Before Daisy Ejang takes to the stage on the Tusker Project Fame grand finale this Sunday, this is what she must know; in Uganda, we do not call a certain genre of music “technical” like she claimed we do in the academy.
Actually, we call it “techno”, just like everybody else does, except her. It was embarrassing to watch other East African viewers mocking us online that “it is so Ugandan to call it technical music” after she said in Uganda, techno music “we call it technical.” And boy did our Kenyan pals mock us over those claims during the viewers’ party at Panamera Bar in Kampala.
We just let them be, seems the Tusker beers were working. However, anyone can be forced to forgive Daisy immediately she steps on stage to sing and that is just what silenced our Kenyan pals that night.
Even the mocking comments stopped streaming on screens after her performance. Contestants were doing mash-ups last Sunday, which was this season’s last probation show and our Daisy did Adele’s Rolling In The Deep mashed with Beyonce’s Crazy.
She nailed it. Her performance gave us hope she will win it after Derrick Kojjo’s eviction on Saturday. So, what will stop Daisy from winning it this Sunday? Well, there is Burundian contestant Hope and Amos/Josh duo to wary of.
Those boys are good. The Burundian was exceptional on Trey Song’s Red Lipstick rendition mashed up with Sauti Sol’s Coming Home. Daisy is comfortable doing songs of strong vocalists.
Whatever songs she will do this Sunday, she will have to immerse herself in them with her strong vocals to execute them. We will see how it will end up in Nairobi on Sunday.
Folks, let’s vote Daisy to win this money. To vote online, type tusker.mobi or text on your phone Tusker 7 and send to 8338. Two lucky winners at Panamera Bar went home each sh1m richer after participating in the Tusker lager “Watch And Win” promotion.
