Global Domination: Kaffy Gets London Shaking With Her “Ijoda” Naija Dance Workshop (Pictures)

share on:

As if conquering the world of dance in Nigeria and making the profession more desirable amongst aspiring Nigerian dancers wasn’t enough, Kaffy has set her sights on higher goals. Nigeria’s dance queen brought her dance workshop to London on Saturday 18th April 201 which took place in Dance Works Studio based in Central London.

The workshop which was open to dancers, fitness enthusiast and good timers of all ages combined fitness and dancing as a way to free the mind, body and spirit.

The UK’s entertainment industry came out to show support with the likes of TV and Radio personality Wise Tola, Factory 78 and Vox Africa Presenter Adesope Olajide, UK Based female artists Ada Snoop and the CEO Dancers to name a few all participating and joining in with the fun.

Kaffy showed great enthusiasm and passion for what she does as she encouraged attendees to be free and courageous in their interpretation of dance. Even surprise guest, Congolese international musical sensation, Awilo Longomba got in on the action and had a freestyle battle with Kaffy.

Kaffy addressed the importance of health and fitness and the purpose of the workshops that she holds by saying, “Dance is what we have as a means to change the world. Dance for health, dance for fitness, dance for unity, dance for empowerment. Because, if I can work on you and make you feel good about yourself when you get to work your productivity levels will be up. Why? Because yourself confidence has increased.”

Kaffy went on to explain the purpose of the workshop saying, “I’m not doing this because I’m trying to get my brand out there. Let me tell you something, I started dancing in a country at a time when no young person could go home and tell their parents that they want to dance. I’ve taken the cross for a lot of dancers; I’ve nailed myself to the cross for a lot of dancers. I’ve made some sacrifices. I’ve been called everything. I’ve been called a prostitute and everything.”

She also gave the attendees advice on lifelong decisions “I studied civil engineering. I’m a maths freak. My desire is to change the world. I’m now applying what I learned into what I do right now, there’s a lot of what I learned at school that applies right now. I’m not saying education is anything to toy with but just learn to apply what you learn at school. Don’t just go to school because of mummy and daddy. I took the challenge because I wanted to prove to my parents that anything you do in this world you can be somebody from it.”

Kaffy will be going to the US on the next stop of her dance workshop tour. She also plans to take it to South Africa and around Africa before coming back to the UK to do another round of the dance classes. Judging from the reactions from the class I’m sure there will be a workout DVD in the works and some other treats for dance fans out there looking to get a taste of Kaffy’s fitness and dance routines.

Be sure to be on the lookout for when Kaffy is in a town near you. Amazing dance routines.
