The stage is now set for the epic dance battle that will showcase Nigeria’s best dancing families as the curtains fall on the Maltina Dance All (MDA) family reality television show season 7.
The winning dance family will drive home a brand new car in addition to a cash prize of N6 million while the first and second runners up will take home N1million and N500, 000 respectively.
Sponsored by Maltina, a premium non-alcoholic malt brand from the stable of Nigerian Breweries Plc, the reality show after a rigorous and intensive competition process spanning more than a month, five families: the Ebute, Briggs, Ibrahim, Enweribe and Ikumoinein families qualified for the grand finale taking place live at Eko Hotel and Suites on Saturday September 21, 2013.
The race started on September 1, 2013 with ten families in the picture; however,five families were unable to survive the unique introduction of dance styles from the 1960s to date hence the title, “The Evolution” of dance. The five families that made it to the final stage of the exciting family dance reality show convinced the judges that they are capable of being among the last families that would compete for the prizes.
It was an emotional night at the first eviction showdown as two families – Dosa and Clement families – became the first two families to be evicted from the show. The show, which started airing on September 1, 2013, opened with dance performances from the 60s-70s and 80s-90s. After the first dance performance from the 60s-70s the Dosa and Clement families were put up for possible eviction. The Asiyefia and Ebute families later joined them for possible eviction after the 80s-90s dance performance.
