VVIP, Samini, Kaaki Set For MTN Hitmaker Finals

‘Selfie’ Hitmakers VVIP together with ‘Ronaldo’ dancehall songstress Kaakie and the ‘great’ Samini will be headlining the grand finale of the MTN Hitmaker show. The contest which started with 12 contestants now has five strong surviving singers who will battle for the ultimate prize - a GH¢100,000 recording, marketing and distribution deal. Last week the very talented gospel singing sensation, Mina was the last to be evicted. Mina who is determined to make it in the music industry said she would not give up on releasing her album despite the financial constraints. Grateful to the judges for their support and encouragement throughout the competition, Mina is optimistic the Hitmaker experience will remain with her forever. “I did all I could but I guess it wasn’t enough. I have tried so hard to impress and as a gospel artiste to get to this stage I am impressed. I want to do music professionally. I have been to the training college and the university but music is my passion. I thank God for everything,” Mina said. “It has been a thrilling season so far,” said judge Bessa Simons. “The contestants have shown reasonable talent and we trust those who make it to the final would really be the best four of the lot.” Last year’s winner Koo Ntakara and his runner up, Cano-Z, will also make appearances on stage. Beleagured Kumawood actor and comedian LilWin will also be performing on the night.
