The road to the Ka Jive Dance competition season 2 started with Lilongwe auditions held at Crossroads Hotel on Saturday and saw 12 contestants being selected.
Unlike season one when the auditions were only held in Blantyre, this season the competition has extended to Lilongwe.
Timescom Business Manager Heggar Kalowekamo said yesterday that the auditions were exciting and that they are anticipating more goodies this year.
“It was exciting, more contestants participated and now after Lilongwe we go to Blantyre this Saturday at Al Pacino’s,” said Kalowekamo.
Kalowekamo said that the contestants who made it through during the auditions in Lilongwe are Young We Dance Crew, Mtola Dance Crew, TKC, Element – X, Relapz Crew, Nyenyenye Dance Troupe, VOC, Adobe Dance Crew, Salama Africa Dancing Crew, The Incredibles, LC Blazers and Amuna Ndife Malawi.
He said that the judges who made the selection during the auditions were former Big Brother Africa (BBA) representative Sipe, musician Hazel Mak and columnist Rodgers Siula.
“We just want to ask contestants in Blantyre to be prepared, as I said Lilongwe auditions were massive and the judges had a torrid time to select the 12. We hope it will be the same in Blantyre,” said Kalowekamo.
He said after the auditions in Blantyre, the competition will now head for eliminations and that they will be shifting between Lilongwe and Blantyre.
Kalowekamo however, could not shed more light on whether the contestants from Blantyre and Lilongwe will be battling together during eliminations.
He described the dance competition spearheaded by Times Group through Times Television as a lifetime opportunity for dancers to display their various dance moves to the nation with the show set to be broadcast live on Times Television.
Last year Metics Dance Crew were the winners pocketing K1 million.
Kalowekamo has since hailed Airtel Malawi who are the co-sponsors of the competition which this year will see the winner walking away with K1.5 million
