TUSKER Project Fame evicted Ugandan contestant Sitenda Kisakye got back in the country on Monday morning still wondering why she was put on the second probation two weeks ago.
“The first probation, I understand. I was not at my best, for the second one, I have still failed to understand why I was nominated,” she said. “I think I performed well Fena’s song and how I failed to cut the grade still beats me.”
The 27 year old was evicted last Saturday in the double eviction after she got the least votes, alongside Kenya’s Fess.
Sitenda says she will not begrudge the Academy and was not about to blame anyone for her eviction when asked if the song selections Judge Hermis and Muthoni selected for them had anything to do with her failure.
“No, I am a musician who is supposed to be ready for any song presented to me. Yes, some songs can be challenging but I am not going to start blaming those songs for costing me in the academy. It is a competition and someone had to be put on probation which happened to be me.
“Judge Ian liked me and he must have been shocked how I ended up getting evicted. It is not about anyone but maybe luck was not on my side,” she said.
She added that she will use the exposure got in the Academy to try outdoor performances since she was more of a church singer before Tusker Project Fame. And when asked whom she thought would win this season’s edition, “everyone” was her answer.
Sitenda’s eviction was the last contestants will be evicted through block voting. The voting system was changed last week and votes will now be tallied just like the past editions’ format.
You can catch Sitenda this Sunday evening at the viewer’s party at Panamera Bar.
