Twerking is one crazy dancing style a lot of people are not really comfortable with. Interestingly, the likes of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, Amber Rose, Miley Cyrus, and Shakira have all secured a spot for themselves on the list of celebrities who can twerk. Mizz Twerksum may not be as popular as these icons mentioned above but she has made an empire out of the sexy dance move ever since it captured the attention of the world and mainstream media.
Mizz Twerksum is popularly known as The Queen of Twerk. She started hitting the dance floor with her friend/partner Lady Luscious since late 2007 and ever since then, they have not slowed down.

The twerking star launched her career with about six or seven other dancers in the year 2005. They started out by making YouTube videos and dancing at house parties. The Atlanta-based group eventually had their career breakthrough after their hit video of “She Got A Donk” by acclaimed rapper/music producer/entrepreneur Soulja Boy went viral within the first week it was released.
Following the success of the video, which actually featured four dancers, the twerk team began to bag gigs and feature in the videos of notable artists. Ever since the team burst into mainstream success, everything about their life and career has changed for good.
