Talking about influencers. Two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that there's a new viral social media challenge that is taking Mzansi by storm. The #DMXchallenge is all about embracing and showing the beauty of African ladies and their hair. Rapper Moozlie has joined in on the fun.
Social media challenges are very popular with users and they can go from silly to funny and even dive into controversy. Mostly, they're just a way to goof around. South Africans aren't about to get left behind and have joined in on the latest viral challenge, the #DMXchallenge.
This one has a positive message and puts the limelight on the beauty and versatility of African women and their hair.
About three weeks ago, Briefly.co.za also reported that local muso, Loyiso Bala, is set to represent Mzansi when he attends a prestigious event hosted by Bill and Melinda Gates. Loyiso was invited to the pair's Goalkeepers event in New York as a world influencer.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Goalkeepers event takes place in New York later in September and our own Loyiso Bala will be flying SA's flag over there. The singer has been part of several outreach programmes and charities and was invited to the Goalkeepers event after being nominated, reports TimesLIVE.
The event is focused on looking at the whole world's state, holding governments accountable for the issues in countries and bringing people together to discuss the world's biggest problems.
