If you are on any form of social media, you most likely have come across a black and white picture of a female you know alongside the hashtag #ChallengeAccepted

The viral trend has seen the likes of some of the biggest female celebrities and public profiles participate, locally and abroad.

Now, Somizi has joined in on all the action and has posted his own version of the challenge – with a clip of him in drag, flaunting his alter ego Madam Gigi.

#Challengeaccepted thanks @moneoa for nominating me…..I dedicate this post to all the women of the world,” he captioned the flamboyant post.

We are because of others and as women, even more so! Being a working mom of two, soon to be three girls makes me realise the enormous responsibility of showing them that #womensupportingwomen is not just a hashtag or a trend, but a lifetime commitment. That’s why I am so excited to offer 50 women a chance to grow with me and to get a chance to further their educations with @getsmarter_online @usb.ed and @uctgraduateschoolofbusiness Each woman selected will get 2 courses worth about R30000. To enter, simply visit my blog, @modernmommyblog and see the latest post. There is a simple Google form to fill in and the applications must be submitted before midnight on the 29th of July (that’s tomorrow night, midnight!) #nobackrow #getsmarteronline #lifelonglearning #womeninbusiness #challengeaccepted #workingmom #womenforwomen
