Lizo She took her TED talk to another level and shared with the audience how the dance of twerking helped her appreciate her hips even more!
According to the “Tempo” singer, her back was the least favorite part of her body because she said when she grew up there was no big daredevil fascination on earth, People Report
“I hated my ass, believe it or not,” he said in his opening remarks. “I have Dad’s shape and Mom’s thighs, so it’s big and long. I thought only a donkey like J.Lo or Beyonc পারে could be famous. I never thought that could happen to me.”
Added, “I always felt that my body type was not right, or that I didn’t want to grow up. Because I grew up in an age where big ass was not mainstream.”
But now, his love for his lady lumps is fully displayed, and he thanks his colleagues and his fans for the approval stamp.

“My ass has been the subject of conversation, my ass is in the magazine, Rihanna respects my ass permanently. Yes, my booty! The least favorite part of my body,” she says. “How did it happen? Twerking. Through the Twerking movement, I realized that my ass is my greatest asset. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my TED Twerk.”
Ever since Lizo was first introduced to Twitter at a teen club in Houston, she has been deeply immersed in the history of dance because it relates to black culture.

“The twerking of the modern era derived from black people and black culture. It’s in direct parallel with West African dances like Mapoka,” he explains. “Blacks carry the origins of this dance through our DNA, through our blood, through our bones. We have turned global cultural events into today.
Lizo notes that her TED talk is based on the origins of today’s popular dance, “refraining from removing blackness.”
“For me, twerking is not a trend. My body is not a trend,” he says. “That’s me because of my ancestors, for sex, my bitch, O girls. Something real to me.”
