DO THE 🦟👏🏿 #MOSQUITOCLAPCHALLENGE
When mosquitoes get in our faces, there is a swat or a clap we’ll do to get rid of them. International Afropop dancer and choreographer Ezinne Asinugo has turned this clap into an easy 4-step dance routine — the #MosquitoClapChallenge.
On World Mosquito Day, 20 August, we’re inviting people everywhere to let the world hear loud and clear that in this new Covid world, we mustn’t take our eyes off the prize... Zero Malaria!
Film yourself or with friends doing the 4-step clap, write a caption to include #MosquitoClapChallenge and @ZeroMalaria, and ideally tag a friend or two! Post on TikTok or share your video across your favourite social media. 🤳🏿
