Yesterday, a gauntlet was thrown down on social media tagged the Ten-Year Challenge. To participate, the rules were simple. Participants were required to post a picture of themselves ten years before and a current picture of themselves. These pictures were to be placed side by side to show comparison. This unleashed a slew of stunning, hilarious and sometimes, unpleasant pictures. Social media came alive. From Instagram to Facebook to Twitter, all had enthusiastic participants. There were even mock photos.
However, what stole the spotlight were pictures of Bobrisky and Toke Makinwa. Bobrisky is a popular Nigerian cross dresser and internet personality while Toke Makinwa is also a well-known controversial radio personality, vlogger and author. Social media was taken aback by the outrageous differences between the personalities then and now pictures.
In reaction to this, some celebrated their achievements while others disapproved of it. In all, it was a fun challenge in which other celebrities such as Don Jazzy, Simi, Yemi Alade, DJ Cuppy social influencers and a host of others participated in.
We relished the good, bad and the ugly. Even as our correspondent followed the trend, she noticed that most people agreed that Bobrisky’s picture topped all others hence crowning him the winner of the Ten-Year Challenge.
