Master Isaac Berkai, a 12-year-old visually impaired student of the New Dawn Prep School in Accra, was the toast of the day at the official launch of Season Four of the TV3 reality show dubbed “Talented Kidz”.
Isaac stole the show with the display of his skills on the drums and received a deafening applause from the large audience, which included the two judges; Uncle Benedict Tetteh Yartey and Auntie Amy Frimpong, at the end of his performance.
What makes this season’s show unique is that for the first time, a person with a disability is contesting. In all, 24 contestants are competing in the 13-week competition.
In an address to declare the competition open, Mr Samuel Bonuedie, Head, Corporate Communications and Brand, of the TV3 explained that the programme sought to bring to the fore and groom the talents inherent in children between the ages of seven and 12.
After days of auditioning over 800 contestants, the judges selected the best 24. The season will showcase two of the youngest contestants ever to appear on the show as well as the visually impaired.
