While speaking at the 2023 Lagos Women Dance program on March 4, legendary Nigerian dancer Kaffy advised women to add dancing to their regular routines.
Kaffy noted that dancing is a great remedy for relieving stress, keeping fit, and becoming more productive in life.

“A wellness mind is a productive mind; also, a full belly is productive, but you can have a full belly and still be worried or stressed; I think both should go together. Whatever we are doing for women, we should not forget that the stress of being a woman in Africa is enough to break a woman. So, my message here is to encourage women to understand that health is wealth, but the mind that carries the body is actually the vault of where productivity lies and we need to protect that space.”
Continuing, Kaffy advised:
“So, if the body moves, the mind cannot tell the difference between a body that is moving positively or negatively. Therefore, we always encourage people, even when we use dance as therapy, no matter your negative condition, when you get up and dance, you can never return angry or sad. So, when I talk about being an advocate for dance, it is not only for entertainment but for human excellence. We need to move in order to live.”
In the early 2000s, Kaffy dominated the entertainment industry with her dancing prowess and appeared in videos for music acts such as PSquare.
