Guinness World Record dancer Kaffy has apologised for her early morning outburst against Davido.
The dancer had used unprintable words against Davido and other entertainers in a video she posted on Instagram over what she termed ill-treatment of dancers at The 3 Thrones Concert.
Apologising on her Instagram account Kaffy said dancers ought to be respected for their role in the industry.
She wrote, “I want to start by apologising profusely for my profanity. It’s not how I roll. I am one person who promotes 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 and 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.
Speaking further, she added, “I can categorically tell you that a lot 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 and God bless dancers.”
