After I saw Kevin do his unique version of the Azonto at the Choice FM studios, I couldn’t help but ask where he’d learnt to do it like that.
I didn’t learn; I just knew you had to point your fingers. I asked somebody what it was, and they said it’s a dance where you point your fingers, I was like “that’s cool I know how to do that”.
Okay, so he’s never seen it done before. I’ll forgive him a little then.
Asked whether or not he was a fan of the music which the dance arose from, Afrobeats, Kevin honestly answered:
The one time I listened to it was at the station.
I have to [like Afrobeats] cos I did the dance! I did the dance which means I embraced it. You can’t do a dance to a song and say you don’t like the song, that would make you a hypocrite for doing the dance. Then I’d be a jackass.
With his newly learnt dance move under his belt, did Kevin have any plans on being the Azonto ambassador for America and teaching his friends?
No! But what I am gonna do, is do it a couple times when I’m in a bad situation, use it as a distraction. “Hey Kevin, you got my money?” “Azonto!”
My friend will be like, “What are you doing?” and then run.
Erm… At least you’ve found a use for it.
