What we are looking for in contestants -DWP Judges

Judges of Dance with Peter reality TV show sponsored by Globacom have disclosed the qualities the 

contestants taking part in the dancing competition should have to stand a chance of winning the mouth-

watering prizes promised by the telecom operator.

The prizes being offered by Globacom include a brand new Toyota Rav4 and N3m cash prize for the 

winner as well as a Honda Civic car with N2m cash and a Kia Rio with N1m cash for the first and second 

runners-up respectively.

Speaking on his expectations from the contestants, show originator, Peter Okoye of PSquare, said he was 

looking for uniqueness. “I am looking for the X Factor. I need someone that can give me a distinct 

performance and wow me.  My advice to the contestants is for them to realize with great power and 

opportunity comes great responsibility. So they have to BRING IT ON!!! They should give it their best 

and hopefully they can make it to the end.” He added that “dancers are working really hard, so it is time 

to appreciate them”. 

“It's been impressive so far and I get motivated by the contestant even as a judge.  I can really see that 

they are hungry to move to the next level. The plan for the finals is to blow the viewers away, not only 

with the standard of the show but also the improvement of the dancers over the episodes. So I urge all the 

contestants to cease the moment to make history for themselves,” Peter stated. 

For Don Flexx, PSquare’s choreographer who is also a judge in the Dance with Peter show, “I'm looking 

out for creativity, originality, someone who is smart and can think out of the box in delivering tasks 

giving to them.”

“So far for me the quality of Contestants has been impressive and they can surely be groomed to be of 

quality standard as we progress in the show. My advice to the dancers, therefore, is to stay humble, 

hungry and most especially be disciplined to prevail at the end of the show. These qualities will help them 

learn a lot as they progress in the competition,” Flexx added.

On her part, Nigeria’s dance queen and female judge, Kaffy, 'I am looking for originality. The dancers 

should be comfortable and bring out the dance from their soul.” I would be looking forward to seeing 

dancers take advantage of the mentorship by the judges to metamorphose from what they were when they 

entered and blossom to a better version of themselves.

“My advice right now is that those being chosen for the finals means there's a lot expected from them. We 

are not going to take it easy on them, so they should remain humble, open to creative ideas and be wise 

with constructive criticism as this show was created to build and not to destroy anyone”.


Kaffy also commended the quality of dancers on the show. “We chose the finalists not just because of 

their ability to dance but also because of the potential we saw in them to grow and become more 

developed in their craft. The crown for top position will be keenly contested as I foresee a lot of them 

surprising us in the show.”
