From Stars of The Future to Mentor, MTN Hitmaker, Vodafone Icons, Nescafe Africa Revolution and to Celebrations, most of us have watched and totally enjoyed musical tv shows.
Our favourite times were the auditions; we would laugh our hearts out. Some candidates were outstanding from the start, while we watched others grow during the shows and others too… well, outright terrible.
Here are some Ghanaian musicians who made it into the music industry through some of such competitions.
- Becca – Mentor 2
Becca quit the Mentor show shortly after being selected to represent the Ashanti Region together with Rose (Tico) and Sandy (Obolo) following her strong objections to an allegation that the finalists, including her, had been secretly tested and cleared of HIV/AIDS without any counselling or prior notification.
She threatened to contact her lawyers to fight the alleged violation of her privacy in court and carried through the threat when the suit was served on both TV3 and the Holy Trinity Medical Centre, where the tests were done.
