Romeich, who could not contain his excitement stated that things have started on the right path.

“The talent is there, the passion is there, and the entertainment value is definitely there. It’s just for the public to give these trying youths their attention by tuning in every Thursday and voting for their winner. No matter what happens all finalists — win, lose or draw — are winners… it’s a good look,” said Major.


At the end of the competition, the winner will walk away with $1,000,000 and a music video and song produced by Romeich. The second-place winner will receive $300,000 and a feature on a compilation ‘riddim’ from Romeich, while the semi-final runners-up will receive $100,000 each.
