Canadian pop-singer Drake’s latest song “In My Feelings” has taken social media by storm as a new “dance challenge” goes viral.
Over the last few days the hashtag #KikiChallenge has been trending on social networking sites. The idea behind the Kiki Challenge is to leave the car while its slowly moving, open the door and dance outside while the vehicle is still moving.
Celebrities and fans have been creating their own versions of the song, posting short clips of themselves performing the trending dance on social media.
The challenge started when Instagram user theshiggyshow posted a video of himself last month dancing in the street to the Drake song.
However, UAE authorities have warned the public against performing the dance challenge as it can endanger road users.
The Dubai Police has said people who perform the Kiki challenge are committing serious traffic violations like driving a vehicle in a dangerous manner, blocking traffic and using a mobile phone while driving.
UAE Federal Traffic Law, stipulates that dangerous driving involves AED 2,000 and 23 black points as well as impounding of the vehicle for 60 days for driving a vehicle in a way that endanger the lives of other road users.
In Abu Dhabi, warrants of arrest for three social media influencers in the UAE have already been issues after they posted videos of themselves taking part in the challenge.
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,” according to a statement from the Abu Dhabi Public Prosecution.
