Johannesburg – We all know that dancing has the power to lift spirits and bring on a sense of freedom and happiness, however, what can be more powerful is dancing with a purpose.
Short-form mobile video platform, TikTok, in collaboration with 1st for Women, have officially launched #MyBodyStandUp – a powerful dance challenge that aims to raise awareness about gender-based violence.
This challenge goes alongside a newly released track created by award-winning singer Lira, electronic group GoodLuck, former Jamali member Mariechan and local rapper Gigi Lamayne, called My Body, which Zozibini is asking locals to stream in support.
Every time the track is streamed, downloaded or bought, all proceeds go towards the 1st for Women Foundation which supports gender-based violence eradication programs in South Africa, and Miss Universe is calling on us all to join.
As something close to Zozibini Tunzi’s heart, she is calling on TikTok users to make their contribution and support the cause.
In her video, she encourages users to stream this powerful anthem to contribute to the 1st for Women Foundation which has been helping victims and survivors of abuse.
We are challenging you to stand up to woman abuse with 1st for women and the #MyBodyStandUp challenge
To further drive awareness around gender-based violence and the soundtrack, local celebrities and creators have joined this powerful dance challenge – take a look at their dance moves below:
