(VIDEO) Davido v. Wizkid Week: Project Fame West Africa TV Contestants Perform DAVIDO and WIZKID Songs


What a shift and a good one at that, AML artists, to see your works emulated in your own countries on music reality tv shows. It used to be our music reality tv shows wanted to and predominantly emulated musical works of primarily American artists. We’ve come a long way.

The videos below look good. I also like that the performers were suited up in costumes to match the feel and delivery of the songs.

I hope Project Fame TV obtained the necessary clearance rights. We’ve seen artist Paul Play sue African reality TV show(s)/networks for copyright infringement for playing/performing his songs without consent. Check out the performances by this hopeful contestants below.


Project Fame West Africa is a regional music talent reality TV Show produced in Lagos Nigeria and aired across West Africa. The show features contestants from Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. Auditions are conducted in these four West African countries to select a total of 24 contestants who then advance to the next stage and converge in Lagos, where the judges will weed off 6 contestants, leaving 18 to advance to the semi finals. From these 18, only 15 will advance to the Academy where they will be drilled and trained in the art of music for weeks.

The show runs for a total of 10 weeks, during which one contestant will be evicted every week for the duration of the show. One winner will emerge and win the star prize, while first and second runners up go home with consolation prizes.

Project Fame West Africa is sponsored by MTN Nigeria and produced by Ultima Studios.
