Growing up in this part of the country is fun, but growing up in the ‘90s is amazing. It is safe to say that the ‘90s kids have the most amazing childhood.
These kids made the colour ‘black and white” very famous because it was the signature colour for any kind of choreography.
Imagine not being a part of the choreography crew?
Let’s go down memory lane and pay tribute to those songs that made us feel fly in black and white, shall we?
DIANA ROSS – HE LIVES IN ME
The famous “Singapaya” song blew our minds, and till date, we do not know what Singapaya means. The verse made all of us move in slow motion and we enjoyed it. Man! We really loved it. We looked forward to moving fast when the chorus starts.
The famous thing about this song is that you will need to wear a serious face, especially during the verse. You sef know. Till date, many of us don’t know what “Singapaya” means.

RON KEN NOLLY- PEACE & JOY
Usually, at every end of the year party, there are two major choreography groups, the jaiye one where you can actually shake body, and the other where you will be solemn all through.
This song is majorly for the ones whom their parents don’t retouch their hair. You would not want to leave Ron for Diana, knowing that your mom will be there live.
The girls who danced this song usually wore long black skirt and rumpled white shirt (with buttons o).
When the song gets to “JUDGMENT COMING!”, the killer move is the raising of hands and closing of the eyes, then you slowly drag your hands to the chest… Your momma starts to feel the judgment alongside her sisters in the Lord
LIONEL PETERSON – JEHOVAH KNOWS
Ok! I’ll still give it to the brethren and their moms with un-retouched hair.
“I will worship the Lord,
For He is worthy;
I will let down my sword,
The Prince Of Peace is His name.
King of the flood,
The Lord is mighty;
The Lord can quench the evil flame.
Peace when trouble blows,
Jehovah sees, Jehovah knows;
He is my peace, when sorrow nears,
Jehovah sees, Jehovah hears.”
These words speak life to the parents and principal watching. The noisemakers in class do not dance this song because it’s too serious.
If you tell mom you are part of a choreography group and you’re dancing this song, be rest assured that your party money will be paid. If you are a girl, be rest assured of telephone wire, if you are a guy, be rest assured of ‘gorimakpa.’

PANAM PERCY PAUL –MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE
This is the main song that made hand gloves and white laced socks to be very expensive. If when you get to the conqueror part, and you don’t have gloves on so that you can shine when you roll your hands for “conqueror and king”, then you have not started, you can stay at the back and cover your face.
This song is for those who come 1st-5th in class; you can’t be an olodo master, which universe? Mtchewwww

I’M TRADING MY SORROWS – WOMEN OF FAITH
Although the song became famous for choreographies in the late ’90s, it was a jam! It swept a lot of people off their feet.
If you just listen carefully, you might still find it interesting. The good thing about this song is that we could wear ordinary polo (white of course) and shirts.
The song did not just go well with rumpled shirts.
