Nkao Tempela challenge

Zonke Mchunu, who plays Imani with Bukamina Fanele, who plays Gugu and Sharon Seno, who plays Marang on Muvhango, did the #Nkaotampela challenge, and they left Mzansi in stitches. Their video was shared on Zonke Mchunu’s TikTok account.


Nkao Tempela song

Nkao Tempela is an amapiano track that took the country over by storm. Three new artists sing it on the music scene, which goes by Ch’cco, Mellow and Sleazy. It’s a hit, the song is playlisted on the majority of the South African radio stations, and it’s topping charts.

Nkao Tempela Dance challenge

Nkao tampela has a specific dance done by first standing upright, moving one hand from the chest to the hip rhythm, whilst moving the upper body in vertical leaning motions. Ever since the Nkao Tempela challenge came out, social media has been buzzing with participants, and the numbers keep escalating, with more and more people joining daily.

Imani, Gugu and Marang took the video doing the challenge in the make-up and dressing rooms of the show Muvhango. These three weren’t quite doing it right. However, their challenge is goofy and funny to watch. They were having fun with it and laughed at themselves whilst filming.

It’s refreshing to see them let their hair down and have fun like this. Also, seeing the relationship, they have off-camera as colleagues are great, seeing how their characters seem to have some conflicts between them.
