MTN Hit-Maker heads to final stretch
Time has flown by quickly and we will soon know which four acts will go for the final showdown in the MTN Hit-Maker II contest.
The competition has arrived at this stage after the eviction of Prizinerz yesterday, leaving Koo Ntakara, Cano Z, Kofi Korea, Nana Adobea and K Bee still battling for the Ghc100,000 ultimate prize.
The remaining contestants, as happens every week, have their pockets of noisy supporters in the audience. Those that come in regulaly to root for various acts have done well so far to heighten the competitive edge of the programme.
The support alone, however, would not snatch the top prize for their favourite person. Public voting and input from the judges are the crucial determinants in who is crowned the MTN Hit-Maker 2013 by the end of this month.
Being the only female still hanging in, Nana Adobea may be getting some sympathy votes for that reason. She has, however, been able to effectively carry her Christ-laden music across. She has been saved twice by the judges.
Kofi Korea came into the show with a lot of experience, having been a fixture on the Tema music scene for sometime. His appearances have been fairly good but he has also been saved by the judges on two occasions.
K Bee is always an energetic performer. He often blasts his way onto the stage with a great deal of zest that sweeps audiences along with him. It is not clear yet how much subtlety he can bring to his act but for now, he seems to be floating into the last four.
Koo Ntakara is said to have developed a huge fan base in places like Kumasi and Koforidua. He appears to be getting into his own and getting more confident with every show.
Cano Z has surprised many with his great sense of showmanship. His acting background seems to be serving him well. He won the Best Performer prize again yesterday, making it three times for him.
‘It is always difficult to predict what he would come up with on stage,’ says judge Bessa Simons about Cano Z.
With these five poised to make it to the finish line, audiences everywhere can sit back for an intense show next Sunday.
Kofi Korea won the Best Dressed prize while his producer, Ephraim was adjudged the best for the week yesterday.
