Deyemi Okanlawon, a Nollywood actor, was boosting Toyin Abraham as she attempted to entertain the actors and crew of a film with a joyful feet dance.
The actress posted a video to Instagram showing her attempting to perform “Happy Feet,” a popular Nigerian leg work dance. Toyin Abraham could only dance with one foot. She twisted her legs without making any facial or physical expressions. She appeared to be simply twisting her feet on the floor.
Deyemi was praising her for getting the dance right. He was encouraging her to go forward, boosting her self-assurance. She continued to dance. She had to even pull her slippers off in order to dance correctly.
Deyemi, who was praising her at the time, later posted the video to his Instagram account with the caption, “Come watch your world’s finest Toyin Abraham if you’re laughing at my happy foot legwork. In the comments section, please help me name this dancing step! My name is obstinate feet! “..
Deyemi knew she wasn’t doing the step correctly, but he assured her that she was, so he could demonstrate Toyin Abraham’s happy feet footwork to everyone.
