#KalyppoChallenge became fashionable and trendy this month after a picture of the opposition flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo sipping the fruit juice went viral on social media.

The picture of the NPP’s Presidential nominee which was meant to possibly mock Nana Akuffo Addo has interestingly started a social media challenge.

People who are supporting the challenge take pictures of themselves while sipping Kalypo and post them on social media.

However, the total number fell short of the 60.7% people whose reaction to it was neutral.

On social media, the viral photo generated more views on Twitter than anywhere else.

The network topped the chart of social media channels where this picture was used the most, followed by Facebook and Instagram.


On Twitter, out of the total interactions, 72.4% of them were retweets, and 25.0% of them were original posts from users.


In effect, Nana Akufo-Addo appears to be playing the election campaign game so well, as a Sentiment Score of 71 out of 100 indicates that despite the idea that the photo would dent his image, it rather helped spur the NPP flagbearer’s campaign.
