Miss Nakeeyat Dramani receiving her cheque

In a competition which has seen rappers or musicians walk away with the ultimate prize, it needed something special from someone with a non-musical offering to scoop the big prize and in the shape of 7-year-old poet Nakeeyat Dramani, a new winner emerged.

The feisty youth rendered a compelling piece on harm done to the environment and need to rectify our ways to stop polluting and degrading the environment to protect flora and fauna.

The TV3 Talented Kidz winner had impressed for 13 weeks with her wit, delivery, poise and alacrity and at the grandest stage before hundreds at the studio and thousands outside, Nakeeyat Dramani repelled seven other finalists to hold sway.

For her prize, the Pank Baby College pupil took home a cash prize of GHc10,000, GHc15,000 educational fund, an all-expense paid trip to the United Kingdom and souvenirs from sponsors.

An emotional and teary eyed Nakeeyat, beside herself with joy and elation eventually put herself together to receive her cheque.

Rounding things up 10-year old saxophonist, Phronesis Nene Kwadwo Sackitey, emerged the 1st runner-up taking home cash prize of GHc8,000, GHc10,000 educational fund and souvenirs from sponsors.

Second runner-up Prince Okyere received GHc6,000 cash prize, GHc8,000 educational fund as well as souvenirs from sponsors.

Rapper and dancehall act, SconzyGH secured the third runner-up place taking home GHc4,000 cash prize and a GHc7,000 educational fund plus souvenirs from sponsors.

In session for the big night, Stonebwoy performed with SconzyGH while Eddie Khae and Kuami Eugene also availed themselves.
