUDGE Y’ALL BECAUSE WE THINK ITS SOMETHING THAT IS BEYOND JUST ONE COUNTRY..I AM REALLY HURT THAT MY COUNTRY LIBERIA IS NOT REPRESENTED………..ALL THE SAME WE ARE STILL ONE

      did you watch the audition in liberia, you should watch it. Moving forward , if project fame wants to involve other countries they should do it rightly, increase the auditioning centres in order to reach more people

    Because of the outbreak of the Ebola disease in some part of West Africa, They had to restrict movement of people in this area from coming here in order to curb the spread of this disease.

      July 21, 2014 at 12:38 pm

      WILL YOU SAY BECAUSE BOKO HARAM IS IN NIGERIA WE SHOULD STOP OUR PEOPLE FROM COMING TO YOUR COUNTRY??? WELL EBOLA IS HERE IN LIBERIA GRANTED,BUT ITS NOT EVERYONE THAT IS AFFECTED WITH THE VIRUS SO THIS YOUR POINT IS NOT IN THE RIGHT ORDER #Kehine

    I think there is still a chance for Liberia and Sierra Leon to be represented in this season 7th edition. We are all used to it been 18 contestants, but now we have only 16 contestants in the Academy. Therefore, I think They are making arrangements for both Liberia and Sierra Leon to be represented this year 2014. At least one person each from both countries. They can be auditioned either in Nigeria or Ghana where is it Ebola free. There both Liberians and Sierra Leonians in both Nigeria and Ghana. I am sure the heads are working out on something. let’s just hope.

    Since from the begining of project fame west Africa as they term it to be,is never what it meant at all because Nigerians only wins this program and I think it better to name the program Nigerians project fame.we r sick and tired this yr if a Ghanaian dnt win then you people are not truthful cus honestly the two Ghanaians r fantastic.

    This is so disappointing. This does not represent west Africa. You have over 13 persons from Nigeria and you are proud to stand on stage and say Project fame west Africa.. Bravo to you.. This is real unity.. There are no talents from the other west African countries.. There is no meaningful reason to justify your bias attitudes.. Once again bravo…
