The latest senator, Ademola Adeleke, and his dances have been making waves since he won the bye-election in Osun West senatorial district to replace his late elder, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
The senator who doubles as uncle to pop singer Davido, first caught the attention of both fans and foes while innocently jubilating his victory, not knowing his dancing steps is gradually buying him ticket to becoming a celebrity, an added honour to being a distinguished senator.
Subsequent video has been released where the Osun senator displayed his unusual hip hop dance, a dance style not familiar with people of his age.
His friend, politician and publisher of Ovation Dele Momodu has also made tribute to Adeleke, saying he has known him for years to be a passionate dancer and that now he is leveraging on the “prowess” to stardom.
While sharing Adeleke’s latest dance video, Mr. Momodu writes: “It is difficult to find someone that loves to dance like my dear friend DR ADEMOLA NURUDEEN ADELEKE… He has such a pure soul that harbours no ill-feeling towards anyone… As way back as my 40th birthday some 17 years ago SENATOR ADEMOLA NURUDEEN ADELEKE was already known as a passionate dancer by family and friends. His dancing prowess has now added color to his political rise and fame today… Enjoy this latest video…
Senator Adeleke’s son, Sina Ramba, has also said he has known his father as dancer for years.
Commenting on the victory dance, the singer said, “When the spirit of the Lord comes upon my heart, I will dance like David danced. Ashamed? I cannot be embarrassed with the way my father danced.
“Look, my father will not change for anything! He’s been dancing since the 80s or why do you think they call him Jackson?”
“Trust me at every family party, we dig it out but he ends up winning because he just never stops. Jackson! Baddest.
“But don’t be misled; he is a man of extreme wisdom who knows how to conduct himself at all times. There is time to celebrate and there is time to work.
“I’m sure he will definitely do a great job serving his country to the best of his ability.”
