The curtain has fallen for the Oladapo and Nwaeze families as they became the second set of families to exit the ongoing Maltina Dance All (MDA) family dance show. They were evictedafter being put up for possible eviction from the ‘Rhythm of Naija’ and ‘New Age’ dance performances. They now join the Leonard and Maisamari families who left the show last week.
The three judges - Muyiwa Oshinaike, Jeffery Page and Comfort Fedoke - had carefully deliberated on the families that will be put up for possible eviction.
The Uzodinma and Utere familieshad earlier been selected for possible eviction alongside the Oladapo and Nwaeze families who were selected for possible eviction after their below the bar performances at the various performance shows. The four families had to come back on stage to finetune their routinesin the ‘Rhythm of Naija’ and ‘New Age’ dance performance to maintain their slots in the academy.
After the Rhythm of Naija the “dancer of the night” was Jane from the Uzodinma family. The dancers of the night stand a chance of selecting the order of performance for the next dance style in the academy.
The Oladapo family on hearing their name as one of the families up for possible evictionfor the second time came on stage promising to fight their way back as they assured the judges and the audience that they will come back the next day to give their best and maintain their spot in the academy.But, they were unable to impress the judges with their performance at the eviction show down which earned them the way home.
Senior Brand Manager Maltina Mr. Wole Adedeji said Maltina Dance All is one way among many that NB Plc is restating its brand values. “MDA is about the dancer’s creative ability, knowledge of different dance styles, stamina and fitness. The task is no doubt enormous but it is a delight to see the result it has been producing in the last 7 seasons. Some of the dancers have taken their career further than the Maltina Dance All stage; while some are dancing locally others are doing it internationally”. He revealed.
The Maltina Dance All season 8 winning family will now take home N10 million while the first and second runners up will take home N3 million and N1million respectively. The show is in tune with the brands promise of “Sharing happiness,” creating excitement, fun and nourishment for the entire family, it is equally a reality show where families strive to outdo each other by showcasing different types of dance steps and styles to compete for the star prize.
