All is ready for the third season of MTN Project Fame West Africa. The highly popular talent competition which has enchanted millions of West Africans begins on the 12th of July, 2010 and ends in October.
The competition which has had two previously successful seasons is once again poised to take raw talents and mould them into music stars. After general auditions, 15 talented individuals will be taken to the Performance Academy where they would be taught how to write songs and perform from the very top professionals of the music industry.
According to the owners of the Project Fame franchise in West Africa, Ultima Limited, â€œProject Fame West Africa is not just looking for contestants with good voices. All students selected for the Performance Academy will be able to sing, perform and play musical instruments or write their own songs.â€
Testaments to the refining abilities of PFWA are Iyanya Mbuk and Mike Anyasodo who both won the 1st season and second season respectively. Today they are among Nigeriaâ€™s most talented and professional singers with Iyanya releasing his critically acclaimed debut album My Story last year and Mike dropping three new singles that have all been met with positive reviews.
