Eleven days into the new year and the Umlando Challenge has already been issued.

The latest trending dance craze has South Africans rising to the occasion in hip-swinging hilarity.

Umlando is a track tha features Toss, 9umba and Mdoovar.

Unfortunately ladies, this challenge is reserved for the men in Mzansi.

Creating a buzz on social media the Umlando Challenge has men dancing to the catchy amapiano beat just about anywhere.

In fact, the crazier the location, the better the views.

One gent took on the challenge on top of a V-Class Mercedes Benz.

The origin of the challenge is unknown but the trend became more popular after DJ Maphorisa gave it a go.

It wasn’t long afterwards that the hashtag trended with scores of SA men taking on the challenge.

Unpacking a car full of groceries didn’t stop another gent from showing off his dance skills.

One thing’s for sure, where there’s a beat, South Africans will find the time to jive to it.

Social media challenges pop up all the time. If you’re taking on the #UmlandoChallenge be sure to tag @KayaOn959
