The crazy world we live in. The world is crazy.It has always been.Those who are yet to realize this obnoxious fact are probably crazier.This craze actually have different shades. From ethinic to religious and the beat goes. Somehow enormous efforts are required to keep our sanity as one generation changes the dynamics of our society and leave the previous struggling to catch up with the realities of the times. If you are a 70's kid like me, you probably saw your dad wearing bell- bottom trousers, high heeled shoes, large collar shirts and the legendary afro hair.Our mothers couldn't resist these blokes and probably got pregnant annually for them.Few years later, that became the most ridiculous thing to wear.A decade later, it returned and became the most desirous. What we laughed at, we became partakers of.We crazy. In the early 80's , Micheal Jackson transformed from a thick-afro wearing dude to a Jerry-curled dangling superstar with his Thiriller hit.It ushered in a dawn that proved that blacks could have their hair curled if they wished.Everyone rushed in. The relaxer industry boomed.Our mothers who had the guts to attempt it faced alot of condemnation.They were the 'daughters of Jezebel'. Our father's went after the girls that had the curls but restrained their wives from it.The presumed 'daughters of Jezebel' were ridiculed on the streets and were considered as the portrait of the ungodly.They were almost lynched in the church.Today, pastors wife adorn themselves with curls of different colours, shades and styles.What we criticized, we became partakers...We Crazy. We all love to dance.Those that don't publicly, actually do so in their closet.This keep musicians in the business and producers cooking up beats to keep us on our toes. The dance steps keeps changing more rapidly than the beats. Tony & Orlando popularized the breakdance and Micheal Jackson introduced the moon walk.The 80's in Nigeria came with the 'garbage' dance, then came 'shuffle',next came 'garala' popularized by Daddy Showkey and the Ajegunle kingpins. Awilo Logomba and the macossa rave almost made us deaf.In a short while, the 'swoor' , yahoozee, Alanta, Ethigi, Azonto,Shoki, and then .....'Shaku Shaku' cometh. Dance steps has generated controversies amongst the various fabrics in our society. There are the naysayers who say it is improper to display those dance moves in Church especially because of its 'secular' source.Infact, one lady had to sing a song titled ' Azonto for Jesus' to incorporate it into the church. Falz got a group of hijab-wearing girls to dance Shaku Shaku and the religious Muslim folks went bunkers. Some religious christian folks say it is ' actually 'shakle,shakle' with an origin from hell which tries to put the dancers in bondage.So hey! dance it at home, at parties and anywhere else but within the confines of your religious houses.We crazy. Today, we heard there's a ' Kupe challenge' and group of young folks are doing the dance moves and flooding the Internet. ....then came the 'Idibala challenge' wherein the dancers falls down intermittently to the rhythm of the song like they died suddenly.It appears the Mountain of fire ministries ' fall and die' prayers for the wicked is begining to crystallize.

Funny part is, one guy remarked that as easy as the dance routine is, some folks won't even fall properly.Lol.Come to think of it, people who strive hard to stay alive, now dance to a song that suggest they die and music tend to make the process appealing for them. In truth, if crazy was a continent, the earth would be it's twin.

We crazy, We mad!
