TALK of six contestants, six performances, four of them saved by the judges and viewers alike, and two kiss the house goodbye! It was a tearful moment on Saturday night, November 4, in the Tusker Project Fame.
House when Ugandaâ€™s Tony Rodman and Kenyaâ€™s Christine Apondi had to leave the academy. In a smaller stage set up near the houseâ€™s jaccuzi, the six contestants on probation had to perform one by one.
And as Christine, Francis, Tony, Linda, Tina and Cedric performed in that order, the Tusker Project Fame viewers watching the show live across East Africa and the three judges Ian, Joy and David, had to make the â€œhard decision of eliminating two contestants,â€ as the judges would put it.
There was also a change! Sheila Mwayigha was this time the showâ€™s host, and as she paved way for the judges and teachers to comment on each performance, the show became more tense! Viewers were allowed to save only one contestant, who happened to be Kenyaâ€™s Linda Muthama, according to the votes.
She not only impressed the live audience at the house and viewers across East Africa, but also the judges and teachers. Judge David Muriithi, who represented the rest in this performance, said the performance â€œwas cool, and better than the previous weekâ€™s.â€
Dance teacher Ian Wainaina echoed Davidâ€™s remarks and added that Linda connected well with the audience during the performance and covered the whole stage.
