Cameroonian Minister Becomes A Meme After An Awkward Greeting With His President


The Internet has shown us time and time again that it can make the most mundane thing viral and this is another case of this very nature of the age we are living in. No one is usually spared and this one transpired all the way from Cameroon

The picture in question is a photo ofย Bidoung Kpwatt, Cameroon’s Minister for Sports and Physical Education greeting Cameroon’s President, Paul Biya in a respectful manner. This did not go unnoticed and people on Twitter were quick to replicate the ‘submissive’ greeting in a matter of ways where they termed it as the Bidoung Challenge.

This was one of the most shared tweets showing a collage of the various imitations done by people.

Ugandans jumped into the challenge with this effort.

People then decided to greet animals, like this kitten

Or this poor dog who didn’t know what is happening

Some imitations were cool, like this levitation attempt that looks quite surreal.

But it got weirder when someone decided to try it with a glass of what it looks like milk

But some attempts went over the line like the ones shown on the bottom of the grid.

Or this attempt of someone greeting one’s foot and the other of what looks like a human centipede.

Funny enough, people started employing what they learnt in mathematics class

This is not the first time we have seen an African politician being made fun off on Twitter. Earlier in the year we saw a photo of Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni, where he took a photo by the roadside which made people come up with the Museveni challenge.
