The auditorium was lit with all kinds of clothes, hairstyles, moves, and dancing shoes as one after the other, several dance groups both local and across Africa mounted the stage to exhibit their craft to the heavily packed audience.

The crowd went agog when the “The Afrozig Diva Dance Competition” started. The ladies mounted the stage to serenade guests with performances that kept guests on their feet. Eventually, Crazy Wakiki won the fierce Diva Dance Competition. She’ll be groomed for a year by Incredible Zigi and enrolled in Afrozig Dance Company where she will be trained as a professional dancer and make a living out of it.
