Calabar Raises the Bar for NGT Season 2

Nigeria’s number one talent show, Nigeria’s Got Talent brought the city of Calabar to a halt recently as the popular platform drew talented Nigerians from all the nook and crannies of the city to the second phase of the regional auditions which held on Saturday, October 12, 2013.

This year’s auditions, which first swept through Abuja on October 9th received a thunderous welcome from hundreds of eager talents who had trooped to the venue in a bid to showcase their talent and impress the judges.

The exclusive Monty Suites, Calabar was a whirlwind of activity for the motley selection of singers, dancers, actors, comedians, instrumentalists and many more who vied for the judges commendation and the once in a lifetime opportunity to win the star prize of 10 million naira.

The Calabar auditions also brought back other eager participants from Season 1 also aiming at another shot at the grand prize. One of such was Boniface Ukeme, whose splendid performance last year was impressive but failed to win him the golden prize. “I am not only back in season two with even more thrilling dance moves but I’m also here to walk away with the grand prize,” says Ukeme confidently.
