1. What is #DontRushChallenge?
Millions of people on the planet are currently affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent measures from the government to stop the spread of the virus. Self-isolation and quarantine are being practised in dozens of countries around the world, including Nigeria.
Whole families are stuck at home and are not going to work, school, social gatherings, shopping, or beauty procedures. However, that doesn’t prevent some of them from having as much fun as possible. This is how the #DontRushChallenge was born.
The #DontRushChallenge is dedicated to the fun of getting ready to go out without actually going out. The challenge, which is mostly recreated by girls, features a girl in her house clothes with no makeup. After a switch, we can see the girl in the most glamorous attire and with a full face of makeup.
To make things even more fun, groups of girlfriends also partake in the #DontRushChallenge. They take turns transforming into beauty queens as if they are preparing for a girls night out. Needless to say, the whole challenge is not incredibly entertaining, but also a great way to showcase your adorable friendship, fierce fashion sense, and expert makeup skills.
2. Top 7 #DontRushChallenge versions
Over the past week, thousands of people took part in the #DontRushChallenge. The challenge became especially popular in Nigeria and among Nigerian girls living abroad. We had the pleasure of witnessing some of the most incredible transformations, and here are 7 of our favourite ones.
The beloved Big Brother Naija contestant and TV personality Kim Oprah recruited her girlfriends to participate in the challenge. To create even smoother transitions, the girls pretended to toss each other a makeup brush.

Some people took the opportunity of the #DontRushChallenge and used it to create a competition between Nigeria and Ghana. It made us wonder who will be victorious in the end!

Even though the #DontRushChallenge has mostly seen entrees from girls, men also couldn’t stand aside from the growing trend. There are several outstanding versions of the challenge from guys, but we were particularly impressed by this one, which celebrates doctors and other representatives of the medical profession.
Black men in white coats. We are medical doctors, dentists, dental students, medical students, residents, fitness enthusiasts, and so much more. @bostonmadetr3 @_marcusdotcom @odogwu.dds @nn_fit @deechief @dr.ifedi @wusage_livinnlovin #DontRushChallenge @bps_experience @balleralert @theshaderoom @reseaudocteur @blackdentistsmatter @blackdoctorsmatter @blackmalephds @blackdoctorslounge @blackmeninmedicine @blackkingsmatter @melanindoc @melanininstem @melanin.feed @melaninhcp @naijamademe @naijamedics_connect @naijadoctorsmatter @nigeriamusic @harvardnsa @nigeriansinmedicine @nigeriainvideos @fitnigeria

After seeing men represent the medical field, female doctors and medical professionals created their own version of the #DontRushChallenge featuring white medical coats. In the times when doctors and nurses are under immense pressure from the pandemic, this is a great way to lift their spirits.

The Nigerian music superstar Falz had a lot of fun with his recreation of the #DontRushChallenge. He decided not to share the spotlight with anyone and instead became the sole actor in his video for the challenge.
