Hope you had a great weekend guys. Let’s catch up on what has been happening.
The Taxi Rape incidents got me all worried, upset and disgusted at the world we live in shem. We are not safe at all. Can you imagine how many women have been through that ordeal and haven’t told a soul? This is heartbreaking honestly. Some of the women that have come forward have mentioned that even the cops chase them away when they go to report. SMH!!
Last night a lot of people tuned in to watch the crowning of Miss SA which took place in Sun City. Every year we complain about how the pageant has lost its mojo but we still watch and have a say.
The beautiful Demi Leigh Nel Peters was crowned Miss SA and she will represent Mzansi in the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants. Congrats to her.
As usual, when something ‘big’ is taking place, everyone has something to say. @ThickLeeyonce’s tweet caught my eye. As much as we want things to go our way, we need to remember that Pageants like Miss SA are about choosing someone to represent us kwi world stage. There are certain rules and a criteria that’s followed for such competitions. This applies to ALL countries and African countries are not an exception. If we ignore the criteria then we might as well kiss that world stage goodbye because they won’t even let us smell it. Yes, African women are said to be known for their curves but not all of us are like that. We are all different, if we have to get into who represents each and everyone of us as Africans we will argue till Jesus comes. Just because someone doesn’t have Sara Batman’s behind and huge hips doesn’t make them less African. If we are going to complain and create our own African ‘Ambassador’ then let’s not forget to strip them off that weave/wig and make sure they got their Bantu knots and Kinky Afros on lock. We can’t pick and choose what suits us and ignore the rest. Nah fam!!
What I can’t believe is that in 2017 we are still reading about Dingaan Thobela beating up women. According to Sunday World, Dingaan was kicked out of the house by his girlfriend after he allegedly moered her. Bathi he also took keys to her condo and is still refusing to give them back. Dingaan denied that he beat her up but the woman and her friends say otherwise. According to SW, Dingaan says the woman was cheating on her and now they have indeed broken up. Didn’t he divorce his wife a few years ago because of infidelity what what? Shame, he needs to seriously work on his trust issues before he can even think of getting into a relationship. Ayikho ke le.
Sunday Sun has a story about Pearl Thusi. The paper reports that Pearl and Terry Pheto were scheduled for a fashion shoot for Forbes Magazine but it had to be called off because Pearl caused a scene about eye lashes. LMAO!! Apparently they were all briefed way before the shoot that they must bring their own make up artists, it seems Pearl missed that brief. Terry went prepared with her make up artist Vuyo Varoyi but Pearl was there with her ‘entourage’ and no make up artist. She ended up asking Vuyo to step in which Terry didn’t mind but then Pearl got upset when Vuyo told her he only had one set of fake lashes and they were for Terry. SS goes on to say Terry was heard saying she didn’t know Pearl could be such a diva, and it was the first time she’s seen her act like that. “A third source claimed Terry kept on saying how well she knew Pearl – who lived with her at one stage , sleeping on the couch.” WOW!! Trust Sunday Sun to throw that in there. I wonder how true this whole story is because at the back of my head, I refuse to believe that those words came out of Terry’s mouth. But ke if it’s true that Pearl and her team caused a scene that led to the shoot being called off then it’s understandable, I’d be upset too and just lash out. If we were both briefed, I come prepared, you don’t and then cause a scene unnecessarily = wasting my time. IT’S ON!!
Love is in the air between Actress Nolly Meje and Actor Neo Ntlatleng. This is according to Sunday Sun. We love love ke apha. So we wish you guys well.
I didn’t read Ayanda’s story kwi Drum Magazine but I am assuming it’s a repeat of what widows go through in general. That life and challenges cycle. Uxolo, qina sisi kuzolunga.
I don’t know if you guys remember this tweet which was supposed to be a DM but ended up on the TL for the whole world to see. It was deleted but obviously not soon enough. Lol
This person was talking about Masechaba being fired and a lot of people didn’t believe it was for real.
Fast forward to March and Masechaba tweets that she has resigned from PowerFM? Mmmmmmh!! You see the key words in this situation are; ‘…..with immediate effect…….Wishing the station all of the best.’ *reserves comment*
I can’t keep up with the love and hate relationship between City Press and the ruling party mna shem. There’s always a statement being released clarifying or denying stuff. Haaai
*In other News* DJ Cleo and Brickz have kissed and made up and they are making magic in studio like they used to. We will never forget their beef where Brickz accused Cleo of all sorts of things including being gay. Then it was back and forth ‘disses’ and then complete silence.
10years later, this is what we have. What a time to be alive. I am so happy for them because these two are very good when it comes to giving us dance tracks. I have been missing ‘This is a DJ Cleo Production…..Ng’phethu Cleo…’. I have listened to their new track and I must say this reunion was long overdue! Siyabonga thina. With that said, Cleo you are a better person than I am shem. I am proud of you. GROWTH!!
Wishing you all the best for the week bahlali. What else has been going on? Let’s chat!!
