Dance group honours Pokello

HARARE - Bulawayo-based dance group Antivirus has released a music dance video titled Pokello Dance.

The dance video is in honour of former Big Brother Africa contestant Pokello Nare whose star has soared ever since she starred on the continent’s foremost reality contest.

Antivirus is made up of Ricco Andrews (24), Victor Madzura (24) and Prince Dube (21).

The Bulawayo group believes their dance will create as much impact as Pokello did.

“It (the dance) was inspired by Pokello mainly because she represented the country on another level.

“She managed to get the attention of many countries and she did us proud,” said Andrews.

“We want to create a local dance that will compete on an international level like Azonto, Kukere and other popular dances.”

He added that the dance video was not meant to discredit the Harare-based socialite.

“Some people think it’s a subliminal message to Pokello but it is not. She is actually our friend.  If anything, she was actually asking why we did not feature her on the song.

“The problem we had was that during the time we were shooting she was very busy.Right now we are trying to push it onto the regional and international market. We are targeting Trace, Channel ‘O’ and other channels to market it,” he said.

Antivirus started off as a dance group but has now decided to venture into singing.

“We are now into singing as well to help with our dances and we have a dance studio at which we help teach different dances,” said Andrews.
