Popular dance ‘One Corner’ is “foolishness,” says Ghanaian Broadcaster and Communications Consultant, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD).
Speaking to Kwasi Aboagye on Neat FM, he lashed out at people who have helped the dance go viral.
“For me I think it is foolishness! Certain things happen and nobody is able to speak frankly about it. Tell you what, no sibling of mine will dance to this, and even if any of my family members decide to do this one corner dance, their father or their mother will call and ask are you foolish or you are mad?”
Darkwah also questioned the importance or relevance of the dance to the image of Ghana.
“It is bad when the name of Ghana is dragged into something like this. A lot of educative things have come up in Ghana; a lot of brilliant personalities have visited us here. So let us also project those positive things too about our country. There are a lot of things in the world; there is good and there is bad, some are true some are lies. The one corner dance, I think we should ask all those happily dancing, the reason why they danced to the beat of the song. Is the person just excited, or the person is using it to provoke or tease someone? What exactly is the reason why they engage in this ‘one corner dance,?” stressed Darkwah.
“If it is not foolishness then what is it? If people shake their buttocks and roll on the floor and share on social media and it is not foolishness, then what is it? It is either madness or sickness. I think sometimes we should be bold enough to say things just the way they are. I am not saying this out of anger, jealousy or with any hard feelings but I insist it is foolishness.”
The ‘One Corner’ Dance was initiated by a Swedru based artiste, Patapa.
A number of public figures including Shatta Wale, Emelia Brobbey and Akyere Bruwaa have praised the act for being innovative and joined in the frenzy.
