1. Viral #MatorokisiChallenge sends SA into a frenzy with dance videos

Last year, King Monada’s dance hit Malwedhe proved to be very popular for the song, but also due to the dance craze it inspired.

Countless videos were shared on social media, showing how South Africans were fainting while the song played in the background. Now, it seems Limpopo-born artist Makhadzi has inspired a dance craze of her own, thanks to her recent hit song called Matorokisi.

The song title means 'train coaches' and the public hasn't waited for an invitation to perform different variations of the train element in the dance.

The Citizen reported that the dance move was inspired by the traditional Venda dance domba - as done by young women on the cusp of adulthood.

2. Teen takes best friend to matric farewell, photos warm SA's hearts

Tania du Plessis is one proud mommy and she has every right to be. Her son and his matric farewell date, whom du Plessis dubbed his bestie, wowed the country with their beautiful photos.

The post read:

"This why #imstaying and have stayed. My son and his best friend at their Matric farewell. I'm staying because I fought hard for my children to live in a free, beautiful and colourful South Africa. I am proud to be a mama of Africa. Ek bly net hier!"

The photos gathered over 16 000 views since it was shared on Thursday and South Africans were in awe of the stunning duo.

3. Yvonne Chaka Chaka and Dr Mhinga celebrate 30 years of marriage

It's not often that we see a couple reach an incredible milestone like 30 years of marriage in today's world, which is why an occasion like this is really special to legendary veteran singer, Yvonne Chaka Chaka and her hubby, Dr Mandlalele Mhinga.

Yvonne took to Instagram this morning to share her special day with her fans. She posted a diagram which emphasises the significance of 7 October.

She wrote:

"God is amazing all the time. 30 years ago Dr Mhinga asked for my hand in marriage and I said Yes I DO. 30 years later we still together. Today is our 30th wedding anniversary. I can not stop thanking the Lord who brought us together, I was 24. Now I am 54 and we have been together for 30 years. Time flies, 7th October 1989 we said Yes We Do. We Thank You Lord. We thank our families, our children and our friends. And all those who have supported us and encouraged us a big Thank you. Tiny."

4. 6 Pics and videos from 'Uzalo' actress Baby Cele's awesome Membeso

Baby Cele was all smiles at her membeso and we can understand why - she and her hubby, Thabo Moloka, are what their friends call the embodiment of real love.

The couple had their white wedding in 2017 and this day - when they have their traditional wedding - has been a long time coming.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that everyone was excited about the special day and it was certainly worth the wait. At least, it was worth the wait for those lucky enough to attend. For the rest of us - well, we have to be happy with sneak peeks shared on social media by guests.

5.Man gifts yoghurt seller R27 000 as repayment for his kind deed

Oftentimes people think it is the rich and powerful in society who are supposed to be giving and support the poor are financially unstable.

The tables have turned in this case as a yoghurt seller - who has all his adult life selling yoghurt - had been a kind man to people, especially kids.

We sighted a post shared by a Facebook user by name Bra Sammy of a man who has been gifted by a kid he showed kindness to years ago.
