Bride wows thousands online by performing a dynamic African-influenced dance routine at her wedding alongside her new husband

Putting on a show: The couple only had a few rehearsals in their front room before the wedding

  • British dancer and teacher Katy Hammond wed her husband Jeff in a beautiful Stafford wedding in October, where the newlyweds danced for their guests
  • In a video that has since gone viral, the couple break into an incredible choreographed dance featuring popular Nigerian moves 

When a British bride was welcomed into her husband's Nigerian family, she made sure to do her homework
Katy Hammond wed the man of her dreams, Jeff, back in October at the Brocton Hall Golf Club in Stafford, in front of their closest family and friends.
But while the day was all about embarking on their happy lives together, the couple also had their own surprise for their guests - breaking into an amazing African-influenced dance during the reception.

In a post on Instagram, dancer and teacher Katy described how the dance was actually a fairly spontaneous idea.

'So we told everyone we weren't going to do a first dance (as in choreo),' she wrote. 'Jeff told me he didn't wanna do it because he knew I wouldn't be able to keep it a secret so last min he said let's do one!'

The pair had just a few rehearsals in their own front room before busting out the moves on the dance floor for their guests.

Even more surprising to their friends and family was how Katy nailed several dance moves popular in Nigeria, such as the Shoki.

Kicking off her shoes, she doesn't take her eyes off her new husband as she rolls back her shoulders and gets into the steps. 

The pair even danced to the tune Johnny by Nigerian artist Yemi Alade.

Throughout the clip, guests are cheering and screeching with delight as the couple move in perfect time.

Another added: ' This made my heart smile! As a Nigerian woman it is beautiful to see her embrace his culture and celebrate it!'

The above was the topic,I did not post it. The person who posted,wanted to share the happiness which has resulted in a slanging match of hate because of their color.

Some of the nicer comments made on the forum in line with mine:

Everybody has their own opinion. I thought it was nice it;s their wedding and they looked like they had the time of their lives. She was beautiful on her day that's what I was looking at while watching THEIR video. If we focus less on race and skin color we could one day realize that we are all human nothing more.
@ Rafael :Thank you .

Oh so that's what have your white ass here on CF, trying to decipher your own dysfunctional love/hate psyche for black folks @Contonila Goodman:  YOUR WHITE BROTHER.  You're disturbed about your brother (man) marrying a beautiful black sister so you enter black forums to solicit black men. Is that a form of retaliation towards your white brother (man) for marrying a beautiful black woman or are you jealous of him @Contonila Goodman ?  Do you want the beautiful love experience of a black person in the same manner of your brother?  I fully understand for I can assure you that the love of a black woman is PHENOMINAL.......lol, lol, lol .  But no worries, your brother love you too...lol, lol, lol

However, I can speak for all black people when I state facts and not my personal opinion.  FACT:  YOU nor any other white trash HAVE THE POWER TO TELL BLACK PEOPLE WHERE TO REMAIN OR TO VIEW SIMPLE AFRICAN DANCE MOVES THAT BLACK PEOPLE PERFORM EVERY DAY AS SOMETHING TO BE AMAZED OR WOWED ABOUT WHEN PERFORMED BY WHITE PEOPLE.

No one has an issue with interracial relationships @Contonila Goodman except racist pretension people like YOU who feel compelled to highlight, praise and elevate white achievements on black forums.  THERE IS NOTHING SPECTACULAR ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE.  The only reason why it is an issue to people like YOU @Contonila Goodman is because of your white need to validate and elevate yourself amongst black people and more than like in your particular psyche, the need to validate and expose yourself to black men.  BLACK COUPLES DO DYNAMIC DANCES TOGETHER ALL THE TIME AND NO ONE FEELS THE NEED TO POST IT ON CF.  So what makes this particular couple dancing news worthy @Contonila Goodman; especially on CF? 

Personally, I really believe it would be more appropriate to put this blog on a white forum amongst white people who would really be impressed by their sister's new found dance moves.  The only purpose it serves on CF is basically to solicit a heated argumentative thread from those of us on CF who are sick and tired of the bs.

Obviously you have the right to your own illusion and delusions.  I am not on CF to educate and dialogue with you or any other white person.  White opinion means nothing to me nor do I feel the need to appease white folks.  However, I have made it my mission to call out the white brainwashing where ever I see it.  YOU, and THIS ARTICLE,  @CONTONILA GOODMAN, IS USLESS BRAINWASHING.

@concious1: "It stands to reason black men who are in love with and proud of their black women and race angers and threatens you...Just look who is talking- then you should have lambasted your black brother for marrying a white woman,what a contradiction ! secondly, if you must know ,my elder brother is and has been married to a black, beautiful and intelligent woman who bore him three lovely children, the eldest now at University to become a Physician in just a few years. Thirdly..stop using "WE..WE..WE BLACK PEOPLE."It shows how confused and deranged your mind is,for you fail to note YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO SPEAK FOR EVERY BLACK PERSON" Not every black person would tolerate your racist and unintelligent ranting at innocent people of any color going about their business weather getting married to a dog or frog,for you to poke your snotty grotty nose uninvited. Please go look for another lovely black man who may want to marry you.That black fella is already TAKEN,,I am so sorry for your disappointment,as that may have been the cause of your frustration and insane ranting.

Bet..you can`t even dance ?

 

Good Bye !!

Wooh @ Contonila Goodman...sounds like you are the frustrated one who needs to erase the filth from your mind, heart and your mouth.  I appeared to have struck a nerve with you, ...ouch!....lol, lol.    I see your true colors shining through @Contonila Goodman.  And so does the CF audience. It's obvious that me and those sour grapes got to your head for your come back was totally irrational, illiterate and unwarranted. You appeared to have ran out of words and rational thought process and therefore resorted back to the bestial barbaric behavioral pattern transmitted through your ancestral genes.  You couldn't keep up the front, could you?......lol, lol 

Obviously you have no good intent or interest in black people other than to whore your white ass on a black forum attempting to solicit ignorant self hating black men.  It stands to reason black men who are in love with and proud of their black women and race angers and threatens you.  Well, deal with it!!!   

YOU nor any other white trash HAVE THE POWER TO TELL BLACK PEOPLE WHERE TO REMAIN OR TO VIEW SIMPLE AFRICAN DANCE MOVES THAT BLACK PEOPLE PERFORM EVERY DAY AS SOMETHING TO BE AMAZED OR WOWED ABOUT WHEN PERFORMED BY WHITE PEOPLE.  Give black people a break with that bs.  We, black people, do many amazing things everyday, can't you tell?  Heck, we survived the Atlantic Slave Trade.  Wish I could say the same for my native American brothers and sisters.

@concious1: True sign of frustration: You speak from the hole in your a**. The lady got married and was dancing with her newly wedded husband,both families -black & white appear to be enjoying themselves,what have they done to you to cause abuse bringing in the politics of the middle east and questioning my ancestors ? You speak from your A** and your brain is just as empty as a used toilet bowl. I do wish you the worst because you wish the worst for your own black brother who got married to a beautiful white girl and both I wish will stay happy til the end of their lives.....and you can remain in your cesspit sucking on sour grapes !


Comment by conscious1 on December 27, 2016 at 3:51pm

I am sure you really mean it when you wish us the worst @Contonila Goodman, that is simply the ways of the white man.  It is very clear that you inherited the mindset of your white ancestors when you wish the worst for others. However and unfortunately for you, what you perceive as filth, frustration and disappointment is called LIBERATION for black folks and it sure feels great to be able to recognize the wolf for who he/she is.    You, @Contonila Goodman are one of those wolves who CAN NO LONGER confine people of color to the hole dug by your ancestors and which is currently being maintained by you, one of the descendants of those evil doers.  Your colorful words cannot hide the truth or convince black people to drink the Kool aid anymore, @Contonila; don't you get it or is your head still stuck in the hole your ancestors dug for us????????

Just to enlighten you @Contonila Goodman, Liberation takes black people out of the environment of those who hate us and moves you out of the "hole" the oppressors prescribed for us black folks.  As a matter of fact, liberation allows me to build mansions so you can masturbate off of your thoughts of holes, disappointment and frustration, but that is NOT happening for those of us who know ourselves.

Btw @Contonila Goodman, did you check out the posting depicting one of your white brothers acknowledgements and confessions?  Stop running away from the truth, take some responsibility and check it out.  Maybe, just maybe you will be better able to really advocate on behalf of black people when you dig yourself out of the hole you are burying your head in and face reality.

http://caribbeanfevercommunity.com/profiles/blogs/get-over-your-f-k...

Just for the record, I would rather fill my head with the so called "filth" that allows me to liberate myself from the sort of filth your ancestors fed black people to keep us subjugated and downtrodden.

Comment by Contonila Goodman on December 22, 2016 at 8:05pm

I know I was born only yesterday `cos I am not yet 50yrs old.,but if you tell me that I was born centuries ago and want to tarr me for another `man`s sin,then please go ahead. You can blame me for all the S*** in BOTH of your lives, if that would ease your frustrations and disappointments,sadly you'll only be sinking deeper into the hole in your filthy minds. lol.

Comment by Yasmin on December 21, 2016 at 1:33pm

@conscious1 Don't waste anymore of your Energy on these Sheeple Uncle Toms Let them continue to bury their heads in the sands.

Comment by conscious1 on December 21, 2016 at 12:45pm

@Contonila Goodman....And there goes the problem.  Your words sound nice, but at the end of the day you suggest that black people consume the same filth, "the holy bible", that was/is one of the tools used by your ancestors to contaminate the black mind and which to this day keep blacks in the hole. 

Yes, you/we came into this world without any permission given and yes you/we have no choice as to who our ancestors are, but the reality is you inherited the same mindset to keep blacks oppressed and to feed black people white lies meant to confuse and fill our minds with self hate.  Problem is your white privileged status still allow you to view us blacks who speak our truth as the problem.  As per your own white arrogance, your truth is absolute and my truth is just the mindset of tainted mind....lol, lol, WHITE ARROGANCE.....So why haven't you dug yourself out of that hole?  The "holy bible"??.....That's your suggestion?  Again I ask, why haven't you dug yourself out of that hole?  .smh.....  ..Suggest that BS to some of the uncle toms who lend you support on CF.   I abandoned that propaganda years ago.  I am more interested in the degree to which you apply yourself to mobilize and rally your white people against the injustices you all are perpetuating against humanity.  Don't look for support on CF.  That's like preaching to the already converted.  Get your ass on white media and spread the love.......

As the descendant of the perpetrator, don't blame my environment, blame yours............As the descendant of the author of the "holy bible", ....well, just say I'll leave it up to you to decide where to stick that suggestion.

@Lydia....D+ for effort, remember.  Black people own the culture and the dance.  White people are trying to coopt the culture, which includes the dance..........Sounds more like whites want what blacks already have.
