VIDEO: Ciara nails the Umlando dance challenge

Like most amapiano music from Mzansi, the Umlando dance challenge has taken social media by storm- and even global stars like Ciara are joining in on the fun

Toss, 9umba, and Mdoovar’s big hit has blown up on TikTok where thousands of people have posted videos dancing along to it


In an Instagram post, Ciara posted a clip of her dancing to the beats of Umlando, which she incorrectly tagged as “Nigerian music”.

Wearing a blue wig and a pair of Perspex heels, Ciara shimmied her hips to the famous track.

But SA stars like Lerato Kganyago, Cassper Nyovest, and Pabi Cooper were quick to correct her that she was actually doing the Umlando challenge.

And fellow South Africans jumped in the comment section too.

Vinceduys: “Amapiano worldwide. This def ain’t Nigerian”

The_real_pearl_punk: “One thing about SA, we’re international”

Nonhle_top_model: “Not Ciara doing Umlando challenge”

Mph.o: “Cici from Diepkloof!”


Fellow singer Stefflon Don also shared a video of her doing the Umlando challenge.

And just like Ciara, South Africans thought she nailed it too! “Sis you fighting,” SA rapper Nadia Nakai posted in the comments section.
