    Nigerian Children got talent. Wow, i think the show is all about children. Amarachi, good dancer, however, i think Godwin is unique, it’s not easy to find such talent. So, if the show was really about Nigerians got talent, then i don’t think a dancer should win because all the kids in Nigeria today knows how to dance. The judges, i think did not do a good job.

      Ty and pearl u guys are saying the truth. The show should be nigeria children got talent. Vote for raw talent nt emotion

        January 11, 2013 at 1:33 PM

        Yeah u guyz are right, and A̶̲̥̅♏ so surprise nigerians never reason with us. I really love the kid and may God continue to bless her. But I THINK she got sympathy vote because she Wα̲̅ڪ contesting with people who are not in her calibre which secure her the grand prize and which is not suppose †☺ b so. Every nowadays children can dance extremly, so it whould b called Naija got children’s talent show instead. Technically this is not right, moreso she’s not yet an adult. By this, how do we encourage the children?

    Quite simply put? deservedly Deserved! And for me, the other contestant that deserved the final 3 was the Violin boy; and another that should have made the final 3 but didn't, was the guy that did so many things with his mouth and mic. I guess his age counted against him.
