Uganda Set To Lose Tusker Project Fame Race
Following the sudden eviction of Burundian Pacific Gachuri on Saturday, the contestants had to bring their best to the stage in order to survive Sunday’s probation.
Luckily for Rwandese Jackson Kalimba, he did not have to sweat and shiver for he was saved by the music faculty and given immunity.
Immunity meant that however crappy Jackson sounded he was free from probation. According to the faculty, the decision on who got immunity wasn’t based on the contestants singing ability but their discipline and willingness to learn.
Some of the contestants were down on luck, Doreen Nyawira from Kenya was put on probation for indiscipline - apparently something to do with misusing her mp3. Doreen who just survived eviction a few weeks back almost broke to tears when Judge Ian trashed her performance.
Uganda’s Sharon Nakhioga and Allan Roy Serinkinda did not get good remarks from the judges too.
Sharon mimed Jackie Chandiru’s Gold Digger but was criticized by the judges for dancing too much and forgetting to sing.
Judge Juliana was not impressed as well and said she felt like she did not make the song hers and all she could hear was Jackie’s rendition and not Sharon’s.
Allan too did not get any good remarks from the judges.
He was told that his vocals weren’t good enough and that he was off key at some points of his presentation.
Despite this, the faculty and the vocal teachers defended Allan and told the judges that they had to give him a break considering he had been fighting a cold all week.
For some of the contestants it was only smiles as the judges applauded their presentation.
Gorgeous Samantha Nizeyimaana from Burundi is one of the contestants that seemed to have swept the judges off their feet even the very usually harsh Judge Ian was all smiles.
”You are good for the eyes and the ears,” said Ian.
Other contestants who got positive remarks from the judges included Nancy Chan from South Sudan, Joe Christian Irankunda also known as Big Joe from Burundi, Ruth Matete from Kenya and Fatimah Muhoza from Rwanda.
This week they are five contestants on probation and one of them will be leaving the Tusker Project Fame Academy.
Allan and Sharon, the only representatives of Uganda face likely eviction.
Others include Doreen Nyawira from Kenya, Imani Lissu from Tanzania and Mer Anyang from southern Sudan.
To vote for Allan SMS Tusker 5 to 8009 in Kenya and Uganda and to save Sharon, vote Tusker 4 to 8009.
