The magic of KiKi challenge on Bollywood actresses these days has gone as well. While the Kiki challenge is taking over social media worldwide, with artists and figures capturing their dances on mobile cameras, the former head of the Central Traffic Department, Magdy El-Shahid, said that Egyptian artists who performed the Kiki challenge might face a penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine up to EGP 3,000 for disabling traffic and riding while the doors of the vehicle are opened.
We are accustomed to import foreign phenomena, but we have to stop this… I am not afraid of the dance, but I am afraid the spread of this challenge among the Egyptians that may cause traffic congestion,” he said. The Kiki challenge was apprently started by Shiggy, a social media comedian, when he posted a video of himself dancing to the song.
Police departments and safety officials around the world are warning against the trend, and in some cases reprimanding people who take part in this extreme version of it. People who film themselves performing the challenge will be faced with a 2,000 dirham fine ($545), 23 black points on their driver's licenses, and have their cars seized for 60 days.
KUWAIT CITY, July 24: The ‘Kiki' dance challenge, which has reached Kuwait, is forbidden by law and religion, reports Al-Rai daily. Others danced alongside their cars on a busy street, running the risk of getting hit by oncoming vehicles. Participants in this challenge get out of a moving car and leave the door open and dance on a public road next to the car, which is a danger to them and others on the road,” it said in a statement on Monday.
However, the challenge - which, in its proper form involves the challenger stepping out of a moving vehicle and dancing beside - has been recently outlawed by the Dubai Police as it can endanger road users. AMMONNEWS - The Central Traffic Department (CTD) said its personnel on Friday detected two violations related to the Kiki challenge”.
Unless you've thrown your phone into the sea or gone on some kind of social media abstinence - you probably won't have missed the v iral phenomenon that has been the #inmyfeelingschallenge , saturating your newsfeeds to the infectious beat of Drake over the last fortnight.
Drake's very long album was going to get attention no matter what, but at the same time, In My Feelings” wasn't a single, it has yet to receive a gimmicky video, and it wasn't a song initially pushed on Spotify's official playlists. Palestinians who take part in a dance challenge which sees people dancing besides a slow-moving vehicle while being recorded face a fine and jail, Palestinian police warned yesterday.
A viral trend could be a video, image, link or meme that becomes very popular through rapid and continuous circulation from person to person over the internet. The warrant for their arrests were issued for endangering the lives of others and offending public morals by using social media to promote practices that are incompatible with the UAE's values and traditions,” a statement from the prosecution said.
The law states that anyone obstructing traffic or endangering the lives of others will be subject to the aforementioned fine and up to Kikichallenge a year in jail according to Magdy El-Shahed, traffic expert and aide to the interior minister. However attempting it in the UAE violates several Federal Traffic Laws, including driving a vehicle in a dangerous manner, blocking traffic and using a mobile phone while driving.
Anyone can post a challenge on their social media account, tag some friends, create a hashtag and there you go, it becomes a trend, and spreads like wild fire. As part of the 'Kiki dance challenge', people get out of moving cars and dance to Canadian rapper Drake's song In My Feeling.
As a result, performing what has been coined as the 'Kiki Challenge' has been decreed as a serious traffic violation, punishable by up to Dhs2000 and 23 black points, as well as vehicle impounding for 60 days. One of the project's highlights is undoubtedly In My Feelings” - its Atlanta sample and Instagram bio-worthy lines have already inspired plenty of memes, and most recently, a viral dance challenge.
