As the ninth edition of MTN Project Fame continues, it has been all shades of intriguing with electrifying performances from each contestant. Thus, during the week, star actor, Joseph Benjamin decided to add more intrigue to the show by putting up a ‘surprise proposal’ to fellow host, Bolanle Olukanni, after the reinstatement of a contestant who taught her journey in the competition had ended, the night’s show was full of thrilling suspense.
The show began on a beautiful note as contestants performed together as a group for the first time. Clad in denim ensemble with beautiful harmonies in perfect arrangement, the contestants delivered their first group song flawlessly.
The group song was followed by Joseph Benjamin’s spoof marriage proposal to Bolanle Olukanni which made the entire studio erupt in laughter. Moving on to the serious business of the evening, the contestants facing possible elimination — Mirabel, Pere, Solomon, Yusuph, and Winner — then performed again to prove that they had learnt from their mistakes in the previous week.
Eventually, for the second time in a row, Yusuph was saved by the viewers’ votes, and Pere was saved by the Faculty, while Mirabel got enough votes from the contestants to keep her in the competition, leaving Solomon and Winner as the eliminated contestants.
However, after parting words from the two contestants, which was followed by Solomon’s last performance, there was an uproar in the studio with the audience insisting they wanted Winner back in the competition. The judges also decided to bring Winner back using their only lifeline to save a contestant from elimination for this season.
