Let’s display the effect of our work by presenting the progress of our 2nd sponsored student in the academy.
Melakyi, is a 16-year-old hip hop dancer. After accepting our workshop scholarship for the hip-hop dance, Melakyi was able to enhance and expose the perfection of his hip-hop talent through the training and live performances passed down to him by his instructor “BHB” (Brothers Helping Brothers).
BHB is not only an dance instructor but he is a soundman and owns his own T-Shirt business as well. For the past 26 years he has produced the annual Hip-Hop Expo which is held at The Columbus Convention Center. The next Expo is March 20, 2021.
Ohio Talent Seekers, Reality TV Talent Competition, our sister, company was the next step for Melakyi to continue his journey. It’s a competition that mimics aspects of all reality TV talent competitions. It’s like a platform for artists to develop their skills. This platform helps the performers to get a taste of the process of reality TV productions. Melakyi is a current contestant in this season’s competition. When performers make it past the first round of the competition, they are assigned mentors which are the judges of the competition. Melakyi picked up Ms. Judy Kyees as a mentor. She is the state director of Ohio and Pennsylvania for the Cinderella International Scholarship Pageant. She is also the owner of Kyees Entertainment Production. Miss Kyees began mentoring and developing Melakyi throughout the competition (which are 5 live shows over a 9-month period of time). She has booked him to perform in many of her pageant circuits throughout Ohio. She also enrolled him in the Arnold Sports World Kids & Teens Expo Classic Talent Competition held at The Ohio State Fairgrounds. He won the competition and received a $2,500 scholarship, a tablet, a 1st place trophy, and lunch with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
It’s a story of persistence, training and elevation. This young man’s journey of success is still being written. What a tremendous accomplishment in such a short period of time. We congratulate Melakyi for his success. Below are some videos of his performances:
