TV3’s Mentor has stormed back after years of hibernation with a new brand and different aura altogether.
However, before the new show takes off, the organisers have to deal with what looks like a dent being smeared on their reputation by a former winner, Akos, real name Roseline Akosua Mantey.
According Akos, the organizers of the show failed to honour their promise as regard the prize they have to give her.
According to her, even though she was given 7,000 cedis and a car, the recording deal which was the main prize never came.
In an interview with My FM, Amos said she doesn’t talk about it anymore because the last time she did she was labeled as a bad person.
“Oh yes I was given an amount of 7,000 cedis and a car but the contract or record deal never came and anytime I talk about it I’m at the front page. Not that I hate them, NO but you see when there’s something you have to talk about you just have to. I’m not saying they haven’t done anything for me at least they gave me that exposure but the fact that they didn’t fulfill the deal is bad,” she said.
She also added that after the exposure they give what is needed to keep you isn’t given, then there’s no reason for giving that exposure.
“Mentor is music, and what makes you after mentor is not the car you are in or the 7,000.00 given you but when they put you in a studio, record you, shoot a video and you are out there making it, that’s the benefit of going to a reality show. It would have been better if they fulfilled that recording deal without giving me a car or that money, I would have worked hard to get myself that car and amount,” she added
