We have all been living in suspense since the boot camp episode of the MTN Hitmaker 4 was aired last weekend. Most of us could barely wait to see which final 12 had the hitmaker character, to be a hitmaker one needs to be confident, original and basically have the flair, skill and swag for stardom.
After weeks and weeks of auditioning and pruning the 12 finalists who made it out of boot camp were out doored at the National Theater on Wednesday.
It was a charged and electrifying atmosphere; fans of the various contestants had gathered and were chanting and singing as a show of support for their favourite. Whilst some came clad in specially designed t-shirts others carried banners and placards. All those present came to support a contestant and there were not afraid to show it.
When the MCs for the show Peace Hyde and Mawuli Gavor came on, they could instantly feel the energy of the crowd, this energy doubled as the contestants were introduced together with their beat makers.
The contestants will be mentored by the beat makers who also served as judges during the auditioning process; Richie will mentor Oneday, Gunshot, Adjoa and Glory whilst Magnom will mentor Yaw, Awurama, CJ and Colours. The remaining four contestants Kidi, Abena, Efo and Twice will be mentored by Kaywa.
The performances were on point with every contestant determined to make a lasting impression on Akwesi Aboagye, Eazzy and Okyeame Kwame who are the judges for season four of the MTN Hitmaker.
For instance, Colours painted the atmosphere with his coulorful voice and set the tone for what was a lovely night of great performances; Efo also brought his unique style to bear as he got the crowd dancing throughout his performance and Twice brought us twice of everything melodious
The competition is already heated, battle lines have been drawn and the contest for the biggest prize in GH reality show is on! Who wins? Who stays? Who gets evicted? Stay tuned.
Then Abena mellowed the tempo in the hall as she left the audience and judges with no choice than to give her a standing ovation to seal a simply awesome performance. Glory changed the tempo again as he spiced up the mood with three renditions of lovely songs all rolled up in one performance. CJ took the notch a little higher as he turned up the heat in the competition with an energetic performance that left us with memorable punch lines. Adjoa delivered so effortlessly it seemed easy and Kidi’s voice dexterity was simply amazing, so amazing that Okyeame Kwame couldn’t help but give him a standing ovation.
The final three acts for the night did not disappoint, Awurama was simply at home on stage this made the crowd fall in love with her.
