This weekend artists from Ta’di and Tema competed to win GHC 20.000 worth of prizes and the opportunity to go on tour with FOKN Bois, Yaa Pono and Efya. Ta’di and Tema have proven to be more than ready for the opportunity when over 50 young aspiring artists showed up with their swagger on and their CD or pen drive in their pockets. Next weekend artists from Kumasi and Accra will have the same opportunity.
The artists that made it to the next round of Big in Ghana, sponsored by Bavaria, stood out in originality and are ready for the big stage. None of the artists have failed to entertain the judges. “judges encourage all of the artists that didn’t make it to the next round to continue what they are doing. Failing this time brings them one step closer to succeeding in the future.” said Panji Anoff of Pidgen Music.
The talent hunts were hosted by representatives of Ta’di and Tema with Naa Ayorkor (Radio Paragon) and Yaa Pono showing their support for the up and coming talent in their towns. ‘Macho Rapper’, Jony Blaze and ‘silent rapper’ even surprised the audience with some freestyle madness in Tema.
The diversity of the winners is striking. Ato Mankind (Ta’di) has a strong voice and an impressive flow. King Lucas (Ta’di) kills the stage with his low voice and freshness. B-Brain (Tema) is a singer songwriter that charms the audience with sweet songs whereas Ohene Amoako shines with incredible and flawless freestyle skills.
Next weekend the Big in Ghana Talent Hunt continues at 1pm sharp on Saturday the 11th of August in Rexmar Hotel, Kumasi and Sunday the 12th of August in Apollo Theatre, Accra.
