They were the first to hit the stage and their performance was electrifying, daring, fullÂ of unbelievable stunts and when they did a piece on Nigeriaâ€™s golden jubilee, they drewÂ an applause from the audience.

The family, apart from the prestige of emerging winners, also carted away the star prizeÂ of N2.5 million and a sport utility vehicle (SUV) worth N7 million.
It was all excitement as the five finalists, Abang, Nelson, Eselemo, Adejo and Uhie,Â slugged it out at the grand finale to emerge winners for the 4th season of MDA.
The show began with a pantomime of Nigeria at 50 dances, where each family displayed aÂ well-thought out concept of the emergence of Nigeria from independence and how countryÂ has grown and developed over the years.
The judges made up Michael Adegoke and Janell Burges, both professional dancers from theÂ United States of America, also thrilled the audience with their multi-faceted danceÂ steps, which comprised dance patterns from all over the world such as rhumba,Â cha-cha-cha, salsa, ballet and South African leg dance. The hip hop dance, the mainÂ attraction of the night, featured the five families doing an energetic dance with a lotÂ of contemporary acrobatics. The winning family comprising three young men, put theirÂ youthful vigour to the test which eventually brought them success in the end.
