Aunty Merle’s final week in Joburg

Aunty Merle johannesburg

“The sheer delight of watching a Joburg audience react to Aunty Merle’s acidic humour and antics emphasises the impact of this character.” – Peter Feldman, Artslink.

ALSO READ: Marc Lottering’s Most Beloved Alter Ego Comes To Joburg For The First Time

With rave reviews and standing ovations night after night, Aunty Merle – Marc Lottering’s most beloved alter ego – has sashayed into the hearts of ‘Joburgers’ since the start of the run of Aunty Merle The Musical which opened at the Joburg Theatre on 1st of February. The hit musical will see its final shows this week as the curtain closes this coming Sunday, 24th of February.

“I’ve had many hours to meditate and ponder on my trip, in quiet candlelight, thanks to Eskom,” comments Aunty Merle on how she has found her time in Joburg. “My trip to Johannesburg has been unforgettable! Joburg is definitely very different to Cape Town. Everything up here just seems to move faster. I will miss Joburg. It really is like being overseas. Without a VISA!”

High drama unfolds as Merle’s daughter, Abigail, announces her engagement to her boyfriend, Alan. As Merle puts it: “He’s a good looking white chap!” But it’s never smooth-sailing in the world of musicals when Abigail’s twisted and corrupt ex, Denver Paulse – who holds a dodgy top job with the SABC – is determined to get her back – and if not, threatens to reveal a very dark secret which is bound to tear the lovers apart.

Tickets are limited for the remaining shows and patrons can purchase their tickets via the Joburg Theatre website or via WebTickets.

“This show brings people together by merging music and comedy with South African flavour. The audience will leave feeling love and warmth, with a craving for lemon meringue. This is a must-see,” adds Marc Lottering.

Written by Marc Lottering and directed by Lara Foot, the musical comedy boasts a talented South African cast including Tracey-Lee Oliver as Abigail, Paul du Toit as Alan, Loukmaan Adams as Denver Paulse, with a stellar support cast including Royston Stoffels, Tankiso Mamabolo, Gina Shmukler, Adrian Galley, Carmen Maarman, Zandile Madliwa, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Anzio September and Crystal Finck – accompanied by a live 8-piece band. Twenty-two original songs, with lyrics by Marc Lottering and Tarryn Lamb; musical direction by Alistair Izobel and choreography by Grant Van Ster, have earned the cast thunderous standing ovations, three sell-out seasons in Cape Town and four Fleur de Cap nominations.

Wining & Dining with the Steins in the Valley

Charlie_Stein_Grant_Steins in the Valley

The Durbanville Wine Valley in the Western Cape, was a hive of activity recently with 12 of the wine farms in the area playing host to Jack and Charlie Stein, sons of award-winning UK celebrity chef and restaurateur Rick Stein. The Stein brothers were in South Africa shooting scenes for a 13-part TV series called Wine, Dine & Stein.

Produced by local outfit, Oxyg3n Media, the series has already been pre-sold to the UK, Denmark, Norway and Poland with more countries lining up to acquire the show once complete. It will also be seen in SA later this year on a yet-to-be announced channel on DStv.

Created by JAG Communications’ Grant Bushby and Janine Walker, Wine, Dine & Stein finds the Stein siblings spending a day on each of the 12 wine farms that make up the Durbanville Wine Valley, tasting their wines, sampling (and helping cook) their food and embarking on a series of dares and challenges.

Some of the more interesting activities the “boys” got up to – while not eating and drinking – included paragliding off Hamburger Hill at Meerendal, firing the Big Bertha cannon at Signal Gun, taking part in a wheelbarrow race at Klein Roosboom, rounding up cattle via quadbikes at Groot Phesantekraal and wakeboarding at the Hillcrest quarry.

In addition to the above-mentioned, the other wine farms visited included Altydgedacht, Canto, D’Aria, De Grendel, Diemersdal, Durbanville Hills and Nitida.

Like his father Rick, Jack Stein (38), is an accomplished chef and author and, apart from presenting TV series, also oversees the kitchens of all 14 Rick Stein restaurants. Brother Charlie (34) works for The Vintner wine merchants in London and also helps taste and select all the wine for the family’s restaurants.

Each 24-minute episode of Wine, Dine & Stein will feature one of the 12 wine farms in the Durbanville Wine Valley, with the 13th episode covering other activities of interest in the area including a visit to the Durbanville Distillery to see how rum is made, speeding down the tracks at Cool Runnings, Africa’s first downhill tobogganing track and ending with a final lunch, where the Steins meet up with all their newly made friends at Giggling Gourmet Jenny Morris’ local eatery, Yumcious.
Says Jack Stein of his time in the Western Cape: “I had the most fun I’ve had in ages filming this series and I can’t say enough about the warmth, hospitality and generosity of the people we met, not to mention the amazing food we ate and the brilliant wines we drank.”

Adds Charlie: “What I loved most about filming the series was that each and every wine farm in the valley offers something different from the other. From the small boutique, but utterly charming Klein Roosboom, to the bigger estate that is Durbanville Hills – but which still manages to convey a feeling of family.

“The Durbanville Wine Valley’s proximity to Cape Town and to the beautiful beaches of Bloubergstrand is also a big plus.”

Wine, Dine & Stein is scheduled for broadcast in South Africa later this year.

DJ Cleo and former kwaito star Brickz

Local DJ and music producer DJ Cleo, found himself in hot water after he posted photos of himself together with convicted rapist and former kwaito star Brickz.

Taking to Twitter, DJ Cleo posted a collage of pictures with Brickz captioning it: “We all run our own races, he fell along the way….but the race is not over (sic).”

The social media post angered many South Africans including the “Wuz Dat” rapper Boity, who then asked DJ Cleo why he is “defending” a rapist.

The Goodbye hitmaker, did not appreciate Boity Thulo’s criticism very lightly. He immediately clapped back and say he he will not be bullied, he stands by his words. The DJ also dragged Nomzamo Mbatha who was recently criticized for taking a photo with Arthur Mafokate.

“Bakae bo @Boity to motivate our sisters in prisons? Bakae bo mrapper-Sangoma when bo @NomzamoMbatha take pics le bo Arthur…(I’m sorry to drag u into this Sisi Nomzamo). If only u @Boity were as #woke then as u r now, instead of trying to ridicule me (sic),” – DJ Cleo tweeted.

The DJ insisted that his initial tweet was misinterpreted but he “stand by his word”.

“My initial tweet was not about sympathising with a rapist, but supporting a brother and father who was convicted & now serving his sentence. I sympathize with all victims out there. But…I will not be bullied or told how and when to love a brother. I stand by my words (sic),” – Cleo wrote.

Cleo continued to say he has partnered with the correctional services and few other stakeholders to contribute to the positive rehabilitation of similar inmates. If that’s deemed as condoning and supporting criminals then so be it. I refuse to entertain any negative spin to my good deeds.

The video tells the poignant story of an android Katy Perry, who yearns to be human, as she attempts to make a genuine connection with Zedd.

“Katy and I have known each other for a while now and while on tour together in Australia last summer, we starting working on some music,” shares Zedd, “After we got off tour and with our musical value systems even more aligned we continued working together and that’s when 365 started to take shape. As it all came together, we knew we had something special. I love how Katy sounds on this record. I’m so excited to finally share this with our fans.”

Watch Zedd and Katy Perry 365 music video below:

“I was really excited for Zedd to join my WITNESS: The Tour last year, and in our down time, we started vibing on music, which led to this special song,” says Katy, “Happy to collaborate with such a talented and down-to-earth human being.”

“365” is Zedd’s first single of 2019. The release comes after a massive 2018, which included teaming up with Shawn Mendes for the “Lost In Japan” remix, “Happy Now” with Elley Duhé, and his monster smash “The Middle” with Maren Morris and Grey. Zedd earned his second #1 at Top 40 Radio and three GRAMMY nominations for “The Middle,” making him a five-time GRAMMY nominee in addition to his 2014 win for Best Dance Recording.

Last fall, Zedd teamed up with Shawn Mendes for a remix of “Lost In Japan” from Shawn’s latest album. The remix is the follow up to Zedd’s 2018 singles, “Happy Now” with Elley Duhé and his monster hit, “The Middle” with Maren Morris and Grey.  Zedd released “The Middle” in January 2018, which earned him his second #1 at Top 40 Radio. “The Middle” held the top spot at Top 40 Radio for seven weeks, was #1 at Hot AC Radio for five weeks, and spent 40 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Digitally, the song has amassed over 1 billion streams. In December, Zedd received three GRAMMY nominations for “The Middle,” including nominations for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Pop Duo or Group Performance. The three nominations make Zedd a five-time GRAMMY nominee.

In 2017, Zedd released “Stay” with Alessia Cara, which held the #1 spot at Top 40 radio for six consecutive weeks and earned Zedd his second GRAMMY nomination. In 2015, Zedd released True Colors, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Hayley Williams on platinum hit “Stay The Night,” which racked up more than 400 million streams, and Selena Gomez on platinum track “I Want You To Know,” which spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
