The mood in the Globacom-sponsored Dance with Peter academy was melancholic over the weekend as the T.V Reality Show gradually winds to a close. The Judges who are also mentors to the house mates were emotional as the last of their mentees are up for eviction from the show.
Peter Okoye of Psquare revealed that the reality T.V show has created a bond between him and the housemates, especially his team members, Teejay, C-Fly, Miracle and Da Octopus who have so far proved outstanding.
“I’ve come a long way with my team members and have developed a bond with them. We are all like brothers now, we feel each other’s pain and share each other’s glory”, he said.
Team Peter is left with C-Fly and Da Octopus, Team Kaffy has Julius Faktah, Amazing Amy and Mali Hot Boy, while Team Flexx has Kelvin and G-Xtreem. Peter, Kaffy and Flexx are the three judges and coaches of the academy
At last weekend’s show, contemporary African dance took center stage. The remaining 10 housemates opened the show with a well choreographed performance, reminiscent of the South African Zulu dance troupe, UMOJA. While profiling the housemates, a footage of the activities in the academy revealed the tension that had engulfed the contestants.
The competitors put in their best to qualify for a slot in the finals of the show, which come up next Saturday. Kelvin, Teejay, Julius Faktah, T-Rubber and Miracle who had been put on probation in the last edition, had their hearts in their mouths as the anchor, Ehis, called out the evictees. Julius Faktah was saved, having earned the highest public votes. He therefore returned to the academy. Kelvin missed being evicted by the skin of his teeth after scoring the second highest votes, thus returning to the academy.
Teejay, Miracle and T-Rubber were sent packing from the academy leaving 7 housemates, C-Fly (524), Da Octopus (503), G-Xtreem (507), Amazing Amy (523), Kelvin (521), Julius Fakta (520) and Mali Hot Boy (511), to continue the battle in the grand-finale for the star prize of a Toyota Rav 4 SUV and N3million cash with an opportunity of featuring in the next P-Square music video.
Who remains till the final show is now in the hands of the audience who will decide who will leave the house after last weekend’s show.
