The sixth season of Tusker Project Fame is on and we look at what’s different, what the jusdges think of the Ugandan contestants and what the contestants think about the competition so far.

What’s new
As we have already know there’s a new co-host. The former Capital FM, Kenya presenter Joey Muthengi is so pretty but is she suited to the task? Well, let’s sit back and watch.

Meanwhile, the new principal of the academy is singer, songwriter and producer, Eric Wainaina.

Making the star
The stage has been revamped with eight cameras and Darryl Senekal, Series Producer TPF 6 reveals that contestants will be attending audio recording sessions from different studios in Nairobi. “We want them to experience what a star goes through and for the first time, we’re also letting the contestants attend radio interviews. This season is more practical,” he adds.

In addition, contestants are also taught the legal side of being a star. Hints are given on how to sign a contract and what to look out for. By the look of things, this season is creating longevity of the contestants in the music industry.

Judges take on the Ugandans
Ian Mbugua: So far so good. This is just the beginning of the long journey but truth is Ugandan contestants are so talented.

Question is, how consistent can they be? Sitenda is my favourite she’s got the right attitude, she’s not shy and boy, her voice is fine.

Juliana Kanyomozi: It is really going to be tough because the Academy is full of people who can sing.

However, right from the auditions I saw a lot of talent out there so it is not news that all the Ugandan contests tonight have made it to the academy. I think they have higher chances of taking the money home.

Hermes Joachim: This season is different, I think it is the most competitive season I have ever seen in the history of this show.

Ugandans are bringing the heat and to me, they are not doing bad, not at all.

Contestants’ general take
Abdul Kakika (Undercover brothers): We have been with these guys (contestants) for a while now but everyone here is good.

The academy has professional teachers so with our raw talent, we shall enhance it and believe me, the money is ours. To all our supporters we won’t let you downt.

Daisy Ejang: I’m so privileged, I did not know I would make it this far, all I’m asking for is please dear fellow Ugandans, pray for us. The competition is stiff but I believe team Uganda is bringing the money home in Jesus’ name!
