Celestina Aladekoba – A Dancer Divine
She has appeared in feature films Norbit, Alvin and the Chipmunks, That’s So Raven, The Game, Smith, American Dreams, to name a few; National Commercial Campaigns for Ipod, Crystal Light, Ford, and so on.
She has worked with Prince, Brian McKnight, Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Chris Brown, Brandy, Will Smith, Outcast, Nick Cannon and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few. Celestina’s dynamic style has ‘wowed’ many.
In 2004, 50 Cent officially named her “Matrix” because of her remarkable back-bending dance move, which has been and is currently seen to be mimicked in a number of dance videos and performances.
She grew up in Nigeria from the age of 8 to 12 and then came back to the U.S. to complete high school, graduating at the age of 16. Interestingly, if her parents had had their own way, she would have been a lawyer, (she did get a BS degree in Music Business and a minor in Philosophy from University of Southern California) but she followed her heart and is dancing the mess out of everyone on music videos. Her style has been copied by many and she is blazing trails with new moves everyday!
