Phone And MTN Credit Wont Help My Music Career In Any Way – Awal blasts MTN Hitmaker Organisers
The 2nd runner up of the Seventh edition of the MTN Hitmaker, Awal Mohammed, has fired shots at the organizers of the talent hunt event in an interview.
After failing to make it under the umbrella of rapper Sarkodie, Awal Mohammed gave his career a second thought by joining the 7th Edition of MTN hitmaker.
By grace, Awal’s descision to join MTN hitmaker reality show did some magic for him as he was able to find himself in the final four contestants. Although he couldn’t win the ultimate prize for obvious reasons.
Regardless Awal is convinced beyond doubt that at least the organisers could have maneuvered their way to get all the finalists some convincing packages but things didn’t go as expected. Awal was only given a smartphone and airtime whereas all the juicy package was given to the overall winner.
It’s in this light that the young rapper has schooled organisers of MTN Hitmaker to do better next time. According to Awal in an interview with Andy Dosty, he believes that all the final four contestants of the reality show worked hard to get to that stage so it will be unfair when the winner is the only one carrying all the prizes away.
“All the four contestants accords prizes that will help them run their music career. The judges believe that the top four finalist have the most potential but at the end of the day it’s only the winner who gets all the prizes that of which is very very not good. How can a phone and credit help my career?”, He quizzed.
Not-forgetting, Awal emerged as the 2nd runner up for the 7th edition of the just ended MTN hitmaker but he has shown a gross displeasure in the smartphone and airtime given to him as a prize because it’s something that can’t add any value to his music career.
