Barely two days after a new round of family squabbles between PSquare duo of Peter and Paul Okoye, one half of the P-Square music duo, has kicked-off with ‘Dance Nigeria with Peter,’ a TV reality show.
With an hip hop appeal, Dance Nigeria with Peter is touted by organizers as the first Dance Reality TV show that will bring about a whole new dimension to dancing in an exciting display of talents, all wrapped up with suspense and indecision of the judge/ mentors.
The jury comprises Peter Okoye alongside dance Queen Kaffy and Nigerian hip hop dance choreographer, Flex. Evidently, the other half of the twin brothers, Paul Okoye will have no role in the new project, said a source.
According to Peter Okoye, “This show is going to revolutionize the way Nigerians see dance. I am so happy to have on this project the best Nigeria has to offer when it comes to dance. We believe that dance has the power to put this nation on the map. Charity begins at home, so let’s dance Nigeria.”
The competition will be open to individuals from different dance backgrounds, be it solo, group or duet. Auditions will be held in June across four major cities in Nigeria (Jos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Lagos) and also include street battles to make up the final 30 that will move to the competition phase.
Registration of interested candidates will commence in May where applicants/contestants are expected to text to a dedicated short code and a unique code is sent back to them to complete their registration on www.dancenigeria.com.
