Fred Kyei Mensah Writes: Citi TV Voice Factory 2nd Performance

Life Insn’t Better From My Loyalty To The NPP – Fredyma

I love people who listen to constructive criticisms and improve on their acts. It’s a sign of maturity. Citi TV, thanks for responding to some of my suggestions concerning your programs. I am not perfect but he who often tries to create straight paths doesn’t know how crooked some of the routes may be.

This week brought a lot of improvement in some of my suggestions i mentioned last week. The piano tone, SPD drum settings and the sound was generally good. The band is good!


They never disappoint with their judgments. Very professional and knows what they say. Okyeame Kwame, Kaywa and our beautiful lady Edinam, added spice to the program however, I was a bit not too comfortable with the comments Kaywa made on Debbie. It was too harsh for me. We know we have to keep the contestants on their toes but, we should also consider their situation. I don’t know whether they are being camped for them to go through those vigorous rehearsals required of most music reality shows. The judges can moderate their judgments without demoralizing them. Also, they should make their comments as snappy as possible. Congrats judges!



Araba top my list of finalists in the competition provided her votes support her. She is the eye of the competition. Very focused. Her performance was tight.

Ayjay Sam started the day on a good note but there was humming in his sound. Check cables next time my technical handlers.

KennieKings had a good performance but should watch his microphone techniques.

Debbie was cool with Jailer by Asa. She made the song her own as was ably captured by Judge Okyeame Kwame and Edinam. Kaywa was ruthless with his comments.

Charisma was the second-worst performer. He had a very nice costume but failed to deliver on his keys, pitch, microphone techniques, vocals, etc. He was screaming.

Voice Factory Contestants Unveiled

Cleck Boyson was the most disappointing contestant for me. Bad start, key down, disjointed performances and to cap it, his feminine antics on the stage. Boi! Lol! He was good last week too ooooh. Let’s see.

Oye struggled with her low notes but had an ordinary performance.

Lina had good microphone techniques. She had no dynamics in her performance and was screaming. She is beautiful ooooh. Lol!

Red’m redeemed himself from last week’s performance however he sounded nasal in his vocal delivery.

Idara was my second best performer for the night. She was my worst last week. She is beautiful too.



It’s getting better however, those strobe lights should be directed at the contestants not we watching at home. Can’t we have the stage background pictures from any of our landmark buildings and streets in the country rather than a night street experience from a foreign land? The marketing team can make some money from there if they use shots from certain uniquely related concepts. Eg. Stanbic Heights Building, Airport City and ask them to pay.


Let the few studio audience be branded in certain products T-Shirt, Polo shirts, baseball caps and call some of the performances night say, Strong energy night, beta malt night, Awake water night, etc for those non-competitive brands to Beta malt to come on board and sponsor. Watch the current Big Brother Naija how companies are rushing to sponsor. Betting companies are there looking for business ooh. Look sharp, Citi Marketing Department.


Kudos Citi TV’s Studio Manager, Jimmy Quist.

Kwame Dadzie, let your people hear this.

Bring my fair share of the common fund Samuel Attah-Mensah. Lol
