After weeks of hardwork,constructive criticism,tears,joy and laughter the winner of the 3RD Season of MTN PROJECT FAME emerged....The last six contestants – Kesse, Ochuko, Eyo, Tolu, Yetunde and Chidinma lined up after their performances for the night, waiting for the breaking news.
The studio was quiet for few minutes as the voting results were being validated, and then the moment came..... The results enclosed in an envelope was handed over to the hosts and as usual hosts Joseph Benjamin and Adora delayed the announcement, raising the tension even more. Finally DRUMMMM ROLLLLS!!!! Chidinma Ekile was pronounced the 2010 Project Fame star as she was presented the cheque of N2.5m and keys to a brand new Toyota RAV4. She’s also entitled to a recording contract.
It’s the first time a lady is winning the competition and also the third time a Nigerian is coming tops.
Ghanaian singer Kesse Frimpong was named 1st runner up winning- N1.5m and a Toyota Corolla while Eyo Eminue was the 2nd runner up position and went home with N1m and a Toyota Yaris.
The remaining two contestants, Tolu Adeshina and Ochuko Ogbu-Sifo as part of the top six contestants are expected to release a group song, produced by one of Nigeria’s leading producers as well as a video.
