The Globacom-sponsored Dance with Peter reality TV show will today (Saturday) evict the first set of dancers.
A total of eight dancers who recorded the lowest score from the judges were placed on eviction list after last week’s performance. They include the duo of Captain Z and Mannaseh, G-Stream and Ernest Smiley, Snipe and Tom Tom and Fearless and Rick.
Today’s telecast of the show will reveal whom among the dancers have been saved by the voting public and who will exit the competition.
With “Latin American Dances” as the theme of the show, the 30 dancers were paired up and they gave a good account of themselves which place made it difficult for the judges, Peter Okoye, Kaffy and Don Flexx, to decide on the dancers to be nominated for eviction.
Speaking to the eight contestants on the eviction list, show promoter, Peter of PSquare said that he was sad to see some of them go, adding that the dancers had made him proud. He, therefore urge them to make utmost use of everything they had been taught in the competition.
“Even though you guys are going now, I don’t believe you’re losers. Ensure that you make use of everything we’ve taught you in here, and if you do that, you can even be better than those that are still in the competition,” Peter said.
