TikTok Sensation Uncle Raymond Stopped Mid-Dance By ITE College West Security, He Calmly Complies

ITE College West Security Guard Stops Uncle Raymond Mid-Dance

If you’re active on TikTok, you probably know Uncle Raymond for his adorable dances and wholesome behaviour.

Even though he is well-loved for his iconic Manyao choreography, there is a time and place for everything.

On Monday (13 Jun), TikTok page @sgvirallll posted video of Uncle Raymond filming a video at the ITE College West campus.

As he and three other students were dancing, a security officer suddenly showed up to stop them.

In response, Uncle Raymond politely complied and packed up his tripod.

However, halfway through their dance, a security officer and a lady approached them and motioned for them to stop.

In the background, disgruntled students let out loud boos as they protested the security guard’s actions.


One of the students who was dancing even raised both his arms and made thumbs-down gestures.

Nevertheless, Uncle Raymond calmly complied and immediately picked up his tripod and put it away.

Both parties deserve our understanding

It is understandable that the ITE students were looking forward to seeing Uncle Raymond and his iconic dance.

However, the security guard was likely just doing his job to maintain order in accordance with the school rules.

Nevertheless, we admire Uncle Raymond for calmly and politely complying with the instructions even if it disrupted his dance. Hopefully, his next filming session goes a lot more smoothly.
