These Clips of Burna Boy and Diddy Dancing Together on IG Live Will Brighten Your Mood

The artists chatted about life in Nigeria under lockdown and danced to "Odogwu" and "Killin Dem" during Diddy's fundraising dance-a-thon on Sunday.

Quarantine has led to several celebrities hosting virtual gatherings, mostly through IG Live. Yesterday, music mogul, Sean "Diddy" Combs hosted an at-home dance-a-thon via the platform to raise money for coronavirus relief and was joined by a number of his famous friends including Burna Boy.

The two discussed life in Nigeria under lockdown, before engaging in a playful dance off to Burna Boy's songs "Odogwu" and "Killin' Dem." While the latter played, Burna Boy busted out his famous "gbese" and zanku legwork, while Diddy moved along to the best of his abilities (he was sporting a knee brace).

The exchange was fun and playful and led to a number of excited reactions from people on social media.
