MTN Hit-Maker showdown begins

The real showdown as to who emerges winner at this year’s MTN Hit-Maker music talent contest starts on television this weekend with the naming of the 12 finalists.


They  are Sam B, Anji, Fameye, Ink (duo), Leety, Mina, Mac-M, Snow B, Torgbui, Papa, Naba and R Tay.

Some of them have fair amounts of experience as singers in church and on other platforms but others are also completely new to public exposure.

All the same, each of the 12 sound confident of  emerging winner and claiming the ultimate prize of  a Ghc100,000 recording deal by the end of the contest.  

The first stage performances of the selected 12  will be shown  on Saturday,   October 4 on TV3, eTV, GH One and 4Syte TV  from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. 

 The programme will be repeated on  Sunday, October 5  on Metro TV and Multi TV’s  Cine Afrik channel from  7.00pm to 8.00pm. 

The judges for the contest are  Bessa Simons, Ofie Kodjoe and Hammer of the Last Two. They have said that  the 12 chosen young artistes had  displayed enough talent to warrant inclusion in this year’s contest. 

 “It was not smooth-sailing for them to get selected. They had to work hard to prove to us that they deserved to be heard by the public this year,” said Bessa Simons.

This year’s contest has the tag line of  ‘Dream It, Live It.’
