Cassper Nyovest finally dances to ‘One Corner’

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest went back on his word to stay away from doing the ‘One Corner’ Dance.

Reason? “If I did that, I will be in the news that I’m on some drugs. They will be like ‘Cassper is on some drugs…we saw a video of him humping…everywhere jumping,” explained the rapper during an interview on Hitz FM.

During an interview on RythmzLive on GhOneTV Wednesday Afternoon, Nyovest was ‘lectured’ by host Regina Van Helvert on how to do the dance.

Patapaa, originator of the ‘One Corner’ dance has come under severe criticism by people who say it is uncultured.

Ghanaian Broadcaster and Communications Consultant, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) recently referred to the dance craze as “foolishness.”

“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?” explained Darkwah in an interviewed with Akwasi Aboagye on Neat FM.

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.”
