Cape Town - Africa is a continent that is rich in different cultures and traditions, and one of the more fun and vibrant traditions is dance.

Dance has been one of many forms of expression, storytelling and enjoyment across the continent and alongside traditional dances.

However, although we may be a united continent, it is no secret, we dance and move to the beat of our own drum - not to mention our own taste in music that best describes who we are as individuals culturally speaking.

In South Africa, the Gwara Gwara dance was made popular by South African dance music artist, DJ Bongz, with the introduction of his hit single “Ofana Nawe,” featuring Sobz.

The dance went viral after DJ Bongz posted tutorials of how to do the dance on his social media streams, and has been featured in the videos of some of the country’s biggest hits, including “Wololo” by Babes Wodumo and “Gobisiqolo” by Bhizer.
