If you were at BBK’s homecoming concert, you may have witnessed Naomi Campbell introduce a kids dance crew, DreamCatchers to perform as her special guests. Dream Catchers, also known as the Ikorodu kid dancers or Ikorodu Talented Kids, have been gaining steady recognition since stars like Naomi Campbell, Diddy and Rihanna shared videos of them performing on their social media pages.
The Dream Catchers are made up of 10 children who have been performing together since November 2014. The group was formed by the children’s caretaker and guardian Seyi Oluyole, who formed the group as a Social Enterprise to teach underprivileged street kids to dance and perform, using earnings to cater to their needs. Though the crew is fairly new, the recognition goes beyond celebrity encouragement, Seyi Oluyole and the crew were recently nominated for Best Creative Social Enterprise Award via African Creative Exhibition and Awards.
Naomi expressed her excitement to meet the crew before she came to Lagos for ARISE fashion week
And they were just as excited about her visit, putting on this pretty sweet show when she finally met them.
They also appreciated her introducing them at the Homecoming concert via instagram
