….The well-known dancer, award winning singer and exceptional producer judging your favourite talents
For six seasons, God’s Children Great Talent (GCGT) Africa’s biggest gospel talent show has showcased some of the brightest acts that have held us spellbound with their mesmerizing display of innate talents. From singing and dancing to spoken word and comedy, GCGT now in its seventh season has blessed our hearts and even more, our eyes. This seventh season is bringing a phenomenal viewing experience for the audience while the grand prize include 250 million Naira management deal, 10 million Naira cash and brand new car for the winner.
Going by the caliber of Judges announced for this season, contestants are left with no choice but to bring their best showcase of talent as these Judges are no minnows in entertainment. Each contestant hoping to take possession of the grand prize would have to convince the star-studded panel of judges – award winning singer Omawumi, world-class dancer Kaffy and ace producer, TY Mix – they really have what it takes to win.
Just as the GCGT contestants are being pruned ahead of this season’s semi-finals that precedes a grand finale to be held later this month in Lagos, enchanting singer and Judge, Omawumi Megbele popularly known as Omawumi is one familiar with this routine. Omawumi hit the limelight when she took part in Idols West Africa 2007 where she emerged first runner-up. Armed with an amazing voice, Omawumi has successfully cemented her place on the Nigerian music scene as she continues to thrill fans with her much-loved genre of music.
Another female GCGT7 judge is celebrity dancer Kaffy who is a multiple award-winning Nigerian choreographer, instructor, fitness-lifestyle coach and entrepreneur. A World record holder for the “Longest Dance Party” (totalling 55 hours and 40 minutes), Kaffy has sat on the panel for a number of talent shows as a faculty instructor along with her fellow GCGT7 judge, ace producer, songwriter and music executive Temitayo Ibitoye also known as Tee-Y Mix who is responsible for some of Nigeria’s evergreen songs of over a decade.
TY Mix continues to work with some of Africa’s biggest music stars and yearns to showcase one of the biggest exports of this season in glory of God’s talent. Together, these three judges Omawumi, Kaffy and TY Mix will be inspiring a new generation of Christian talents to using their God-given gifts to become mega-stars for His Kingdom.
Pretty daunting task making a pick in a sea of very talented youngsters no doubt, but the judges can rely on the support of the two dynamic hosts that will be anchoring GCGT Season 7 Semi-finals and a live television broadcast of the grand finale later in this season.
Talented actor, presenter and model Uti Nwachukwu will join long-time GCGT host, beautiful and exceptionally talented On-Air-Personality, Ayo Thompson who has anchored previous seasons of the gospel talent show. Uti Nwachukwu got his big break in entertainment when he won a major reality show in 2010 after his first attempt in 2008, while Ayo Thompson currently engages with her skills at Wazobia TV and Nigeria Info FM. Together the Judges and these personalities with their respective experiences in talent competitions will make GCGT 7 one show to not forget in a long while.
You can watch weekly episodes of GCGT 7 every Sunday on WazobiaMax and NTA (3 PM), HipTV (4 PM), OHTV and EbonyLife TV (6 PM) as well as Dove TV and Silverbird TV (11 PM) as contestants prepare for boot camp ahead of the semi-final contest.
