Senator Ademola Adeleke, representing Osun West in the Senate, has said dancing is part of him.
Adeleke said dancing comes naturally to him.
The Senator, whose dancing video went viral and gained him more popularity, spoke in an interview in Abuja on Thursday.
The interview was published on the official Twitter handle of the Nigerian Senate: @NGRSenate, by Bamikole Omishore, a Director of the National Assembly Television and Special Adviser on New Media to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar BukolaSaraki.
Adeleke, who is in the Senate to fill the vacuum left by his late brother, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, said he started dancing while he was in the All Progressives Congress to make campaigns lively.
He said when he moved to the Peoples Democratic Party, he also continued with his dance steps to make campaigns very lively.
Adeleke said: “If you go to most campaigns, it is so dry; but when you put in an interlude where you dance, it becomes interesting and you dance and laugh.
“As a matter of fact, I became the face of the campaign; without me, there was no campaign.
“So, now that they messed up and I moved to my former party, the PDP, and they are now using it against me that I am dancing.
“I even danced with my daughter and they never knew it was my daughter and they were using it against me.
“But I said: ‘Hey, she is my daughter, you have to be close to your children.’
“I dance to enjoy myself.
However, Adeleke stressed that he will not only be remembered in the Senate for his dance steps, as he had already set machinery in motion to deliver democracy dividend to his constituency.
He said since his admission into the Senate, he has been understudying the legislature and would soon come up with a bill that will impact his people positively.
He added that although only two years are left in the eighth Senate, he would make an impact within the time frame.
Adeleke said: “For the past one week, I have been understudying what is going on in the Senate and I love it.
“I intend to pass a lot of bills that will benefit my people in Osun West.
“They have done well by supporting me.
“This election was an election that got a lot of attention and they supported me.
“The dance I did was a victory dance.”
