Rapper M.anifest, also known as Kwame Ametepe Tsikata, has been selected as one of the judges for this year’s edition of the Vodafone Icons music reality show.
The 2013 ‘Best Rapper of the Year’ at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards will join radio presenter Ms Naa and singer Gena West as the main judges for the 4th edition of the realty show dubbed ‘Vodafone Icon Remix’
‘I am looking forward to some of Ghana’s musical gems being unearthed this season. Icons Remix is a magnificent opportunity for young promising voices to be seen and heard on a huge national platform. The remix idea is a fine one as well; it will encourage young talents to bring their own creativity to live instead of copying,” M.anifest stated.
Gena West, who returns as a judge for the fourth consecutive time, stated that it feels good to come back with another opportunity to find more talent in Ghana.
‘Everything that we’ve done well in the past is going to be done better. It’s the Remix Edition and we’ve remixed our panel of judges, we’ve remixed the way we audition contestants and there’ll be lots of surprises along the way. We are looking for someone with real star quality and I, as usual, will not sugar-coat my opinion or mince my words,’ she said.
Ms Naa, who also returns as a judge for the third consecutive time, stated that the judges have their work cut out.
Vodafone Icons, which started in 2010, has produced amazing singers including Afro Rock singer Noella Wiyaala, RnM, Black & Peach and Ryan.
