He also spoke about other dance moves he choreographed, including one he did for Nigerian singer, songwriter and Music Executive, Mr Eazi.
"Cos I have been able to have my dance done by Janet Jackson. A whole Janet Jackson. I came up with a dance step called 'Kupe.' The viral dance. It was my dance step that made the guy do the song.
I came up with this one called 'Pilolo.' Mr Eazi's song. It was my dance step that influenced him to do that music. This dance went viral. I started a dance challenge and it went viral. Everyone was doing it," said Zigi.
"And in her performance on Jimmy Fallon's show, I saw her doing the 'Kupe' and 'Pilolo' all at once. That was great for me. One midnight, I was in bed and had people mentioning me on my Instagram.
I went to check and a whole Janet Jackson is doing my dance. I couldn't sleep, trust me. Because looking up to someone like Michael Jackson and he is no more, and his sister is doing it, it's like me meeting Michael Jackson. It was great. It was really huge for me."
