Domain has cloudflare nameservers but cloudflare still says to change nameservers

I have a domain registered at 101Domains called mercy.ngo

Using the WHOIS link https://lookup.icann.org/en, I was able to verify that the Cloudflare nameservers are now recognized by the tool. To be fair, It has only been about 6 hours, so I have not yet waited for the full 24 hours yet. But why would the tool be able to see the new nameservers and not Cloudflare? My worry is waiting the 24 hours only to find out I missed something.

Both the Whois and the DNS both show a mix of your old nameservers and your new Cloudflare nameservers. Only the two Cloudflare nameservers should be configured with your Registrar.

% whois mercy.ngo
Name Server: kallie.ns.cloudflare.com
Name Server: ns1.101domain.com
Name Server: ns2.101domain.com
Name Server: phil.ns.cloudflare.com
% dig ns mercy.ngo @b0.nic.ngo

mercy.ngo. 3600 IN NS ns1.101domain.com.
mercy.ngo. 3600 IN NS phil.ns.cloudflare.com.
mercy.ngo. 3600 IN NS kallie.ns.cloudflare.com.
mercy.ngo. 3600 IN NS ns2.101domain.com.

Ohhh Gotcha. I didn’t realize I’d have to switch out the old ones because the original graphic didn’t list any to remove. I very much appreciate the response Michael!
