MTN Hitmaker selects final 24

With over two thousand five hundred entries from all over Ghana and as far as Nigeria, Sierra Leone and even the UK, the search team who also happen to be the seasoned beat makers, Richie Mensah, Magnum and DJ Breezy were more than elated to see and hear so many talents with one dream – to become Ghana’s next MTN Hitmaker after Kurl Songx who won in 2016.

Ahead of this encounter, the search panel had to meet weekly to listen to and shortlists from the thousands of demos that had been sent in from all over the country and beyond.

The format for this face to face was straightforward and separated the most talented from those who had a lot of help in producing their demos. Contestants were given two chances to perform for the panel after which a decision was made based on nothing but delivery.

From singing to rapping to Dancehall, every act that hit the stage knew exactly what was at stake, hence brought everything they had to impress the panel. But as it is a competition, despite a blitz of stunning display of talents, the judges had to make their cut.

According to all three panel members, the talents that auditioned this year were absolutely incredible and they are upbeat about a swell season as the final 12 could be very difficult to select.

The second phase of the audition was a way for the judges to find that x-factor in the contestants. They were now looking beyond just the talent, but also originality and showmanship. After what the judges termed, an intensive session, they finally picked their final 24.
