    Naija killing it on the world scene right now. One of the reasons is that every song is accompanied by a video....something that soca musicians would be wise to copy.

    socapineman and tikreyol like this.

    Maaaaaaaan, I wish when you do these threads you address it from a historical perspective .......meaning, we been there done that.......they not doing nothing my Generation didn't do in he 80's and and 90's.......say what it is...the millennium generation ain't shit.......I said It.....because you don't want to say it..,..,.,



    The Black yutes from NYC, Chicago , Compton, etc....... Made and created history.....


    What they are doing is nothing more or better than what we did....


    The Wop


    The Running Man...


    The Butt


    The Bogle


    The Humpty Dance



    Etc.......



    You doing an injustice.........there is no creativity regarding Dance, with the exception of the Yardies......these yutes just not interested ...




    You said it best....and I remember the phrase...." The thing come full circle........."





    So these African cousins of ours...ain't doing nothing the Black youths didn't do in the 1920s, 30s 80s...90s......this Generation are not innovators.........say what it is !

    They now getting their shine !



    But continue.....like the videos !

    So...to answer your question....yes, I have seen that before, it is called poppin with freestyle, was done in Cally and NYC in the 70's and 80's .....pull up Soul Train line dance ...there were pop lock dance groups before breaking that did it way better.....just putting it in perspective for you !


    This is Cally...'81





    And they got it from the groups that were on Soul Train in the early 70's!

    Carry on.....but I will always stick by my claim.....unless over the up coming posts you can prove me wrong...

    But the Black Americans are the World's Greatest Dancers......more so the Generation from the 30's and the 70's. !

    [QUOTE=trinifrombx;4576594]Ghana have the best Dancers



    Yeah it seems like Ghana and Nigerian on their own level. Pineman i agree that american ran this thing for decades but you have to give it to the africans these days. I don't know about you but these moves are creative and fresh. The africans bringing their own vibe to the things.
