The word Silhouette means the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible in restricted light against a brighter background.
Recently the trend has been on Tik Tok and many ladies and even some men have taken part in the challenge but the reason I’m writing this is to show my disdain at the unnecessary hype it is getting with the rate Nigerians have condemned it and I began to wonder at the level of misplaced priority. Is it a shadow body image that is now our priority when there are more issues of serious concern?
Out of curiosity I went on TikTok to see and I was even more confused cos all I saw was 99.9% of ladies and men showing a shadow figure of their body in their underwear and not actually naked so why is this an issue if anyone decides to display a shadow image of his or her body?…and even if they are totally nude, I still wonder how a nude shadow should be given any hype when we see semi-nude ladies in broad day light every single day. ladies and guys go to beaches and swimming pools almost naked so is it a dark image of a body that is now a problem?
I am not in support of nudity in any form but I don’t think it is worth the hype they are giving to it …There are more important issues to deal with than hyping a mere online challenge that will soon be forgotten.
