Mehn!, a brother cannot really pinpoint where the dance came from, but the very major pioneer of the zanku leg work is no other than the ‘Kapaichumarimarichopaco’ {pronounced = Kapa-chu-mari-mari-chu-paco}  also known as Zlatan Ibile

He has gone as far as releasing a song named after the dance, and until someone comes out to say otherwise, Zlatan Ibile is the owner of Zanku Leg Work.

What Does Zanku Mean? 

Zlatan Ibilie in an interview with Punch said “He once released a dance that a prominent artist stole” to that effect, when he came up with the Leg Work dance, he decided to name it Zanku.

Zanku is an abbreviation for “Zlatan Abeg No Kill Us“. His aim for doing this was, if someone were to steal the dance, he/she will be indirectly promoting him.

Learn How To Dance Zanku The Basic Way

Step 1.

You get a piece of super cool music that will go with the dance, I recommend you get ‘Zanku Legwork‘ by Zlatan Ibile himself  or Able God by Chinko Ekun ft Lil Kesh and Zlatan Ibile even Jogor by Zlatan Ibile

Step 2.

You bend your neck like you are looking at the floor.

Step 3. 

You fold your elbow like you want to give someone an uppercut without really giving it.

Step 4.

You lift your right/left leg up a little like you want to kill an ant {You don’t necessarily have to lift your legs very high}

Step 5.

When your right leg{Depends on the one you started with} is about touching the floor, you lift the second one

Step 6.

You now continue in this manner.

And you are now hitting your leg on the floor like a MAD PERSON sorry Zanku Master.

Now, You have gotten the basics, go ahead and add your own style, most especially that one you lift your leg up like you want to smash open a door.
