Johannesburg - This week, we feature musician, internationally recognised choreographer, media personality, DJ and influencer Courtnaé Paul.

She is best known for being the first B-Girl winner of the Breaking For Gold SA Championship.

As a result of being crowned winner, she will receive her South African Colours for Breaking and will represent the country in France in December. This is the first stop on the road to the 2024 Olympics.

The 2021 Red Bull BC One South African B-Girl champ will also be the first African B-Girl to represent the continent at the world final in Poland this November.

She is also a musician and recently dropped her latest single Ooh Wee.

The Durban-born beauty has also announced her stint as a mentor and choreographer on the new series Dance Africa Dance and is one of the ambassadors for the launch of the Volkswagen Golf 8 GTi.

You are able to have a dance-off with any SA celeb. Who do you choose to go up against?

Linda Mtoba. We’ve been close friends for years and I don’t think she’s shown the country her amazing dance skills. Haha.

Your favourite song to dance to?

Either my latest single Oh Wee ft. Da Les, Money Badoo and Phantom Steeze, or Tesher’s Jalebi Baby. Can’t keep still when they’re on.

Your favourite dance move?

It’s impossible for me to choose. Dance is my language, so it’s like asking me for my favourite word. Haha. I love them!

What are the three most popular items in your fridge?

Blueberries, fresh orange juice and Red Bull.

You are able to DJ at any club in the world. Which club do you choose?

Drai’s in Las Vegas. I believe it’s not a matter of if, but when.

You are invited to DJ at a party for President Cyril Ramaphosa. What's the first track you play?

Our national anthem: Sista Bettina.

What is the one thing most people don't know about you?

That I’m training towards the 2024 Olympics for Breaking.

Tell us about the worst date you've been on

I’ve had entire relationships that were bad. Does that count?

You can do one exercise for the rest of your life. What exercise do you choose to do?

Dance! Yes, it’s a cheat but I couldn’t resist.

You're on death row. You are able to have one last meal and drink of your choice. What do you choose?

Fresh watermelon juice from Thailand, and my girlfriend’s chicken curry and rice. You can take the girl out of Durban, but you can’t take Durban out of the girl.
