Nigerian dancer, choreographer and dance instructor, Kaffy took to Instagram on Wednesday to address the issue of Artiste not treating dancers right.
HKN boss, Davido unfortunately took the heat over Kaffy’s outburst.
In a video post, Kaffy said Davido had fired some dancers as they were about to take the stage after practicing for weeks and him agreeing to work with them.

The Dancer later apologized for her outburst on Instagram.
She posted an image of herself with other dancers with the caption:
“I want to start by apologizing profusely for my profanity. It’s not how I roll .i am one person who promote discipline and respect among dancers towards their clients and one another.
However this issue is REAL. We MATTER and deserve respect as we have become part of the building block of the entertainment world. We communicate with our bodies what words and sound can’t express. We paint a picture that defies laws of nature ND produce masterpieces beyond mere imaginations.
It requires a lot of brainpower to begin to be a dancer not to talk of the ability to command muscles people can’t imagine using and that is still underrating the Power of the Art of Dance.
From youth empowerment to mind empowerment it is the least looked into form of psychological, physical and spiritual reformation.
And I can categorically tell u a lot of lives have been changed for the better because we danced.
So WE MATTER. beyond the dance floor we matter against all odds of societal definition of success we matter,thrive and we rule.
So it is time we take control and have a voice. Create structure that will protect us from further disrespect and I will do all in my power to continue to protect dancers.I know great minds out there in our world that will rise up too. It’s been years and I have been quiet for too long.
And this is not just in Africa it’s everywhere. Davido was just the last straw. It didn’t start with him but we can put a stop. Thank you to all who support this fight. God bless.”
