In keeping Africa on the spotlight, Ghanaian CEO, entrepreneur and widely celebrated Actor Derrick Ashong has come up with second edition of Take Back The Mic talent show. The first episode which was held last year saw the emergence of Nigerian MC, Fecko, and Rwandan graffiti artist, Muntu621, and filmmaker ChiChi Nwoko as winners.
The hugely entertaining show allows consumers, who are the actual curators of culture, to determine what’s “Hot” by measuring and rewarding their engagement with content from other up-and-coming artists, rappers and actors-something no other platform does today.
Mr Derrick Ashong who also doubles as CEO AMP Global Technologies, noted that the success from the first edition incited the passion to organise a second season.
“We are determined and committed to help entertainers from Africa connect with the Global world. TBTM launching impacted many lives. The encouraging comments and successful reception from fans motivated us to host another one”, he said.
Mr Ashong added that the registration for the second edition is currently on-going and closing on Sunday, 29th August, 2021, 11pm GMT. He stressed the need for content creators across Africa to download the “Take back the mic app” and register as this year’s edition promise to be totally amazing with extra benefits for the winners.
Iconic Nigerian Us-based music director and founder Aflik Tv, Mr Akeju revealed his excitement partnering with the brand while also making promises to promote the show across digital platforms.
