OV Wins MTN Hitmaker Season 7 (2018); beats Awal & others
OV becomes the second lady to win the competition.
OV has won MTN Hitmaker Season 7 held tonight at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Young talented singer, OV has become the second female contestant to win MTN Hitmaker since its inception.
OV, the winner of MTN Hitmaker season 7, 2018 is the first female singer to win the competition. The other female, Freda was, in contrast, a rapper.
In defiance of her impressive staging, she faced stiff competition from equally good finalists Awal, Amakye and Erza, who placed 2nd, 3rd and 4th, respectively.

She takes over from last season’s winner Freda Rhymz.
She joins the list of winners which includes Naterial (Season 1 winner), Koo Ntakra (Season 2 winner), Togbe (Season 3 winner), Kidi (Season 4 winner), Kurl Songx [then Kelvin] (Season 5 winner) and Freda Rhymz (Season 6 winner).
The grand finale which took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Sunday night was hosted by the usual suspects Berla Mundi, and Giovani Caleb.
Judges Eazy and Richie Mensah were generally impressed with the performance of the contestants.
Awal was hugely unlucky as his choice of songs were not “competition worthy” as spoken by one of the judges. Some people have claimed that he was over confident and this led a lot of people not to vote for him.
OV received positive comments from all judges for both performances as her voice and stagecraft were prominent and unsurpassed.
There was also a musical performance from a host of previous Hitmaker contestants including Kurl Songx, Kwami Eugene, Kidi, Freda Rhymz and Drew.
