MTN Hitmaker 6 is soon upon us and we can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the wonderful on stage performances and the beautifully voiced talented individuals who would grace the stages.
From the audition stages to the final stage, thrills upon thrills will be expected from the contestants.
The contestants can only serve us with such delightful performances only when their judges sharpen their rough edges.
The judges chosen for the MTN Hitmaker 6 are all music sound producers with much acclaim and awards too. Richie, Magnom and DJ Breezy are the three judges for this year’s MTN Hitmaker with DJ Breezy being the newest judge as Richie and Magnom were on last year’s event together with Kaywa.
Richie, Magnom and DJ Breezy have the tough task of listening to tons of music demos from which they will shortlist applicants for the semi-finals stage of the competition. Here, each contestant will have an opportunity to perform to a dub version of their original tracks for a slot among the 24 who will proceed to boot camp.
After their skills have been sharpened and tested for, the number will be pruned to the final 12 who will enter the competition proper. Each of the music sound producers is to select four out of the 12 finalists and mentor them throughout the competition till a winner is finally selected.
The judges are responsible for ensuring that their charges will give off their best and also tasked with aiding them in song selection, production of original songs as well as performances.
