Shaku Shaku | The Latest Nigerian Wedding Pose

‘Shaku Shaku’ has been embraced by Nigerian brides and grooms and we love it. Guardian.NG gave the best description of what Shaku Shaku is for those who don’t know what it means. The article describes Shaku shaku as “a dance that’s performed by crossing your arms in front of each other at the wrist, widening your legs slightly, and launching into a graceful half-gallop. The rest of the movement involves mainly the dancer’s feet and is largely freestyled.” In case you’re still wondering, here’s a quick dance tutorial

Here are some of our favorite photos of couples and wedding guests giving us Legbegbe or ‘the Nigerian Gangnam style’ as some people refer to it as.
