Ever since ALS Ice Bucket challenge started trending internationally, you knew it was just a matter of time before celebrities in Nigeria joined in on the fun and started challenging themselves with the Ice Bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS a common ailment in the USA.
Just yesterday, we posted some of the Nigerian notable names who have done their ice bucket challenge, but it seems like Nigerians (especially on twitter) are not too thrilled about the idea.
Check out some reactions on twitter from Nigerian celebrities doing the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Who nominated the first Nigerian popular name that started the ice bucket challenge? Or someone just nominated himself and passed it on?
