As for the origins of twerking, there is no solid evidence for that claim mainly on the grounds of convergence. If you do find solid, peer-reviewed and academically accepted evidence on the origins of twerking then by all means send them to me.
Technically twerking is NOT an example of cultural appropriation (bad) rather it’s convergent evolution of cultures (perfectly normal). Using your logic, singing is appropriation of the culture of East Africans. A non-Hindi wearing a bindi and a white person with dreadlocks are true examples of cultural appropriation.
