Rochester mum-of-four Donna Fenn goes viral with Kiki Challenge

By Sean McPolin

A mum-of-four's Kiki challenge video has gone viral on Facebook.

Donna Fenn, of Sycamore Road, Rochester, recorded herself doing the famous challenge to kid's favourite baby shark song in a video which has since racked up over four-and-a-half million views.

The social media trend sees people get out of moving cars and begin to dance to rapper Drake's hit 'In My Feelings'.

40-year-old Donna admitted she was just doing it as a laugh and didn't expect it to get shared over 51,000 times.

She said: "My 17-year-old daughter was watching all the Kiki challenges, and I didn't even know what the song was.

"She told me I wouldn't know it's not a Peppa Pig or Baby Shark song, so I decided to make the video for all the other mum's out there that feel the same way.

"If I knew it was going to go viral I would have done my hair and dressed better."

The former Chapter Secondary School for Girls student revealed she didn't think it would get shared as much as it has.

She added: "I had no idea at all. I didn't even make the post public at first, it was only because all my friends kept asking to share it.

"It was just us mummy's having a giggle, I never even thought this would happen, It was just for fun and so my baby could his mum doing the baby shark - he won't let me have my phone back because he wants to keep watching it."

Despite the video getting more than 24,000 likes and nearly double the amount of comments, there has been some negative comments.

Donna said: "I've had some amazing comments from people all around the world, as well as some hurtful and nasty comments from haters.

"Some have called me fat and insulted my haircut - it's just been silly comments like that, but a lot of people have said it's brightened their days.

"I'm glad it's done so well and blown up, I'm still trying to get my head round it."
