    Uncle Femi, I always enjoy seeing you and your band perform. Though, I wasn’t at the said NY show, I’m however sure that your audience had the time of their lives. Now, if I must provide some feedback, I think your dances need to hit the gym sharp sharp. No doubt that they are good dancers, with rich repertoire of dance moves; I must however say that here in the west, people could careless how good they are as dancers if they don’t look good. Please don’t get me wrong, they are all beautiful women, but its not a good look if their big belle dey giggle all over the place when dem dey dance. By the way, I’m compelled to write this after my beautiful hispanic lady friend mentioned this at your show in TX

    Nigerians don’t know how to brand themselves those Femi dancers in their eyes they think all they need is to be good dancers but they forget that in entertainment business you have to be easy on the eyes as well, be a total package. You see pot bellied unshaved Comedians, Musicians OAPS and our Actors and Actresses, well that’s a looooooooong story for another day.
