The announcement was made on Saturday night by Gerrard Forster, the Head of New Business Development for Sub-Saharan Africa for UMG International, who is also the forth judge in Tusker project fame 5. The 10 track album will be released by the time the Tusker Project Fame's fifth season ends, on 29 July 2012.
The five contestants on probation that evening had to fight for the three slots to make it into the top ten in order to get this chance of a life time. Judge Ian Mbugua advised the contestants who made it to the top ten to prove they deserve the unique chance to see their music recorded by a top music label. His sentiments were echoed by Judge Julianna Kanyomozi who implored the lucky contestants to make the best of the opportunity.
Eunice Guttu, Allan Roy Sekiranda and Nancy Chan were the lucky contestants to be saved from eviction while Tanzanian Damian Mihayo and Fatuma Muhonza from Rwanda, did not make it and had to leave the TPF academy. They also lost the chance to be featured in the upcoming album.
