With 6 exceptionally talented contestants going head to head in duel battles, the season premiere did not fall short of fans exceptions. With the likes of Sonia, Joy, Augustine, Shapeera, Henry and Philip battling it out on the exquisite stage, Philip emerged the man of the night.

With a blend of genres from Michael Jackson, Praiz, Yemi Alade, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley and many more, the 101-jury members had a hard nut to crack during decision rounds.

Philip Otuya who charmed the audience singing The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson, excited the ladies with his outstanding rendition of Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers and re-affirmed his strength as the best of the crop with Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry earning himself a well deserved spot in the semi finals.

    All these competitions and dia fakeness. Let me land before you guys eat me. People dat audition for the competition are not people dat go for it. I went for the auditions here in lagos and was even the 1st gal to perform but before I could even opened my mouth to sing, one of the judges ( they were three-one bulky black guy, a white guy and another guy) said “thank you” and within the space of 5mins about 25 people have been sent out. Its only Project Fame dat I can give some credit to. but u see d others, Blah!!!!!

      You are absolutely wrong, why so bitter though? My friend auditioned for the same competition and was selected for the show, The selection process i hear was very tough, only strong vocalists were chosen. I guess you now know why you were not chosen. No hard feelings. This is a great show, if una see better thing make una dey happy. Maybe next year is your year.
