From all the corners of GH, they came to sing, rap and break out. They answered the MTN Hitmaker’s call to action and believed they had the skill, flair, confidence and swag for stardom.
After thousands who auditioned, two rounds of screening, a week of boot camp, weeks of live performances, the stage is now set for the final show down. Who wins MTN Hitmaker season 4?
The top finalists, Yaw, Abena, Kidi and CJ, since the competition started have managed to set themselves apart from the pack. For instance Abena stole the hearts of the judges with her first performance, she set the bar very high for herself and week in and week out she delivered nothing short of their expectations.
When she performed Nicole Mullins’ “My redeemer lives”, she stamped her name all over the finals because she showed a vocal ability that was unmatched. She was hardly ever in the bottom three, as she was break out winner twice and was almost always a break out nominee.
Her amazing vocal range coupled with her sweet personality makes her an instant favorite but is this enough to get her to win the most original talent show in GH?
Kidi also dazzled from the beginning, when he performed Richie’s “When I get you” at the first live performance, he caused many especially the ladies to fall in love with him and his amazing voice dexterity.
Week after week he grew in confidence and perfected the act of performing on stage with passion, perhaps the performance that really shot him into the lime light was his performance of Kontihene’s “Esi”, after that performance Kidi just soared as he won the break out prize thrice in a row after that. Will his good looks, voice dexterity, stage confidence and passion be enough to win him the GHC 100,000 prize package?
He is the exact definition of the phrase “big things come in small packages”. Yaw is simply amazing to watch, I dare say that no contestant has been consistent with their performances as Yaw has been. He started the competition slowly but picked up as the competition progressed.
Many people noticed him after he narrowly survived eviction and came on stage to perform Cwesi Oteng’s “God dey Bless me”. He was phenomenal that night, he finally broke out of his shell and he has been on the rise since then.
But for many his best performance was when he performed his own song, “Borla car” that performance was amazing as he showed a stage craft that was bigger than his size. Will the “kid danger” be able to shake off competition from the CEO of the fat boy era?
CJ is the self-proclaimed CEO of the ‘fat boy era’. Only one word described CJ, confident. That sums up what he has shown to the audience since the competition started. Whether it is performing his own song or doing his rendition of someone’s song, CJ has proved to many that he has a unique talent.
His first performance put him in the spot light, he brought his personality to VVIP’s “Skolom” and delivered what became his trademark throughout the competition, memorable punch lines and when he performed his own song “Food bombers” he definitely justified his inclusion.
But wait, there is one more contestant who got a second chance at a shot of being the next hitmaker. Gunshot re-enters the competition as a wild card. He got a second chance and one last shot at the most original talent hunt in GH. There is something unique about Gunshot, maybe it’s his husky voice, energetic stage performances or the fact that he bears a striking resemblance to self-proclaimed dancehall king Shatta Wale.
But what makes Gunshot unique is that he is probably the only contestant with the best crowd engagement. He has churned out memorable performances week after week and his signature term “horror fuor” is very popular with the crowd. Would the fact that he is the wild card mean anything? Would his crowd engaging skills win him the ultimate?
There you have it, the top finalists ready to do battle for the biggest prize in GH reality TV. But the competition is not about the final four alone, their beatmakers are also in contention for a GHC 10,000 prize package and the bragging rights for being the beatmaker for the winner of MTN Hitmaker 4.
