Patrick Nyamitali

Patrick Nyamitali of Rwanda will hope against all odds to beat Burundi’s Hope at the grand finale of Tusker Project Fame next Sunday when the curtains fall down on the one and a half month old competition that is being held in the Kenyan capital Nairobi.


Hope seems to be the only thorn in Nyamitali’s flesh as the talented musician continues to push him all the way. But it was a sad story for the other Rwandan contestant Phionah who was shown the door on Saturday after spending a whole week on probation.


Together with Kojjo from Uganda, Phionah’s grasp in the academy came to a sudden halt after the two failed to gather enough support from voters across the region. It means Patrick Nyamitali is the only remaining candidate from Rwanda, as the race towards the final show becomes increasingly stiffer.


And Hope, according to Judge Ian Mbugua, stands the best chance of beating the other four contestants. The volatile judge seemed all but satisfied with Burundian’s performance that he joked he would, with immediate effect, crown him winner.


In the meantime Patrick continues to woo the public to vote for him in order to stand a chance of emerging winner. His rendition of Smooth Criminal by The Late Michael Jackson was appreciated by the judges, but the audience failed to be totally convinced by his performance.


Patrick’s number in the competition is Tusker 9, which voters can text to +254739966811to give him a chance of winning the coveted cash prize of five million Kenyan Shillings. Online voters can also log on to and choose their preferred candidate.
