Just because there’s a pandemic going on, doesn’t mean the party has to stop. And one DJ has kept it going, for 10 hours at a time.
The coronavirus has upended daily lives, with thousands of deaths around the world. Many people are staying at home in an effort to stem the rapid-fire spread.
Celebrity DJ D-Nice has begun hosting virtual dance parties on his Instagram Live channel in an effort to lift spirits as people self-isolate over coronavirus concerns.
Many of his A-list friends, including Rihanna, Common and John Legend, have made guest appearances thanks to Instagram Live’s split feature, which lets two people appear in a split-screen.
On Wednesday, D-Nice posted on Instagram that he would be hosting “Home School,” a “social distancing dance party.”
He set up his turntables in his kitchen and invited his 950,000 followers to tune in and dance along.
What followed was a nine-hour long party that featured guest appearances from celebrities such as LL Cool J, Mary J Blige, Naomi Campbell and Lena Waithe.
