Mnisi-Samoyo, better known as Pineapple, is a Zimbabwean and has explained that she is aware dancing is not the conventional career path for an African woman.

Pineapple is however a dance fitness instructor and a choreographer who began her career in dancing with visits to shows simply to look at how artistes dance.

She notes that her dance styles often earned her derogatory titles from people and made it hard for people to either take her seriously or support her.

She further adds that Africans who can afford to quit their careers to pursue a profession in dancing are very likely living a life of luxury, but that is not her story.

BBC Africa News reports that Pineapple went ahead to say it hurts when parents sacrifice so much for their children only to hear a child say they wish to do something else.
