“Vocal delivery must not be sacrificed for dancing during any musical performance. Both must complement each other to have a perfect presentation.”
This was the advice given by Ghanaian International singer, song writer and vocal expert, Bibie Brew, during last weekend’s elimination show of MTN Project Fame West Africa, which saw the eviction of another two contestants; Isaac and Velma from the academy.
This comment was made in the wake of Isaac and Velma’s eviction from the musical academy after failing to secure any of the factors that could save them.
Six contestants -Roy, Yvonne, Princess, Ese, Ethel and Rachel were also placed on probation at the nomination show on Sunday following lack- lustre showings. Two of these contestants will be evicted on Saturday.
Although the Ghanaian vocal expert admitted that all the remaining contestants in the academy are vocally talented and have what it takes to win the competition, she however maintained that what the judges require of them is an exceptional performance that will stand them out.
“There is no doubt that all of you are vocally talented. But what we are looking for at this stage of the competition is not only your vocal ability, but that extra effort that will stand you out among others. We are looking for an outstanding performance that will dazzle us, give us the goose bumps and resonate constantly in our memory. That is what is required of a music star,” she charged.
With eight contestants left in the musical academy, the MTN Project Fame show approaches a crescendo as tension continues to mount among the contestants over who will be evicted next and who emerges the ultimate winner of the N2.5 million, Toyota RAV 4 and multi-million naira recording contract.
