THIS week’s next big thing went live from the studios of GHone. The challenge for the emcees of the Next Big Thing competition this week as to tell a story in through rap – the story needed to have an intro, body, and a climax. What a challenge that was!
The emcees told stories about themselves, hardships they have experienced, succeeding in the entertainment industry especially if you are a lady.
Other stories like travelling to a strange land and chased out by rebels, poverty, sugar daddies who are out to spoil our young girls and facebook telling a whole bunch of lies about themselves just to get attention. Tee-Phlow’s performance brought tears to the eyes of Okyeame Kwame and commended him for having strong storyline and comic fused together to be rap.
Some emcees had a bad night because its either the judges did not get the storyline or did not see the link between the first and second stanzas. Some also lacked storyline and just rapped for the audience. Another emcee that did impressively well was Strongman who told a story of a football match between Real Madrid and Barcelona in a commentating form. Judges thanked him for educating them on football and even had a chance to know about some football gurus.
On the whole, the Judges were entertained with great storylines, punch lines, good rhyming and timing. Some of the emcees were advised to stick to scripts as that could see them evicted from the competition. Viewers are advised to keep voting for their favorite emcee by texting their names to short code 1758 as the next show will see two emcees evicted from the competition.One can also log on thefb page www.facebook.com/NextBIGThingGH page or the website http://ghonetv.com/nextbigthang/for more information and leave shout outs to their favorite emcee which will be read during the live shows.
