Nigeria music industry over the years has been giving us different dancing steps and style. Starting from Yahooze back in the 2000s to Azonto, Galala, Skemu, Shakti Bobo down to ShakuShaku.
Shaku shaku is a dance that’s performed by crossing your arms in front of each other at the wrist, widening your legs slightly, and launching into a graceful half-gallop. The rest of the movement involves mainly the dancer’s feet and is largely freestyled.
After months of bubbling beneath the surface, shaku shaku has become a bonafide viral hit in the industry.
