1. What is #WoChallenge?
Olamide is one of the most beloved Nigerian music artists, and each one of his singles in the past few years has instantly become huge hits. Wo hasn’t been an exception, and within hours from the release, the song could already be heard from thousands of cars, phones, and houses in Nigeria.
Olamide decided to take the promotion of the single one step further and introduced the #WoChallenge on his Instagram. To take part in the challenge, fans had to upload a video of themselves dancing to the new song.
At first, the winner of the contest was promised a cash prize of ₦1 million and a chance to star in the new Olamide video. However, Olamide has gotten such an overwhelming response from thousands of talented Nigerian dancers that later he decided that there were going to be three winners with each winner getting ₦1 million.
2. Who won #WoChallenge?
The contest started only last week, and the first winner was announced on August 12. The first person winning the challenge was Ogundeji Azeez Ayobami. Here is the photo of the winner of the cash prize:
