"Fuzunyoko in Zulu means 'Dancing round just like your Mother'.
It was at a certain gathering when the first group of men dancers did their thing. The then women followed one by one. At the end came Fuzunyoko, and from the crowed of men, all with one voice:
Awu - yebo ntomazana - waze wamfuza - unyoko."
