As five more contestants get evicted
The five contestants evicted from Dance with Peter on Saturday, L-R: T’jark, Prince Ajayi, L’Dee, Tom Tom and Neon.
Five more housemates have been evicted from the on-going Dance with Peter reality T.V show, sponsored by next generation network, Globacom. Their eviction followed a very competitive outing among the remaining 26 contestants.
Tension was rife in the house as the second eviction edition commenced. MX, Tom Tom, Neon and Prince of Team “Get Squared,” Mannaseh, Smiley, Paulette and Weezy of Team “Personally,” and Tjark, Yemi, L'Dee, and G-Xtreme of Team “Roll It” had been put up for eviction last week, but reprieve came their way as the judges comprising Peter Okoye of PSquare, Dance Queen, Kaffy, Dance Choreographer, Don Flexx, and M.I who made a guest appearance, gave them another opportunity to prove themselves.
The focus on this week’s edition of the reality T.V show was the Hip-hop genre. Before the contest began, the judges explained the concept of Hip-hop and why it was the focus for the week. They also advised the contestants on what is expected of them during their performance.
One after the other, the contestants stepped on stage to show what they had learnt from the Academy. They all performed a melodramatic dance style thrilling and stunning the audience. At the end, even the judges found it difficult to decide who to send packing.
Peter Okoye was so impressed that he undertook to feature the trio of Prince, Julius Fakta and Tjark in his next music video. He said, “ I’m just speechless, You guys are just fantastic. You know what? You guys will feature in my next video.”
After a careful and thorough collation of the votes, the judges re-appeared on stage to give a verdict. One could hear the heartbeats of the contestants as Ehis, who anchors the show, announced the evictees.
Unfortunately, Ambrose Idemudia (TJack), Prince Ajayi, Love-Divine Ike (L’Dee), Eromose Ordia (Tom Tom), and Michael Adaikwu (Neon) could not make it to the next stage as they were evicted from the Academy. Chills ran down the spine of the audience who were amazed at the eviction of Neon, Prince, and Tom Tom whom they felt performed very well. With this eviction, the Academy is left with 21 contestants.
After the Saturday’s performances, Malachi Alozie (Mali Hot Boi), Ernest Smiley, Lea Dibebe (Socrazy cool), David Amaechina (Snipes), and Cynthia Njoku (Nekky) were put up for eviction in next week’s show.
A statement from Globacom’s headquarters in Lagos, urged viewers to tune in to Africa Magic Urban (Channel 153 on DSTV) at 7 p.m. on Saturday to find out the dancers that would leave the competition and also watch the remaining dancers entertain and fight to stay on in the academy.
Viewers who miss the action can look forward to watching it on African Independent Television (AIT) at 3 p.m. on Sunday and on MTV Base on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The company advised the public to vote for their preferred contestant by sending his or her code to 55518 at the cost of N50 per SMS.
