Emmanuel Ankra Kuttinsaid: “MTN moves the world” with Warren Norris laughing “Hahahahaha; very funny. Some dudes really got to check themselves very well before coming to editions.lol”
Fati Yusif opted to go conversational saying “did you guys watched the audition when the Rasta guy was told that his voice was smoky and he replied and said yes I started smoking at 13 but stopped four month ago. That’s funny.”
On Twitter, @ItsNOTCobb who might have been having a bad day noted that “I’ve something to laugh at #MTNHitMaker with Ellen Barnor@Ellen_Bills#mtnhitmaker saying “got me cracking my ribs….I just can’t stop laughing.
Farmhouse Production Chief Executive, Ivan Quarshigah noted that the comments on the two social media platforms showed how nice the first episodewas. He added that this season is actually full of surprises and fans should wait for more excitements.
