Trendy music often leads to trendy dance moves. There are dances that come to stay like the Vosho and the Pantsula, and then there are those that some people hope won't stay. The #MalwedheChallenge is one dance that SA authorities hope will blow over real soon.
South Africa, and the African continent really, have been taken by storm with the #MalwedheChallenge - a dance that calls for people to 'faint' where they stand.
This new trend is brought to dancers by King Monada and has authorities worried.
While dancers who aren't as good with hitting a Vosho gladly accept the #MalwedheChallenge and 'faint' on the spot, authorities fear that people could really get hurt.
Malwedhe is a new hit dance track and the word loosely translate to 'faint' or 'collapse'. Music lovers listening to the song simply fall down at the right parts of King Monada's catchy track.
It's said that this song will be THE track to listen during the December chill time.
However, the dance does come at a price. School learners did the dance in their class and got suspended for it.
TimesLIVE reports that some people did the challenge in their car and nearly had an accident.
For those curious about the track and the dance, here's a look at the #MalwedheChallenge:
