Glo Organises ‘Dance with Peter’ TV Show In Lagos
Dance steps across Africa was the focus on the on-going Glo-sponsored Dance with Peter reality TV show last Saturday with the theme: ‘Afrobeat Street Challenge’, highlighting trending African music and dance such as Azonto, Alanta, Skelewu, Galala, Sekem, Shakiti and many others.
The housemates performed the task using any African music of their choice.
The judges comprising dance choreographer, Don Flexx, dance queen, Kaffy, and Peter Okoye of the PSquare fame coached the remaining 15 housemates. Team Flexx was made up of MX, Yemi, Kevin, T-Rubber, Nekky and G-Extreme; Team Kaffy had Paulette, Messiah, Julius Faktah and Amazing Amy, while Team Peter comprised C-Fly, Miracle, Tee Jay, Da Octopus and Bobby Blankson.
Messiah did DJ Spinall’s Excuse me, T-Rubber performed Koffi Olomide’s Eta Major, Kelvin did DJ Arafat’s Chebele, Julius Faktah performed Toofan’s Orobo and Amazing Amy did Almok’s Gweta, while Miracle performed Toofan’s Gweta and May D’s Ibadi and MX performed JJC’s Motiwa.
Other artistes, who performed are Da Octopus who performed Konga’s Kabaka, Teejay who did Omawumi’s Somori, G-Extreme who performed Lil Keshi’s Gbese, C-Fly who did Cabo Snoop’s Prakatatumba and Nekky who performed PSquare and Awilo’s Enemy Solo.
Stunned by the theatrics of the housemates, who are in a battle for survival, Burna Boy, appearing as a guest judge on the show said MX’s dance skills was incredible, being able to switch dance steps and transit with ease. “That was really good MX, how did you do that. I’m really impressed, keep it up,” he enthused.
Tee Jay was unable to impress Don Flexx who shook his head throughout her performance. He advised the budding dancer to pay more attention to her body movements and rhythm.
“When you began your performance, I was enthusiastic that you would sail through, but you dropped your energy right at the middle and lost concentration.
You also need to watch your movements,” he advised the contestant.
Da Octopus’ performance was exceptional. He kept the judges in awe as they watched him with mouth agape throughout his time on stage. A standing ovation from the judges and audience greeted the lad as he rounded off. Peter who described his outing as mind-blowing advised him to sustain his energy up to the end. “You blew my mind Da Octopus, but you need to maintain that energy with which you performed tonight,” he counseled.
Paulette, Yemi and Bobby Blankson, who were put on probation in the last edition were evicted from the academy having scored the lowest votes from the audience. While Peter Okoye expressed enthusiasm that the evicted housemates had the potentials of becoming great dancers and living out their dreams, Kaffy encouraged them to remain focused, dogged and pursue their dreams as she had been greatly inspired by their determination to succeed.
