The celebrated dancer was in Ghana for a show in the company of other South Africans. In a video now making the rounds on social media, Uncle Vinny could be seen throwing money at the crowd, which appeared unbothered about it.
Where some peeps had expected the crowd to rush the money, the crowd simply snubbed the money. This caused Uncle Vinny to trend for the wrong reasons. Some of his compatriots mocked him for his actions and the result.
However, some stood by him, praising his decision to share his earnings with people who turned for his show. You can check out some reactions below.

Ghana may not have been impressed by that magnanimous moment, and some South Africans may have used the opportunity to mock Uncle Vinny, but then they cannot take his dance gift from him, and he remains one of the most visible figures in South African entertainment.
by the way, 23 April 2022 will be Uncle Vinny Day, and there will be a celebration at the Johannesburg Stadium
