Likewise the Calabari dance trend “Etighi” gave birth to songs like Kukere. Not quite long ago “Gwara Gwara ” was the major dance trend which gave inspiration to Patoranking‘s Available.
Presently, Shaku Shaku is the current rave of the streets and almost all the released songs on the streets right now are related to the dance move.

Mayorkun’s BOBO which features label boss, Davido is also another buzzing song on the streets. Although it has a love theme, the tempo of the song is more of a shaku shaku-like.
