    the content of this video is nice. It describes the community as a rural community and semi urban.. This video shows that this community has a lot of hidden talents. This dance clip might look funny but it’s actually something good for a rural community newspaper in the sense that it showcases children with raw talents and need to be shown to the public.
    The dance is funny but shows alot of talent.
    This children are just exhibiting their God given talents not a joke

    The content of this video is actually funny as it depicts children dressed in a shaggy lifestyle dancing happily to the tune of the music being played..
    The environment is for sure a rural community which adopted a little urban way of living..
    The children dancing, shows the acceptance of new change and development which they’ve learnt/ experienced..
    Such practice , shows unity and boost change as it unifies different communities as one to achieve same objective .

    It’s a music video.
    Some of the kids are from rural community while others are semi urban. The video depict the backwardness and undeveloped status of those communities as seen in their steps and type of music. They are not kidding,they are really exhibiting rural, “raw” talent. I also agree with the” funny African kid……” tag. The dances are traditional and appeal to rural community newspaper because it’s a reflection of their life style

    No
    This is atypical rural community,the picture here gave a full image of life in rural aera
    Those children were not just funny they exihited true social solidarity, socialisation and above all feels welcomed and happy with the fun they found themselves in.

  7. The type of contents used here is locality. The community here is a rural community, they live in an underdeveloped area whereas the surroundings depict that. The dance clips shows how the children are dancing their local dance, they are able to know about their environment and the people living in it. I don’t agree. They are exhibiting raw talents as they should show off their dance steps depending on their community. Muoneke Judith team Mobutu seseko quiz no 16

    Obviously most of them are from rural community,very humble but happy background because they seem to be enjoying their dance.
    For having time to practice such dance moves, it seems they are getting little or no education into their communities.
    The dance step from the first video is terrific and that of the second video, those group of girls killed it, the third video showing that little girl with those moves, is so lovely, the boy on school uniform was something else.
    The videos prove that children leaving in rural communities happen to be quite talented and always find different ways to feel happy and really good about themselves despite the situation surrounding them.
    All the videos are quite funny especially the third one with good talents for dancing.

    It is a rural community that is full of children that are contented and happy with everything they have. Thou their dancing steps are funny but they are passing a message across to people about their cultural dance and attire..
    After watching this video, I realise that it is applicable to rural community newspaper because if you don’t get to know about a community you cant write or report about them

  10. Their dance moves really say alot about them, judgeing from their steps you can conclude that they are not yet exposed….The sound is made from a drum and stick and mostly they use their mouth to sing unlike in rural community where you have hip hop R and B and you play music from ur sound system.. one can easily say its a rural community judgeing from the detached houses made of mud and also most of the children in the dance video are not well danced and are covered in african attire with beads and hair roffol. They know nothing about that they are excited of their dance moves because it contains mostly african beats…The childern dancing to the beat are not well danced yet they enjoy it and seen ro be engroosed at it..one can say that their dance is what keeps them together because its a collective dance that is been performed by 4 or 5 kids…Unlike in rural community you hear musics like Wo or robo seske sang by tiwa savage they know no celebrity they only depend on their drum and stick and if you pay a close attention you would notice that their is no voice recording only sound and they seem to enjoy and value it…Agbasimelo sharon Team kigali 2015054099

    The content exhibit children in the rural area showcasing their dance step and feeling excited about it. The community is a rural community. It shows how the kids are excited about the dance. They are exhibiting talent from the look of Things, one can see the excitement shown on their faces.

  12. This is a dance content,the feature that describes the rural community where these kids emerged from is their ability to embrace and appreciate their culture.
    The dance steps portrayed in the video simply denotes that DANCE is one of those things that some communities cannot do without and some dancing steps in trend now are being taken from these urban communities,modernised and changed to join the trend.
    In my own understanding these African kids are showcasing their raw talents therefore it also shows that all the dancing steps in trend originated from small rural commuinties.

    3: its appeal to rural community audience casues most of the video show children from rural commuinty who are showcasing their talents and at the same time having fun.
    its amazing how as young as some of them are they can dance this way and even dance some of their cultural dance.

    This video contain children who are dancing and having fun with themselves in their various community.
    These children emerged from both rural, urban and semi-urban community.
    This video shows the children who are growing from different communities like rural, urban and semi-urban which the environment /backgrounds also depicts.
    Yes I agree with him/her but it could also be described as ‘Happy African Kids Dance’ and am sure that this will be appealing to rural community audience because they will like to also see the dance step of people from other communities.
    The kids are not kidding, however , they are equally having fun as well as displaying their talent in their various communities (rural, urban and semi-urban ).

    This content contain kids from rural community. the video clip tells us that this kids from this community has something in common (social) in the sense that they share common goals situated in a given geographical area.
    moreover we can also see that this children in this video clip displayed different kind of dance like traditional dance, Indian dance,and also all this modern dance that came out newly like shaku shaku,skelewu and so on.and this kids really tired in trying to convey different types of dancing steps to the community audience
    Indeed this video is funny and how these rural kids displayed their raw talent is really amazing. I think they should be rewarded for this.

    This video displays high humorous content, as it contains children dancing happily.
    The environment is no doubt a rural community as their dressings where shabbily done..
    The children dancing, shows Unity and acceptance as it brought out a zeal to adopting a new change and exhibiting ones talent…
    This practice is nice as it adopts a little bit of Urban lifestyle in a bid to uniting different communities to a common goal

  20. The kids emerged from a rural community the video clip portrayed the kids community as a rural one, and showed that the kids are happy dancing to the beat of the music with their fellow Kids cheering them up
    Numerous dance steps abound in the video clip ranging from calisthenics to dance drama etc ,the dance appeals to the newspaper because it seeks to entertain the viewers and glue them to their gadgets and also causing traffic on the newspaper sites
    I think the kids are actually communicating using the dance moves, it shows how intelligent they are and how great they could be in future, starting at a tender age to involve in such activities, it is not just funny as the poster called it but entertaining and this goes a long way to promote the African Heritage and shows we are heading somewhere

    1.) The content is Entertainment through dancing.
    Most of the kids diplayed here emerge from rural communities, while few of them such as those secondary school students are from Urban community.
    2.) The video clip portrays such communities as bad influence on their wards as a result of the immoral dance steps showcased in the clip.
    3.) The children danced “shaku-shaku” style which was recently invented by a popular Nigerian artiste Olamide. They equally danced “awilo” style. They also “twerked” and equally danced Timaya’s favourite style called “Whining your shoulder alongside your leg, with your hand on your hip”. They also displayed “one corner” dancing step, though not fully. They equally displayed “acrobatics” and some of their cultural dance steps.
    4.) The content portrayed here depicts entertainment;in essence, with the children seen in the picture dancing, it will make the newspaper catchy as the audience would like to know what and how these little children display their talent through dancing.
    5.) Yes, I strongly agree with the poster that this video can be tagged “Funny African Kids Dancing”
    6.) Yes, they are truly exhibiting rural raw talent, but in a wrong way. My reasons are; they are too young to be displaying such dance steps as it may affect their mentality as they grow up. To emphasize, it means they may think this is actually the right way to showcase their talent but it’s all wrong as most of them may end up becoming strippers in club houses which worsens the situation of the society because they are seen as leaders of tomorrow.

    1) The content of the video depicts children living in a rural areas dancing and having fun not minding their environment but still finds a way to come together and have fun just like that of the olden days.
    2) Its a rural area
    3) The video tells the world that there is still life of fun and happiness in rural areas and also good for the rural community newspaper. The children could adapt to the life they are born into and still finds a way to be happy
    4) I strongly disagree with the initial posted of the video with his understanding of the this content, but to agree that this is a talent exhibition which they might be doing once in a leisure time or moment which keeps the children and people around happy and can take the place of a television entertainment channel but real world reality entertainment, which they wouldn’t want to miss doing.

  29. (1)The content is informative (2) rural community (3)it gives the picture of how rural community is and how backward they are when it comes to developmemt (4)The dance is very funny and interested (5) it show raw talent these children have, its not copied from any where because they dance the steps the way it comes to their head.

    The community is definitely Rural which is seen in it’s contents which potrays high level of locality,poverty,illiteracy and others.
    The video clip explains a lot about this children and the community they live in,it displays the talents of this children and how hidden it has been going from the type of places they live.It shows the fun which this children know, how they enjoy life dancing naked to an awkward song with bare foots as compared to children in urban settlements who see fun from a different angle like going to Amuzement parks,watching of video games,Vacations and all of that.
    The entire dance clip is funny but very nice,Hidden Talents are showcased by children in these areas.they are really having fun and this is absolutely what the rural newspapers focus on,A community and their lifestyle.
    From the video,The kids are having Fun as can been seen from the smiles in their faces and the crowd cheers too,at the same time exposing raw talent which are hidden or neglected. most of them are very good dancers and have great potentials in them.
