Watch Cassper Nyovest gets the land back in new video Ksazobalit

Cassper Nyovest Ksazobalit

South African recording artist and record producer Cassper Nyovest released a new music video for his latest single titled Ksazobalit on Friday.

In the music video, the 28-year-old rapper is wearing a farmer’s outfit and dancing among the fields. He also drives an old tractor around, much to the apparent distress of a big white farmer coming out of his farmhouse.

The music video has since received a lot of attention, in particular from the Economic Freedom Fighters for its portrayal of land reform.

Julius Malema

EFF leader Julius Malema took to Twitter to thank Cassper for portraying land expropriation without compensation.

“Thank you very much my brother @CassperNyovest for the powerful music video, the message is very clear that indeed when we get our land #ksazobalit. #WeAreReady #LandIsDignity (sic)” – Malema tweeted.

A cameo of Pearl Thusi on a horse also reveals that the apparent Twitter “fight” between Cassper and Pearl on Thursday was just a publicity stunt.

Watch Cassper Nyovest – Ksazobalit (Official Music Video) below:

Tumisho Masha found not guilty

Tumisho Masha found not guilty

Actor Tumisho Masha has been found not guilty of assaulting his estranged wife Zozibini Mtongana by the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

The actor issued a statement last week to celebrate his freedom. The case has been running for two years.

Masha’s wife stated in the affidavit that the Saints and Sinners actor had assaulted her and also damaged her phone in June 2016. The case was dropped in November 2016 but it was later reinstated in October 2017.

Tumisho said his wife had rejected his offer after he suggested that he will replace the damaged phone. Instead, the wife demanded money.

“In her judgement, the magistrate said that, in terms of the evidence, the complainant’s statement and the state’s witness did not corroborate each other,” reads Masha’s statement.

Skhumba imitates Papa Penny

Skhumba imitates Papa Penny

South African comedian, radio presenter and actor Skhumba Hlophe is without a doubt one of the most funniest comedians in Mzansi. Skhumba, who is best known for his role as Bheki Zulu in the SABC1 sitcom Thandeka’s Diary, has decided to imitate Papa Penny.

In a recent Instagram post the comedian is seen wearing a stocking and a ponytail similar to Papa Penny’s signature hairdo. Skhumba can also be seen with the ponytail in an orange outfit while on the set of SABC 1’s Thandeka’s Diary.

Back in 2016 the Kaya FM presenter found himself in hot water when he was seen in a video mocking female Wits University students on the shape of their breasts saying they were too droopy to be exposed publicly. An online petition was then launched demanding that the station remove the Skhumba from its line-up until he publicly apologised for body-shaming three protesters during #FeesMustFall protest.

Speaking to DRUM, the comedian admitted his humour does sometimes cross the line but says that’s the point.

“What is comedy without risks?” he said. “When you joke that Xhosa men are stingy and Gwede Mantashe has oversized suits and a funny voice, aren’t you crossing the line? If it’s a joke, it will cross the line.”

Trevor Noah named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people

Trevor Noah TIME Magazine

The Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah has been named as one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2018.

TIME magazine revealed its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world on Thursday. The list has been split into pioneers, artists, leaders, and icons.

The magazine paired guest contributors to write about each of the 100 people on the list.

‘Black Panther’ star Lupita Nyong’o was tasked with the job doing a write-up on our Trevor Noah and she wrote: “When I think of Trevor Noah, the first image I see is from his brilliant memoir, Born a Crime, of Trevor’s mother throwing him out of a moving vehicle while he’s asleep in order to save his life. Through other eyes, this could be remembered as traumatic and harrowing. Through Trevor’s it is bonding and hilarious, a testament to the love of someone who truly had to think on their feet.”

She further added that “a fantastic storyteller, he has always been a defier of rules, which he broke simply by being born in his native country. At The Daily Show, which he has truly globalised, Trevor seeks out comedians of colour in every possible venue, no matter how small.” Read the full insert here.

Among others chosen this year are Roger Federer, Tiffany Haddish, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez.

“TIME’s annual list of the world’s most influential people is a designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now. The TIME 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it,” wrote the magazine.

Last year the magazine named Trevor as one of its Next Generation Leaders in 2017. TIME magazine praised Noah for his impressive rise to fame and his work as host of The Daily Show.
