'I have made friends with a good few Africans on nights out and loved their music and style of dance since'.
'I was in South Africa in sept on holiday and was blown away by all the music and dance we were surrounded by there'.
'The reception has been great, all really positive. My facebook has totally blown up with comments, friend requests and Facebook messages. I'm just glad that the African community here know that there are lots of Irish people here that appreciate their culture and all the music, dance etc that they have brought to us', he added.
