MTN Project Fame West Africa drew the curtains on its Season 9 show last night by crowning Okiemute Ighorodje as its winner.

It was indeed a night of joy and tears, and of dreams becoming reality, as the 25-year-old singer took home the coveted prize of N5 million, an SUV and a recording contract worth millions of Naira.

Okiemute performed Phyno‘s hitbanger Fada Fada and her own song Iya Mi for the grand finale of the music reality show before she was announced the winner of the enviable first prize.

Her glorious win comes just a few months after the aspiring musician lost out on a chance to compete and win on Airtel’s The Voice Nigeria.

Okiemute had auditioned on the show in South Africa but she unfortunately received no-turns from the judges and was sent home.

However, the fiery singer didn’t give up on her big dreams as she went straight ahead to audition for MTN’s Project Fame which began about the same time The Voice Nigeria was already airing on TV.
