2020 saw the rise of the famous pallbearers from Ghana who went viral with their coffin dance that spread like wildfire online. It seems that they are still able to cash in on the fame of a video that was released nearly 2 years ago.

So much so, that the group was able to earn over Ksh100 million from selling meme NFT

The group joined the NFT on the 7th of this month and auctioned off one of its video memes after gaining a large fan base around the world.

Since then, the group has earned over a million dollars (Ksh 120 million shillings) after selling at one of the first Non-Fungible Token (NFT) auctions with their 10-second meme.

3F Music, a Dubai-based group was the highest bidder, buying the Coffin Dance meme for $1,046,079.54 (Ksh 120,665,274.94).

The group has then pledged to donate $250,000 of the proceeds from the Coffin Dance meme to Ukrainian war relief efforts.

According to the leader of the pallbearers, Benjamin Aidoo, the money will be donated to Ukrainian charities to help mitigate the hardship brought about by the ongoing war with Russia.
