Deborah and Jennifer have become the first contestants to be evicted from the on-going Project Fame West Africa music competition.
The elimination show is one night that drives home the point of the competitive side of the program. The evening recorded the first elimination of the season, where two of the five contestants that were placed on probation the previous week ended their journey in the competition.
The contestants not on probation opened the show as they teamed up for their first group performance –a medley of Chris Brown’s ‘Deuces’ and Beyonce’s ‘End of time’, which was delivered in flawless harmony.
Tejiri, Richie, Jennifer, Deborah, and Kumi then performed one after the other, for a chance to redeem themselves, and remain in the competition. The Judges and ‘Faculty’ attested to the fact that the performances were much better than the first one that landed them on probation.
In the end, Tejiri was revealed to have garnered the highest votes from the viewers; Kumi was given a second chance by the Faculty, which left the fates of Deborah, Richie, and Jennifer in the hands of their fellow contestants. Eventually, Richie was saved by his colleagues as he had more votes than the rest.
Deborah and Jennifer expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to be on a platform as huge as Project Fame, and they each performed for the last time before they took a bow. Deborah performed ‘Have you ever’ by Brandy, while ‘Best thing I never had’ by Beyonce was taken by Jennifer.
