Summary

Music is the food of the soul. It is not complete without good dance steps. So many dance steps have been invented over the years. The Galala dance, for instance, was introduced around the 1990s.

Later on, came the Azonto dance, which originated in Ghana and was later embraced by other West African countries. The Azonto dance reigned from 2012 to 2015. The dance involves the movement of your hands and legs.

Shekere dance came into existence in 2016. The name was derived from the Yoruba word “Shekere,” which is a musical instrument that is round in shape and covered with a net. On the net, there are beads which make the Shekere sound whenever it is being used.

The Akaida dance started in 2017 and it was mostly danced by Ghanaians before it was embraced by other West African countries. The dance entails a side by side and upper body movement.

Then came the Shaku Shaku and Gwara Gwara in 2018. The Shaku Shaku dance involves the movement of the legs, hands and your neck, while the Gwara Gwara dance is a South African dance which involves the movement of the legs and waist.

Zanku dance (gbe body e) involves mostly the movement of the legs and your hands. The dance was first performed by popular rapper, Zlantan ibile. It started in 2018 and is still danced by many today.

A new dance has surfaced. This dance involves you removing your clothes and showing a vital part of your body. It is obvious the dance started in a West African country but it is yet to be common in Nigeria

The question now is, will Nigerians embrace this new dance? Watch the dance below:
