When I saw this video floating around the interwebs I saved it immediately. I keep watching it over and over. Why? Because I friggen love Afro-Pop dance, AND I am a rhythmless black girl. And as a rhythmless black girl, I appreciate dancing in a way that only a rhythmless black girl can.
However, I had one of my readers tell me she was disappointed that I would celebrate a white woman, and that based on this single post she’d be unfollowing. Which is interesting, because my blog is my business and as a black woman in business, it’s disappointing when Black folks are so quick to cast you aside if you share a difference in perspective.
I would say I’m fairly woke. Am I the captain of the woke squad? No. So if you follow this blog because you are looking for woke news 24-7 you are in the wrong space. If you think white people won’t creep up on here from time to time, you’re still in the wrong space.
I write about things that interest me, from pop culture, beauty, and fashion. My hope is that these things will interest you too, but from time to time I will share trending topics that may fall outside of what you expect. And we may not always see eye-to-eye, which is okay for me, and I hope it’s okay for you, too.
Now, according to her Instagram (access it HERE), the wife’s name is Katy and she is a London-based dancer.
Here’s what she had to say about the dance:
So we told everyone we weren’t going to do a first dance (as in choreo). Jeff told me he didn’t wana do it because he knew I wouldn’t be able to keep it a secret so last min he said let’s do one! We had like 3 reh in our front room …@Yemialade Jonny
Watch the video here (for the African dance skip to minute 1:30):
Is she another “basic Becky” being applauded for being basic, or is her sudden internet “fame,” deserved?
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
