The #EbilowozoChallenge started off as a joke when Walter Keys recorded a short video of himself singing Shifah Musisi's latest single "Ebilowozo". Then it became a movement as people started challenging each other to see who could do it better. To spice things up, we decided to reward the best "challenger". Shifah Musisi decided to have breakfast with whoever sent in the best challenge!
The response to the challenge was massive. We received hundreds of videos of people singing Ebilowozo in their own versions. Challenges came from in and out of the country. Some danced, others just slayed! Then we narrowed it to the top seven and asked fans to vote for their best challenger.
Well, if the #EbilowozoChallenge videos came in the hundreds, the voting came in the thousands! In a bid to be declared winners, some of the contestants devised strategies of garnering as many votes as possible, some invited friends and family to vote them while others sent out broadcast messages canvassing for votes. Some even neglected the "one man, one vote" rule and voted as many times as they could type the name of their favorite contestant. It was fun.
In the end, we just narrowed it down to the top three who got to have breakfast with Shifah Musisi on 18/4/2018 at Cafe Javas Kamwokya!
The top three were;
Walusimbi Shafic (contemporary dancer)
