There is no way we couldn’t have anticipated the year to start without a new social media challenge, which is why the latest dancing fad that has the internet buzzing is all the rage right now.

The #UmlandoChallenge entails shaking your hips from side to side and up and down in the most unusual and imaginative locations to strike the amapiano tune uMlando.

Origin of the uMlando Challenge

Toss produced the hit track uMlando, which features musicians such as 9umba, Mdoovar, Sino Msolo, Lady Du, Young Stunna, Sir Trill, and Slade. Toss is a rising star in the music industry, and uMlando is causing a stir on the radio and on TikTok. The challenge’s original video has received over 950,000 views on Twitter. Suspicious gyrating is also included in the dance routines.

People who have completed the challenge have delightfully performed in malls, in front of strange people, in bathrooms, and in parking lots, demonstrating their dance skills.

However, there have been proposals that women should not participate in the uMlando challenge, preferring to watch from afar.

Toss has expressed his gratitude for the challenge, which has helped the song gain even more traction. He took to Instagram to post some of his favorite videos, saying that the dance steps were influenced by Colombian superstar Shakira. He also teased her about taking part in the uMlando challenge.
