Video of Benue traditional dance goes viral on TikTok

Her friends on the other hand dressed in the Idoma and Igede traditional attires, completing the three main tribes in Benue state.

The lady performed the Tiv dance, twisting her body like a snake. In local parlance, her dance would be called ‘ama a tiligh’ because of how vigorous it was.

Her interesting moves bore the marks of ‘Swange’, which is an interesting dance pattern in Benue state.

A lot of people who have seen the dance performed by the three ladies took to the comment section to praise them and to ask for more of such videos.

Others who saw the traditional dance video expressed happiness, saying they are also from Benue.
