PROJECT FAME 4 1ST RUNNER UP – ROY FAME RESURFACES.
If you are an ardent follower of the legendary MTN Project Fame series, the name Roy Egekwu should ring a bell.
Roy Egekwu was the first runner up in the 2011 MTN Project Fame season 4 competition. He is a graduate of University of Benin, popularly known as UNIBEN and he studied Education Economics and Statistics.
Roy has been away from the public eyes for a while until early February when he released his first single in a long time titled From My Heart.
We caught up with Roy Fame and successfully carried out a brief interview in order to give you an update on what this talented singer has in the works.
We asked Roy to describe himself in few words and this is what he had to say:
“Roy Fame is a simple individual, who loves God and everyone around him. I love meeting people, and effecting positive changes as I go about my life, though songs and good works as the need arises.”
TM Ng: You have been off the grid for a long while, what have you been up to?
Roy Fame: (laughs) yes indeed, I’ve been off the grid. I’ve been doing a couple of other things, which involves acting and business. But most importantly, I’ve been finding my voice as regards music and the type of songs to sing. I can say that I am on the right path now.
TM Ng: How did the Project Fame 4 in 2011 influence your music career path?
Roy Fame: Project fame was an unforgettable experience for me. While in the house, we were taught how to get comfortable with every genre of music and deliver them accurately. So I will say Project fame broadened my music genre options. Also it is a major platform that God gave me to build upon. And I’m doing just that.
TM Ng: Did you feel discouraged not winning?
Roy Fame: Of course not! Noooo.. I was so fulfilled. Getting into the house, i met a lot of talented individuals so becoming the 1st runner up was a major achievement for me and I am most grateful to God.
TM Ng: Why the sudden come back?
Roy Fame: Hmm… Over the years, after project fame a lot has happened in my life. So I can say that God took me through a process to becoming the man I am now. I had to go back to my first love, to express all that He(God) has put in my heart. Hence the sudden come back.
TM Ng: What influenced the song From My Heart? It sounded really personal.
Roy Fame: Yes! it came from an experience. I will say it’s a change of mindset for me. Before now it was all about fame and fortune. But now the purpose is different…. Its about giving God His place in the affairs of men. So everything I do and every song I sing, is totally for His Glory.
TM Ng: What should we expect next? (Album? Videos? More singles?)
Roy Fame: Exactly! More songs, videos and most definitely an album towards the end of the year.
TM Ng: Should we expect a celebrity feature?
Roy Fame: Of course! and its real soon. So just keep your fingers crossed. I’m already excited about it (laughs).
