Over the weekend, Chilli, one-third of the legendary American girl group TLC from the 1990s, posted a video of her dancing to Nigerian artist 1da Banton’s hit record ‘No Wahala’ on her Instagram.
The Port Harcourt-native artist—real name Godson Ominibie Epelle—paired up with an esteemed producer named Blaise Beatz, also known for producing ‘Something Different’ for Adekunle Gold, to make the catchy and exciting tune that has a high playback rate.
The virtual challenge, dubbed the #NoWahalaChallenge, has over 52.1 million views on TikTok and steadily grows.
In her video caption, the R&B-Pop icon wrote, “Been wanting to do this 4 a min!!
@badgyalcassiee ur amazing #kidsinthebackgroundtho”.
According to this website, Bad Gyal Cassie was born in the Central African Republic and is a well-known choreographer that went to Juste Debout School to study Hip-Hop dance and technique.
She fell out of love with it and soon after, she travelled to various African countries, and it revived her love for dancing. Now, she teaches Afro Dance classes.
Here’s the video of Bad Gyal Cassie dancing to the popular Afrobeats record that piqued Chilli’s interest.
On Sunday, BBC 1xtra shared that 1da Banton’s official music video for ‘No Wahala’ is
currently #4 on its Official Afrobeats UK Chart ahead of Joeboy’s ‘Sip (Alcohol)’, Tems’ ‘Found’ featuring Brent Faiyaz, Davido and Focalistic’s ‘Champion Sound’ and more.
