The Dancing Pallbearers of Ghana have sold meme NFT for $1 million.



Aside from the Covid-19 epidemic, a particularly dismal trend defined the year 2020. 

The group of young men attempting to convert funerals into hearty transitions took over social media timelines. 

They are Ghanaian pallbearers who have captivated the hearts of the globe with their elegant movement while transporting bodies to their ultimate resting places during final burial rites. 

The team's casket-carrying skills have gone viral in videos showing them orchestrating a choreographed dance, raising and lowering it, and even sitting on the floor if necessary. 

After bits of a BBC piece were added to reactions to social media posts to depict impending devastation, it became a meme over time. 


Though the Dancing Pallbearers were well-received for their performance and made a good income from the media that accompanied their newfound renown, no one could have predicted their worth two years later. 

The collective is now worth more than a million dollars. They have yet to sell their 10-second meme in one of the illustrious NFT auctions. 

NFTs have exploded in popularity over the last year as art and investors scramble to get a piece of the latest blockchain boom, with multimillion-dollar art collections being auctioned all over the world. 

The video meme was created by the Dancing Pallbearers team and released on NFT on April 7. 

3F Music was the highest bidder in the bidding round, with the Pallbearer meme selling for $1,046,079.54 (327.00ETH) on April 9. 

The sum places the meme among the most valuable NFTs in the world, having surpassed the million-dollar level. 

Benjamin Aidoo, the Pallbearers' leader, took to social media after the sale to congratulate the Dubai-based music production firm on winning the bid. 

The Coffin Dance meme will now be officially owned by 3F Music as a result of this remarkable acquisition. 


3F Music has a reputation for buying NFTs that are based on memes. According to rumors, it just paid $993,000 in ETH for NFT versions of memes based on Disaster Girl, The Overly Attached Girlfriend, and the two Creepy Chans.
