For those who have been marginalized and have not had the chance to contest in any musical reality show in the country due to their age, this is the opportunity for you to showcase your musical talents.
“Kill The Beat: Become a Star” television musical reality show, which will be hitting your screen soon, has five musical categories: Highlife, Hipop/Hiplife, Reggae Dancehall, Gospel and Classical Music.
Unlike the other reality shows in which all the musical categories have been jammed up and as such contestants and the public do not differentiate who sings what song, “Kill The Beat: Become a Star” has separated these categories to ensure that talents in each category is unearthed.
Each of the category will produce its own winner.
To be screened on various TV stations across the country, the reality show aims at unearthing talents not only from the youth who are entering into the music industry but also the aged who may have had such talents but due to lack of opportunity to exhibit them, they may die with it.
This one has no roof sealing for gender and age and as such every Ghanaian is entitled to storm the various auditioning centers to try their luck of becoming the next music star in any of the categories enumerated above.
With “Kill The Beat: Become a Star” reality show, an audio CD with several instrumentals on it is given when a contestant purchase the audition forms. A contestant is to select one of the instrumentals, rehearse with his or her own lyrics before the audition day and then come to the audition venue to perform.
The Chief Executive Officer for Trinity Business Consult Ltd, the organizers of the event, Raymond Koomson, was upbeat about the show.
“Several of these musical reality shows are already being aired on our various TV stations and they are doing well but ‘Kill the Beat: Become a Star’ has come to tackle the challenges that have engulfed those already in session. Most winners in the already existing ones do not come back into the real music industry as commercial products and it is either the judges get it wrong or the people”.
