Things just got real!
Episode one and two were just warming us up for what’s in store. Episode three definitely left us on the edge of our seats because the talent became so diverse.
Girl power kicked off the episode as 28-year-old silk acrobat Liz from Tanzania. Liz, who has been doing silk acrobatics for the last 5 years, let her body weave its own story as she hiked up the silk cloths attached to the studio ceiling. Wa! She almost gave the judges a heart attack as she did moves hanging and pirouetting from above.
You know how when you are watching TV and then boom, something grabs your attention? Tetemesha Africa dance crew definitely had the same effect on me when they made their way on stage in their colourful bee-inspired costumes and face paint. Let me just say their energy was infectious, wafting through the screen and pushing me to break into my baddest moves.
Fast forward a few minutes later and all I can say is definitely don’t miss out on the next episode wueeh! Two words: drums and recycling. The Jua Kali drum team came in for a colourful performance using locally recycled plastic and metal containers as drums. Luckily, they qualified for the next round.
Enter the African Snake Girl
Just When we thought we were about to catch our breath in came a contortionist! Have you ever felt pain just by watching someone contort their body into unnatural postures? I was literally watching the screen through the crack between my fingers on my face. My insides cringed with every twist her body accomplished! The African snake girl proves that not even sticks and stones can break her bones. We are still reeling from seeing her untangle her limbs without hesitation.
Team Makorokocho gave us caveman dance realness with their impeccable choreography that left us thinking of the evolution of man. Such an outstanding performance.
Lastly, Godfrey from Tanzania gave us the saxophone rendition we never thought we needed but the catch is, he didn’t have the instrument. Watch the full episode below to find out exactly what we mean:
