For the first time in its six years of existence, Tusker Project Fame has seen all its participants put on probation in a move that will draw more controversy than last week when the house of probation saw no single candidate.
At the time even leading Judge Ian could not really explain why none of the contestants was on the chopping block.
Now on Sunday 24th November, the three-judge bench decided to put all contestants on probation, as drama intensified in the competition. Rwanda’s representatives Phionah and Patrick Nyamitali all stepped up their efforts, and for a moment it looked as though at least one of them would be spared, but the judges’ ruling came as a real shocker when none of the contestants survived the dreaded house.
Phionah’s performance was impressive to say the least, with a rendition of Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s track I am in love with the DJ, and the judges commended her notable improvement. She was full of smiles, but they were agonizingly short lived.
The move to send all contestants in the house of probation has been interpreted by many as a maneuver to try to make up for last week’s gaffe for even among the poor performers, there must be one who is outstanding.
