A Saudi Arabian TV personality has been detained by the authorities for “dabbing” during a concert.
Dabbing is a very popular dance step in the world, and it is a simple dance move or playful gesture, in which a person drops their head into the bent crook of a slanted arm while raising the opposite arm in a parallel direction but out straight.
The actor and singer Abdallah Al Shaharani took part in a music concert in the city of Ta’if where he pulled off the dance move.
According to the video, Abdallah puts down his microphone in order to encourage the audience to clap along. He then rolls his arms and performs the ‘dab’, while the audience cheers him on. A lot of artists, celebrities, and even athletes in countries around the world dab while expressing themselves.
