Before departing, the R&B star took to the streets of Lagos, where she danced it up to some of the region’s top AfroBeats tunes.

Speaking on the experience, Super Ci shared with her 10 million Instagram followers…

Baby. #Duro.. A video posted by Ciara (@ciara) on

Come through Ci!

Love this! Would be awesome if she injected a measure of AfroBeats into her upcoming album. Not many of the Western acts are doing so, hence it could be an original angle.

Even if not, we’ll continue to hit “play” on this.

    Absolutely breathtaking! I’m here for her giving early promo teas and perfecting her craft at dancing. She can literally do no wrong in my eyes. I love my Super CI Go Girl! Can’t wait for her to win again with this new album.

  6. cocobutta March 2, 2016

    This girl can move a storm.

    Wish her talent was pushed to the fullest. She supposed to be up there with the top top success people in music.

    With her level of dancing id pay to see her at the Greenwich 02 in London.

    Needs a album can have her consistently up there.

    • cocobutta March 2, 2016

      Bit off subject but so excited to be going to see Janet, Brandy then Beyoncé (in that order) end of March, end of June and early July. What a year in London 2016 wooooooo ?

    • HailBeysus March 2, 2016

      Kiii the irony when Ci is more irrelevant than Monica ??! When was her last post again????

      • HailBeysus March 2, 2016

        SCREAMING AT MY PHONE CHANGING CIARAS NAME TO FRIHANNA AND RELEVANT TO IRRELEVANT ??????????! I THOUGHT I CORRECTED BOTH. MY PHONE KNOWS I HATE FRIH KII!! Anyway that irrelevant should be a relevant. So when was Monica’s last post????

      • Anonymous March 2, 2016

        “The irony when Ci is more irrelevant than Monica”


        Sometimes it’s best to avoid such by not commenting at all

      • Monica Stan March 2, 2016

        Yet Mo sells more 20 years into her career. You were right the first time. Ciara is irrelevant KIIIIII

  13. shakira stan March 2, 2016

    She is a desperate flop.

    • Career Ender March 2, 2016

      like rihflop was desperate for that platinum plaque that she got fraudulently?
      or how she scrapped a whole album like 2X just so she can get a cheap forgettable basic trash #1 single?
      or how she covered a free magazine to build hype after her 3 singles flopped?
      or after she pushed her release date further than Stevie wonder’s hairline onlybto debut with 15k (which 460 was pure sales?)
      or how she always cling to a hot rapper to het into the top 5 of hot100?
      or how her stadium statusness has been reduced to high school cafeteria (giving mama jigsaw a run for her money)
      or how she’s #2 on BB200 with less than 30k sold amd like 50k streams?
      or how Anti’s sales are 88% streams and the rest pure sales?
      or how she’s currently a non factor even tho her single is currently at #1?

      • HailBeysus March 2, 2016

        DEATH!!!! Not The Legendary Career Ender coming through with the read of the century ???????????????

      • Career Ender March 2, 2016

        Lol this curry goat always doing the most meanwhile Rihanna’s career is on life support

      • HailBeysus March 2, 2016

        Lmfaooooo it leaves like 9574736732 post before anyone even responds to it ?! I can’t with fRih selling less than 500k after a month. The Navy really thought Anti was gunna out sell Beys 3 day sales ????

      • RASHAD March 2, 2016

        No response lol

  14. Royalkev March 2, 2016

    When Cici moves, we’re all watching! She’s a beast!

  15. Anonymous March 2, 2016

    So now she’s dancing in the dirty streets? is it that hard to book a stage?

    • Cinnamon Girl March 2, 2016

      Ciara is in Paris now at Fashion Week. I like how classy Ciara and Beyonce are. They both seem so happy and content with their lives

      • Anonymous March 2, 2016

        Death at you hiding behind Beyoncé just to drag others including Rihslùt because your fave is a flop with no valid recipets you’re giving me???? y me Molly 2.0 tease but I guess the hive need a new lapdog to replace Molly and Jackie

  16. Cinnamon Girl March 2, 2016

    @Anonoymous, Ci is more irrelevant than Monica? If she’s so irrelevant why are you here wasting your energy on her?

  17. Career Ender March 2, 2016

    Lagos look dull

  18. Career Ender March 2, 2016

    Lagos looks very dull

  19. Casey March 2, 2016

    Damn, our R&B girls are left singing in Subways, and now streets? Damn!

    • Monica Stan March 2, 2016

      Brandy, another artist that sells more than Ciflopra

      • Career Ender March 2, 2016

        Monotone-nica’s last album lasted 4 weeks anywhere in public and has been Dead since. Did she even sell 300k? . did any of her songs chat? . did she grace any stage?

        bye basic!

      • Monica Stan March 2, 2016

        Code Red sold more than Jackie and that’s a Fact! You are clinging to Ciara because of your disdain for Rihanna.

      • HailBeysus March 2, 2016

        Gurrrl bye Jackie charted in The UK, Australia, Belgian, and Scotland. Meanwhile Code Red is nowhere to be found on any chart except US KIII!!! Again when was Monica’s last post?

      • Cinnamon Girl March 2, 2016

        I was at a music festival a few months ago. Monica performed and no one clapped for her.She tried to rally the crowd but folks were
        not feeling her. I felt bad for her

      • Career Ender March 2, 2016

        I did not compare Dead Code to Ciara’s Jackie nor did I mention Ciara or Rihanna or Beyonce in my comment
        section 8 hoodrat, I said DID BASIC RED SELL 300 FVXCKING K????
        DID IT YOU GHETTO B****????????

    • Badghal_intent March 2, 2016

      I don’t remember seeing Ciara singing… Maybe this month’s goal should be an Ophthalmology visit?

  20. Rihanna’s humble pie March 2, 2016

    Code dead! Kiiii

  21. Monica Stan March 2, 2016


  22. SWISH March 2, 2016

  23. Music all the way March 2, 2016

    One month after it’s
    release and Rihanna’s
    ‘ANTi’ still hasn’t matched
    HALF of what ‘BEYONCÉ’
    sold in 3 days…

    • What now March 2, 2016

      Bringing up Rihanna in a Ciara post? You’re so desperado!

      • Music all the way March 2, 2016

        I justed wanted to expose this amount of flopping sis,sorry for hurting your feelings like that!!
        Do you want me to also reveal her tour recepts???? Just say the word hun!

      • Music all the way March 2, 2016


  24. Casey March 2, 2016

    I’ll say this though, Ciara can dance her ass off. She’s no Janet, but still.

  25. Taylor Tori Azalea March 2, 2016

    The slums of Lagos have been slayed. Elusive Lamb aka What Now has be Cilayed

  26. Bonquita March 2, 2016

    Once again a completely unrelated post has turned into a Rihanna discussion. That just goes to show how f****** irrelevant C-Error truly is. Stay pressed maggots.

  27. .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. March 2, 2016

    I’m sure the Nigerian media and Nigerians on social media are clowning her. Don’t get me wrong, the boy can dance, but she is way past her expiry date. The lengths TGJ will go to make Ciara look appealing. ?

  28. j.earthtone March 2, 2016


  29. JMar March 2, 2016
