First, it was the Solange Bridesmaid Pose, now its the DAB. Trust us Nigerians to make a ‘pose’ trend. According to Wikipedia, The DAB is a simple dance move or gesture where a person drops their head into the bent crook of a slanted, upwardly angled arm while raising the opposite arm out straight in a parallel direction. Phewww!!! 

This is definitely something we’ve seen almost at every Nigerian wedding since 2015 and its stayed on in 2016; everyone’s doing the DAB. We’ve pulled together pictures of Nigerian brides, grooms, grooms men, brides maids, wedding guests, etc. doing the dab.
