Mzansi has reacted to an amapiano #mnikedancechallenge by TLC star Chilli as she left no crumbs with the dance track featuring DJ Maphorisa’s “Mnike”.
Chilli, whose real name is Rozonda Thomas, 52, is no stranger to African music, having previously shared her dance videos, and was complimented for her well-executed rhythm and dance skills.
Thomas is known for her musical influence as part of the female group TLC, originally made up of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Thomas, who together scored nine top-10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including four number one hit singles – “Waterfalls”, “No Scrubs”, “Unpretty” and “Creep”. The group went quiet in the early 2000s after the death of Lopes in 2002, and released their final album, “TLC”, in 2017, featuring the single, “Way Back”.
