MDA 6: Which Family Wears the Crown?

The stage is now set for the epic dance battle tommorrow that will showcase Nigeria’s best dancing families as the curtains fall on the Maltina Dance All (MDA) family reality television show season six. 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.
Eghove family
After a rigorous and intensive competition process spanning more than a month, five families; the Efiokwu, Green, Eghove, Boyle and Zibe families qualified for the grand finale taking place live at The Expo center, Eko Hotel and Suites. The race started on September 2, 2012 with ten families in the picture; however, five families were unable to survive the various dance styles that were introduced in the MDA Academy: the “Wazobia” (contemporary Nigerian dances), Salsa, Pantomime, Gumboot, Hip-hop and Contemporary African dance styles.

Efiokwu family
The five families that made it to this level were able to survive the six different dance styles. From the 10 families that made it to the academy, the first set to be evicted were the Ozurumba and Nwogwugwu families; they failed to convince the judges after the Wazobia and Salsa performances. The Wazobia performance had placed the Ozurumba and Nwogwugwu families for eviction while the salsa performance placed the Okasia family as the only family up for possible eviction.
Green family

The second phase of the show was the contemporary African and Gumboot dances. After the performance the Amilo and Onyebuagu families were put up for possible eviction. They could however not survive at the eviction showdown and were asked to leave the academy after gumboot performance. At the eviction show down the four families came back to compete and the judges did what had never been done before in the history of Maltina Dance All as they saved two families the Onyebuagu and Efiokwu families and gave the audience an opportunity to vote between the Amilo and the Okasia families.
Zibe family
The live audience voted the Okasia family back into the academy kicking the Amilo family out of the academy. After the second eviction show down, the families were introduced to the last two dance styles which will usher them to the grand finale, the Hip-hop and Pantomime dance styles. After the hip-hop performance the Zibe and Okasia families were put up for eviction making it the third time the Okasia family was up for eviction. After the Pantomime performance, the Onyebuagu and Boyle families were placed on possible eviction making it the first time the Boyle family will fall into this category.

Mrs. Ngozi Nkwoji, Senior Brand Manager, Maltina said they undertook the journey because the brand’s story has always been the story of “sharing happiness” within the Nigerian family and beyond with emphasis on the values of friendship, trust, togetherness and faithfulness.
Boyle family
“It is all about bringing the entire family together in an atmosphere of friendship and bonding with other families so that as units they can share common problems and ideas effectively throughout their time at the Academy and beyond. We are very passionate about the family institution and we will do the little we can as a responsible corporate entity to ensure that the institution continues to remain relevant because a healthy and sound family system will resonate on the Nation as a whole, the family unit is the bedrock of any society.”

The MDA which is the foremost experiential and sponsorship platform of the Maltina brand is renowned for “sharing happiness,” promoting and enhancing family values and bonding between different families from different cultures across the country.
