Lagos Students Recast Two popular Afro Hip-Hop Princes, Wizkid and Davido, At Nomination Show, Hundreds of students from Yabatech and Unilag were thrilled when the thirteen contestants in the MTN Project Fame academy recast the two most popular Afro Hip-Hop princes, Wizkid and Davido, at the Nomination Show that held on Sunday. With performances that the judges tagged ‘intense and stellar’, 13 hit songs from the gifted artistes rang through the studio and propelled the audience into unusual dancing mood.
The students were seen leaping with rapturous excitements as the contestants took turn to do justice to their assigned songs. These students were part of the studio audiences who have never missed the show since the Opening Gala, three weeks ago. Among them, Oyinye and Kindness, said the show has become their normal weekend hangout.
It started with Clement, who, despite a broken leg, opened the stage with a spirited rendition of Davido’s ‘One of a Kind’. Balanced on the tread of a 3-step stair, the Ghanaian was a marvel and seemed in control of his colourful dancers. He evinced total mastery of the song, and endeared himself to a previously doubtful audience. SEE MORE ON PAGE2
