    some acts have absolutely no business being on that stage. I don’t even know what the judges are thinking sometimes.
    Like how in the hell did that “fake saxaphone” guy make it up there? and the Adult Babies? Sign… Kate and Yibo just put through all these yeye acts.
    Although Dan Foster is an American and may not grasp the “Nigerian-ness” in a lot of the acts, he makes the most sense as far as judging.
    This show is a hot mess. Lol

    Bariyu is a unique act. His puppet dog is just hilarious. It is such a trip to see a Nigerian ventriloqust. He needs all our encouragement.we need to look at acs we can export and Bariyu is definitely one to watch.
