MTN Project Fame in a bid to continuously innovate has done it again! Project Fame now known to create new twists each season, has again introduced to the show celebrity mentors who will personally take on the contestants and give them personal tips and strategies for winning and becoming legendary super stars.
In a surprise visit to the academy last week, six celebrity performers, all with national and internationally successful hits, took over in order to choose contestants to mentor. But it was not going to be easy as they all wanted different contestants for different reasons, so to decide who would mentor who, the mentors turned their backs and listened to the contestants voices only without seeing who was singing. With each celeb allowed only two contestants to choose from out of the 13 contestants in the academy the celeb’s needed to listen well and indicate their choice with a YES card. Two celeb mentors wanted the same contestant on two different occasions.
Who are the mentors this year and who did they choose?
Check out the section process and the first mentor session.
The contestants this year will have a rare opportunity to learn from established brands in music, and develop a relationship that could extend beyond the show. Once again the producers of MTN Project Fame show their commitment to developing young talent and giving them a platform to make their dreams come true.
