Following the successful premiere of the Glo Battle of the Year Nigeria, on Saturday, February 5, 2022, on Globacom’s mobile streaming app, GloTV, the telecommunications, and digital services provider has announced it will extend the weekly broadcasts of the show to Dstv, GOtv, Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and Africa Independent Television (AIT) beginning this week.
This season has begun on a high note with the first episode showcasing explosive contests that featured male breakdancers battling in the audition/elimination rounds into quarterfinals of the ‘B-Boys’ dance category of the competition. The one-hour show which was exclusively aired on Globacom’s top-rated mobile streaming app, featured contests across six regional venues- Kaduna, Abuja, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Benin, and Lagos.
The excitement-packed episode which saw several contestants’ showcasing jaw-dropping breakdance moves will air on Thursday, February 10, 2022, between 6 pm and 7 pm on NTA then on Friday, February 11, 2022, on AIT between 9 pm and 10 pm. The show will subsequently air weekly on GloTV app on Saturdays by 8 pm, NTA on Sundays by 8 pm, AIT on Tuesdays by 9 pm, Dstv- AFMAG Urban on Sundays 3 pm & Mondays 4 pm, AFMAG Family/ GOTV on Mondays by 10 pm and AFMAG Showcase on Tuesdays by 5 pm.
Among the winners who qualified for the semifinals from the first episode are dance talents equally gifted in other aspects of life including Abuja based gymnastics coach, BBOY Irah, six-foot-tall dancer, BBOY Off, sociology graduate BBOY Victor Vic, Enugu based graphic designer BBOY Bliss, and fashion model BBOY Softy. The most impressive performances of the first episode were performances from BBOY Lil Vic in Abuja; BBOYs Jamz rock, Jerry, Duke, Whirlz in Benin, BBOY Pryme in Enugu, and Pizaro in Lagos. While most of the participants were at their best and made it difficult for the judges, a few of them did not live up to the competition’s high standards and therefore didn’t advance to the next round.
Award-winning On-Air Personality (OAP) and actor, Do2tun who hosts the show, chronicled the journey of each of the dancers and their quest to leverage Globacom’s unlimited brand promise of unleashing their potentials and achieving their dreams of wealth, stardom, and global domination. The show equally featured a live performance by Afro-pop sensation Simi who thrilled the viewing audience to a few of her greatest hits.
The second episode of the show will be broadcast first by 8 pm on Saturday, February 12th on GloTV at 8 pm. Viewers are encouraged to get the GloTV app on myglotv.com to watch the talents dance their way to mega-millions.
