Sunday the October 27saw Phionah, the first Rwandan contestant put on probation at this year’s Tusker Project Fame meaning she will be at the mercies of the voters to rescue her before the next eviction takes place on Saturday November 2.
Phionah’s confidence coupled with a few blunders on stage that include singing off key cost her dearly on a dramatic night, at least according to judge Ian Mbugua.
Meanwhile it was an easy ride for her compatriot Patrick Nyamitali, who impressed the judges with his performance singing “African in New York” that left the three-judge bench more than satisfied.
Patrick has now avoided the dreaded probation for the third week running, and Kenya’s veteran musician and music producer Eric Wainaina who was present at the show only commented on his singing as “perfect”.
It means Phionah will be joining Jennifer and Fess from Kenya and Angel from Tanzania on probation as they await to be rescued depending on how many votes they will garner. The previous night the show saw Michelle from Uganda and Undercover brothers leave the academy after they were kicked out, meaning only thirteen contestants now remain in the house.
But the icing on the cake for the night was provided by Amosh and Josh from Kenya who stole the show, becoming the first performers in Tusker Project Fame season 6 to receive a standing ovation.
