They are the ones who keeps me going, through thick and thin. They inspire me each and every day, as much as I hope to inspire them. For me, it’s important to recognise that no one is an island, and that making it to the top means so much more when you have the support of those who have been there from day one,” says Bonang Matheba.

What attracted you to a show like Tropika Smoooth Fan?

What I really like about the Tropika Smoooth Fan concept is that the show is for the fans, by the fans. My brand isn’t what it is today because of just talent alone but also because of the people who support it. I always ask what’s the use of acting if no one switches on the TV. My fans play a very big role and element of my brand growth and me as a person and this is a way to give them a bigger glimpse into me as a person.

“This Is Amazing @SobetwaYanga ipeni lami li ready sengiyozwa ngawe and good luck for the show whether you win or loose (sic)” – he tweeted.

Yanga’s rendition of Sjava’s song was just as emotionally charged as the original. She gives tribute to women who were done wrong at the hands of the men that they trusted. These include Sarah Baartman, Reeva Steenkamp, Karabo Mokoena and Cheryl Zondi.

According to Zkhiphani, Impilo is taken off his album Isina Muva, the gold version. It is one of the 3 songs added to celebrate the album reaching gold status. The song brings awareness to the recent surge of femicide in the country over the last few years. Sjava whose real name is Jabulani Hadebe is pleading with the men in society to protect our women and take their cries of help into account.
