Twerking should be elevated to a new sporting code after recently entering the Oxford dictionary.

Young girls gyrated and twerked the night away, and Soweto came to a standstill when Club 808 celebrated its third birthday in fine township style at the Diepkloof Zone 6 venue on Saturday.

The smoke from hubbly-bubblies transformed the club into a smoking fest, while the dance floor was filled with youthful energy, music, twerking – and more twerking.

There was so much hip movement it would shame even Miley Cyrus, the child star infamous for her twerk at the MTV Music Awards recently. In fact, Cyrus could learn a thing or two about the dance from these local party girls.

At the entrance, the queues were awfully long, with people eager to get into the club DJ ZanD calls “one of the few real clubs in Johannesburg”.

The Club 808 trio of Thando Thabethe and Mo Flava as emcees, and DJ ZanD made sure their audience were kept warm with their performances on stage.

ZanD kicked things off with a hip-hop set that got the crowd eating out of his hand.

Mo Flava commented that the birthday bash was by far the best in the show’s three-year history. With a line-up that included Club 808’s very own DJs –

Mo Flava, ZanD, Spectacular, Naves, Black Motion and Reason – it was always going to be an epic evening.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana No 1 Brian Baloyi and friends spent the whole night in the VIP area upstairs, while Mandoza, he of Nkalakatha fame, made a brief stop.

The Metro FM’s pre-party duo of Spectacular and Naves raised temperatures by calling four girls on to the stage and so the twerking competition began.

Young Dumi Masilela, who plays Sifiso on Rhythm City, was there and so was sassy Amo Chidi, who plays Reneilwe on the soapie.

A star performance by Black Motion, with their enchanting percussion-driven performance, and Reason’s hip-hopoffering kept the crowd begging for more.

DJ Kent screeched the party to an abrupt halt at 3.10am. Sadly, the crowd was not forewarned of the impending end to the partying that would have lasted until 7am if the crowd had their way.
