More about Meka:
Meka Oku Is a Nigerian-born dancer from a musically inclined household. He became highly influenced by Michael Jackson’s unique and distinct way of movement which sparked his interest towards dance at an early age.
While keeping a strong core in his inherent style of dance commonly known as “Afro Dance”, Meka was able to learn AfroHouse, Hip-Hop and bits of Dancehall on his own which makes him a self-taught dancer.
Meka found love for choreography through his exceptional Afro Dance Styles, AfroHouse and Dancehall inspired style of movement and this has allowed him to choreograph for A-list Artists Including Psquare and Selebobo. Meka, always a student of the arts continues to share his art and cultural experiences with a smile for all who embrace it for the love of dance.
