Azania Mosaka defends her daughter

AZANIA MOSAKA daughter

The daughter of influential radio personality, Azania Mosaka, Shamiso, couldn’t have imagined how a weekend she had long been waiting for could turn out so dramatically.

In a series of tweets during last night’s Migos Culture Tour concert, Shamiso shared some private information which has now gone viral, sparking controversy.

Migos was performing at The Dome in Johannesburg last night.

According to the tweets, it seems as though Migos member, Quavo, made an advance on Shamiso, even ”tapping” and asking her to come to his private section.

“Quavo just tapped me and asked me to go to his section. I just died. DIED,” Shamiso in the first tweet.

“Quavo just fed us alcohol, even if it was stroh, I’d take it,” the second tweet went.

As the dramatic reactions on Twitter began to mount, Shamiso did not let up, she continued.

“Quavo and Take Off have big d*cks and Offset [has] medium,” she tweeted.

She followed this up with an image of a man and woman in bed, fueling further speculations. The tweets have since been deleted and Shamiso’s account is now a private account.

Azania has also taken to Twitter to defend her daughter against what she calls “cyber bullying”.

Twitter has been dragging Shamiso all day long, referring to her as “stocko”, a term used to refer to girls who are hired to entertain men at events in Jozi.

“I’ve always been very careful to let my daughter fight her own battles and learn her own lessons in life. But after seeing what has transpired this morning, I am compelled to give my view,” she started.

“I’m disappointed by how she posted about the experience. I’ve always warned her about the dangers of social media. I’ve spoken to her about last night and I believe her version of events. And a stand behind her as a mother and woman,” said Azania.

Tumisho Masha expected appear in court in November

Tumisho Masha appear in court

Actor Tumisho Masha will appear in court next month on assault charges. The actor’s estranged wife first laid charges against him back in 2016 but they were later withdrawn. Now the National Prosecuting Authority has confirmed that the charges have been reinstated.

“Tumisho Masha will appear in court on November 7 at the Randburg Magistrates Court. He’s been charged with assault and malicious intent to property (MIP),” said National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Phindile Louw in a phone call with Times Live.

In response to the new charges, Tumisho told TshisaLIVE that the law needs to take its course.

“Men need to realize that being bitter and looking to retaliate is not the way to respond to an abuse accusation. We need to trust the law. I might find myself in a situation where I am representing all the men that have been accused and are innocent. The law will determine that, but if that’s the case, then it’s also okay,” he said.

Pulane Lyanah Lenkoe Opens Up about abusive boyfriend

Pulane Lyanah Lenkoe

The socialite and video sensation Pulane Lyanah Lenkoe has come out to reveal that she was involved in an abusive relationship. The boyfriend did not only emotionally abused her but physically abused her as well.

“Accident that’s how badly injured I was, the first time he beat me (I wish I had kept the pics, but he convinced me to delete them in order for us to move on, after he told me he will never allow himself to touch me again, blamed it on stress and insecurities, so i forgave him), funny thing is that i always considered myself to be very strong, i guess we all have our weaknesses, i allowed this man who promised to love, protect and make me feel safe to do this to me over and over and over and over again, and each time he would swore, ” nka se tlhole ke go toucher, i promise my love” and soon as he said that it’s like i would be hypnotized or something cause the only person i felt i needed it would be the same person who was causing me pain.”

Pulane abused

“The one thing that i realize now that I’ve left that relationship is that not only do these men inflict physical pain but they will also cause emotional abuse, which is far more damaging, though i acted strong in front of the world it got to a point where i started believing the things he told me, and felt had nowhere else to go but to stay with him, till 6 weeks later after this incident took place and the passing of Karabo Mokoena(May her soul RIP❤️) occurred and that was an eye opener for me,I honestly believe if it wasn’t for the unfortunate passing of Karabo i would still be in his arms till this day, i then realized that if I didn’t leave this would also be a destiny of mine.” – Pulane said.

“Even after this incident, when I tried to leave him then he begged me to stay and said he was getting professional help, i wanted to believe him but in my heart i knew the relationship was far too gone to be saved, there was nothing left to be saved, every time he hit me, as much as I thought I needed him, i didn’t it was just fear of starting over without him, shame, and all of those negative thoughts occupying my head but the actual fact is he killed every love emotion I ever felt for him.”

Pulane further added that there’s nothing worse than praying for someone or try to help someone who doesn’t see anything wrong with their actions. All you can do is pray for them from a distance and she does this in hope that this will find another woman like herself who thinks this behavior.
