Some people think the Hiphop obsession with “rump shakers” is new. Anybody recall Teddy Riley and Wrecks-n-Effect ‘s  “rump shaker” way back in the 1990s – “all I wanna do is put my zoom zoom zoom on your boom boom” . Actually I have seen more “rump shaking” in traditional African dance compared to the stuff in the “entertainment” media.

Most of what people see on “Black Entertainment” TeeVee is tame compared to what traditional Nembe women call “Iworoko” dance. Owerri, Ikwere and many other people around igbo land understand the cosmic relevance of “avu” or “egwu ukwu” or “waist dance”.

In ancient times in Africa, “fertility” Deities are always appeased, men are mesmerized and ensnared through those “waist” dances. I know a few friends that “dumbed out”, turned against friends and family to appease a “big butt and a smile” or frown.
