Sometime in January 2013, an opus dance single was released from the stables of one of Nigeria’s favorite gospel greats, Gbenga Adenuga. Titled ‘E be like say’, the track went viral barely few minutes of its online release.
The alacrity with which the track spread across Nigeria, UK, South Africa, Ghana and other countries triggered a huge following for it and this made it a phenomenon of sorts. The track premiered on a lot of blogs/sites and became a hot item on the playlist of people across the globe.
Just when we thought the hype was toning down, the crooner of the ‘E be like say’ gospel dance hit, Gbenga Adenuga, has announced the official unveiling and kick-off of a dance routine search for the track.
Aptly titled “Step Out on “E Be Like Say”, the dance routine search is clearly not a competition but a fun way to find a good and unique dance step for the song.
Interested persons are encouraged to participate without necessarily being a professional dancer.
According to its official release, “This is a dance routine search not a dance competition. Innovation is key. The routine must be simple, fun and easy to follow. It doesn’t necessarily have to be energetic.”
Obviously, this dance routine search is just another fun way to enjoy this trending track. However, the organizers of the search will reward the eventual winner with N250,000 and the finalists will be made to appear on the oncoming ‘e be like say’ video.
