The #DrogbaChallenge Is the Latest Dance Craze You Need to Get Into

These young dancers' take on the #DrogbaChallenge has too much sauce, too much juice.

It's high time you get hip to the #DrogbaChallenge if you haven't already.

The artist behind the backing track, "Drogba (Joanna)," is Ivorian-British artist Afro B, a pioneer of AfroWave—a sound from the UK that blends dancehall, afrobeats and rap. Those said elements can be seen in the dance moves these talented folks share with the world.

Just like Niniola's "Maradona" and when Davido laments, "I don't want to be a player no more/'Cause my friends call me Cristiano" in "Fall," there's an organic blend of football references in popular African music. In Afro B's track, his nods to the Ivorian living legend, Didier Drogba.

Ever since "Drogba" dropped in the middle of last month, there's been a plethora of cool kids from the diaspora vibing to the track in viral dance videos—and we had to share our favorites with you all.

Here's 10 of them.


1. Her facial expressions are everything—she's essentially saying, "Having this much finesse is nothing."

2. Effortless swag.

3. There's no way dance moves this fly come this easy.

4. Even Afro B himself had to get into his own challenge.

5. Yasssss sis!

6. Uncle's got all the moves.

7. Obsessed with how they include the 'shaku shaku' in their routine.

8. Make sure whoever's recording you dance gasses you up like she does.

9. The end blows the whole room away.

10. They kill it all the way from France.
