- Bontle Modiselle has recently said that dancers in Mzansi do not get the respect they deserve for their craft
- The new mom shared that people expect dancers to just stay behind the scenes in everyone else's shadow
- Bontle has continued to show her haters that she's an impeccable dancer by continuously sharing videos of herself getting down
Professional dancer and media personality Bontle Modiselle is tired of the disrespect her craft receives. The new mommy has made a name for herself when it comes to dancing and has made herself well known for her luscious moves.
In a Twitter rant, the dancer shared how disappointed she was at how people were disrespecting her craft.
"Dancers don’t get the credit they deserve. You’re meant to stay in everyone else’s shadow. Stay small. Be JUST a dancer. But damn, I’m so proud of the dance community! Some of your fav entertainers today come from dance, have transitioned & become household names respectively," she said.
Bontle has been subjected to trolls for her dancing whenever she posts videos of herself working it on social media. Back in June, the dancer shared a video of herself rocking to Focalistic's Ke Star and trolls said that she was trying too hard to dance like Kamo Mphela.
She even turned off her comments on Instagram. But she has recently turned them back on.
"Very rarely do you find a dancer that is one dimensional, but folks aren’t comfortable with them being more than what they know you as, so any dancer that gets out of the “you’re just a dancer” limitation and becomes more than that, deserves their flowers,” she followed up with a subsequent tweet.
Bontle has since continued to show her haters that she's a great dancer and nothing will stop her. Shine mama!
