Congratulations are in order for Bontle Modiselle, musician Alfa Kat, and World of Dance coordinator Quintus Jansen after they received a certificate for the largest amapiano dance from Guinness World Records. The three broke the record for the largest amapiano dance record on e.tv’s Stumbo Record Breakers show with 250 people dancing in synchronization to Alfa Kat’s latest amapiano song “Shaya Lento” at the Hector Peterson Memorial in Soweto.

The show flew in an adjudicator, Sofia Greenacre, from the Guinness Book of Records London. Media personality Bontle who choreographed the dance moves took to her Instagram to mark the milestone. “We’re official Guinness World Record holders for the largest amapiano dance, choreographed by yours truly, performed, synchronized at the same time. Achieved on Stumbo Record Breakers. Wow!”

Congratulations to the new record holders.

Cardi B opened up about Offset’s grief following the death of his cousin TakeOff and how she is struggling to make her husband feel happy. In a since-deleted Twitter voice note, the Bronx rapper revealed what the grieving process has been like in her household since the Migos artist (born Kirsnick Khari Ball) was shot and killed on November 1 at a private party in Houston.

“We living our life normally, but deep down inside our hearts have been so heavy,” Cardi said, according to reports. “I feel like if I talk about the incident so desensitized, I feel like if we talk about how we really feel or what motherf—kers really been going through, y’all will start saying, ‘Oh, sympathy.’ And we don’t want no sympathy. We ain’t no charity case. But no lie, I have been feeling so hopeless trying to make my husband happy.”

The 30-year-old also shared that she is not in the mood to be “playing around” with fans on the internet who are chasing the “clout” when it comes to speaking about the Fallen rapper’s demise and that the grieving process is still fresh for her and her family. Megan Thee Stallion Forbes

5. Qatar sets unfortunate World Cup record following another defeat to the Netherlands

Qatar has exited the World Cup following three straight defeats, becoming the first host nation to ever leave their own competition pointless. Defeats against Ecuador, Senegal, and the Netherlands on the final day leave Qatar bottom of Group A having conceded seven goals — the outright most ever by a host nation in the same group round in the tournament.

While it was widely expected that Qatar would finish bottom of the group, not many people would have said they would have done so without getting a point on the board. Ranked 50th in the world, a place above Saudi Arabia which have a chance of progressing to the knockout stages due to the win over Argentina, it seems the World Cup was a level above the players. The Qatar team will likely have inspired those around the region to become footballers, hoping one day to represent their country at a World Cup.
