The music realty show scene is really heating up with Etisalat & Pepsi’s Idols, Glo’s X-factor and the most popular MTN Project Fame West Africa. All producing winners and grooming local talent. These shows are getting bigger and better each year with more and more money to be won.
With all of them trying to outdo each other it’s a war of talents and shows. However when the dust settles, it’s the viewers, listeners and music-lovers who decides who really wins, as they decide which of the winners eventually becomes a household name and gets the juicy money from brand ambassador endorsements, concerts and performances.
Looking at the show with most awards won by its contestants and by the local street credibility they have developed, MTN Project Fame stands out clearly, with a string of contestants winning both local and international awards. These awards include a Headies(Iyanya) a Soundcity MVA prize, a Ghana Music Award and Chidinma’s Africa KORA award among others. The show itself won four awards at the TAVA Awards in 2011.
