Nigerians are trending this challenge to pay respect to this intelligent Nigerian economist. The whole fashion idea of #BeLikeNgozichallenge is to dress up like Ngozi with her trademark outfit of African print clothing (Ankara) and specially styled headgear. Putting on an eyeglass is a plus to partakers of this challenge.
Both young and old are seen on Twitter and other social media platforms displaying their best Ngozi Iweala’s trademark impression.
Past fashion challenges this year such as #Bussitchallenge and #Silhouettechallenge causing confusion as to whether women are just about their sexual appeal. This new trending fashion challenge #BeLikeNgozichallenge is a refreshing outlook to women’s pride.
