Popular Nigerian kid dances, ‘The Dream Catchers’ from Ikorodu are already going global. After being celebrated by popular American and British celebrities, they are now being featured on a mini-documentary on BBC.

Recall that, Rihanna shared their dance video in admiration of the young talents as she celebrated a new milestone in her career, being the first female artist to cross 2 billion worldwide streams on Apple Music.

The Dream Catchers have gone further to catch the attention of top American entertainers like Diddy and Rihanna while supermodel Naomi Campbell has also featured them on her Instagram page.

The latest progress the dance crew has recorded is a feature on a mini-documentary by the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dream Catchers, which is made up of 10 children — seven girls and three boys have been dancing together since November 2014.

According to their social media bio, they are street kids from Ikorodu. “Dance puts us in school and off the streets,” it says.

The kids and their 26-year-old instructor, Seyi Oluyole, were recently nominated for the Best Creative Social Enterprise Award via African Creative Exhibition and Awards.

In one of the group’s Instagram posts, the caption reads:

“This time last week, we didn’t have lunch, but here we are this week getting so much love with 12,000 followers!” (That number has since climbed to 42,000.) “Our hope has been renewed.”

A post on the Dream Catchers Instagram page shows the gratitude the kids have for Oluyole, the force behind the group:

“You see all our smiles and dance videos, there is someone behind it all. There is a special person who took us off the street and takes care of us. She feeds us, sends us to school, buys us clothes and takes care of us even when we are sick. She is Aunty Seyi.”
