It would be recalled that the MDA auditions were held in three regions; Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt where 28 regional family representatives emerged defeating other contestants during the regional auditions. The family representatives performed as individual contestants and were later visited by the Maltina team at home where they performed alongside their families to see how well they can perform as united families.
The sum of N10million is at stake in this season’s competition. The first and second runners-up will take home N3million and N1million respectively.
