From 400 wannabes at the auditions down to nine hopefuls and now four finalists, competition for the three slots allocated to Uganda on the Tusker Project Fame (TPF) show this year has just gotten tighter. Official communication from the TPF academy in Nairobi indicates that Allan Sekiranda, Ivan Kakembo, Sharon Nalwoga and Brian Luzinda are the four Ugandans who have made it to the finals.

These four will battle it out for the three slots to enter the academy while the loser will come back home the day the show starts (June 2). 11 other contestants from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Sudan and the latest inclusion Burundi will join the Ugandan finalists in the academy. The Tusker Lager brand manager, Harry Mwanje, said that the show is once again looking to give a platform to talent young women and men of the East Africa region to showcase their musical aptitude.

“We urge all Ugandans to support our talented contestants for the next eight weeks and hopefully get another Ugandan to emulate past winners Esther and Davis.” The 15 finalists will battle it out for eight weeks culminating in the grand finale on July 29 where the winner be revealed and handed a lucrative recording deal.
