American superstar Ciara touched down in Lagos on Friday. She was in town to perform at Nigerian R&B singer Darey Art Alade’s third annual Love Like A Movie (#LLAM3) concert Saturday night.

As Bella Naija reports, Nigerian choreographer Kaffy joined Ciara on stage and showed her how some of Nigeria's hottest dance moves. NET Chief Correspondent, Adedayo Showemimo, says the 48-minute performance changed his life. "Ciara won hearts, wriggled, danced, enjoyed herself and the moment she called Nigerian dance queen, Kaffy on stage to teach her Nigerian dance steps was electrifying," he writes. "Ciara danced the famous ‘Etighi’ to Iyanya’s ‘Kukere’, danced to Olamide’s ‘Shakiti Bobo’ and Tekno’s ‘Duro’. These moments were priceless."
