Written by on 14th Apr 2020

The race against the #35dayLockdownSA clock wouldn’t be the same without all these social media challenges keeping us company.

TikTok has pulled out all stops to keep you entertained during this period.

So switch your camera to selfie mode and try out some of these challenges

Songs that turned into trends:

1. #BoredInTheHouse

Tyga is a mood, hey? This challenge has Tokers sharing what they have been getting up to to curb the boredom during the lockdown.

3. #DontRushChallenge

The glow up! The perfect excuse for ladies to dust off their finest fits and turn their fleek on.

And guess what? The challenge has evolved… Varying from the Twin edition, Black women in Law, South African content creators and dapper gents who have hearts melting.

4. #ToosieSlide – Dance

Just like Mr. C The Slide Man had us hooked on the Cha-Cha Slide, Drake is taking quarantine buddies back to the dance floor. The moves are basic enough for even new TikTokers to jump on.

Learn a new language if you don’t already know it. TikTok is a nice place to mime in different languages that you don’t even know.

Tokers take a look at what the mirror sees; introspect!

But for those that are all about the fun, rotating your phone in the mirror does the trick.
