Ghanaian dance artist and choreographer Michael Amofa, also known as Incredible Zigi, has commended Ghanaian musicians Stonebwoy and Medikal for their recognition and appreciation of dancers as important players in the entertainment industry.
Incredible Zigi told Berla Mundi on TV3 that Stonebwoy and Medikal are among the few artists in Ghana who value dancers for their talents and contributions. He said that they do not just book dancers for shows; they also make them feel respected and appreciated.
“They really appreciate dancers. I work with them more often. These are the few people who really appreciate dancers for who they are cos they make you feel like you are also doing something,” he said.
He added that Stonebwoy personally reached out to him during his African tour and assured him that he was impressed by his work and wanted to work with him.
“He texted me when I was on my African tour, and he was like ‘Yo, we dey see what you dey do, don’t think we no dey see, forget anybody who is trying to put a blind to what you are doing, you are doing the most and I’ll love to work with you’,” he revealed.
He said that after working with Stonebwoy on the “Everlasting” music video, they started working together full time and he became part of his team.
He also expressed his aspiration to work with international dance artist and R&B singer Chris Brown.
“I’m looking forward to working with Chris Brown really bad. He is a good dancer, and he appreciates dancers,” he said.
Incredible Zigi is credited with creating the popular dance steps PILOLO and KUPE that have been used by global stars such as Janet Jackson and featured on NBA 2K20. He has also worked with musicians such as Vic Mensa, Yemi Alade, Shatta Wale, and Davido. However, he missed the chance to work with Beyonce on her album after missing her DM.
