As stipulated by the organisers of the competition, each family was to consist of five persons and the Atuonwu family had Samson Atuonwu, Michael Atuonwu, Jekeygreen Emmanuel, Confidence Atuonwu and Otagwanyo Mathew gallantly representing the family. The trio of Samson, Michael and Jekeygreen are students of Theatre Arts Department in Nasarawa State University, Keffi.      
 
The Atuonwu family were adjudged to be the best family in the competition as throughout the competition they were never put up for eviction, not even once! their routines were always impressive to the judges at all times, always perfect in their performances, they had the talent, the energy, the unity and the cooperation.
Speaking to Divinelove Udorji after the finale show, Michael Atuonwu said;    
 
"It was an exciting experience. We don't feel any less excited. A lot of families started the journey but we ended up 2nd, so that makes us champions too. The difference between us and the winner is the prize. Thanks to Maltina for putting up such an amazing show and a platform where talents are nurtured and showcased". Michael said
     
On what the family intends using the prize money for, Samson said; "Been that dance is what brought the fortune, we intend to invest in that talent".
When asked the lessons the competition had taught them, Jekeygreen reveals;
"One basic thing we learnt from Maltina dance all is time maximisation, unity and resilience". He said  
 
The trio who are members of the reputable dance group "The Elevatorz NG" have indeed proven that dance runs within the family, as the trio and other members of The Elevatorz NG dance group had some years ago offered a mind blowing performance in Nigeria's Got Talent Show, and another adorable dance performance in Dance-With-Peter Competition of which a member of the dance group (Kelvin) won the competition. They further gave another remarkable dance performance in Korea and other numerous performances in and outside Nigeria.
