Jeopardy” Contestant Confuses Chaka Khan With Shaka Zulu

  • A contestant on Monday night’s Jeopardy! was thinking more about music than history.
  • Sarah Jett Rayburn’s $2,000 clue was, “Here, as on each September 24, Zulus celebrate the holiday that was named in honor of this warrior leader of the early 1800s.”
  • Rayburn buzzed in and replied, “Who is Chaka Khan?” As soon as she did it, she knew it was wrong. The right answer was Shaka Zulu.
  • Rayburn won the game but social media had fun with her incorrect answer. One person tweeted, “The Zulu Warrior Leader, Chaka Kahn…I can hear their war chants now: ‘Chaka Kahn. Chaka Kahn. Chaka Kahn let me rock you, let me rock you Chaka Kahn. Let me rock me rock ya, that’s all I wanna do.’”
