World Of Dance Entertainment for me is an opportunity to show what I already know how to do best, But now am going to bring a twist to the table of the management, because looking at the direction of the brand since their inception, I think it’s more of a contemporary hip-hop and break dance, But now am bringing in more of a traditional, cultural and dramatic feel to the system which I believe will be popular and widely accepted by the board. And I am looking forward to a synergy that will last for a long period of time as God please.
