The rave-making family show sponsored by Maltina, the premium non-alcoholic malt brand from the stable of Nigerian Breweries which has brought happiness and excitement to homes across Nigeria and beyond shortlisted Ebi Williams Konugah, Sotun Briggs, Felix Ekadio, Ikumonein Titus, Nornubari Treasure, Jones Pius Samson, Emmanuel Asiyefia and Miaya Tom as the deserving and potential family representatives and qualifiers into the MDA house. They will however undergo comprehensive medical screening which is on-going and the medical fitness result will ultimately be the basis for the selection of their family considering the highly physical and mental rigours of a competitive dance competition like the MDA.
The first day of the auditioning witnessed regional dancing competition among four different age groups- ages 5-12, 13-19, 20 -30 as well as 30 and above. Contestants in each group competed for a range of exciting prizes - Home theatre systems for first positions, Blackberry phones for 2nd positions and 21” Flat screen TV sets for 3rd positions respectively.
The show, according to Mrs Ngozi Nkwoji, Senior Brand Manager, Maltina is all about the emotions, excitement, fun and the unbreakable bond that ten families will showcase when they challenge themselves by learning and performing various dance styles from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and to the present in the famous Maltina Dance All academy.
