Maltina Dance All 7: Youths Defy The Rains For Abuja Audition

The heavy downpour of August 3, 2013 in Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory, Abuja could not deter thousands of youths that stormed the Nicon Luxury Hotel regional audition venue of Maltina Dance All (MDA), the highly celebrated family dance show, to showcase their dancing talents as the quest to select family representatives for the Maltina dance academy continues.

At the end of the long hours of competition, not even the rains could stop the nine finalists that emerged in the future battle for the grand prize and the highly coveted title of Nigeria’s number one dancing family.
The huge turnout and skill exhibited by contestants- also affirmed by the judges – showed that the Abuja participants have really come of age and improved in the MDA 7 selection session compared to previous auditions.
Aptly dubbed “The Evolution”, the auditions did not disappoint as some of the contestants promised to bring the title “up North”. At the end of the gruelling and competitive dance sessions, the judges - Muyiwa Osinaike, Bimbo Obafunwa and Ukalina Opuwari – selected nine out of the hundreds of contestants that participated.
The nine are: Abiodun Ibrahim, Ivory Dosa, Patience Ebute John, Tije Manari, Longret Masamari, Uchendu David Segun, Ude Jane, Godwin Clement and Ezekiel Chika.
They, alongside their respective families will however undergo comprehensive medical screening which is on-going and the medical fitness result will ultimately be the basis for the selection of their families - considering the highly physical and mental rigours of a competitive dance competition like the MDA.
The selection of the family representatives was preceded by the age grade dance competition featuring dancers from 5-12, 13–19, 20-30 and 31 and above age grades.
Eight year old Rita Oba won the first prize –Flat screen television set – in the 5-12 age category. Omorogie Blessing, Ezekiel Chika and Samuel Okoye also clinched the first prizes in the 13–19, 20-30 and 31 and above age grade categories. Other prizes won include Home theatre systems and BlackBerry phones as the brand continues to “share happiness”.
