Judges of the Globacom-sponsored Reality TV Show, "Dance with Peter", have expressed satisfaction with the quality of contestants, making particular reference to those from Lagos State, whose performances at the auditions were rated most impressive.
Auditions for the show were held in four cities in Nigeria; Abuja, Benin, Lagos and Port Harcourt, and in Accra, Ghana, where over 30 finalists were selected by a panel of judges which comprised Peter Okoye, Don Flexx and Kaffy.
Speaking on the performance of contestants in the auditions, the dance Diva, Kaffy, stated: “So far for me the quality of contestants has been impressive. They have shown they can surely be groomed to be of the high standard we are looking for as we progress in the show”. “Lagos surprisingly impressed me the most. This is because, from my experience as a judge on many dance platforms, Lagos has always had all back no bite as commercial dancing has robbed the dancers of the zeal to work hard at improving their techniques and skill acquisition”. But this time, I feel they were more enlightened and as such have produced most of our finest for the show,” Kaffy observed.
Kaffy's view was shared by another judge of the show, Peter of ,Psquare, who is the organizer of the competition. He noted, “It's been impressive so far and I get motivated by the contestants even as a judge. Lagos for me was the most impressive. The participants gave it their all and I can really see that they are hungry to move to the next level”. Professional choreographer and dance instructor, Don Flexx, also said Lagos contestants impressed him the most.
“Lagos was by far most impressive. I feel maybe because the city is the centre of entertainment, a lot of opportunities to polish their skills are provided there, making it possible for them to upgrade and update their skills when it comes to consistency.”
