If you left a screening of Black Panther too hype to contain yourself, you might want to get in on a dance challenge that’s sending waves throughout social media.
The #BlackPantherChallenge — not to be confused with the #BlackPantherChallenge that’s fundraising for kids to see the movie — started gaining hype when actress Kendra “K.O” Oyesanya posted a dance routine on Instagram. The clip showed her and her crew jamming to the song “Omunye” by Distruction Boyz. In the clip, the dancers make use of African-inspired moves such as the Gwara Gwara from South Africa (a dance Rihanna even took on at the Grammys).
