May 2, 2020

One thing that will always remain memorable for all of us is the choreography we all did while growing up. For some people, it was at the end of the year party; for some others, it was church anniversary. Either ways, we had fun. This post is a throwback. Can you remember any of the songs?

This was the first apparel.

1. “I’m Trading My Sorrows” – Women of Faith

You really should listen again. The song is still a bop.

This song shook everywhere when it came out, hahaha.

3. “Kokoroko” – Keffee and Timaya
