Everyone around the world is in their houses all day long bored because of the COVID-19 lockdown that has been on in the USA and UK for weeks now. Few Nigerian States joined the world in curbing the spread as from the 30th of March Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State have been locked down.
There has been a lot of focus on social media as engaging in the online platforms now is one of the major ways people can stay busy and entertained during this period.
Lockdown means no movement and activities of any sort except the essential ones related to the well being of citizens.
For this reason, a lot of social media challenges here and there have been created with users challenging others tp jump on the bandwagon. Below are some challenges you might find interested to join!
1) Don't Rush Challenge
People use a song titled "don't rush" to make a transition video from looking regular in house clothes to looking glowed up in fancy dresses. Everyone and their mom's actively taking part in the challenge.

BMW Club of Nigeria gave everyone a shocker when they announced on April 1 that the price money and gift for the winner was an April Fools' joke haha.
It's really amazing that cars could be fussed together with a social media challenge. Am I the only one that would love to see more social clubs dedicated to cars spring up in Nigeria?
Like an official Benz Fan Boys Club, American Muscle car club of Nigeria, JDM club of Nigeria and many other more.
