The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has commended Nigerians on their ability to create dance styles and music which is now accepted all over the world.
While speaking during the Independence day dinner which took place at the Old Banquet Hall in Abuja, Osinbajo said nobody dances like Nigerians.
The former President who is familiar with the different dance styles further said, “one of the attributes of the Nigerian people is the uniquely confident way we stand out- what many call the Nigerian swag.”
“With dance, whether it is Skelewu, Sekem to Shakiti Boko to Shaku Shaku and the most recent Zanku, I’m sure you all know how to gbese. Gbe body e.”
“All over the world, everybody is gbese-ing now.
“Nobody dances like us. It doesn’t matter whether you are the distinguished Senator Representing Kogi West or the distinguished Senator representing Osun West.”
He added that the Nigerian spirit is indomitable and our languages are taught in countries around the world.
Showing a video of a kindergarten class in China, where the children were learning the Igbo language in their classroom, Osinbanjo said, “Here is the video of a kindergarten class in China, the Children are learning Igbo. Very soon, everyone is going to be speaking Igbo.”
