Review of the performances
The evening started on a high note with families all geared up for the first of the two performances of the evening. The Zibe family got on stage first – they dazzled with their dance performance to the the hit song of Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, Adele, Set Fire to the Rain.

Shortly after, the Eghove’s elicited much cheers from the audience – they thrilled the audience with an overwhelming performance of popular Ghanaian dance style, Azonto. The Boyle’s next on stage, certainly had every reason to be grateful to God for bringing their family this far in the competition – they gave a wonderful dance performance of Lara George‘s single, Ijoba Orun.

The Efiokwu’s were the last on stage and gave an applauded dance performance to P-Square’s club banger, Chop My Money. The second set of performances, saw the Green’s, Boyle’s,Zibe’s, Efiokwu’s and the Eghove’s give their all to clinch the title of the ultimate dancing Nigerian family.

After scintillating and highly explosive performances from the five families, the tension in the hall was palpable. The audience waited in anticipation to know which of the 5 families would emerge winner of the cash prize and brand new car. Eventually, the Green’s won.

Janell Burgess, an American skilled professional dancer and one of the Judges during the elimination stage, said “I am so proud of all the families that performed tonight. They embodied what we really cherish here in Maltina which is family unity. One thing so special about Nigeria is that its peoples really value and appreciate family. Here in Maltina, we promote family unity and dance as an art. I’m so pleased with the progression of Maltina with the MDA, it has shown that dance is a living and breathing profession that can serve as a unifying factor in society and can also be adopted as a profession by the families.”

She stated that over the years, there has always been a tremendous improvement each year in the dance performances of the families. “Because dancing is an ongoing process, Maltina created the MDA Academy to teach families more about the art of dancing, the way to move and adjust their bodies to different types of music. We basically educate them on dance styles and patterns, so every year; it is only going to get better as the education also gets stronger”
