Distruction Boyz accused of stealing Omunye

Distruction Boyz stole Omunye

Durban’s popular gqom duo, the Distruction Boyz have been accused of stealing Omunye track. The Distruction Boyz duo consists of Thobani “Que” Mgobhozi and Zipho “GoldMax” Mthembu.

According to Zalebs, this all started as a rumour that Distruction Boyz’s summer smash ‘Omunye’ sounded too similar to DJ Lag’s own composition called ‘Trip to New York’.

A forensic copyright investigation has reportedly found that the tempo, key signature and instrumentation on sensational gqom hit Omunye is similar to another song that had dropped three months before Distruction Boyz released their version, City Press reports.

The Distruction Boyz, however, deny the theft. Instead, the link between Omunye and Trip to New York can be found in the Cape Town producer the Distruction Boyz say they bought the song from, DJ Mphyd.

I’m not buying the robbery story – Chicco Twala

Legendary music producer, Sello Chicco Twala

Music producer Sello Chicco Twala has now revealed that he does not believe the murder of Bafana Bafana captain and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiza was a botched robbery.

According to Daily Sun, Twala has called on all the six people who were present when the alleged robbery took place to come clean.

Speaking to Power FM, Chicco said “The six people should just tell the truth. Someone pulled the trigger. Someone killed Senzo on that night and these people know, why are they quiet?

“I am not buying the story about the robbery, personally. Someone knows who killed Senzo, including my son. They must all be arrested if needs be. They must leave me out of this nonsense”.

The six people he is referring to include his son Longwe Twala and his two friends, Kelly Khumalo, her mother and sister Zandi Khumalo.

This is after allegations that Chicco’s gun was used in the murder as it was missing during the time of the incident.

Rumors on social media suggest Longwe used his father’s gun to kill Senzo Meyiwa.

Chicco was not happy about the way he is being portrayed on social media.

“Is it a crime for me to be called and rushed to hospital? South Africans are blaming me, there’s so much insults about me,” he said.

He is determined to clear his name and he promise to see to it that this case is solved quickly.

“I am going to push Fikile Mbalula to make arrests. I am going to make lots of noise because I want my name cleared. If it’s my son, Mbalula must arrest and charge him and put him in jail” he said in closure.

Thabo Mkhabela aka Leshole Skeem Saam

Actor Thabo Mkhabela has impressed South Africa with his role as Leshole Mabitsela on popular SABC1 soapie Skeem Saam.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Thabo told the publication that when people meet him on the street they think he is Leshole. They treat him as if he is Leshole.

“People think they own me. They tell me to jump but forget that I am a real person. I don’t mind it much because I love the role.” –  Thabo Mkhabela said.

He recounted a time when his character pretended to be someone else online, a practice called catfishing, and he was reprimanded for it by fans in real life.

“They would come to me and shout at me. They would tell me how to behave and tell me what I was doing wasn’t right. They don’t mean harm, they are just excited. But something needs to be done to educate people. They need to know what happens on TV isn’t real.”

Thabo believed the role has set him apart and made sure he will always be remembered in TV folklore for his character in the same way Connie Ferguson will always be known as Karabo Moroka.

He further added “I don’t like thinking about the future too much but I think I will always be Leshole. The character will stick with me for the rest of my life, long after I have left Skeem Saam. Something like Karabo. People just like him so much.”

Black Panther soundtrack Album Babes Wodumo

Black Twitter was a buzz upon hearing that Babes Wodumo would be featured on the international Black Panther Soundtrack album, alongside fellow household name Sjava.

It appears all for the wrong reasons though, as shortly after hearing Babes Wodumo’ song on the album, which had Mampitsha’s voice at the end, tweeps concluded that Babes Wodumo was actually a group.

The Gqom queen has been accused of not being unable to do a song without Mampintsha, who has been featured on almost every hit song she has released.

Wodumo’s fans were looking forward to hearing her without her manager Mampintsha after seeing a track listing for the album late last week.

Twitter fans were not impressed and flooded social media with questions asking how did this happen!

The album is the soundtrack album for the Marvel Studios film Black Panther, it was curated and produced by Kendrick Lamar and was released by Interscope Records on February 9, 2018.
