He showed up at the Afro Nation festival in Portugal and performed Monalisa, leaving fans screaming with joy. It was indeed a top-class performance that people from various continents loved.
Despite commanding a commanding name for his dance moves, Mzansi fans quickly noticed how Chris Brown struggled with the moves. It looked clear that Chris is a good dancer, but the Amapiano moves are slightly different. The Amapiano moves require one to be so flawless and accessible; he seemed too serious as compared to the likes of DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small. Despite the struggle, he impressed Mzansi with his effort and the love he showed performing Monalisa.
