More than 100,000 attended rapper D-Nice’s Instagram Live event
As we all isolate in our homes amid the coronavirus crisis, LA rapper D-Nice went live from his Instagram account on Saturday night (March 21) for Club Quarantine – now seemingly the hottest event in town. Using the hashtag #ClubQuarantine, the streaming event has already attracted the attention of Rihanna, Missy Elliott, Oprah Winfrey, Bernie Sanders, Kelly Rowland, Usher, and more.
With over 100,000 people attending the virtual party, D-Nice played a 45-minute set between messages of solidarity and reminders to maintain social distance and wash your MF hands.
An increasing number of celebrities are using social media to connect with their fans in this period of self-isolation. Last week, Christine and the Queens announced that she will be performing a series of livestream “impromptu” shows from Ferber studios in Paris, while Charli XCX is putting together a series of daily online events on Instagram Live, which include the likes of Diplo, Kim Petras, Clairo, Rita Ora, and more.
In the last couple of weeks, artists including Lil Nas X and Megan Thee Stallion have also stepped up to aid fans over social media, sending money to help them weather quarantine and potential job losses due to the spread of coronavirus.
