I WILL REVIVE DANCE WITH PETER SAYS MR.P
In 2015, three years ago precisely, Africans were inroduced to a different kind of reality television dance show titled “Dance with Peter”, a show sponsored by Nigeria’s biggest telecommunications giant~ Glo. The judges were Mr.P (Peter Okoye), Kaffy and DonFLEX while Ehiz was the presenter.
The show basically created a platform for those with dance skills to showcase their skills, they were all rewarded for their efforts.
It was the first of its kind and the overall winner for the first edition was Kelvin Ayanruoh who was given a car and millions of naira. Also, Peter Okoye (Mr.P) whose name the reality dance show bears, also took it upon himself to gift C-fly and Amazing Amie, a car and 250,000 naira each for being the most valuable dancers for male and female.

And I want to let y’all Know that I fulfilled that promise.
“I know most of you will start wondering why it was never seen during the broadcast. Pls a big congratulations to dis two Amazing individuals who will always remain reference to DWP. I remain loyal and humble cos am the Koolest Dude #KoolestDude ??”
In 2016 and 2017, Africans yearned and anticipated for another edition, more so when all reality shows like Gulder Ultimate Show, Maltina Dance hall, MTN Project Fame etc. have all packed up after 5 to ten years of dominating the screen, but nothing came up.
Rumour has it that after the first edition, there was a disagreement between Glo management and Peter Okoye (Mr.P), the one whose name the show carries.
Irrespective of whatever may have happened years ago, fans are still anticipating for another edition of the reality tv dance show in this 2018.
Peter Okoye as however come out to say that he will revive the reality dance show. He made this known during an interview with Premium Times. View his words here…
PT: What projects are currently working on?
Peter Okoye (MR.P): Well, as you know I am constantly looking for ways to expand my horizon, which goes farther than the music. So alongside my team, some of the things I am most excited about are reality TV shows, one includes reviving Dance with Peter, the launch of my clothing line, the beverage factory and a platform I am particularly proud of as it is a way of giving back.
