Nigerian dancer, choreographer, dance instructor Kafayat Oluwatoyin Shafau, popularly known as Kaffy, has apologized for ripping apart fellow entertainer David ‘Davido’ Adeleke.
Kaffy, who is the founder of Imagneto Dance Company had earlier today (Wednesday) blasted Davido over how he ridiculed and fired her dancers even after they had prepared for weeks to perform for him.
Kaffy slammed Davido, going ahead to call him a mother**ker and an ingrate.
It was gathered that Davido had contracted her dancers to perform with him at the 3Thrones Concert last weekend, but ended up firing them just as they were about to go on stage.
In a very lengthy statement on social media, the dance queen has now apologized for her actions, and explained how dance has become a “building block of the entertainment” industry.
The statement reads: “I want to start by apologizing profusely for my profanity. It’s not how I roll .I am one person who promote discipline and respect among dancers towards their clients and one another.
“However this issue is REAL. We MATTER and deserve respect as we have become part of the building block of the entertainment world.
“We communicate with our bodies what words and sound can’t express. We paint a picture that defies laws of nature ND produce masterpieces beyond mere imaginations.
“It requires a lot of brain power to begin to be a dancer not to talk of the ability to command muscles people can’t imagine using and that is still underrating the Power of the Art of Dance.
“From youth empowerment to mind empowerment, it is the least looked into form of psychological, physical and spiritual reformation.
“And I can categorically tell you alot of lives have been changed for the better because we danced.
“So we matter beyond the dance floor we matter against all odds of societal definition of success we matter, thrive and we rule.
“So it is time we take control and have a voice. Create structure that will protect us from further disrespect and I will do all in my power to continue to protect dancers. I know great minds out there in our world that will rise up too. It’s been years and I have been quiet for too long.
“And this is not just in Africa it’s everywhere.
“Davido was just the last straw. It didn’t start with him but we can put a stop.
“Thank you to all who support this fight. God bless #Dancers #Dancetrepenuers #Danceteachers #Dancelovers #Dancemoms #Dancedads #Respecthedance.”
