In a recent interview with Channels TV, Nigerian dancer Kafayat Oluwatoyin Shafau, known by her stage name Kaffy, revealed that she began dancing as a means to enhance her mental well-being.
Kaffy attributed her upbringing, particularly her parents’ divorce, to her decision to turn to dancing as a coping mechanism.
Eventually, she utilized her dancing abilities to uplift and inspire others during a fitness awareness event held at the Lagos State National Stadium.
In her words:
“Before I even thought of dancing as a profession, I always saw it as something to help me with my mental health.
“And growing up in that average Nigerian household, you have divorced parenting. You are trying to navigate through life as a young teenager. Dancing was the art form in which I found solace. I used it as an escape to somewhere I could become something.
And when I related with others in the social environment, I found out that people needed some escape. I started exploring that at the national stadium until I found the entertainment space.”
