Power haunts Ka Jive, gets huge audience

The long awaited Ka Jive Dance Competition season two grand finale took place at Robin’s Park in Blantyre on Saturday.

Six finalists battled it out during the competition which saw Blantyre-based group Twist ermeging winners pocketing K1.5 million.

The event which this year involved groups from Blantyre and Lilongwe delayed to start irking some of the people.

The competition is surely growing and is being loved by many youths as noticed on Saturday when it attracted a huge audience dominated by the youths.

Running under the slogan Tivine Zimenezi, the contest saw the best from the finalists of The Incredibles, Adobe Dance Crew and Salama African Dance Crew from Lilongwe and Twist, Limbanazo and Ikuba from Blantyre.

Everything was on point during the competition which was beamed live on Times Television including the decoration but its flow was haunted by power problem from Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom).

The competition had to be stopped on several occasions while contestants were performing due to power shortage and the generator provided solution later.

However despite this challenge, the competition went on with the audience enjoying every moment with Danger Crew and Floor Steppers warming up the stage before the finalists started the battle.

All the finalists performed before the number was trimmed to three and saw Lilongwe doing well with Adobe and Salama making it through while Blantyre had only one representative in Twist.

The three who failed to make it to the last round were The Incredibles from Lilongwe and Blantyre representatives Ikuba and Limbanazo.

There was only to be one winner on the day and so the three were given another second chance to show their swag.

Host Times Television presenter Mr 265, who run the grand finale with another Times Television presenter Sharon Chirwa nearly caught the wrath of the audience when he at first announced that Twist had been evicted.

But he corrected it later with the support of one of the judges Talumba Chirwa announcing that Twist and Salama were the top two finalists and eventually Twist emerged winners.

Random interviews with people indicated that they were satisfied with the outcome.

“In the first place Twist deserved to win because they did well in all the two sets.

This is a good competition and we have seen great talent but there are gaps which Times Television need to work on, they delayed the show, power problem also did not help and then they also need to work on security which was poor,” said Bright Jere, who came with his children.

The competition was spiced up by performances from guest artists including Times Television presenter and musician Annie Matumbi, Piksy, Dan Lu and Tay Grin, who dished out his new song he collaborated with Nigeria’s 2Baba titled‚ ‘Chipapapa.’

With organisers running out of time, the show had to move at a fast pace hence musician Lucius Banda and Nepman not performing despite their presence.
