Team Ofuobi leads as the People’s Hero excites viewers
With a perfect fusion of singing, dancing, spoken word and acting, audience were taken on a thrilling journey at the People’s Hero live show last weekend. In a Tales by Moonlight setting, different groups delivered artistic pieces centered on the origin of the Igbo market days namely Eke, Orio, Afor and Nkwo.
The 20 finalists on the show had been divided into five groups of four persons comprising a dancer, singer, actor and spoken work artiste. The groups: Agwu, Obidike, Obinwanne, Ofuobi and Ichekwu were all given a task to work with the theme Egwu-Onwa known in English as ‘Tales by Moonlight’ to create stories around the Igbo market days, with each art playing significant role.
Each group performed to thrill the audience and impress the judges, who were very demanding and expected nothing short of excellent performances. The judges expected rich delivery of Igbo culture creatively expressed in the four arts. In the end of the performances, two of the three judges rated the Ofuobi group the best for the night and urged other groups to work harder and improve their skills.
Two of the judges, who were part of the audition process, admitted the performance by each group was impressive, as each person seemed to have worked hard to improve their skills.
Actress Rachael Okonkwo said there was a huge difference between the performance at the audition and the live shows noting that the contestants have become more confident and creative in their arts. She commended the coach Segun Adefila for a great job training these talents.
No eviction happened on the show this time, as all the groups were pardoned and urged to go back to drawing tables and improve on their performance. The show is getting fiercer as eviction may commence from next week. The People’s Hero continues this Saturday on MTV base by 9.00pm and a repeat broadcast happens every Wednesday by 9.00pm.
