TikToker Keara Wilson has a major reason to celebrate.
She has just been awarded the copyrights to the #SavageChallenge, which centers around Megan Thee Stallion‘s song ‘Savage.’
Full story below…
Wilson created the challenge early last year and recently attended a dinner celebration for #Creators4BIPOC month, where she learned that she had been awarded the copyrights to the challenge.

In addition to Wilson, five other creators were also surprised with their copyrights at the #Creators4BIPOC event. Young Deji, Fullout Cortland, Nae Nae Twins, Chloe Arnold, and Mya Johnson, and Chris Cotter were also honored.
The initiative is spearheaded by famed choreographer Jaquel Knight (pictured above), who leads choreography for the likes of Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion.
It comes after many Black TikToker’s staged a strike in protest of their viral dance moves being copied and oft uncredited.
