American actor, Jamie Foxx, shared a video on social media showing him trying to do the popular South African dance, the 'Gwara Gwara'. His attempt was met with a mixed response - not everyone thought he nailed it.
The Gwara Gwara dance is a wildly-popular one, but that doesn't mean it's easy to pull off. Like the vosho, many of us just end up looking silly or stupid when trying to show off our dance skills.
Well-known American actor, Jamie Foxx, recently tried it and had his followers divided - some thought he was doing great, while others could only applaud his effort, not his execution.
Jamie said he only dances under certain conditions, such as when he watched the opening of his new film Coming To America 2, which also stars our own girl, Nomzamo Mbatha.
The dance, started in SA by DJ Bongz, involves moving your legs and almost looking like you've unhinged yourself. It's fun to try though!
Check out Jamie's attempt:
Briefly.co.za noticed that local celebs such as Cassper Nyovest and Lunga Shabalala also saw the video and left comments.
