The popular song by Patapaa is accompanied with a crazy dance that requires one to seduce himself in a corner and perform a sexually stimulating dance.

This move graduated from just a dance move on a track to a social media challenge, and then to a trend. Every social media platform has had a fair share of tons of video clips of people performing the one corner dance challenge.

While many have greatly embraced and welcomed the dance as one of the everyday social trends, some have found it rather disturbing that an unarguably immoral display is being promoted in Ghana.

Some of these individuals are people in the likes of Gospel singer Sonnie Badu, Media practitioner KKD, and others.

Patapaa -The ‘One Corner’ singer

According to him, the so-called hit ‘One Corner’ song by Patapaa is nothing but a total piece of ‘foolishness’ that must not be endorsed by well-meaning Ghanaians.

KKD lamented that there a lot of great achievements -educational, social and economic that could project a good image of Ghana as well as inspire others to do better.

These achievements he said have come and gone without being propagated or publicized; only for Ghanaians to jump onto the meaningless ‘One Corner’ dance.

He described the development as a social malady which will have unimaginable adverse effects on the youth.
