This reporter can confirm that Hiplife stars Guru, VIP and Hiphop artistes EL will be performing at the grand finale of this year’s edition of the Malta Guinness Street Dance Season Five.
This information was gleaned from the final eviction which was aired on Gh-One over the weekend. The grand finale of MGSD Season V is expected to come off at the National Theatre on, September 14, 2012 and the 4 dance crews who will be battling for the 15,000 GHC prize and a chance to represent Ghana at the world dance champions are: Heroes, Pipeline, One spirit and Rockers of all time.
The competition which has been ongoing for about 6 weeks now has seen some of the best representations of street dance on stage by some really imaginative dance crews drawn from across the country.
The final eviction show saw two dance groups ending their dance championship dreams, the two groups were 2 Black 2 strong and Revolutions. The competition opened with Heroes dance crew dancing to Lord Kenya’s Me do. They had good comments from the 3 Judges and won the hearts of the audience when they did a motorbike stunt with smoke coming from the mouth of one dance crew members.
2 Black 2 Strong was next with a dance routine to the song Aluguntugui by Keche. However, they did not move the Judges as well as they had hoped. Rockers of all Time danced to Wengeze by Eazzy, they appeared on stage with pink shirts with one crew member wearing a wig pretending to be Eazzy. They received thumbs-up from the Judges who were full of praise for their creativity.
Pipeline dance crew was next to perform, they have been one of the most consistent dance crew since the competition began but were a little less impressive this time round. Their dance routine to Five5”s Mujabaya, had the Judges commenting that they did not enjoy their performance. They however won the best dressed dance crew on the night.
One Spirit danced to Reggie Rockstone’s Eye mo de anaa. Reggie Rockstone who is one of the three Judges for the series commented that he was not impressed with their dance routine, a comment which was corroborated by his two other colleagues, KOD and Miss Bee. The last performance was by Revolution dance crew who danced EL’s Obuu mo; they had some good comments from the Judges though it was not their best performance.
