Winner of Hitmaker season 7, Okailey Verse, popular known as O.V says she nearly fainted when her name was announced as winner of the season 7 MTN hitmaker music reality show last weekend.
According to her, she was shocked because she believed all the contestants were good enough to be crowned winners.
“I didn’t know anything. I was dumb when it comes to music, so I was learning. I was so shocked when my name was mentioned. I just wanted to die,” she stated.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday, she commended all the finalists for pushing her craft up the ladder.
Asked what special element helped her to scop the crown, she said: “it was just my emotions and the microphone, I just sung and also wanted to have fun.
“I saw everyone as competition, especially Ayeyi. She’s got a very beautiful voice and mine is husky so she was a very big competition for me but was evicted,” she said.
OV at the end of the interview encouraged people pursuing music to use the MTN hitmaker platform if they want to make it.
