The ‘One Corner’ dance is catching a lot of heat these days, having been described as ‘foolish’, ‘demonic’, and now dangerous.
Only one song Patapaa do and all this criticisms!
Latest to add his voice to the chorus against ‘One Corner’ is minister Sonnie Badu. According to the gospel artist, the way people participate in the dance is dangerous and could lead to someone being killed.
Taking to social media, Badu wrote:
“It’s getting dangerous. I saw someone climb an electric pole, I saw someone climb a tipper truck, I saw someone run under a car, and I saw someone dancing while cars were moving. Now this is getting out of hands. Do you want to wait until you hear somebody dead before you say ‘one corner’ killed him?” he queried.
“I’m getting concerned about the rate at which people are taking this to the extreme. I’ve seen people jump over people just to demonstrate what the ‘one corner’ means. I believe there would have been restrictions if it happened in other countries,” he added.
Badu, however, recognized Patapaa’s hustle, and said the young man deserves praise for managing to get such a huge hit song and starting a trend.
“In fact, it’s a good trend. Once in a while, good trends are interesting. We had ‘the ladder’, ‘two thowzing’, ‘kpakpakpa’… This could be an interesting trend that started in Swedru. Nobody is taking away the young man’s hard work. It is his time to shine but we have to make sure that if we know it’s his time to shine, then let’s people who know they can help this guy, help him,”
