Calling her new manager a “blessing”, she continued: “I just be doing these stupid little dances like everywhere, every day. I didn’t know I was getting caught or recorded or anything.

“I am so happy and thankful for that opportunity she gave me.

“She called me this morning like ‘I caught your dance yesterday’ and she was like ‘oh my gosh you’re going viral, you went on TikTok and you were 20 million views’. I was like ‘what? Nah, you’re lying’.”

After reenacting the dance in the video that now has almost 63,000 views, she explained that she starts her new job the following day.

“It is lit, it is L-I-T” she said. “Good vibes only over here - no negativity!”
