Ghanaians lash out at Chris Brown & Nigeria after Chris gave Wizkid & Nigeria “Azonto” credit

Ghanaians have started expressing their displeasure since yesterday over an interview Chris Brown recently granted, where he gave credit to Nigeria and Wizkid on the Azonto dance that he used in his new “Fine China” video.

Ghanaians mad at Chris Brown for calling Azonto a Nigerian dance

Chris Brown, in the interview recalled meeting Nigerian pop singer Wizkid who taught him the dance move.

Scroll down for the interview…

Below is how a Ghanaian online media reported the story:

It seems Chris Brown coming to Ghana and introducing Nigerian artiste-Wizkid on stage to do Azonto was not a mere mistake. In fact, Chris Brown thinks Azonto is a Nigerian thing…

Probably he is taking the piss out of Ghanaians by failing to credit Ghana with the dance which has gained international recognition…

Talking about his new album ‘X’ and music video ‘Fine China’ on BET 106 & Park yesterday, Chris Brown mentioned that he has incorporated a dance from Africa called Azonto into his dance moves in the video. He even went ahead to request for a tune to be played, so he can demonstrated Azonto to the millions of viewers.

Unfortunately, he linked Nigerians Wizkid to the dance, saying he learnt it from him-that is not so bad. But he categorically added that, Azonto is a Nigerian thing…REALLY?

This is like me going on CNN to say EBA is a Ghanaian food…

Is Chris Brown taking the piss out of Ghana or is it that he does not know the truth about Azonto?

If you are reading this post and you are on twitter, tweet @ChrisBrown and say; For the last time, Azonto is a Ghana dance, get it straight man @GhanaCelebrity!

    Why the fuck are all this puff puff selling and shoe shining Ghanaians shouting about. i know this dance has been a Ghanaian dance for God knows how long since 2001 maybe but never seen the light of the day. in less that a year it got to nigeria the whole world already knows a dance called “azonto”.

    Even your international football stars danced it all the time to jubilate yet nobody recognised it.

    Its time you low life “GHANA MUST GO PEOPLE” start accepting the fact that Nigeria is by no means in the same level with you.

    We accept the fact that you guys “CREATED” the dance but we (Nigerians) “FUNKIFIED” and “AMPLIFIED” it to the whole world.
