Bheki Mkhwane Pastor Mdletshe

Popular SABC1 actor Bheki Mkhwane, who plays Pastor Mdletshe on drama series Uzalo, has quit the telenovela because of “unprofessional behaviour” by some members and a refusal to raise his pay.

Mkhwane, who is known for being a very committed, disciplined actor, told Daily Sun on Thursday that he could not take the amateurish personalities of some of the cast members.

“I’m hurt to leave the show but I couldn’t deal with amateur actors who know nothing about acting,” the legendary actor told the daily.

Cassper sides with Zinhle dumping AKA in diss track: ‘its nearly impossible to raise two kids’

cassper nyovest

A month since AKA dropped ‘Composure’ hip hop fans have been wondering where Cassper’s response to the lyrically strong track is – the Maftown rapper has since responded with ‘Dust to Dust.’

In the emotionally charged track, Cassper Nyovest spares no expense as he goes on a personal attack against his nemesis, AKA.

The jam already has over 22,000 listens and has been shared just as many times on various social networks. In it, Cassper puts AKA on blast for being on cocaine and getting kicked out of his ex, DJ Zinhle’s Bryanston house which he claimed to own. But it doesn’t end there for Cassper as he slams AKA for not owning his music and having to ask his manager for his share of earnings.

The award winning rapper goes on to mock the former Entity member for taking deals he turned down, namely the latest Hunters Dry advert. Cassper claims he was approached first and declined because he was only offered R1 million while AKA took it on for R450,000.

Some lines from from Dust to Dust:

  • Oh you mad they didn’t show you love like they did Cass? Maybe that’s because you own none of your music even your diss track
  • I’m filling up the Dome in a few bra, are you kidding me, you opening up for Jason Derulo?
  • Zinhle left you in public and I don’t blame you sis, they say its nearly impossible to raise two kids
  • You said this is what you wanted but its hot now, you about to get schooled by a dropout!
  • Let’s tell the people whats what, lets tell them how the drugs got you f**** up
  • You said you broke up with your girl because of your album but you lying coz Bonang got you starstruck
  • Let’s tell them how JR wrote Congratulate, what do you know about ‘Vula Boot’ you only wrote three bars

Response to the track has been mixed with some applauding Cassper’s courage to challenge AKA’s acclaimed Composure. Others were not impressed by how Cassper opted to get personal instead of focusing on his career.

Trevor Noah compares Donald Trump to Jacob Zuma on ‘The Daily Show’

Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah is still settling in to his seat at ‘The Daily Show’ but has already fired shots at South African president, Jacob Zuma.

On the episode that aired in the US on Thursday night Noah compared the American real estate tycoon and leading Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, to the controversial Zuma.

“For me, as an African, there’s just something familiar about Trump that makes me feel at home,” Noah said.

The funnyman then aired footage of Trump criticising Mexican immigrants which he followed up with a clip of Zuma saying that some of the immigrants in SA are criminals.

“That’s light xenophobia with just a dash of diplomacy – which is also the title of Paula Deen’s new book,” he added.

There aren’t currently any online clips available of the episode but South Africans can catch Zuma’s “debut” on The Daily Show on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) on Friday night at 21:00.

This isn’t the first time Noah has made fun of Zuma. In his stand-up show Crazy Normal he also poked fun at Mzansi’s Number One.

Kaya FM presents Zonke live at The Bassline

Zonke Kaya FM

Afro-Soul Superstar ZONKE is making a welcome return to the South African music scene, and also to The Bassline stage. Friday 10th October will be the third show for the Kaya FM Presents [email protected] Bassline series with Zonke Dikana headlining; music fans are in for a rare treat!

The graceful songbird is currently riding high with the recent release of her brand new album Work Of Heart. This superb album is already topping the charts and drawing rave reviews across the board as well as holding a place at #1 on the iTunes R&B chart.

The multiple award-winning, platinum-selling Zonke is known for her sublime and powerful live performances. She is also a sought-after songwriter and producer, and she produced Work Of Heart.

Hailing originally from Port Elizabeth, she now calls Johannesburg home. It took Zonke some time to find her voice and to crack through the tough Jo’burg music scene, and her breakthrough 2011 album Ina Ethe saw her reach the pinnacle after a decade of struggles. She followed that up with a successful live album entitled Give and Take – Live, which went Platinum.

Then, just as Zonke was finally ready to start work on another album, her sister and fellow artist Lulu Dikana was struck down with a respiratory ailment and passed away in December 2014. For Zonke, rediscovering her inspiration after such a blow took months, but early in 2015, her muse started to return. “Changes make you stronger,” Zonke says. “No matter what happens, I don’t have it in me to lie down and give up. There is always a way. For me, music is that way. Music is goodness.” The track Meet Me In My Dreams is the centrepiece of the new album, and a fitting musical tribute to Lulu.

What is not in dispute is the strength and resilience of this African music superstar, she has risen above pain and hardship more times than she cares to remember, always emerging better, stronger, a more talented, more spectacular version of herself.

Support for Zonke will be provided by the multi award winning BERITA. This talented young singer/songwriter/guitarist hails originally from Zimbabwe, but has been making a name for herself locally over the past few years, especially after taking home the Best African Album at the 12th Metro Awards and SAMRO Songwriter of the Year Award in 2015.

The previous two Kaya Presents [email protected] Bassline shows have already seen sensational performances by Thandiswa Mazwai, Zamajobe, Maleh, Thiwe and Afro’traction.

Zonke now carries this Afropolitan music torch proudly forward.

Mzansi’s Finest releases new single, Nightlife

Mzansi’s Finest

Mzansi’s Finest is bursting into the scene again with his second official single called “Nightlife” featuring Jazz and neo-soul crooner Tebogo Moloto from Jazzworx.

Nightlife follows Mzansi’s Finest’s release of his first official single “Top Shayela” featuring rap queen Nadia Nakai of Amantombazane (Remix) fame and Best R&B SAMA nominated singer Tamarsha Khanyile earlier this year. Top Shayela was picked up by 30 radio stations across the country and has proved to be a great build up to Nightlife.

Listen to Nightlife feat. Tebogo Moloto here: http://soundcloud.com/mzansis-finest/nightlife-feat-tebogo-moloto

Purchase Nightlife feat. Tebogo Moloto on iTunes here: https://itun.es/za/lRwg9

When asked about the track, Mzansi’s Finest shares: “Nightlife is a song about breaking loose from the hustle and bustle of corporate life and escaping into the nightlife. The musical inspiration came from 90’s house and kwaito with a futuristic and modern twist to the sound. The lyrics however were mostly inspired by a gig I had during New Year where it rained and people still remained at the event despite the downpour.”

Listen out for Mzansi’s Finest Nightlife featuring Tebogo Moloto on a radio station near you!
