Arianna Stoko, The Girl Who Broke The Internet With The John Vuli Gate Song || The John Vuli Gate challenge is going viral across Mzansi after a group of girls shared a video of themselves dancing to the song. The girls were performing the butt-wiggling dance move to Mapara A Jazz’s amapiano stomper, John Vuli Gate. Due to the popularity of the video, the girls have become famous overnight, with many wondering who they are. With that said, iHarare has learned that one of the girls who calls herself Arianna Katt, has since opened social media accounts on which she interacts with some of her fans and followers.
According to iMzanzi Arianna, real name Tshegofatso Maepa, is a 19-year-old woman who comes from KwaMhlanga village. Arianna is the third born in her family and is reported to have said that she loves music and alcohol but only during weekends.
Arianna and her four friends shot to fame or infamy, as some would like to say when they made a thirty second Tik Tok video in which they were dancing to the John Vuli Gate song at a petrol station while holding bottles of Russian Bear Vodka.
In a post on social media, Arianna said that she is the Beyonce of her group. Writing on microblogging platform Twitter, Arianna said,
Me and the girls choose your stocko but just remember that i am the Beyonce of the group.
