Nigerians are celebrating their beautiful skin with the #BrownSkingirlChallenge

Nigerian Twitter has been on fire since Beyonce released her Lion King-inspired album on Friday, July 19, 2019.

Her latest body of work, 'The Lion King: The Gift', initially got many talking because of the featured Nigerian acts - Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Wizkid, Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage.

Another reason for the buzz is a particular song called 'BROWN SKIN GIRL' which starts with Beyonce's daughter Ivy Carter, Wizkid, Beyonce herself and emerging alt-Hip Hop act SAINt JHN.

It has since sparked the social media hashtag, #BrownSkingirlChallenge, which has Nigerians celebrating their beautiful skin. 

It is the fourth Twitter trend in the country with over 49.3K tweets.
