Basetsana Kumalo shares anti-aging journey with fans

Basetsana Kumalo anti aging

Former Miss South Africa, Basetsana Kumalo has undergone an anti-aging process in Germany.

Basetsana Julia “Bassie” Kumalo is a South African television personality, beauty pageant titleholder, businesswoman, and philanthropist. Her career began in 1990 when she was crowned Miss Soweto and Miss Black South Africa at the age of 16.

Since arriving in Europe earlier this month, the TV personality has been documenting the process through her Instagram page.

Part 1:

With the IV Laser, the red blood cells are being charged with energy, that when they pass by the bone marrow, they dissolve the CD34+ stem cells from the bone marrow. Then, the stem cell will go into the blood stream from where it will be extracted.

Part 2:

“The CD34+ stem cell lives in the bone marrow, it’s the purest cell as it’s not exposed to anything including the sun… The body is wise to be able to heal itself if we go back to basics. So the extraction of this cell, being processed in the lab and being reinjected back into your system allows this (honey- it come out looking like that, gooey and brown) to heal and repair 60000 ill cells in your body, including areas of pain, and discomfort. The added bonus is that your own cells can be injected on your face to give you a rejuvenated light look and improve the condition of your skin remarkably. So the cells have no toxins that can potentially affect you later on in life (it comes from your own body, so your body can’t reject it) , which some facial treatments including Botox have been reported to have toxins in and there is no conclusive scientific evidence to date to prove otherwise. (Not judging, each to their own).

The Close up with Connie Bhebhe

Connie Bhebhe unseen talent

A new South African artist, Connie Bhebhe has recently released her debut single, Remember. Connie says Remember is a song about loving someone who doesn’t deserve you. This song is about a good girl who gives her all to a “bad-boy” who always finds his way back to the bad girls of his past.

Connie also has multiple other songs recorded and ready to release. We’ve spent time with Connie just know her better.

Who are you and how did you become a artist?
My name is Connie Bhebhe, I’m best known as the owner of the cosmetic company Connie Transform.
I was first introduced to music in school by entering talent shows and although I never won, I focused my attention to writing. I always doubted that music would be lucrative so I shifted my attention to business because I never wanted to be a struggling artist. Now that I am in a good place, I am able to return to music and do it out of passion.

Who is your inspiration or what inspires you the most?
Girls like Stef Lon Don and even Nadia Nakai are inspirational because they carve out their own slice of the pie and bet on themselves.
