List Of All Project Fame Winners And What They Have Been Up To!

Some of the biggest and brightest musicians have come out from the Project Fame West Africa Academy.

We decided to take a deep look at those who wowed audiences across the country getting us glued to our TV sets during their time on the show and what they have been able to achieve since emerging winners.

Enjoy:

1. IYANYA

Iyanya Charming

Iyanya Mbuk was the winner of the maiden edition of Project Fame West Africa. He beat top contenders, Nii and Stupid Song crooner, Praiz to clinch the highly coveted title.

The year after winning the reality television show was a bit tough for the Cross Rivers born artiste but he was able to find his feet with the release of his second album after being signed to Ubi Franklin’s Triple MG record label.

Now, Iyanya is a mega star with a body most ladies drool over and his third studio album which was recently released in September, has been enjoying rave reviews.

He boasts of mult-million Naira endorsements with the likes of MTN and Solo Phones.

2. MIKE ANYASODO

MIKE-PURPLE

In September 2009, Mike Anyasodo who is now known as iMike emerged the winner of Project Fame Season 2, bagging the first prize of N2.5mm, a 2010 Rav 4 and a recording contract.

He went underground for a while but came back later with a bang.

In 2010, Mike recorded a song with award winning producer Cobams Asuquo featIllbliss titled fine fine lady, a song from his debut studio album.

The video was shot by Clarence Peters. He won the award at the SMVA for best RnB Video.

Mike has been struggling to stay in the limelight. He dropped a few singles but not much has been heard from him lately.

3. CHIDINMA

The petite singer and songwriter won the 2nd edition of Project Fame West Africa.

She released her debut album in 2010 and has done collaborations with some of the music industry’s biggest acts including M.I Abaga, Ill Bliss, Sound Sultan and Olamide.

The 24-year-old fondly known as Miss Kedike because of her chart topping single with the same name is performed at some of the biggest events and concerts in Nigeria.

She has received a number of local and international awards and is in high demand to lend her soothing vocals on top albums making waves in the country.

4. MONICA OGAH

The Makurdi born 25-year-old with a voice like an angel dazzled audiences during the singing competition.

However, her music career after the show has been less than impressive as she is still struggling to find her feet.

In August 2013, two years after her appearance on Project Fame, Ogah released her debut studio album, Sometime in August, which featured collaborations with singers Wizboyy andChidinma.

Two years after, not much has been heard from her.

5. AYOOLA

Ayoola has also been on a very lowkey since winning the music contest during its fifth edition. The Kano born soul singer is the first of five children and has been slowly trying to make a name for himself.

Since 2012, he has been dropping a few singles including his debut track since winning the competition, the Legendury Beats-produced “Amin” which also features ace lyricist, Vector.

Following the success of Amin, he later dropped a collaborative effort with Igbo rap star, Phynocalled ‘Ochanya’ with an accompanying video.

6. OLAWALE

ID-650x400

Winner of the 2013 edition of Project Fame, Olawale has been taking his new found fame and fortune in strides.

The fast rising act released his debut album titled ‘Almost Famous’ on September 26, 2014 teaming up with established producers as well as artistes like Lil Kesh, Skales and Tiwa Savage.

Although his album featured some of the biggest names in the Nigerian music scene, Olawale isn’t quite yet at the level of some of his predecessors like Chidinma and Iyanya.

Still, the lad with incredible vocals holds a lot of promise to release something chart-topping in the years to come.

7. GEOFFERY OJI

After winning Project Fame in September 2014, Geoffrey spent the next few months performing at high profile events, establishing a presence in the real world and recording music.

On January 30, 2015, Geoffrey debuted his single, ‘Bursting My Brain’ which was well received by fans and critics alike. He followed this with another single titled ‘Monalisa’.

Geoffrey is currently under a management deal with 960 Music Group courtesy of a partnership between 960 Music Group and Ultima Productions

A year after emerging winner of one of Nigeria’s most promising music talent platforms, Geoffery is still testing out the waters and trying to carve a niche for himself.

8. JEFFREY AKOH

Mr Akoh is the most recent winner of Project Fame West Africa.

The Sound Engineering graduate beat 5 other finalists to emerge the winner of the 8th season of MTN Project Fame with heart melting vocals and a smile that charmed the hearts of many.
