The five Ugandans who will enter the Tusker Project Fame Academy on Sunday were unveiled during the show aired on Urban TV last Sunday.
They will join 20 other contestants from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan. They would have spent a week in the Academy for training before the main gala night.
But there will be a run-off on Sunday before they enter the Academy, as there are only 18 available places. That means seven will be evicted on Sunday, and the rest will have to perform to save themselves. Below are the 5 Ugandans that went through:
