Social media users lash out at Abiana for rudely rejecting a contestant at TV3 Mentor Audition

Award-winning Ghanaian female vocalist, Abiana, has topped trends over a video that captured her going hard on a young singer who auditioned for this year’s music reality show, Mentor.
Abiana, a co-judge with Dancehall musician, Epizode, cut short the performance of a male singer who was exhibiting his talent in hopes of making it through the auditions stage.

“You are out, out, out, out,” the female judge chanted while slapping her hands.

The singer whose performance had been cut short couldn’t believe his eyes when a voice called in the next person, forcing him to leave the room.

Some social media users, including music industry insiders, have called Abiana’s move “harsh.”

They noted in their numerous posts and analyses that she could have at least given the singer the opportunity to perform a few lines from the song he had chosen – KiDi’s hit single Mon Bebe’ – instead of sending him away without due process.

Others cited Abiana’s recent interview with Nana Ama McBrown on United Showbiz, in which she confirmed that a comment made by Mark Okraku-Mantey, a former Mentor judge, weighed on her, though she used it to improve her craft.

Mark used to be known as the “meanest” judge on the reality show due to his candid criticisms.
“What Mark said weighed me down. I never went for an audition after the incident, for over two or three times. I had to go home, learn, and better myself for the next audition.
“Sometimes we should take critics in good faith. We should work on ourselves and come,” said Abiana as she shared her experience during her auditions for Mentor some years ago.
