China-based Ghanaian, Tafadzwa Belinda Mutyoro, fondly called Queenbelz won the Best Dance Award at the Xiasha Lifestyle Awards in Hangzhou, China, last week, the 27th June, 2018.
The Dance Competition was organized by Nehanda Radio and Powered by WPeMatico. She won with the votes of her peers after being nominated.
Mutyoro, who is an International Law student at Zhejiang Gongshang University, had always had passion for dancing but it wasn’t until she moved to China that she began dancing professionally.
“I liked dancing since childhood performing at home and variety shows in high school. When I came to China someone saw me dancing at a party and was really impressed to the extent that he thought I could live off it,” she said. “The guy had connections in the Chinese entertainment industry and introduced me to the Changzhou Grand Theatre Company.”
Mutyoro founded the Afro-Entertainment in 2016 after she was introduced to Changzhou Grand Theatre Company who gave her a condition to form a dance crew before she could be hired. Apart from dancing, Mutyoro is known to volunteer her labour at local hospitals, convents and children’s homes back in Ghana.
The talented dancer has worked with renowned choreographer John Cole who is also her mentor and another popular dancer in China named Killah T. Though her career seems to have well taken off in China, Mutyoro wishes to expand her reach home and other corners of the world.
