I know y’all are over me lol but #BEYLLOWEEN is finally here! I wanted to do something different this year for Halloween and pay tribute to someone that I admire and respect so much—BEYONCE! This project was incredibly stressful to make but so much fun! I am NOT a dancer by any means—my friends always clown me for it lolll But I wanted to apply Beyoncé’s infamous work ethic to this project and see how far I could push myself. I could not have done this without the help of @kany16 teaching a non dancer all of this choreography. She’s the real MVP! And special thanks to my director and friend @mttalves who helped bring this vision to life from beginning to end. I couldn’t have done it without you ☺️ Everyone who was apart of this worked so hard and I appreciate you all so much!! I hope you all enjoy!

By trending the #SayNoToSocialMediaBill on Twitter, users created awareness especially for people who weren’t aware that this particular bill was also proposed a few years back. According to Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture in Nigeria,
“We must regulate social media in a manner that it doesn’t become a purveyor of fake news and hate speech.”
