Monica wins MTN Project Fame!
After seven long weeks, Monica has emerged winner of the season sensational music talent hunt reality TV show; MTN Project Fame West Africa.
Monica beat five others to clinch the winning prize of a mouth watering recording contract, brand new RAV 4 jeep and 2.5 million naira.
Monica was announced the winner during the MTN Project Fame West Africa Season 4 grand finale aired on national television on Sunday.
Monica’s total prize money is a whooping 7 million naira. She is the second female to have ever won the singing competition following massive votes that poured her way from ecstatic fans.
Roy was 1st runner up. He takes home 1.5 million naira and a Toyota corolla saloon car.
Ethel emerged the 3rd runner up while Ese became the 2nd runner up.
Monica aged 22, says she started singing early in life and has found fulfillment in it. She totally adores artistes like Brandy, Tiwa Savage, Stella Damascus, Asa and Majid Michael.
She is the last born of a family of five boys and two girls and has a go-get-it outlook that perhaps stuck her quickly to her fans.
The journey however isn’t over for Monica. Unlike other budding artiste in the music industry, she needs to take advantage of this victory to launch herself into the industry by recording a hit single. Anything short of this may make her a quick flash in the pan, if the experiences of former winners of such talent hunt show are anything to go by.
