What is the KiKi Challenge and how did it start?
The KiKi Challenge became viral after internet comedian Shiggy posted a video of himself on social media, dancing to the song “In My Feelings” by Canadian singer Drake. However, he wasn’t dancing outside a moving car in his video. But somehow the challenge became what it is now!

Well, in order to participate in the challenge, the participant has to move out a slow-moving car and dance to the tunes of Hollywood singer Drake’s song In My Feelings recreating the signature moves in the song. Another person has to record the video and then it is shared on the social media platform with hashtags #KiKiChallenge and #InMyFeelings.
Even Hollywood star Will Smith took up the challenge and took it to the next level!
