From the ‘Azonto‘, to the ‘Odi‘, to the ‘Gwara Gwara‘, it is clear that afro-beat jams and artists often give rise to numerous dance moves but it is one such dance that has Kenyan based dance crew Unikk Movement enjoying well over a million views on YouTube.
Created in West Africa and made famous by a Mr. Eazi jam, the ‘Akwaba’ is a seemingly simple dance but watch how Unikk Dance Crew turn it into three minutes of absolute epicness!
Shot here in Nairobi, Unikk Dance flex their dance prowess in that video by showcasing a number of other moves as well, and if this video is proof of anything, it’s that there definitely is a growing fan base and fan love for these kinds of videos. That dance is growing and is being appreciated more.
I mean, no celebrity cameo and look, over one million views strong!
The crew is comprised of a number of dancers both male and female, who each bring a level of uniqueness to the crew (hence their name Unikk).
Here’s a look at some of the ladies from the crew.
