How to remove the red effect has skyrocketed in google searches since the trend of the silhouette challenge- Pop Buzz
Non-Consensual felonies seem to be a crime most people still take very lightly even after several years of schooling society every year now 2021, we find ourselves treading over the topic-again.
This comes after the silhouette challenge on TikTok, which has taken the internet by storm. if you are unfamiliar with this spicy trend- it involves a person dressed fully and showing off their sensual moves typically next to a doorway. The whole body is then covered by a red video effect resulting in a shadow engulfed image giving off a silhouette effect hence the trend is then called the ‘silhouette’ challenge. The background track is catchy no lie- It features the classic ‘Put Your Head On My Shoulder by Paul Anka then quickly lapses to Doja Cat’s Streets which offers a sensual vibe to the challenge. Think more of the ‘Buss IT’ challenge which typically starts by showing the featured person with plain-jane looks then immediately to an alluring look as the beat drops.
Sure this all sounds fun and the whole initiative point of the challenge was a form of empowerment to make everyone, either young or old feel daringly hot and comfortable in their bodies at the comfort of their home. The commotion began when people started circulating the idea to remove the red effect so to disable the silhouette effect. This quickly became a buzzkill for many, especially for those who had turned things up a notch by participating in the challenge only in their birthday suit (naked). This alarming reveal was swiftly warned by tweeter user
@ZySavy – “If yall do the #silhouttechallenge please do not do it completely naked. Long story short, red is a primary colour that canbe easily removed with video editing. if you don’t want your naked highly visible butt shared on the web… you know the rest”
To support this statement further- google searches with ‘how to remove red light on silhouette challenge’ has skyrocketed since the start of this viral trend. Good news though, perpetrators can be fined up to R300 000 and a maximum of four years in prison in South African law should they be found guilty of such an act.

Beware Of Death Hoax
Before you start believing anyone is dead,
it is very important to observe if any reliable media has published about the
death, cause of death, and if family of the person rumored to have died
has issued statement on their death.
a lot of fake information especially death hoax are spread through online, and most of the death hoax are targeted at famous people.
Males and Females experience the world differently. It is
quite evident how each sex performs in different fields and especially on
People may have many theories as to, and I would have theories of my own on as to why its apparent that the women are killing the Social Media Game more than men.
Let me challenge you for a second. You can either do it
right now or at a later stage after reading this article. Head onto your
Instagram and go to your followers list, you’d notice that approximately 70-90%
of your followers depending on how big your account is or maybe if you may know
persons either close to you or persons you know on social media that wants to be
an Influencer with everything they got, on Instagram specifically, have an
attractive feed, they have a few passion, but they do not have many followers
to ultimately qualify to be an influencer or even a micro-influencer, but they
want to be that person that has millions of followers because you love food,
love to travel or love travel photography.
Unfortunately, that industry is brutal to men. Its evident
that sexism exist in the real world, and that there is a huge pay gap with
women and men. In the real world, for years it is better to be a man than it is
to be a woman.
This Is A Bad Issue, do not get me wrong, frankly it needs
to be resolved in the real world, however if you a male and you want to become
an influencer, you have little to no chance to be one because looking at the
state of the influencer market today, it is dominated by females.
Females are better at making communities and creating content…the
statement is arguable yes, but that is just the way it is. Females are super extraordinary
in the influencer market to-date. They dominating social media as is. Men just
can’t be travel, fashion influencers as successfully as females.
It is not easy to escalate as an influencer on Instagram unless you have a huge amount of content to post with the perfect balance in aesthetics, constant collaborations and high-quality content.
Examples of female influencers, that are increasingly upcoming and are already crushing it on Instagram.
Yes, there are male influencers who are crushing it, but if
you look at your social media, those males are either really good at fashion, fashion
streetwear or photography. They are just specialists at style and fashion. Some
can be really rich, constantly networking with rich people, hanging around
beautiful girls/models and collaborating with them or even getting shout outs.
Being an Artist perhaps.
You have to be really good at something in real life to be a
successful influencer and crush the market. You have to work extra hard to be
noticed and some will not even get noticed as quick as they expect, but for
females, the good news is, if you want to be an influencer, you do not
necessarily have to be good at something in real life, the industry is just
built that way. You can be good at social media and succeed at this life thing.
Males can dominate as well, but it is a uphill battle to get
there and dominate as fast as they want to. Females dominate the influencing
market and they surely can dominate the real world as well.

South Africa’s very own exceptional comedian must have a eye for architectural spaces, as he bought a contemporary megamansion such like this one in 2019 but sold it for about R300 million in 2020 and this 11000-square-foot luxury mansion, designed by Mark Rios in Bel-Air spans over three stories overlooking the city.
Trevor bought this one just last week. This house is fitted with a host of materials like stone, glass wood and the property has floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, where one can see a slight view of the city and out to the ocean. It includes a spa, gym, wine cellar, screening room, rooftop terrace, outdoor bar, and an infinity pool.
Trevor bought this from Mark Rios, an L.A Architect. From the street the home appears to be fitted with a series of cubes, as the home sits on a hillside but all-in-all is an exceptional, stunning home with six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, also includes a library and an office.
