The founder of a group of Nigerian kid dancers, Dream Catchers, Seyi Oluyole, is excited that people have beginning to see how passionate her kids are.
Recently, American music star, Rihanna, shared their dance video on Instagram, and it attracted a lot of attention.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, Oluyole said they had done all they could do to attract the attention of top names in the Nigerian music industry but all their efforts were abortive.
She said, “Many times, if you go through our Twitter, Instagram or Facebook pages, you would see that we have tried to reach out to top celebrities. We would mention their names in our videos and did all sorts to get their attention. I always thought the biggest thing that would happen to the kids was when Wizkid or Davido would recognise and support them. However, it took an international artiste for us to get a huge recognition. When God wants to do something, He does it in a way you can’t fathom.”
Oluyole also revealed, “I cried when I saw Rihanna’s post. I even accidentally broke my phone (mobile) because I couldn’t control myself and it fell. It has not been easy for us, but I usually assured the girls that they would be great if they work hard. Sometimes, I get afraid that things I tell them might never come to pass. There were days I felt like walking away from the children because I was their only hope and I became afraid that I could disappoint them.
