Girls got bold – Behind the scenes of the GGB dance team



The GGB Dance Team, a female pop dance group, have become famous and popular in the entertainment world in Nigeria. The group, a three-man team, is one of the very few female dance teams in Nigeria to date.

The crew is made up of young people born and raised in Lagos, namely Odiley Emmanuella, Afije Rose Omokhoa and Ifeoma Efiokwu.

In an interview, the girls revealed the motivation behind GGB and their fame.

Speaking about how they met, Rose said; “At first we were all independent video foxes, just doing our own things. We hardly knew each other. Then, in February 2014, the magic happened. Many vixens had been invited to meet at Clarence Peters’ house for a music video shoot. We were one of them. We looked at each other and secretly admired each other. Ella and Ifeoma had already met and got off to a good start. By the time I met them both and we all started bonding, the rest was history.

On choosing the name of their dance group, Ella said; “On the surface, it’s really quite explanatory. Girls weren’t bold before, but now they are. But on a deeper level, this name represents both our past, our present and our future. It represents a release from the shackles of stereotypes about what a woman should be. It represents freedom.

Speaking on the challenges they faced as a team, Ifeoma said, “To be honest, not everything has always been smooth and creamy for us. We had some difficult times, one of which was our first days. When we started GGB, we faced many challenges as a group due to our individual characteristics.

We were three very different girls from very different backgrounds with different characters and flaws. It was almost impossible to agree on anything because we were all very opinionated at the time. But despite the quarrels, arguments and headaches, we stuck to our dreams. Today we are the best friends in the world.

Speaking further, Rose added; “Getting potential clients to see beyond and bodies to our art. Being a woman in the entertainment business is almost like signing your own death warrant in oblivion. No one is warning you, no one is really telling you how hard it will be to get people to imagine other things you can offer besides sex. And saying no is not easy when your career is on the line. It was difficult at first, but now we have grown to overcome that objectification and build our value-based networks.

Conclusion Ifeoma noted; “Ifeoma: I’ll tell you all this: your dreams are crazy but so is life. If life, as crazy as it is, can be real, then why can’t your dreams come true? You need to stay focused, stay determined, stay resilient. Don’t let anyone put you down or give you a shirt cut. Work hard and work smart. Celebrate the winners, this is how you grow. Continue to build yourself.

Build up your value until it’s worth buying. Then people will come and get you.
