Ciara is one hell of a dancer. It's not a surprise to those who've followed her career, but it's always nice to be reminded.
In a series of videos posted to her social media pages, the singer/dancer/actress can be spotted getting down barefoot to Nigerian Afro-beats including "Duro" by Tekno, "Iyanya" by Kukere, and "Bobo" by Olamide.
Ciara worked with Nigerian choreographer Kafayat Shafau-Ameh and her dancers. Together the two created a magical collaboration. The women killed the dances, including the Shoki and Azonto, on the streets of Lagos, Nigeria, and it looked like they all had a blast.
