Over the past year, a new dance craze has popped onto the Ghanaian music scene and has been making waves across West Africa and beyond.
It is called “Azonto” and calls for dancers to sort of act out their occupation. It has spread out of Ghana and has become a rage in Ghanaian communities in the US and Britain.
Anchor Marco Werman talks to the BBC’s Alex Jakana, who recently returned to London from experiencing the Azonto craze.
