Twitter Weighs in on Thando Thabethe Doing the Umlando Challenge After it Landed Dineo Ranaka in Trouble. Could this be a case of not all animals being the same, or there is more to this! A few days ago, Dineo Ranaka joined the growing number of social media users who took on the trending Umlando Challenge.
The veteran media personality, producer and reality TV star filmed herself dancing on top of office furniture, at her work place. Her video immediately trended, and it was such a beautiful moment to see Dineo making news, for something besides controversy. That was short lived though, as it was reported that she has been suspended by Metro FM for the video. The news received a mixed reaction, with some applauding the SABC for the suspension and others saying she should have gotten away with a warning.
Among those who stood with Dineo, is media personality and actress, Pearl Thusi. As a former presenter and Metro FM, Pearl stated that it was toxic. It is not clear though if Thando Thabethe‘s latest video, could be a sign that she is also standing in solidarity with Dineo. The talented actress and media personality also took to social media to share a video of herself participating in the Umlando Challenge. Thando and her crew at 94.7, danced on top of furniture, in a fun competition among themselves.
Now, this has once again left social media users divided. Some people applauded Thando and her team for doing the challenge the way they did it, in order to show Metro FM that they suspended Dineo for nothing. They stated that this was an arranged and a publicity stunt against Metro. On the other hand, a number of people feel that Thando and her team, just used the challenge to trend. Seeing that Dineo was in the spotlight, they believe 94.7 just took advantage of that, so that they too could make headlines.
