ANAMBRA GOT TALENT.. My side of the story..

Got down for the show proper with a few friends and my better half.....'Don't ask me about that ok... Y? She's my biznes n not urs and as such u must know her.....'N also, am proud of her n she's the best there is'..

Was interviewd by the Friendite team.. Took a few pictures and headed into the event hall....'Emmaus House, Awka, Anambra State..'
 
Got to the entrance, had d security see through my Ticket/Pass and next I was in...

Ok I came quite late and nextup after I came in was a group... Females who sing..

They stepped on stage and to be honest I didn't hear a word they were saying/singing..... To d extent a guy next to me asked...( Dem don start?)...

Well luck was on der side and soon, they won over d crowd.....

*Hmmmmm, hmmmmmm..... I got confused here and was lost on what d next contestant was singin....next d MC came to give him some ginger..yet d crowd was already singing and clapping (kpam kpam kpam kpam Away....) Before next, he was off...

*Sawali was d first song and to be honest d next contestant stole my heart and attention.....a dance group... Thrilled the audience and ended well with break it by Psquare....

*Dj had us calculating on the song by wandecoal and patoranking n the (vice-singing) by ladies and need for correction....

*A dancer was the next and he came up to dance to Akon/Mj.... To be honest wit yall... D dance was cool but costume wise, he was off...

*Nextup d MC introduced the winner of gus 2013 (Chris Okagbue) to the Judges table and a standing ovation greeted his entrance..... With the song Laye by Kiss daniels...

*Next contestant was emrys....singing to davidos 'fans mi'....oga wetin happen na? You just make mockery of a dope song by 1. Costume, 2. Entrance, 3. Voice, 4. Going offkey n killin d joy of d audience..... Soon he was done and left the stage and the dj had d real song banging through my ears....

*Next up a guitarist....d crowd was up in high voices for him.... Truly I was expecting a perfomance to wow me off ma sit n I truly was off.... He had a perfct voice n had his fingers karessing the guiter from begining to d end of his perfomance.... All ova was a sounding ovation....

*Collete Nwadike was introduced to the Judges table.... An SA to the goveror of the state on tourism matters.....

*Mr Set was up on stage for a native performance...

They danced to native igbo tunes... Cool performance I'l say..

*Another group...DCMI... Dey came up to rap or should I say sing.... All I could here was Koko, Iroko, Koko..... At a stage I started to wonder if they were screened bfore selection.... Something the management should work on for next edition....

*An actor was intorduced to d high table....KenErics.... 

Funny MC, Here is what he had to say about Keneric's entrance and the reaction of the ladies...'the way Nigerian girls scream at male celebs dey amaze me die o'...you need to hear d loud noise from their screams for Ken-Erics....whyle having d judges do a lil shoki, from Brainy to Chris to Collethe and on and on......

Do u wnt to av him do shoki for us? D MC askd n next he had to do a fancy shoki...

Drum rolls... Uti's invitation was up and hanging....Uti entered d stage next...

'If na so una dey 'Love and affection' I go park come back to Awka... 

Uti invyted Nneka to stage.... (The Face of South East...)... Who praised Anambra people for there various Talents....

*D reason I came for d joy... *Jessica had us watching n listining to her native dance to an igbo melody.... Wasn't at her best but I'l say its cool doh.... 'D part I dnt like' she left in a way to say she wasn't satisfied with her performance or she knew she could do more...

Uti n Nneka came up stage to ginger people and atleast see more raw talents... And they placed 10k up for grabs for whoeva had something gud...

Sharon from friendite had d job of selecting the 6 talented talents to come win d 10k..... Finally we had 3 guys, 3 babes... .. a guy joined from no were and Uti wanted him off but said to him to rap n do well or be booted out from d crowd. He did it justice n was selctd....

Second was a rapper. He asked for a bit n he had to do d rest on it... He did well...'He try, as Uti said'

C.E.O Slami Empire.. Stepped up n had his say and show appreciation to all that made the show a success....

He had to do some little suspense act before the announcements and to be Honest, Don Hero was already full of himself that he was all smiles and pride thinking he had won.. But like Tayo in BBA, he got a shocker when Omega was declared the winner...

Here is the final result and how it all went.....

The Beast..3rd

Young Chizzy..2nd

Omega....1st..

Next up was for me to live the event center.. A good event though....


My Observations...
 First of all I want to believe there is a team for screening and auditioning, cos all I saw at the event was like they just picked the contestants without screening them thoroughly.... Conclusion 'Screen before event day and don't put clown-acts with no talent on stage...

Lighting was poor.

Stage design was poor.

No good source of air.. 'No Air Condition is such a Large Hall'.

The V.I.P section was just like the regular section..'Yes because I was in the Regular Section'..

The ushers weren't well fitted with an outfit to blend with the event...

The MC was dressed so casual like it was an ordinary street-side event.

Uti was kinda rude to the contestants, I get they were so poor in talent but as a start celeb he is,he should have been a source of inspiration and encouragement to them.... X-tout: They truly look like TOUTS, etc... SirUti biko u be star and shouldn't have said this..

The DJ was so unprofessional that Uti was so free and fast to tackle him at any given time... 'I loved this so much'.

The Projected images and video clips was unnecessary... 'Showing ass-twerking images/videos was so unprofessional and vulgar for such an event..

All in all I can go on and fill this post with issues I observed but I'll be glad the organizers read this and make corrections ahead of the next edition...

Was I satisfied with the event ? Can't say...

If am to rate it ova 10, what score will it be? 5 ova 10...

What next? I close my laptop and publish this article..
