From Pretoria to Umlazi, South African educators are taking social media by storm with their epic dance moves.
A vibrant teacher Thembakazi Mnguni from Velabahleke High School in Umlazi, recently shared a heart-warming video of her and her students dancing away the matric exam blues.
In a viral video, Mnguni and a group of matric learners are seen doing the “Rathatha challenge” from Master KG’s “Wayawaya” hit song, featuring Team Mosha.
With just under 130 000 TikTok followers, Mnguni’s video has garnered over half a million likes as her fans continue to share the video on multiple social media platforms including Velabahleke High School’s Facebook page.

This comes just days after the Pretoria High School for Girls teacher Miss Bullock also grabbed the headlines with her TikTok video, jamming to Robot Boii and Mellow’s banger “Salary Salary”.
“Teacher Understood the Assignment. 🔥,” tweeted @RefilWest.

If you’ve ever been an anxious teen or to a school that never acknowledged your genre of music ONCE at a social, never mind knew pop culture references of your Gen, you’ll understand why…
