A dramatic video posted online by Adomonline.com shows scores of sex workers taking turns to twerk on the corpse of their dead colleague at her funeral.

Instead of the usual wailing and mourning that characterises most burial ceremonies, the prostitutes decided to send off their departed colleague by dancing provocatively as if it was a birthday party, shaking their backsides on the coffin.

Interestingly, they attracted a lot of applause from the onlookers who admired the act.

Where and when the funeral took place is not known yet but some narrators in the background are heard saying the video was shot at a prostitute's funeral.
