The Story Corner : ‘Oyinbo’ On The Dance Floor

By Onozasi


If we refuse to dig it down with in our culture, if we refuse to allow ourselves enjoy the beauty of our culture, then foreigners will take it from us. Why am I talking about this, there is this video of a foreigner at a Nigerian wedding and mehn, while some people were reluctant to dance, mr Oyinbo took down some serious dance steps on the dance floor. I mean, that guy danced so much that the attention fell on him. People were cheering him and the woman who wanted to dance with him had to step aside. Y’all be forming posh while a foreigner grooves to our dance beat, y’all be looking for food and drinks while a foreigner flexes his muscles to the beauty of our instruments and the melody embedded in our songs. People said it’s the jollof rice that is whining his head, whether it is jollof rice or not, he danced so well, so very well. And I know this for sure that  half of the guests there including myself cannot dance like that dude did.

So, when next you are at an event, remember that white dude and flex your muscles.
