It was a fun-filled weekend as memories of departed music legends were re-ignited by participants who featured in the second episode of Nigeria’s Got Talent.
Episode two featured the auditioning in Port Harcourt, Enugu, and Warri, which featured 18-year-old choreographer Michael who brought pop legend, Michael Jackson’s ‘Moonwalk’ back to life with a dramatic display of the King of Pop’s dance moves that got the audience asking for more. Michael has made it to the semi-final round; joining the four-man Acappella band group ‘Impulse’, with impressive performance that secured a 100 percent vote from the Judges.
Others were not so lucky. Princess Daniel, fully adorned in her cultural attire spiced up with traditional make-up reminiscent of the Fela’s stage ‘Queens’ and gyrating to afro-beat moves inspired by Fela Anikulapo-Kuti failed to make an impression on the judges, neither did the duo nicked-named ‘The Lees’ who tried in futility to mimic the martial-art icon Bruce Lee’s Karate moves.
At the Enugu camp, it was the 26-year old upcoming comedian, MC Pincode’s rib cracking jokes and 17-year-old Obamor McCarthy’s mesmerising skills on round leather (football), that earned both and a few others including the fiery fire eater from Warri a place in the next round, in pursuit of the N10 million star prize on offer.
Commenting on the vast skills and talents that abound all over the country as unearthed by the talent show, the celebrity judges trio of Dan Foster, Kate Henshaw and Yibo Koko are united in the belief that Nigeria is just about to make history yet again on the world stage through this reality TV show which is sponsored by Airtel Nigeria.
