After more than 3 months of rigorous display of dance skills in the Glo-sponsored Dance with Peter reality T.V show, twenty-four year old Kelvin Ayanruoh from Delta State has emerged the champion, winning a prize of a Toyota RAV 4 SUV, N3million cash and an opportunity of featuring in P-Square’s next music video.
Kelvin beat five other contestants including Mali Hot Boy, Julius Faktah, Amazing Amy and Da Octopus at the grand finale which was held at the Bamako Studio, Ojodu, Lagos, to clinch the coveted star prize.
While Mali Hot Boy came second and won a Honda Civic Car and N2 million, Julius Faktah came second and will go home with a Kia Rio car and N1million cash. Both of them will also have a chance to feature in a top Glo Ambassador’s music video. Amazing Amy finished fourth, while Da Octopus was in the fifth place.
Basking in the euphoria of his title, jubilant Kelvin said his main driving force is to “respect all and fear none.” Kelvin began as a member of a dance group called Elevators NG. He made it through the audition stage by his ability as a solo performer and has proved himself by winning the competition.
G-Xtreem and C-Fly made it to the top seven and were placed sixth and seventh respectively by the viewers.
Dance with Peter was launched in August by Playcenter Nigeria in partnership with Globacom. The company disclosed that its decision to sponsor the show was because of the need to promote the dance culture among Africans and assist those who may want to go into the dance profession to discover their potential.
Peter Okoye performed with Glo ambassador and entertainer, Dapo Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj, who was the guest judge on the show.
