TUSKER ALL STARS COMPETITION HEATS UP
After Tusker All Stars performances in the first week, fans across East Africa have voted for a trio of charismatic male performers as their top favorites so far.
Heart-throb Alpha of Rwanda stood tall at the top with charming Tanzanian Msechu and sensational Ugandan Davis taking up the second and third slots respectively.
Show host Gaetano released the week one voting results during the Tusker All Stars second show that was screened across Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania.
The second show featured four of the eight Tusker All Stars, Msechu, Patricia, Ameleena and Alpha.
Each of the four Tusker All Stars performed two songs - a popular hit single and an original composition. Their fans also got to discover the personalities behind the music at the Tusker Pub where they were interviewed by Eve D’Souza.
Viewers were in for a surprise when the straight-talking Tusker Project Fame Judge Ian Mbugua appeared as a guest. Judge Ian, who has been involved in the formation and shaping of the Stars into who they are today, was at hand to give viewers an insight into the artistes’ performance.
The show started with a bang when Msechu took to the stage with Samba Mapangala's Vunja Mifupa hit song. He gave us a peek into what he had been up to when he sang a moving tribute titled Mama to his late mother.
Patricia performed Foreigner's I Want to Know What Love Is and her own composition, Nakupenda What Not; while Ameleena performed Carol Atemi’s Simama and her up-beat composition, Dance.
Alpha was the last Tusker All Star to take to the stage with a cover of the popular Phil Collins' hit song, Another Day in Paradise, before he closed the show with his bubbly song Love.
Davis, Ngangalito, Caroline and Hemedi will feature in the third show performing two songs each.
Viewers can vote for their favourite artist by sending a text message with the star’s Tusker number to 8009 for persons in Kenya and Uganda. Individuals in Rwanda can vote by sending a text message with the star’s Tusker number to 7333 while for those in Tanzania the number is 15324.
