4 Trending TikTok Challenges To Try During MCO


With the Movement Control Order (MCO) still in effect in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Malaysians stuck at home have been unable to resist the allure of creating their own TikTok video or completing one of the many TikTok challenges. TikTok, a short-form video-sharing app, has indeed taken the world—largely forced to stay home—by storm. Young or old, everyone has found a reason to film themselves being silly, outrageous or crazy all for the sake of a TikTok video.

If you’re on TikTok, here are three noteworthy TikTok challenges to try. And if you’ve managed to get through the MCO period TikTok-free, these trending challenges may have you downloading the app after reading this article.

With nearly everyone fighting boredom at home, the #LepakAtHome TikTok challenge is a way for TikTok users in Singapore and Malaysia to win prizes while flexing their creativity.

Organized by Sony Music Singapore, the TikTok contest was also a way for them to promote AJ Mitchell’s latest track titled Spring Break. The contest will end on 29th April 2020.
