Dineo Ranaka was one of several South African celebrities that participated in the #UmlandoChallenge, which was initiated by amapiano performers Toss, 9umba, and Mdoovar. The radio broadcaster was suspended from Metro FM for misconduct after filming herself dancing to the amapiano song inside the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) headquarters.

Several celebrities took part in the #UmlandoChallenge, twisting their hips to the Umlando amapiano music starring Sir Trill, Lady Du, and Slade.

Dineo Ranaka took part in the #UmlandoChallenge by dancing around the SABC radio studio in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. The 38-year-old demonstrated her talents while standing on top of a table and chair.

Ranaka has already removed the video from her social media accounts, but Twitter users were able to view it.



A source told City Press that Dineo Ranaka had been suspended from Metro FM for misconduct following her participation in the #UmlandoChallenge. “Unlike other people who did the challenge, she danced on top of expensive furniture,” the source added. 

The radio presenter’s suspension was confirmed by SABC’s group executive for corporate affairs, Gugu Ntuli. 

“The SABC can confirm that Dineo Ranaka is not scheduled on Metro FM at this stage and as a matter of principle the corporation does not discuss matters relating to its independent contractors in public.”

Ranaka has been absent from her show The Bridge which airs between 9:00 and 12:00 on weekdays. Stand-in presenter Marian Nyako-Lartey has taken over her duties.
