Young, witty, entertaining and now a millionaire! That’s our Nigerian dancing sweetheart, Amarachi Uyanne.

Yesterday, Sunday 9th December 2012, the 8 year old dancing sensation was announced winner of season one of the hit reality TV show, Nigeria’s Got Talent. She was presented with the grand prize cheque of N 10 Million by the sponsors of the show, Airtel Nigeria.
