Music Business: (Video) Meet the C.E.O Dancers – @CEOdancers

I told you all in a prior post that I LOVE to dance and the art form of dance in general. I also said I felt Nigeria/Africa’s music industry needed a healthy infusion of really strong dancers in the industry to push the contemporary Nigerian music sound on the global front.

Well, AML reader Chika Uwazie, Founder and current graduate student at Georgetown, who also loves dance, sent me a link about the ladies below. Initially they did not look familiar to me. But, I realize I have seen them perform, via online video clips, with D’Banj at the Koko Concert.

“CEO Dancers are an all female dance group originally from Nigeria and South Africa. Their main style originates from Africa, with influences from classic Nigerian artist Fela Kuti to modern mainstream artist Fally Ipupa from Congo. However individually they are talented in Street, Contemporary, Vogue, American styles and Dancehall.

Having been together for two years and sharing the same passion for dance, this group of young women genuinely get along. Being the first dance group in the UK to have worked with the likes of D’banj, 2face, Dr Sid, MI and Tiwa Savage.

With Ezinne’s entertaining flair, Soliat’s flexible body and Nqobilé’s fierce presence they bring a high energy performance in addition to their comedic personalities.”
