There is a new dance in town that has taken the whole of Ghana and its music scene with a bang. The new dance craze, 'One Corner', has caught up with the people of Swedru in the Central Region.The dance which stemmed from a song from a rising artist known as Patapaa drove patrons “mad” recently at the Swedru Akwambo festival where he was crowned the winner of the season
The high tempo ‘Hi-life-Azonto’ song which has no meaningful lyrics has gained immense recognition in all corners in the Central Region. The dance although a crazy one is accompanied with extra energy that requires one secludes oneself in a corner and perform a sexually stimulating dance.
The ‘One Corner’ song comes with a frenzy paralytic dance which sends dancers wayward – with some of them seeking to hide under cars, motor bikes, gutters among other places upon hearing the song.
Nonetheless, both young and old have since been mesmerized by the One Corner fever as they take turns to show off their skills.
During an interview with Gershon Mortey, Patapaa disclosed some people accused him of using voodoo to enchant listeners to dance to his music but he believes it is the blessings of God that is lifting him into the limelight.
“Some people have accused me of using Juju [Voodoo]. That is never true. I believe it is the work of God. When God blesses you, no man can stop it. I have been in the music industry for years. I know God is paving the way…” he said.
With his followers who go by the name: ‘Patupa Soldiers’, they have pledged their allegiance to the fast rising artiste who further claims others call him, the ‘Swedru Shatta Wale’- thus he carries similar vibrant energy and craft of the dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale.
