Young, witty, entertaining and now a millionaire! That’s our Nigerian dancing sweetheart, Amarachi Uyanne.
Yesterday, Sunday 9th December 2012, the 8 year old dancing sensation was announced winner of season one of the hit reality TV show, Nigeria’s Got Talent. She was presented with the grand prize cheque of N 10 Million by the sponsors of the show, Airtel Nigeria.
At the final show, the Primary 5 student from Delta State who won through a public voting process, went head-to-head against one of the top contenders, violinist Godwin Ogechukwu.
According to a rep for the show, Amarachi is now the youngest non-inheritor millionaire in Nigeria having broken the previous record set by Solomon Ebuka Nwanke Ubani, who became a millionaire at 20.

Speaking on her prize money, Amarachi said she would use part of the money to support orphans and to pursue her ambition of becoming a medical doctor. “I am happy that I won. At first I was afraid and thought I would lose, but thank God I won in the end. I want to help orphans with the money and also for the education of my two siblings as well as mine.”
We wish Amarachi all the best.
