Anayo Modestus Onyekwere, a Nigerian actor, lawyer, movie producer and entrepreneur who is commonly known as Kanayo O Kanayo, has organised a ceremony to show respect to his late parents.
The 59 years old Nollywood actor did what he referred to as Eshe dance while his only sister did the Uko dance today to honour their parents, Donatus Ogu and Ezinne Isabella Onyekwere, who died many years ago.
Kanayo O Kanayo made the news public in a post on his official Instagram page a couple of minutes ago. He also shared a short video clip of the event on his social media page.
The well-known Nigerian actor printed the below banner possibly to create awareness about the ceremony:
The caption that came with the video clip reads, “Today in Oboama Ezinihitte Mbaise, I danced the ESHE while my Sisters danced the UKO in memory of our late parents, Mr &Mrs Donatus & Isabella Onyekwere”.
In the short video clip, Kanayo O Kanayo was seen dancing with a knife in the company of his sister and other unknown individuals.
Available information shows that Eshe and Uko are traditional Igbo dances organised to honour our aged loved ones who are dead.
