Why I did ‘Davido dance’ in Manchester Derby – Shaw

Manchester City Women forward Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has explained the backstory of her ‘Davido celebration’ with Chloe Kelly in the Manchester Derby last month.

In November, she joined Kelly in doing Nigerian music star, Davido’s ‘Unavailable’ dance after wrapping up the scoring for City in their 3-1 victory over United at Old Trafford in November.

Speaking during a recent interview with Sky Sports, the Jamaican striker explained how her viral ‘Davido celebration’ came to be.

Shaw said: “I went to the PFA Awards and Davido was there. Obviously, he performed. I’m touching Alex like, ‘I’m feeling this dance.’ She was like, ‘You got it.’ So throughout the time, she was like, ‘You got it.’

I was trying [the dance] but it wasn’t working, but she was like, ‘Okay, you need more practise.’ And so I would go in the bathroom and practise to see if I got it because I didn’t want to come out and be embarrassed.

Whenever there’s a new song or a new dance, Chloe is like the first person [in the team] to learn it. And I was like, ‘Chloe, how do I look? Check me out.’ And she was like, ‘Okay, you got it.’ She was like, ‘You know what? It would be cool if either one of us scored; we could do it at the game [Manchester Derby].’

And then I scored but I completely forgot because I was just so in the moment. And then I saw Chloe touch me and she just started doing it [‘Unavailable’ dance] and I joined her. I think it went viral and Davido reposted it.”
