Globacom has announced that it is sponsoring a Reality TV Show that will raise the entertainment bar in Africa.
The 13-week show tagged “Dance with Peter”, a dancing competition, organised in collaboration with the Africa’s dance emblem, Peter Okoye of the P-Square, is set to change the face of entertainment in the continent and promote the dance culture across Africa.
Unveiling the show at the Atrium, Silverbird Galleria, Lagos, on Saturday, Globacom said that “Dance with Peter” would promote the dance culture among West Africans and assist those who may want to go into the dance profession to pursue their dream.
Promising that the show will be the biggest ever in Africa, Globacom assured that “Dance with Peter” would come “with huge benefits for the participants in the competition, entertainment lovers and television viewers generally”.
Winner of the competition, the company disclosed, would go home with a brand new Toyota RAV 4 with N3million and the special privilege of featuring in P-Square’s forthcoming music video. The first and second runners-up, on the other hand, would go home with a brand new Honda Civic car, N2million and a brand new Kia Rio car with N1million respectively. Both will also have a chance of featuring in a top Glo Ambassador’s music video.
Globacom further disclosed that poster faces in the dance segment of the entertainment industry such as Peter, Kaffy and Flex would feature in the show as judges with Ehis Okoegule of MTV Base as the host.
Cities where auditions for the show will be held include Lagos, Port Harcourt, Benin and Abuja in Nigeria, as well as in Accra, Ghana. The auditions will produce six dancers to be selected by the judges from each location for the real battle in Lagos.
Glo explained that the show would run for 13 weeks, with the first two weeks spent on profiling and auditions, while the next 10 weeks would be for the elimination series which would have different dance themes. The last episode will be the grand finale of the show to be held in Lagos.
