  2. The Ugandan dance was not captured well and specified otherwise our dances are better than showed in the clip….please look for a better one. Otherwise I love what I see my African people are very creative HalleluYah

  3. MY FRIEND YOU DON'T KNOW ALL DANCE FROM AFRICA YOUR VIDEO IS USELESS, GO AND CHECK HOW MANY COUNTRIES ARE THERE IN AFRICA CONTINENT AND YOU WILL FIND OUT ABOUT THEY TRADITIONAL DANCES

  4. I truly enjoyed watching this video as I love African dancing and I'm a Black American (hoping to visit the Motherland one day to see some dancing up in person). I wish you could do a video that just covers dances from the entire continent as I believe that no matter where you go in Africa, you will find the different dances intriguing and beautiful. I especially love the dancers in Mozambique, both Congo countries, Angola and Cameroon. Shout out to all my African sisters and brothers—love and peace!
