Sensational Dancer, Kaffy has been honored with a doctorate degree in recognition as a ‘pioneer in the business of dance in Africa’.
Taking to Instagram to share the good news, the mother of two wrote;
“I’m humbled to be decorated this afternoon by Escae Benin University with Honorary Doctorate in recognition as a ‘pioneer in the business of dance in Africa’. This award is not just for me but for an institution. That institution is the dance industry.
I dedicate this award to every Dancer, Make-Up artiste, Barber, Cobler, Generator boy, painter, Tailor, plumber, graphics artiste, cameramen, journalist, and everyone that can dare to dream. #daretodream #powertobe #danceboss #dancerslivesmatter #DrKaffy
This moment right here brought tears to my eyes as I reflected and had my life do a major replay of all the struggles, pain, and negative perceptions I have had to overcome to see this day. As a child, I looked through the Guinness book of world records and 18 years later I broke a Guinness world record. As a teenager, I pictured my face on billboards and on tv and I saw it happen, I lived it… I watch Movies and motivational speeches done in the honorary gown of a doctorate honor and here I am honored with the least likely career choice.
I have heard so many doubts that through dance I can amount to nothing not to talk of being celebrated or honored on this level In fact on many levels. I am here surrounded by Academics honoring me not for a certificate but for the application of every ounce of knowledge I have acquired in life both in school and on the street.
