Social distancing has restricted many social butterflies who would normally take to the club on weekends and kept them indoors to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
To while away time, DJ D-Nice’s virtual dance parties on Instagram Live lifted many ‘depressed’ souls who have been self-isolating during this pandemic.
These virtual parties, dubbed #ClubQuarantine, is one musical event that raked in many celebrity attendees and this Saturday’s edition got over 1000,000 viewers at a point enjoying the danceable tunes.
“I can’t believe that I started the Home School social distancing dance party just four days ago and it’s become a place for us to virtually dance together and stay connected,” D-Nice wrote in an Instagram post late last week.
“From my kitchen, I’m able to send positive vibrations to each of you. Thank you for rocking with me.”
The 49-year-old DJ, whose real name is Derrick Jones, came to the limelight from The Bronx music scene in the 1980s.
His nine-hour digital parties which he started last week has seen the likes of Missy Elliot, Will Smith and Oprah Winfrey join the party from their homes.

Others who were also keenly following the party that trended worldwide said they saw Michelle Obama, Dwanye Wade and Gabrielle Union-Wade and Rihanna get hooked on DJ D-Nice’s Instagram Live virtual party.
“I never would’ve imagined that the best party I would create and DJ would be from the comfort of my own home,” D-Nice wrote on Instagram in a separate post. “Homeschool is a thing!”
