Black Twitter says Babes Wodumo must dump Mampintsha

Babes Wodumo and her manager Mampintsha

Black Twitter is not happy and they are telling Babes Wodumo to just dump Mampintsha after MTV European Music Awards blunder.

According to reports, sources close to Babes revealed that the record company expected the organisers to fund the trip, which was not the case.

Twitter didn’t take this as the record label’s fault. They think Mampintsha is holding queen of Gqom back.

Wodumo has been nominated in the Best African category, together with rapper Nasty C, Nigeria’s Wizkid and Davido, Angola’s C4 Pedro and Kenya’s Nyashinski.

This is not the first time Babes misses out on big international awards. In June she was unable to attend the BET Awards in the US where she had been nominated for an award. However, her team failed to sort out her travel visa documents in time and she missed out.

Babes Wodumo Miss MTV European Music Awards

Babes Wodumo MTV

Babes Wodumo will not attend the MTV European Music Awards in London this Sunday, the Tribune can reveal.

Instead of boarding a flight to London’s Heathrow International Airport, the Sunday Tribune can reveal that the bubbly Babes Wodumo was instead promoting the West Ink Banger Vol. 1 album at Gagasi FM’s Kings of the Drive show with Sphectacula and Naves on Friday Afternoon. She was with her beau-cum-manager, Mampintsha. West Ink Records has already informed MTV that she will not be going.

Babes Wodumo is no stranger to bungling when international awards shows come calling, in June, the self-proclaimed Queen of Gqom missed out on the BET Awards in the US where she had been nominated for an award after her team failed to sort out her travel visa documents in time.



According to IOL, sources close to the Gqom Queen told the Sunday Tribune this week that the record company had been expecting the organisers to fund the trip, which was not the case. The Sunday Tribune understands however, that Babes Wodumo’s visa was sorted in time this time around, but sources have revealed that they expected the organisers to pay for travel and accommodation costs.

Babes Wodumo is in contention for an MTV European Music Award in the Best African category, along side local rapper Nasty C, Nigeria’s Wizkid and Davido, Angola’s C4 Pedro and Kenya’s Nyashinski.

“Our communication to all artists has always been equal and clear that VIMN Africa does not fly nominees to the MTV EMAs. We have confirmed this with all the nominees. As it relates to talent, we only fly performers to the MTV EMAs awards show. We had received written confirmation from Babes Wodumo’s team that they elected to not attend the MTV EMAs.” said Okosi on Friday.

AKA and Cassper hug

Rapper AKA has tweeted and ask Cassper to feature him at #FillUpFNB concert .

AKA started by saying “I wanna do fill up FNB with Tsibip. It’s time we put this sh*t to bed. It’s 2017 guys…”

However, Mr Nyovest appeared to dismiss the gesture, shooting back at Supa Mega with a stinging “LOL” and a follow up tweet which said “just buy a ticket broer”. AKA had imagined the event would be like Kanye West and Jay-Z’s collaboration that brought the critically acclaimed Watch The Throne.

Skolopad

Socialite and professional nurse Skolopad, real name Nonhlanhla Qwabe, has been trending again. This time she rocked a wors dress at the 2017 Feather Awards pink carpet.

Skolopad walked in covered in a few pieces of boerewors, carrying a charcoal bag as her purse. We thought she would rock her favourite yellow dress just like at the South African Music Awards, but she took her game to the next level.

Cape Town Jazz musican Jonathan Rubain returns to The Baxter Theatre

Jonathan Rubain – Cape Jazz Poster web (1)

The Mother City audiences are in for a treat this festive season as Cape Town-born jazz musician, Jonathan Rubain, is back with his latest musical show, Cape Jazz Is Lekke!

The Hanover Park-born-and-bred Rubain, 33, is set to pay tribute and celebrate the SA legends of the jazz industry, including the likes of Robbie Jansen, Abdullah Ibrahim, Basil Manenberg Coetzee and Zayn Adam.

The show, which is set to enjoy a five-week run at The Baxter Concert Hall at The Baxter Theatre this festive season, will celebrate “the rich culture in local jazz”.

“Cape Jazz has a unique sound which can only be heard in Cape Town and are best played by musicians from the city. It is a festive season show which will be full of energetic performances and songs that will uplift people’s spirits,” says Rubain.

Cape Jazz Is Lekker! is production number eight for Jonathan Rubain as a show producer – his biggest stage production to date.

“I could not believe when I was given the opportunity to do the festive run at The Baxter. I grabbed it with both hands. The opportunity is bigger than myself, but coming from the Cape Flats, I have learnt not to be scared of anything – no matter how big it might seem,” he admits.

Rubain has been playing music from an early age, despite growing up in a community infected with gangsterism and drugs. He attributes music to keeping him off the streets in Hanover Park.

Audiences can expect to hear new music from Rubain throughout the show, and they too can can experience legendary songs that will pay tribute to the legends who have inspired Rubain’s career.

“The show will be filled with Ghoema songs and music that will make people happy. We will also cover a few of the biggest Cape Jazz songs.”

Cape Jazz Is Lekker! is set to dazzle Cape Town audiences with a host of top local talent on the evening.

Joining Rubain on stage for a mesmerizing concert of song and dance are: Kyle Shepherd (piano); Cape Jazz legend, Hilton Schilder; multi-talented musician and guitar specialist, Dave Ledbetter; guitarist, Allou April as well as vocalist Candice Thornton. All the artists will be accompanied by a backing band under the direction of Spencer Kennedy.

Adds Jonathan Rubain: “People can expect a Lekke! Show, including energetic performances and a full production which will have audiences coming back for more. This show is for Capetonians to appreciate our own music and sound again and for tourists who wants to get the vibe of the city.”

Tickets for this much-anticipated show can be purchased via Computicket at either www.computicket.com or via Checkers and Shoprite retail stores, countrywide, and are priced at R100 – R250 each.

Is Cassper Nyovest really broke or misunderstood?

#FillUpFnbStadium Cassper Nyovest

According to some South African celebrity news sites, Cassper Nyovest has revealed that he is “broke as hell” and looking to sell his cars to try help finance #FillUpFNBStadium show since he doesn’t have sponsors.

Speaking on Metro FM, Cassper said the show would cost him R15 million to put together and claimed two of his staff members had yet to be paid because of his financial struggles.

“I’m broke as hell. I almost sold my cars. I am flat broke. I have two employees that haven’t been paid this month. This is the first time since (Fill Up) The Dome that I don’t have money, I am in debt,” he said.

According to TshisaLIVE, Mr Nyovest claimed that his financial situation had led him to looking for someone to buy his luxury cars, and he was not scared of “losing everything”.

“I was about to sell my cars. And this dude that was going to buy my cars, something happened in his family so he couldn’t buy the cars. So, I’m looking for someone to buy my cars. I am all the way in because for me it is not about making money. It’s about inspiring people and going all in. I don’t mind losing everything,” he said.

“Last year we did something incredible. The year before we created a stage that was amazing and ended up being spoken about around the world. The show will be all about Africa, because we want to show off what this continent can do, but with insane technology and production.

“When we talk about historical concerts, we always talk about America and American artists. We don’t want that anymore, that is why I didn’t invite an American artist to join the show. When we do this it will go down as the biggest hip-hop concert in the world. That is the power of the African dream and I am ready to make it a reality,” he said.

DJ Sabby joins Gauteng Department of Community Safety in #Asifikeni Campaign

DJ Sabby The YFM Drive Time Host

DJ Sabby is officially one of the ambassadors of the #Asifikeni campaign conducted by the Gauteng Department of Community Safety. The YFM Drive Time Host will be one of many South African Celebrities to show their support for the campaign. #Asifikeni is a campaign that aims to create enormous awareness on Road safety and responsible drinking within communities specifically amongst the youth.

The project was initially developed to reduce the fatalities on the road that are often caused by irresponsible drinking and reckless driving, as the number of these incidents are alarming within the community. The Department of Safety and Community aims to work with parties involved in the campaign to ensure that we take extra precautions when it comes to road safety.

This project is to protect the future of our nation which is the youth and to ensure that Road Safety is a priority within our communities. DJ Sabby will be working alongside JMPD, Gauteng and Black Brain Pictures to ensure that the campaign reaches the masses.

“We often get approached as personalities to do several campaigns and this one stands out for me as the aim is to promote being safe on the road and just being safe period. The campaign #Asifikeni aims to reaffirm the message to young people that your life is worth a lot more than you think. I will be putting together a song with some of the biggest names in music to help spread the awareness and people can let me know who they would like to hear on the song.” Expresses DJ Sabby



“I have been in studio listening to several beats and just cooking up some music for 2018 and when the department reached out and asked for me to make a song that drives the message to the young people of the province of Gauteng. I took it as a sign that it’s time to drop music again. I’m calling out on artists to reach out should they want to be part of the song. I can confirm that I will be working with hitmaker producer, Tweezy on the song. We should be making artist feature announcements soon as we don’t have a lot of time to make the song and drop a video. Fans can also suggest via my social media handles as to who they would like me to contact for the song.” Expresses DJ Sabby

“We are excited to join the Asifikeni campaign to help bring about awareness amongst the youth within our communities, by becoming a part of this project it is a great honour not only to serve the community but to also add our efforts and resources to make the campaign a success. We as Black Brain aim to create a relatable platform for the youth to discuss the issue of responsible drinking and road safety.” – Mandla N

“It was important for us to create a credible and sustainable campaign that will tackle the issue of road safety and reduce the number of fatalities on the road. This project will aid the youth in taking extra precautions when making use of our roads not only for them, but for other road users as well and for the safety of our communities. We are looking forward to the continuous success of the campaign” – Government representative.
