‘We don’t accept this type of dance here’ – Paramount Chief fumes at dancers who portrayed twerking as ‘borborbor’
Paramount Chief

Paramount Chief of Anfoega Traditional Area, Togbe Tepreh Hodo IV, has in an unceremonious way stopped a group of dancers from portraying the ‘borborbor’ dance in an indecent manner.

As a tradition of the Ewes in the middle belt of the Volta Region, the dance is a very prominent feature at every public gathering. Having been performed since time immemorial, it is not only delightful to its people, it is seen as a tradition that has been passed on from one generation to the other.

Thus, when a group of dancers in an attempt to ‘spice up their show’ introduced sexually suggestive dance moves also known as ‘twerking’, the natives and their traditional leader could not watch on, unconcerned. So at that very durbar of Chiefs during the Easter celebrations at Anfoega Akukome on Saturday, April 16, the Paramount Chief called off the group’s performance.

The dancers, however, defied the orders and continued the performance which prompted the Paramount Chief himself to step in and show them the exit. “There is something called protocol but I will break it,” Togbe Tepreh Hodo IV said when he grabbed the microphone from the MC.
