Exactly 7 years ago, MTN Hitmaker hit tv screens for the first time, forever changing the landscape of music reality competition programming.

With the previous season marking the birth of its first female winner, producers of the reality show announced, a little over three weeks ago, the launch and call for entries for the 7th season of the show. The search for the next Hitmaker had begun!

Kidi, Kuami Eugene, Kurlsongs, Koo Ntakra, amongst others have had their lives transformed after being a part of Ghana’s biggest most consistent music reality TV show, MTN Hitmaker!

Season 6 contestants Yaw Berk, Drew, Krymi and the winner Freda Rhymz are signed to two of the most recognized record labels in Ghana; Highly Spiritual and Black Avenue Music. Yes; such are the perks that come with partaking in and making an impact on MTN Hitmaker.

Having sat every week to listen to and select the best from the thousands of demos sent in this season, CEO of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah, together with talented musician and sound engineer, Magnum and DJ Breezy (search panel and season beat makers) had the rather arduous task of cutting down the numbers to a little over 400 wannabe hitmakers who had an opportunity to meet them one-on-one.

The final level of the audition process will see these 22 at boot camp where they will have various interactions with performance experts, A&R managers, brands experts, voice coaches, etc. all in the hopes of getting them ready for the battle ahead.

A final clash after all the facilitation at boot camp will see the 22 drop to the final 12 who will enter the competition proper.

A swell time is definitely ahead as Ghana prepares for yet another exiting battle of talents only, on MTN Hitmaker 7 dubbed, “RULE THE MIC”.
