I’m a novice in music – MTN hitmaker winner, OV

Winner of the recent MTN Hitmaker Season 7, Okailey Verse, also known as OV, has revealed that she came into the competition knowing nothing about music.

According to her, the competition was a perfect platform for any underground artists because it exposes one to different things.

“It’s a very big platform… I didn’t want to come for hitmaker but when I came, I saw that I did not know anything… so I had to learn.” she said in an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM.

OV also acknowledged the fact that, the competition was tight and that every contestant was a challenge to her.

“In my first performance, I lost my voice and it was terrible. I thought I was going home the next week… I saw everybody as competition.”

The new “ruler of the mic” said she hoped to feature dancehall artiste, Stonebowy on her upcoming song.

OV beat three other contestants (Awal Mohammed, Amakye and Erza Tamaa) to be the second female to win the MTN Hitmaker competition after Freda Rhymes.
