If there’s one thing South Africans know to do well, it is dance. And we prove our worth over and over again with our various dance challenges.
From the “Sister Bethina” dance challenge to the internationally recognised “Jerusalema” - we’re always on the lookout for the next best dance move.
And it looks like Mzansi has found it in the #JohnVuliGateChallenge.
Trending on Twitter, the challenge is causing quite a stir and is already putting everyone in the holiday mode.
The amapiano song, “John Vuli Gate” by Mapara A Jazz Ft. Ntosh Gaz & Colano, is having Mzansi do their best rendition of the challenge with participants shaking their hips and bums.
The original video with the new dance move was posted by TikTok user @simpearl2, but others have quickly taken up the challenge.

One particular online dance video of a few women dancing to the song while holding two bottles of Russian Bear vodka outside a fuel station fired up this challenge - with Twitter users saying that the amapiano song may as well be the “song of the summer”.
Here are some of the best videos thus far:
