- A white man stunned Nigerians at a Yoruba occasion as he rocked his body to a native song
- In the viral video, the unidentified foreign national was in full Yoruba attire and tried to keep up with the tempo of the song
- Nigerians found his dance moves hilarious, with some wondering if he actually listened to the beats or rhythm of the song to be dancing differently
Nigerians have reacted to a video in which a white man in Yoruba attire was seen 'shaking his body' to a Yoruba song.
The yet-to-be-identified man, in a Twitter video by @Naija_PR, was on full Yoruba wear on an occasion which is yet to be ascertained nor was disclosed in the video.
It certainly is a Nigerian occasion as the female master of ceremony happened to be rendering the native song the foreign national vibed to.
In the viral clip which has been seen by more than 25k persons, there appeared to be other white folks seated in a corner behind the white man.
Another foreign guy appeared to assist his friend as he danced at a distance behind him.
Watch the video here:
Many people commented that the dance moves of the guy were not in rhythm with the song being sung. Others hilariously remarked that he must have committed to memorising a particular dance move he decided to use irrespective of the song being played.
Legit.ng compiled some of the reactions below:
"The fact that Nigerians will hear a foreign song and dance perfectly to its rhythm shows we’re very adaptable set of people. How difficult can it be for someone to move his body to the rhythm of a song. It’s sound for god sake, it’s not like a language you can’t understand."

Another person @idorenyin14 commented:
"I used to think same till one prof explained to us in sch dt y life is simple for dem oyibo is.. They do things according to how they planned it.. If de planned a particular dance step to de club ND de beats change, they stick to de dance step they came with."
"That guy with the longer hair thinks it's choreography..I don't understand the "he lives in me" he is dancing behind."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported how a white man and his groomsmen danced to a Yoruba song at a wedding ceremony.
As the man danced to a Yoruba song, other white men, possibly his friends and family, jumped behind as they tried hard to follow the rhythm of the drum.
It should, however, be noted that at the time of writing the report, Legit.ng cannot independently verify where the event took place.
