MTN Hitmaker 2017 makes 1st eviction

It all came down to the D-day as the final 16 who after weeks of going through various audition stages and intense training, had their first ever live performance with a live band on Tuesday 12th August at the National theater.

The final 16, D Forina, Fati, Shadey, Freda, Drew, Josh, Krymi, Kwesi Taadi, Veana, Evey, Xali, Yaw Berk, Qwo-djo, Nana Addo, B.ryt and Gilda battled it out as they were paired to perform to the judges, the studio audience and the general viewing public in a bid to impress them (the judges especially) to guarantee them a spot in the next stage of the competition.

The judges for the 6th season who had the sole task of determining who makes it through and who leaves the competition, television and radio host Caroline Sampson, celebrated award winning music producer Kaywa and finally, entertainment critic, Francis Doku were present, ready for a night of great display of talent.

When asked by the host of the show, radio/television host, Berla Mundi and Giovani Caleb their expectations for the night, as it was the first time they were meeting the contestants, the judges said they were very hopeful of an amazing season.

After all the 16 contestants have had the chance to perform, the judges, after careful deliberations decided that it was Gilda, Nana Addo, B. Ryt and Veana who did not impress them enough, hence were evicted from the competition. The beatmakers, Richie Mensah, Magnom and DJ Breezy were invited on stage to ballot for the 4 contestants each out of the remaining 12 that they will be working with throughout the competition.

Magnom mentors R&B singers, Qwo-djo and drew, rappers, Kwesi Taadi and Yaw Berk as DJ Breezy takes on rappers, Freda and d Forina, R&B singers Evey and Josh. Richie, for the rest of the competition, mentors, R&B singers, Fati, Shadey and Krymi, together with reggae dancehall act, Xali.
