Beginning from this weekend, millions of television viewers across Africa will be able to follow Dance with Peter, the continent’s hottest reality TV show sponsored by Globacom.
The programme will be broadcast on Saturdays on Africa Magic Urban (Channel 153) from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sundays on Africa independent Television (AIT) from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The first episode of the programme scheduled for broadcast this weekend would show the highlights of the auditions held in Abuja, Nigeria, and Accra, Ghana.
With the programme going on air, entertainment lovers will be able to see all the exciting highlights of the battle by thousands of aspiring dancers to make the final 30 shortlist to compete for the fantastic prizes offered by Globacom.
It will be quite entertaining as the episode parades talents with amazing dance steps as well as purely hilarious characters who came for the auditions and left the judges wondering if they were aspiring dancers or comedians.
Viewers will also be able to follow the battle by the three judges of the show to outwit one another to have the best dancers choose them as their mentors.
After the dancers sweated to impress the judges and be selected for the next stage of the auditions, the tables then turned with the selected dancers now choosing which of the judges they wanted to mentor them, particularly in instances where two or three judges indicate interest in mentoring a contestant. It is quite exciting watching the twist of fate with the judges wooing the contestants.
The judges are Peter Okoye of PSquare, dance instructor and choreographer, Don Flexx, and Guinness Book record holder for longest dance, Kafayat Shafau Ameh, popularly known as Kaffy.
The best dancer will win a brand new Toyota RAV 4 sports utility vehicle, N3million cash prize and the rare opportunity of featuring in PSquare’s next music video.

The first runner-up will receive a brand new Honda Civic car and N2million cash, while the third place winner will get a brand new Kia Rio car with N1million.
