He said the telecommunication company has given a lot of young talented minds the opportunity to shine.
Even though Mr Okraku Mantey spent most of his time as a judge on TV3 Mentor he noted that the “MTN hitmaker is unique because they are the last musical reality show to emerge on the scene and already had Kuami Eugene, Kidi, Kurl Songx, to boast about.”
