The past few days have been quite overwhelming for citizens of the United States of America (USA) as they are set to elect the 46th president of their country.
Vote counts have continued across different parts of the states after the presidential election was conducted on Tuesday, November 7.
However, while citizens of the country await the final results, many of them have insisted that every vote must be counted following some 'funny moves' by the incumbent president, Donald Trump.
In light of these, voters did not only cast their votes and return to their homes, many stayed back to witness vote counts and ensure that the outcome of the elections is not tampered with in the slightest way possible.
Recently, Briefly.co.za sighted an interesting video making the rounds on several social media platforms.
A large crowd of American citizens were seen waving placards, banners in the air as they demanded every vote to be counted.
Late afrobeats musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s Opposite People song could be heard serenading the atmosphere.
The voters were seen busting subtle dance moves as the song played.

Still in a related story about the US elections, Briefly.co.za reported that US President Donald Trump insists he will not back down or concede the election, regardless of Joe Biden reaching 270 electoral votes. According to reports by CNN Trump maintains that he is going to fight and he believes that there has been voter fraud when coming to the counting of the ballots.
A statement released by Trump's team said: "This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process."
In other news, Joe Biden overtook Trump in Georgia as the vote-counting continues.
