Heaven is heaven. I sound retarded but it is true. Heaven is a four year old dancer who has been dancing since she was two years old. When I was two all I could do was refuse to eat porridge and fall off the sofa as I slept. She was first discovered when her mother Tianne uploaded a video of her dancing to Beyoncé’s End of Time and it went viral. She joined a dance class her mother was teaching and she followed the choreography. Ellen DeGeneres came about the video and was so impressed with her that she invited her to The Ellen Show. This invitation came about when she was three and had better footing in her dance steps.

She is a very adorable kid and if I had a kid like that I would open all kinds of social media to show the world the beauty that I begot. She has been on Ellen a couple of times and has gotten to even meet Beyoncé. I’ll give you time to calm down a bit before you continue. A back-stage pass was given to her and Beyoncé called her up on stage and hugged her and also whispered something. If I was hugged by Beyoncé that would be the end of me showering and those clothes would be framed and have a shrine around them, no kidding. “She said I am cute “, was the answer she gave when asked what Beyoncé told her.

Throughout her career, ahem she’s only four; she has gotten to become a dancer, a dance teacher, model, actress and a show host. Her TV show is called the Heaven show and as a dance teacher she teaches other young kids how to dance. I absolutely like the fact that she identifies herself as a dancer with a lot of confidence. In Kenya you ask someone what they do and they tell you ‘ni kuhustle tu’ (I am just hustling). Speak with confidence, I am a dancer, I am a writer, I am an actress. What’s wrong with that?

She was asked if she wanted to be a dancer when she grows up and she replied “I am a dancer”, and that was the end of that line of questioning. Her mother, Tianne King, has been a very integral part in creating the confident girl that she is. She shoots her videos, teaches her the latest dance moves and is her ride everywhere with no fail. She is getting endorsements left, right and center and she continues to grow with the support she gets.

Find her second performance on Ellen at the end of this post. Here is a video of her dancing to the Nae Nae.
