When it comes to Dance in Nigeria, the first name that comes to mind Kafayat Shafau Ameh known with her stage name Kaffy not to say there are no other female dancers in Nigeria, but she paved the way for others to follow suit.
She is a Nigerian, award winning and record breaking dancer, dance instructor, fitness coach and founder of Imagneto Dance Company. She is also a mother of two beautiful children whom she described as lovers of her craft especially her son, Sean who she said loves to split.
She has featured in so many Award Winning musical videos both in Nigeria and Abroad. She’s without a doubt, a force to reckon with!
Though relentless and full of ideas and energetic, but there are bad days too, even for the strong.
She made the shocking revelation during a recent interview with Sun Newspaper when asked how motherhood transformed her.?
You must be thinking, “how is it possible that someone so energetic and creative, be depressed”? Not to worry, she answered that already!
Kaffy has this to say : “there are times you get frustrated with everything around you and you feel the entire world is going to crush on your head. You just feel down but then, you need to do stuff because you are a mom. You see, there is genuine love that radiates from your child to you, and regardless of what is going on in the world, you know this child loves you and the love is always fresh. And so I learnt to lock into that love and use it as a springboard to forge ahead, and then i begin to see that God loves me so much that He decided to bless me with a child”.
At the Headies in 2018, she won a Special Recognition Award for her significant contribution to Nigeria’s Entertainment. Who would have thought a dancer, let alone, a Female Dancer would win an award in Nigeria? She keeps setting the pace!.
Depression is never an easy thing to admit to, but when one does, it deserves an applause ?
