The Abuja Flasher
The volume of the music intensifies. I can see he is eager to start.
“I run a dance school for teenagers and young adults. I also help organize flash mobs to generate publicity for companies and NGOs.”
Why dance? “Dance is a natural way to express yourself. Young people have a lot of energy that must be channeled properly. My company, ReDance Africa, gives youth an avenue to discover their talents. We also provide mentoring to help guide them in making positive life choices.”
“It has also been a positive personal journey for me. Dance has opened up opportunities for me. I have been invited to speak at several youth forums and received awards and recognition for my company’s work.”
He joins the other dancers to start their next routine. With more young people like him, Africa’s future will be Bright.
