What's Your Best Nigerian Dance Ever? by Afam4eva(m): 10:20am On Dec 23, 2012
We've had like a lot of dance steps that have come and gone and all were in vogue at one time or the other. Most of these dance moves were invented in Nigeria while some were imported from other countries.

Which one would you say is/was your favourite?

1) Galala: I don't know who invented this dance move but i know it was made popular by Daddy showkey in the 90s. It's a dance move whereby the dancer kinda slides backwards while a little bit bent.

2) Makkosa: This dance has it's roots in Congo and some other Francophone African countries and it was the most popular dance move in the early 2000. There's no party then that Makkossa won't be played and that you wouldn't see someone dancing the Makkossa dance.

3) Suo: This dance has it's roots in Ajegunle and was popularized by a certain Marvelous benji who alluded in his music about SUO being the in thing after Galala, Konto and makkossa. The dance was also popular.

4) Yahoozee: This dance marked the beginning of the swagalicios group of dance moves. This dance was popularized by Olu maintain using his song of the same title.

5) Alanta: When i first saw this dance move, i was like WTF. How could someone be dancing like a crippled. Alanta is danced in such a way that it seems as if the dancer is being burnt badly by fire. It was popularized by Artquake.

6) Azonto: Azonto is a ghanian invention but as soon as it took Nigeria by storm, it became even more popular in Nigeria than in Ghana. The dance is soo swagalisious...I think one can use this dance step to woo a girl grin

7) Etighi(Kukere): This dance came almost the same time as Azonto and both are dragging for the number one spot. To be able to dance Etighi very well you'll need to have a flexible waist. If you're tick down there, then you'll find it a little difficult to dance.

cool Alingo: This dance move invented by the duo of peter and Paul Okoye of the Psquare fame is a new dance that they posited in their latest video of the same title. The dance looks pretty cool but i want to say that among all the previous dance moves, this one has got to be the most difficult. I think only professionals will be able to dance it. Anyways, let's wait and see as the dance has not taken off totally.

Alingo should not be on the list please. Money is not every,P-square has paid their agent here to glorify this alingo of a dance. Yahozee was attached to Olumaintain's song because it worked, Etigi was attached to Inyanya's Kukere because it worked, and here is our Usher and Chris Brown wanabe try to use money to introduce ALINGO!!! A word of advice....promo is good, but in entertainment a good job does it. Come up with something simple and Nigerian.

I think Alingo is really gradually garnering steam. I saw a dance group dance it in a show. It's just a matter of time before it goes viral.

Op, dadday showkey invented galala. I once saw him demonstrating how he started that dance step. Galala originated from a boxing training session....where he was just punching the bag and stepping back...like continously doing it and galala was there from the body/foot moves.


The thing is, i like all of them....i don crase for all of them.

Na alingo i never understand sha....

I thought so too but i didn't wanna write something i wasn't sure of. Though we all know Galala was usually associated with Daddy Showkey.

who says Alingo is crap. . . The dance moves are very catchy just like the song. . A little bit like Azonto though but more complex, both as a song and dance routine Alingo is hot and at the moment is kicking azonto and etighi to the curbs. . If you say na nonsense try dance am na...lol
