Glo Battle of the Year Nigeria: the competition hardens and moves to the next phase

Globacom, telecommunications giant and sponsor of Glo Battle of the Year Nigeria (GBOTY Nigeria), announced the next phase of the dance reality show after successfully hosting the regional auditions.

The schedule of activities for her hotly contested next phase of dance was revealed at a media event in Lagos on Thursday, to brief Nigerians on the highly anticipated competition.

The interactive session was used to unveil a dance mentorship program for all regional winners, as part of plans to screen the entire show early next year, as well as the semi-finals and finals of the show which will also be broadcast live on television.

The regional auditions were quite a spectacle, as various venues saw thousands of hopefuls, who tried to outdo themselves with their dancing skills, as seen in Lagos, Abuja, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Kaduna and the Benign.

In separate interviews, the contestants expressed their gratitude to Globacom for recognizing the importance of dance in entertainment. Many felt that dancers did not have the status of actors in entertainment, and stressed that such a competition, given such publicity, would help dancers gain appropriate support in the entertainment industry.

Festus Kalu, during the Enugu auditions, said he was entering a dance-focused competition for the first time and expressed optimism that he would continue to pursue a dancing career after the competition.

“I saw the ad on Facebook and decided to give it a try. I would love to open a dance studio if I win and pursue my dancing career to the fullest, ” he said.

Additionally, Judah Wilson, a dance teacher who attended the Lagos auditions, said it was his first time auditioning and he didn’t know what to expect. He added that it would be good to qualify for the final so that he can show the nation all his talent.

Another candidate for the Abuja auditions, Mariam Lawal, said she has been dancing since the age of ten and is currently working as a dance teacher at a private high school in Kaduna.

She said: “It will be great to qualify for the semi-finals and the finals in Lagos. If I win, I would use the money to help the less fortunate. ”

Present at the different places to select the best of the best were local and international dance celebrities such as Poco Lee, Pinky Debbie, Izzy Odigie, Big Flo, Maxbuck, Dunamis, Franc Okwara, JC Jedor, Poxy (Cameroon), Gidnasty (USA) ), Menno (Netherlands) and Manuela (Germany). They should also feature in the next stage of the competition.

GBOTY Nigeria winners receive a total prize of 84 million Naira and a chance to represent Nigeria on the global stage of the competition.
