“Next time I do a radio or any interview and the person didn’t do their research I’m walking out. Last night was a mess. A smiled cause I had to. These young kids don’t care to research” Omuhle tweeted

Lasizwe clapped back at her accusations saying that his listeners did not care about what she had done and that the actress was just being ‘boujee’

“Darl…next time do some research urself.. my show isn’t a talk show. My show is a fun and interactive show. My listeners don’t care about what u have done, they care about a guests fun side n these kids…r coining it, Try stay relevant. Stop being Boujee” he responded.

Omuhle Gela responded to the tweet saying: “Then you shouldn’t have asked the questions if people don’t care”

Trevor Noah opens up to Oprah Winfrey about his mom

Oprah Winfrey and Trevor Noah

Speaking to Oprah Winfrey as part of her SuperSoul Conversations series, comedian Trevor Noah opened up about his mother and the major influence she has had on his life.

Noah paid homage to his mother in a short video clip uploaded to the Oprah Winfrey Network’s YouTube channel.

Oprah started off by commenting on how “badass” Trevor’s mom was.

“Most people would have a sign to protest government oppression, my mother had me. In telling my story and writing this book, I never thought it was about my mom. I think most of us believe that we are the heroes of our story and in writing this story, I realised that I was my mother’s punk ass side-kick,” said Trevor.

When writing Born A Crime, Trevor didn’t intentionally set out to focus it around his mother. He was simply telling his life story.

“To be honest, I didn’t plan on getting married last year. It was not something that was part of ‘the plan’ for my life but it was just something the I felt in my heart. When I met Ntando, I just knew. I was like, ‘this is it for me and I ain’t trying to waste the rest of my life without her” he said.

Speaking about his wife, the Pastor’s kid said, “She’s an incredible human being. She’s a strong character and comes from a phenomenal family. Everything about her culminates into this beautiful person that I want to spend the rest of my life with.”

Tshepo Kabelo Mabuza aka SIR KAYBEE

Up coming DJ and music producer SIR KAYBEE is ready to take his name to the next level in Mzansi. SIR KAYBEE whose real name is Tshepo Kabelo Mabuza hails from Johannesburg, Gauteng.

Tshepo told Fame Africa TV that he’s part of the group called SIRNesh and he is currently busy working on his EP.

“Right now I’m working on my EP which will include tracks I did a while back from the previous EP. However, I am not yet sure which track will be out first but I have a single with my partner titled ‘Hamba’. The single is being received well by the people.”

When asked about what inspired him to start deejaying, the upcoming producer said “passion and for some reason I’ve always wanted to be in the music industry, I thought I was going to be a singer, but here I am today as a DJ.”

SIR KAYBEE also told us that he’s got a list of South African celebrities he believes are most influential. “It’s a long list but these gentlemen played an important role in building me as an artist. I look up to DJ Black Coffee, AKA, Oskido, DJ Sbu and Zola 7,” – he said.

The unseen talent sees himself paving his own way to the top with a different sound and mostly he’s not competing with anyone but himself.

“We all different individuals I can’t say I’m competing with someone whereas we got different goals and aren’t in the same league.”

“The aim is to be as big as I can be, an international status would be lovely and have helped a lot of young talent come up because as a newcomer myself I know the difficulties and some of the scams we go through.”

His message to all upcoming artists is “my message would be do music or whatever you want to do because you love it and have the zeal for it. Don’t do it because your friends are doing it, also don’t do it for the money, patience is key.”

You can follow SIR KAYBEE on Twitter @tsheposirkaybee for more updates on his upcoming EP. We wish him all the best on his journey.

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.

Government paid Real Talk With Anele R500K to interview Bathabile Dlamini

Minister of Social Development Bathabile Dlamini on Real Talk with Anele

SABC 3’s talk show Real Talk With Anele has came under fire after a Daily Maverick article emerged that the public broadcaster received a R500 000 payment for controversial Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini to appear on the show.

The publication stated that the two-hour profile interview of the minister, which aired in December was part of a strategic PR plan for the minister, who made headlines last year.

The SABC and the minister’s office have since confirmed that the payment took place.

“The Department of Social Development (DSD) through GCIS buys space [in] the media for the sole purpose of marketing and advertising of the Minister of Social Development, the Department and its agencies. To date, through GCIS the Department has transferred more than R5 million to the SABC for this purpose.” – the article stated.

Lumka Oliphant, Minister Dlamini’s spokesperson, further pointed out that “to date, through GCIS the Department has transferred more than R5 million to the SABC for this purpose.

“The SABC would give us space across all its platforms on radio, TV and online media. They give us a schedule to agree and be available for. The SABC is a strategic partner for communication because it has the reach, the platforms and the languages. They have a dedicated sales team to get business from Government Departments. A standard practice in the media industry.”

The talk show host Anele came out to set the record straight that she personally did not receive any money. She took to Twitter saying she did not receive any money.

Anele Mdoda

“They can have it out. As long as they don’t insinuate that I took the money. My word. My poor name! Literally poor if I would be willing to throw it away for R500 000. Okay as long as that’s cleared up. I am good now,” she said.
