The stage is now set for the final show down of MTN Hitmaker season 4 and the four finalists are also ready to sing, rap, and break out as they out do each other to grab the ultimate title as well as the juicy GH¢100,000 recording prize package come Wednesday, September 30, at the National Theatre .
The final four- Yaw, Abena, Kidi and CJ, since the competition started have set themselves apart from the pack. Abena, for instance, stole the hearts of the judges with her first performance 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 favourite 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 and caused many especially the ladies to fall in love with him and his amazing voice.
He grew in confidence and perfected the act of performing on stage with passion. Kidi won the break out prize thrice in a row. Will his good looks, voice dexterity, stage confidence and passion be enough to win him the GH¢100,000 prize package?
Yaw is the exact definition of the phrase “big things come in small packages”. He is simply amazing to watch. 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. But for many, his best performance was when he performed his own song, Borla Car. He showcased a stagecraft that was bigger than his size.
CJ is the self-proclaimed CEO of the ‘Fat Boy Era’. Only one word describes CJ-confident. 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 own style to VVIP’s Skolom and when he performed his own song Food Bombers, he definitely justified his inclusion.
The competition is not about only the final four alone, their beatmakers are also in contention for a GH¢10,000 prize package and the bragging rights for being the beatmaker for the winner of MTN Hitmaker 4.
That is not all, the 6 pm show which promises to be thrilling will also feature Tinny, Joey B, Pappy Kojo, among others. MTN Hitmaker 4 is produced by Charterhouse, supported by Oak Plaza Hotel and Huawei and is an MTN initiative.
