So everyone, even White Boy; can now Azonto except yours truly. For those who don’t know what Azonto is; it is a dance and music genre originating from Ghana. The dance involves a frenzied set of hand movements that either mimic everyday activities or are meant to signal an often comical intention.
The Azonto wave first swept over UK in early 2012 or possibly in 2011 but I just hadn’t noticed. Ever since, there has been serious flood of Azonto dance off, tutorials and dance frenzy all over social media platforms. YouTube and Tumblr especially.
This post may proof beneficial learners like myself. Here are a few of my favourite ‘Azonto Moments’ that I stumbled ipon while surfing the www. So don’t sit back, put on your dancing shoes and get ready to Azonto.
These Tumblr Gifs are so addictive. This makes me wanna dance!
This girl just puts me in my seat when it comes to Azonto. Damn! She’s also on one of my favourite Azonto Mashup videos on YouTube.

That’s all I’ve got at the moment. But you get the drift. Hopefully if we ever meet at a party somewhere I shall baffle you with me newly-acquired Azonto skills.
