Based on his hit track, ‘Oliver Twist’, D’banj announced yesterday of his plans to introduce a dance competition.
He urged aspiring contestants to record their own dance routines and upload it on his website. He also asked that they incorporate dance moves from the video.
In a statement published by the Punch, he said:
“Make sure you check out our ‘Oliver Twist’ Dance Competition at www.dbanjofficial.com/dancecompetition. Whether you’re a seasoned professional, rank amateur, break-dancer, Zumba fanatic or Saturday night clubber we want YOU to enter!
“Just watch the video of D’Banj and his Kokoletts showing you some key moves from the ‘Oliver Twist’ video, then record your own routine and upload it to the website. The videos with the most Facebook ‘Likes’ will become our finalists and D’Banj will select the winners.
“So download ‘Oliver Twist’ now, get on your dancing shoes and get ready to LEBETE!”
Wait a minute though. Haven’t we seen this somewhere before?
The website says, “Top prize for the best solo performer is £500 and an exclusive pair of customized trainers, courtesy of ADIDAS. Top prize for best group performance is £500 and a private dance party for up to 12 people at Pineapple Studios in London.”
