at clubs, house parties and even churches. Everyone has forgotten about the
Yahoozee dance, Alanta dance, Makosa dance, Awilo dance and the likes…it is now Azonto!!!
Azonto dance craze in churches is taken deep root as song leaders,
choristers, Praise and Worship groups and even the younger generation
