We all know that dance is a universal art. Different types of dance forms have evolved over the years ranging from Crunk, Shuffle, Harlem shake, Crip walk, Popping, Locking, Break dance and the likes.
We have also had countries and sect of people come up with their own dance moves. However in recent times, the two most popular dance moves which seem to have taken over the global scene are our evry own Azonto and Gangnam Style.
Personally, I think the Gangnam has a larger audience than Azonto even though critics say that it is a rip off of the Azonto. Whatever the case may be both dance moves keep cashing and drawing in hundreds and hundreds of lovers to it, through tutorials and parody videos all over the internet.
I have heard some people say, like all dance moves come and go the Azonto- Gangnam style is just a phase or era. Hmm, is that true? I know some are itching to make your pick based on one queer reason or another but wait a minute below is something brief on the dance forms you should consider before you make your decision.
Originally from Ghana, this dance is the fever that has dominated club, parties and tutorial videos all over the internet. According to Wikipedia, the dance “incorporates complex co-ordinates body movement and non-verbal communication in a rhythmic fashion in very few one-two timed steps. Just like most African dances, knee bending and hip movements are rudiments to dancing it. The dance has effectively evolved from a few rudimentary moves to embrace depictions of ironing, washing, driving, boxing, grooming, praying, swimming, and others.”
Most people say that the dance gained world wide audience from Sarkodie’s tune, ‘You Go Kill Me‘which has over 1,320,420 Youtube views. However, ODG Fuse’s ‘Azonto‘ with 7,633,146 Youtube views, which shows you how to do the azonto steps has pushed the dance beyond far borders.
