Who Has Registered For Project Fame West Africa 2008? Pls Help.

Hi. For all those who haven't registered and wish to do so the websites are

www.projectfamewestafrica.com or www.mtnonline.com/projectfame/ . For those who have

registered and printed the form, do we have to wait for another email, (apart from the one

sent after applying) confirming approvals of our applications or does our having submitted

an application automatically make us eligible for the auditions? Who has an idea when and

where the Lagos Auditions will take place?

Take care and best of luck.

The show is really nice, however, i would look forward to a better chemistry between Dare and Funmi the presenters and also , the show would do a whole lot more to catch up with the cinematography of the Maltina Dancehall. The show is probably the best i have seen in terms of production quality. I am not for reality shows sha, but i think Maltina dance hall has set a standard.

Hey guys just wanna wish y'all the best of luck and I hope y'all learnt from Danni's mistake. never leave an audition until you know where you stand. Also don't drink too much water on the day of audition cos u might find urself urinating frequently--just imagine feeling like urinating when it's ur turn to perform. So it's better u prepare urself now and just go there to have fun tommorow feeling relax and comfortable. Once again best of luck to everyone of you. Cheeers!!!

Thanks 4 d feedback. Glad 2 know u had a good outing at the auditions but why r things in Nigeria always different? In the US and UK you get a yes or a no on the spot. I hate unnecessary suspense. It makes my blood pressure rise. Men it sucks dat u don't reside in Jos. U could have gone back and made the 15 they wanted. I totally understand ur disappointment. Just don't let ur folks bring u down by saying, We told u didn't we? or sumtin similar. Keep the faith and confidence in urself. I also wanted 2 clarify a few things as follows. One, how many minutes do u have 2 do ur thing in front of the judges? Two, is it first come, first to get number? I hate havin 2 arrive early and being the last 2 get a number 4 d auditions. Three, did u do ur own song or one sung by another artiste? If u can leave a number, please do. So I can call u shud I have further questions. I wish I could hear those you said were extremely good so as 2 know what my chances are. LOL. I pray the audition day wuldn't be my bad vocal day.

so i went outside praying to be called, for close to 3hours nothing, and they were virtually through wit auditionin, so when i didn't get called i left and entered a cab for my 4hour trip back to kaduna, i was so sad and disappointed, cos i know i'm good, i have been singing since 12, spent 4 years in the choir and my first audition flopped, 45 mins into the journey, i got a text, to come immediately to the audition centre and try impress,

, we were also told that when we meet wit the judges, we'll either get a yes or a no, that we're being tested mainly on vocals, but guys wit their instruments can play. i was d 5th to b auditioned, but when i was done, i was told to go and that if they didn't find anyone better, they'd call me, since it was too early to say yes, because there were still so many people to audition and they needed just 15 for the next day's screening,

X factor is sumtin similar 2 charisma. It's largely why people r a lot obsessed with Britney Spears and not Christina Aguilera despite d latter being a far excellent vocalist. Dare Art Alade says we shud take food and drink along as d auditions could drag on 4eva. He also says the main thing is to SING WELL PERIOD! and dat a known song is better as the judge might be familiar with it and relate better. I really advice against playing an instrument if you are just learning one. Ur lack of lustre in playin it could cnst u dearly. Best of luck come Saturday and please keep in touch wateva d outcome. Cheers.

Hello Guys I am a little confused, though.

What happens if you can compose, sing and back up perfectly but can't play any musical instruments?

There just must be a way out! Help please.!

I really wanna thank you guys for the words of encouragement. Although knowing how to play a musical instrument gives you an edge in such an audition, it doesn't determine who will qualify and who will not. All we gotta do is go all out and give it our best shot and the leave the rest to the Judges to decide. For your vocals I have a useful link for you just go to www.vocalist.org.uk. Peace!

, the judges again, which clearly means, they didn't really find all they needed, but i was already on the trip back, so i sent a text 2 d number and told them i was already on the road and that though i know i'm good, next year they'll b blown away, i got a reply, that says, 'the best artistes knw their strenght and weakness, i'm glad u take it well.'

So guys, that was my project fame experience, I'll neva 4get it, I'll keep workin n playin

@ vta2008, what does the 'X' factor mean?

Guys, do you think this project fame stuff was adequately publicized? to think i would have missed it, if not for u guys. That was how i did not hear of auditions dates for idols west africa, till i saw d contestants on t.v.

Pls, if anyone here has attended any audition in d other states, fill us in on how it all went. must we play a musical instrument? i dont want to play cos i'm still learning.

@ Frijos, if you really believe in yourself and you know you stand a chance, then find a way 2 attend without putting your job on d line, like vta2008 said, it's on a saturday. Personally, my folks dont want me 2 go, so i'm transportin myself to Jos, it's gonna b worth, cos even though i'm in d university, music is my life, and this is my shot at it, i've never bin auditioned, this wil b my first n last, cos i will b picked, so good luck to you.

I must say your situation is a tough one and I pray God is with you on this one. It's a tough question but I don't seem 2 get how attending the auditions could affect ur current job. The auditions here in Lagos will hold on a friday and saturday so if u can't make friday, surely u can try saturday unless you have 2 work saturday too. That would definitely suck. Also you work a friend's shift and ask him or her to cover 4 u during d audition period. The most important thing here is faith and answering this question truthful, "Do I have what it takes (vocals, songwriting skills, charisma and X-factor) to mingle with d big local stars eg D'Banj, P-Spuare, 9ice and the international stars?". I'm strongly believe in myself and d only thing that might impede my making the cut is my inability 2 play an instrument though I can sing and write well without one. Best of luck. May the stars align 4 u. Cheers.

Hey guys, to all those who have applied, is this the same mail you received from them afterwards. Just checking

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear *******************,

We have received your MTN PROJECT FAME APPLICATION. Your application is being reviewed, and if all the information provided is accurate and all necessary conditions are met, the application will be processed. Please take the page print out to the clarification centre.

Thank you

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also did anybody here attend the Kano, Calabar auditions? Please leave your number or tell me how the experience was. I would like to know cos I attended the auditions for Star Quest 2008 and it was a total disaster. They lacked organisation and we were treated like animals @ the gate of the Niteshift Colliseum. I finally quit the auditions cos the process was disheartening and I had exams the next monday. I watched the show on TV later and could not believe the judges felt those where the best musical talents Nigeria had to offer. Only a few of them were good in my opinion.

Also to those attending the Abuja and Enugu auditions this Saturday 9th August please kindly fill us in on how the process went. Leave a number if you can.

Thanks a lot guys. Have a fab weekend.

Ciao.

Hi my friend, i registered for the MTN Project Fame yesterday. Registering automatically qualifies you for auditioning so long as you meet the requirement which says you must be an amateur i.e you've never recorded/put out a song/album. The Lagos audition will take place on the 22nd and 23rd of August, 2008. Good Luck!
