The Reason Behind #TheCoconutChallenge

American DJ and producer Dillon Francis was behind the remix of the iconic Filipino song. The remix is titled The Coconut Nut Malibu Remix.

#TheCoconutChallenge was initiated by rum company Malibu to raise awareness on the plight of small and medium enterprises in the U.S. that are severely affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The rum company pledged an initial $150,000 to the National Urban League to support businesses in the U.S., and also donated $1 for each #TheCoconutChallenge post from netizens in the US and Canada for a maximum contribution of $250,000.

Dillon Francis explains how the Filipino song Da Coconut Nut ended up as the movement’s anthem. “The Coconut Nut is a perfect lighthearted anthem for summer vibes, so I hope my new Malibu remix and #TheCoconutChallenge can provide a moment of reprieve while everything in the world still seems so uncertain,” said Dillon Francis.
