Chika Waga, also known as Chikawaga, Shicawaga and Is This the First Meme of 2024?, refers to a comedy skit in which a young kid comments "Chika Waga" after observing his brother fall, introducing "the first meme of 2024." The clip, originally posted in January 2024, inspired parodies and ironic memes based on it over the following months.


On January 7th, 2024, the skit comedy YouTube[1] channel BolingBros uploaded a YouTube short titled "The First Meme Of 2024!!!" The video starts with a young boy asking, "Is this the first meme of 2024???" with his brother falling down next to him and the boy commenting, "Chika waga!" two times. The boy's brother proceeds to repeat the phrase, with the third brother then joining in. The video (shown below) accumulated over 19 million views in six months.
