Dance with Peter- Bring crew and show what you have to offer.

The Abuja auditions for the much-publicised Dance
with Peter, has produced six winners.
The event held last Friday, as kick off of the Glo-
sponsored reality show in collaboration with Peter
Okoye, the one-half of P-Square.
The successful candidates are a 24-year-old
professional dancer, Yemi Afolabi Osokoya; a 21-
year-old National Open University undergraduate,
Miracle Chinonso Nelson, and a female architect,
Mariam Ahmed.
Also, among the finalists are male dancer, Ibrahim
Afeez Abiodun, female dancer Amenze Blessing
Omoregie, and an all-male dance group called
ElevatorzNg, made up of five Theatre and Cultural
Studies undergraduates of Nasarawa State
University. The members include Atuonwu
Samson, Kelvin Anyaruoh, Jekeygreen Emmanuel,
Michael Atuonwu and Godrich Olokor Ogenebroze.
All six finalists are expected to proceed to Lagos
where they will battle contestants from other parts
of Nigeria and Ghana for the grand prize of a brand
new Toyota RAV 4, N3 million and the rare
opportunity of featuring in P-Square’s next music
video.
The first and second runners-up of the dance
project will go home with a brand new Honda Civic
car with N2million and a brand new Kia Rio car
with N1million respectively. Both of them will also
have the chance to feature in a top Glo
Ambassador’s music videos.
Over 200 individual and group dancers, male and
female of various ages slugged it out at the Musa
Yar’Adua Centre venue of the Abuja audition of the
dance competition.
Attracting great attention at the Abuja audition was
a nine-year-old Divine Uche, who narrowly
emerged with a qualifying ticket at the audition. He
performed solo, executing mind-boggling stunts
and winning himself a standby slot, which he
inevitably yielded to more experienced dancers
much later in the night.
On the judging panel were Peter Okoye, a
Globacom ambassador and one of Nigeria’s most
famous performing twins, PSquare, Dance Queen,
Kaffy, and P-Squares’ choreographer, Nonso more
popularly known as Don Flex.
The audition train is expected to next move to
Accra for the Ghanaian leg holding at the National
Theatre, South Liberia Road, Accra, today.
Organisers say this will be followed by Benin, Edo
State, next week Friday, at the Oba Akenzua
Cultural Center, Airport Road, Benin City. Lagos is
next in line on Tuesday, September 8, at Bamako
Studios, 1 Bamako Street, Ojodu, Lagos.
The final audition for “Dance with Peter” will be
held in Port Harcourt on September 10 where
prospective dancers in the show will be auditioned
at the Atrium Event Centre, Stadium Road.
Organisers say those who want to participate in the
show can register by sending ‘DANCE’ to the short
code 55517 in Nigeria and 3030 in Ghana through
their Glo lines, at the cost of N100 for Nigeria and
0.5GHc for Ghana.
