Gospel artiste Justina Syokau has defended herself over her dancing style which her fans have described as secular.

Speaking during a televised interview on Friday, January 8, Syokau who came to the limelight following the release of her song 2020, said she does not twerk when dancing in praise of the Lord.

"I do not twerk. When twerking, people do it with a hype," Syokau told the show's host.

"When twerking, most people do it while putting on a dera, and then it is loose, but mine is tight, even if I shake, it does not move," Syokau added as she bent over, shaking her hips sideways.

The 'Twendi Twendi' hitmaker further stated that her hips and body belongs to Jesus Christ adding that even if she wanted to twerk, Christ would not allow her.

"People say that I twerk...," she said while bending over and shaking her hips, "but you see, my thing (touches her behind) God ameiumba intact," Syokau said.

She further defended herself, saying her dancing style which appears like twerking is basically how members of the Akamba community dance.

"You see Amina, every tribe in Kenya has their own dancing style. You will see Luhyas with their mabegas, Maasai's with their whatever and us Kambas (swings her legs as she slightly leans forward while her back is arched) we just dance like this and it is not twerking," Syokau said.
