Comfort foods

Homemade ribs and fries, an absolute favourite of mine. It brings me so much happiness!

Staying active

Definitely dance classes – I am hosting these live on Instagram for kids every morning at 11:30am.

Time for a new skill

I’d learn how to do makeup properly and how to bake – these are just two of many things that will be part of my ‘Home Festival’ which is happening on YouTube and Instagram this weekend alongside some good friends of mine.

Oti Mabuse is hosting free dance classes for adults and children online
