1. What is the #FlipTheSwitchChallenge?
Unsurprisingly, the #FlipTheSwitchChallenge was born on TikTok, which is currently the breeding ground for the most interesting things happening on the internet. The challenge features one mandatory thing: Drake’s 2018 song called Nonstop.
To take part in the challenge, you will need a companion. The first person holds the phone and stands close to the mirror while performing the song, The other person, meanwhile, dances in the background. Before Drake sings the line “Look, I just flipped a switch”, the lights in the room are turned off, and when they go back on, it is revealed that the two people switched their outfits and positions.
The results of the switch can be understandably hilarious: the #FlipTheSwitchChallenge often features girlfriends and boyfriends, parents and children, and other pairs whose clothes swap produces the most unexpected and funny results.
The Nigerian comedian Bovi delighted millions of his fans when he uploaded his version of the challenge to Instagram. He chose his daughter as his #FlipTheSwitchChallenge partner, and it’s very likely that the girl was the one who inspired her father to try the challenge, as young people simply love TikTok.

Toni Tones, a beloved Nigerian actor and media personality, invited her mother to take part in the challenge. Their version of the trend was not only wholesome, but also very funny, since the pair recreated not only each other’s poses and facial expressions, but also the outfits and hairstyles with plenty of attention to details.
