First things first, we have decided to give you a temporary fix while the original site is being sorted. Apologies bahlali but at least for now you’ll be able to access the site via desktop as well. 🙂
Now let’s move on to our dramatic and action packed coWntry. So the reshuffling of ministers is still trending, a lot of people are unhappy especially where the minister of finance is concerned. The rand has been holding on to dear life since then and it’s really messing up everything.
To be honest, I was happy with Mr Gigabyte kwi Home Affairs, I think he has done a fantastic job there. Among other good things, it now takes a few days for one’s passport/ID to come out, and we don’t wait forever at Home Affairs like we used to. Even when you are there, there is a proper system that is followed that makes everything flow smoothly. I for one, salute Malusi Gigaba for that. Let’s just give him a chance and let’s see what he will do kwi finance. We have been through worse, and right now I think we only have ONE problem, the minute that ONE problem is out of the way, we will be ok or should I say better. Opposition parties say they will not stop their mission because they are doing it for ‘the people’ so let’s wait and see.
And then there was the postponing of Uncle Kathy’s memorial service. I don’t know what to say. We live in a sad world shem. Yhuuuuuu!
Lol, there is nothing that involves Penny Penny that doesn’t make me laugh. I really can’t take him serious. Don’t get me wrong, I have huge respect for him and the day I meet I will probably laugh my lungs out in front of him and explain later. To me everything he is just a funny person.
Anyway, Sunday papers report that Penny Penny almost moered a station manager of Munghana Lonene FM. Bathi Papa Penny was booked to perform at an awards ceremony the weekend before but when he arrived at the venue, security refused to let his band in because they were not accredited and that made him angry. Sunday Sun says things got so messy that day that he threatened to hit Arthur Mafokate for trying to ‘bulldoze his way into performing before his scheduled’. Papa Penny denies the allegations. LMAO
Still on Arthur Mafokate, it is said that he has decided to hang up his music tools and retire. His 999 artists have been handed clearance letters so they can sign with other record labels. One of his artists Cici has moved back to Durban and is living with her sister. It’s a tough world out there. People seem to be worried about Cici, I am worried about Chomee. It’s late for her!
I had a ‘Hayi maan’ moment when I read a story about comedian Skhumba and Bonang Matheba. According to Sunday Sun, Skhumba was supposed to be interviewed on The Front Row but when he got there ‘Bonang felt he wasn’t good enough and demanded someone better’ so the interview never happened. Skhumba is said to have called his manager while he was still at the station but didn’t give reasons why the interview was cancelled. Bathi ‘It’s unclear why Skhumba was turned down. Maybe he once made a joke about Bonang.’ If this is true, I just wanna know how these interviews are set up and by who? Don’t the DJs get told way before who their guests will be so they can prepare? Skhumba showing up for an interview and being turned away is kinda weird. Why didn’t they call him to cancel the interview ke instead of him having to waste time going there for nothing? I am so lost.
Tbo Touch seems to be winning you guys. Who would have thought he was gonna see his dream through after his dramatic Metro FM exit? I came across a video of him at his event saying he is on a mission to poach all Metro’s good presenters until they give him his last show. Athi he is still upset that soon after he handed over his resignation letter he was refused a chance to bid his listeners farewell. Hehehehehe, Touch is dangerous hey. Look at his line up? Wow!!
DJ Fresh has left 5FM to do Metro FM’s Breakfast Show. Fresh takes over from Glen Lewis who has moved to Touch Central. Unathi Msengana has also left Metro FM and she announced it on social media on Friday. Jah neh!!! On the other hand, Zama Ngcobo continues to annoy Ukhozi FM listeners waya waya and it seems nobody’s been listening. The latest is that she allegedly said; ‘Gospel music is the music for those who live in poverty.’ TJO!!!
Guys, I am a huge fan of love and I am one of those that were happy when DJ Zinhle found her prince. But Sunday World has crashed me with their report on Brendon Naidoo. According to the paper, the handsome Mr Bond has been scamming people, of millions and millions of rands in the name of forex trade. People invested their savings through him and he would send bank statements and they thought all was legit only to find out that the bank statements were fake. I am shattered beyond words and I hope my Zinhle hasn’t been financially played too. This is a mess. Brendon seems to be in the papers for the wrong reasons, 1st it was that lady claiming he played her heart and now this? I hope there is no operation mess up Mr and Mrs Bond campaign out there. Ok, I don’t know how far true all this is but the way things is going I don’t know. *Coolio voice*
Sunday World is clearly playing guess games with the people this time. They have a story about a top Jazz Artist who for 4years has been separated from his wife of 14years. They have no children together. The wife is now based in the USA, and is said to be jobless. The court has ordered the Jazz muso to pay $2800 spousal maintenance a month. He is supposed to pay her this until she remarries or dies. This amount will rise by 5% every year. Akumnandi!! Forget everything, I am just wondering who the Jazz muso is? No names were mentioned for legal reasons I assume, but SW’s clues didn’t help me either. Bathi the man was previously married to a well-known singer. *scratches head*
What else has been going on? It’s a new month….Let’s catch up!!
