Some Nigerian celebrities joined the #ShettimaChallenge alongside other Nigerians on the micro blogging platform, Twitter.
Naija News understands that challenge was triggered by the outfit worn by the All Progressive Congress, vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima to the Nigerian Bar Association conference in Lagos on Monday, August 22.
Young Nigerians decided to create a trend called #ShettimaChallenge with images of several of them, donning various sizes of suit with a red tie, and pairs of gym shoes across Nigerian twitter to mock the APC chieftain over his outfit.
Amongst the celebrities who joined the challenge is, Nollywood actress, Toni Tones.
The actress, like others, donned an oversized coat with a long red tie whilst posturing like the VP.
