After 8 weeks of intense training and breathtaking performances, the battle for the ultimate prize in West Africa’s biggest music talent hunt competition, MTN Project Fame Season 8.0, finally ended with Jeff emerging the winner. With his emergence, 18 year old Jeff has become the youngest winner of the competition since inception.

Jeff was not the only winner of the night. Sultry voiced Pearl, who was voted the 1st runner-up in the competition, went home with a brand new Saloon car and a sum of 3 million naira while Anderson went home with a brand new Saloon car plus 2 million naira as the 2nd runner up. Delta State born Ada walked away with the sum of 2 million naira after emerging the 3rd runner-up. Arewaand Deinde, who were voted 5th and 6th respectively, got N 1 million naira and 500,000 naira.
Unlike previous seasons where contestants performed their original compositions during the grand finale, Season 8.0 came with a twist as each of the contestants collaborated with A-list artistes to produce a remix of the latters’ hit songs. 

 Jeff paired with Yemi Alade to remix her song “Kissing” while Pearl worked with Chidinma to remix her hit song “Kedike”.  Anderson and Praiz did a remix of his song “Rich and Famous”. The Kukere master himself, Iyanya, collaborated with Deinde to remix an entertaining version of “Oreo”.  Arewa and 9ice did a remix of the hit jam “Gongo Aso” while Ada and Sound Sultan did justice to Sound Sultan’s “Motherland” to the delight of the audience!

While the show may have ended on a grand note, music lovers have a chance of relishing the experience as the official release of the amazing collaborations has been fixed for October. The collabos are also available for use as callertunez. Simply send your preferred songs to the code 4100.
