Revered Nigerian dancer and choreographer, Kafayat Shafau-Ameh better known as Kaffy, has lost her mum. She passed on at the age of 82.
Kaffy made this known on Monday via her Instagram page.
Sharing a video of herself dancing with her late mother, Kaffy wrote: ”Mama has gone to Rest! #82”.
Kaffy’s dancing career took off after she went to an event to perform onstage by someone who spotted her when she used to go to the National Stadium during weekends for dance rehearsals and workouts.
In 2006, Kaffy led her dance group to break the Guinness Book of Record for “Longest Dance Party” after they danced for 55hours and 40minutes. She is currently a dance instructor who has developed innovative visualisation-based methods for teaching dance and dance fitness in an accelerated-learning format
