GGB DANCE GROUP TAKES NO PRISONERS

 

GGB/Mystreetz magazine

The Nigerian music industry has joined the global village. The standard for judgments are basically out of the roof and there seems to be no more places for mediocrity. The best of the rest are even striving to keep up to stay in vogue. Music videos are no more for the fainthearted, the level of creativity/ standard film elements and budget that goes into the entire shooting process are the key ingredients to a successful video. Apart from the creative prowess from the director, the element of vixens and dancers are paramount.

Several dance groups and vixens have taken over the screens. The likes of GGB dance group spicing up our music videos are some of the major delights we are glued to while watching the trending videos. We had a conversation with the group and this was how it went down.

WHAT ARE THE COMPLEXITIES OF DANCERS/VIXENS IN THE NAIJA MUSIC INDUSTRY?

First and foremost we see ourselves as creative entertainers, gifted with
diverse gifts – dancing, acting, modeling etc; in due time, we shall
unveil the other parts of what we do. One of the basic challenges is
people not taking us seriously as creative professionals, because the dance
industry isn’t as recognized, structured or organized as other
entertainment sectors.

Thanks to SPAN, Kaffy, DNMT and a lot more, who unarguably paved the way
for dancers in Nigeria, we leaned on that platform and used that as a
stepping stone for our own success story. Working with a professional
management team, M.et.al has been of great value; we have all grown
individually and as a team.

WHAT ARE THE MOST INTERESTING AND DIFFICULT MOMENTS?

 

Let’s start with the difficult moments. We don’t have enough dance
facilities in Nigeria; we have very limited numbers of dance studios in
Nigeria. Among the few that we have, there are still a few that are very
equipped with good facilities so that makes it difficult for us to achieve
a lot. Another difficulty we face is the fact that there aren’t enough
platforms that encourages dancing as a brand.

It is a blessing to earn a living doing what we love to do. Our best
moments as a group is when we are working, either during rehearsals,
performing on stage, having creative sessions with our team, basically when
we are together.

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE GROUP?

 

Our major aim is to create progressive platforms for the dance industry. We
hope to inspire and encourage young women, and ultimately every youth out
there to be bold enough to pursue and achieve their dreams. We are
developing other parts of the company, which we believe will aid our goals.

THE GROUP

G.G.B an acronym for Girls and Guys Got Bold, a simple phrase that stands for strength in believing in oneself. The crew was founded and is led by young dancers and choreographers namely Ifeoma Efiokwu (E4ma), Roseline Afijie (Liquorose) and Emmanuella Odiley (Ellaley).

They started their professional careers as individual dancers, with E4ma being a semi-finalist at the Malta Guinness Street Dance contest and the Maltina Dance All Family Contest, while Ellaley and Liquorose started appearing in music videos to hone their skills and meet other dancers/choreographers.

After appearing individually in well over 30 music videos, performing alongside various artistes around Nigeria, participating in several dance contests and TV commercials, they came together to form the GGB Dance Crew.
