This genre includes body popping, threading, house, creep walks etc. Everything that portrays the hip hop culture. For the purpose of this competition, the hip hop genre includes Nigerian dance hall moves like the Alanta, Etighi, Yahoozie and others.
Choice of music can either Nigerian or foreign. The larger the variety of steps and moves in any category the better the chances at wining. Please note that the couple category can be male/female, female/female or male/male. Groups can mixed or single sex.

This genre includes 5 latin dance styles. There will be no Latin solos but each couple will be expected to do one of the following: jive, cha-cha, rumba, samba and Paso-double.
However, in the group category, the choreography can be a mixture of two or more of the latin dance styles. It can also be just one. A little Nigerian flavor is encouraged.

The contestants are expected to do songs that demonstrate the singer’s full ability in singing and dancing. We seek a top-quality, healthy, and unique vocal ability, which must be accompanied by good choreography. Judging criteria will evaluate, among other factors, vocal quality and matching dance ability. Therefore, singers are encouraged to ensure that these selections represent the full spectrum of their vocal and dance abilities. Contestants in this category are allowed to do music from any genre and culture and can be accompanied by live instrumentalist (recommended) or a recorded sound track. Voicing of any kind will not be permitted on any sound track.
