Controversial socialite Skolopad fears for her life

Skolopad fears for her life

According to TshisaLIVE, entertainer Skolopad whose her real name is Nonhlanhla Qwabe claims to be fearing for her safety after allegedly receiving random visits by strangers at her home and “verbal threats” at her workplace.

Skolopad told TshisaLIVE that after several nerve-raking encounters recently, she doesn’t feel safe anymore.

“I think I’m only realising how serious this is now. It’s not only work that I am worried about but my house as well. There are random people just pitching up at my house at odd hours and I don’t feel safe at all. In addition, I can’t trust some of the people I work with now and it’s getting hectic.”

Skolopad, who shot to fame after gracing the Metro FM Music Awards red carpet earlier this year in a revealing yellow dress, said she had not anticipated that her fame would ever make her feel “unsafe”.

Reports say Skolopad approached management to help her study extra courses next year, which she believes will enable her to move to a new place where she would not be easily recognised.

“I want to advance and do courses that will lead to my eventual diploma in nursing. The way I see it, that is the only thing that will help me move away from my current work space and location. I would go do it in Bloemfontein or Welkom. So far, we are waiting for approval but I really hope it comes through.”

The entertainer has previously spoken out about conflict at her workplace, which flared after her sudden rise to fame.

“After the SAMAs, my bosses wanted to fire me at work. The matrons were happy to get rid of me at work,” she said.

Skolopad said that she had met with the head of department at the hospital she worked at to try to resolve the concerns. She was told she could continue with her alter ego if she covered up.

Rapper Emtee apologizes for sharing his manhood on Instagram

Rapper Emtee SA apologise for sharing manhood on Instagram

Rapper Emtee, who has become the talk of the town over leaked pictures of his manhood, has described the debacle as a “big mistake”.

Screenshots from a video, which was shared by Emtee on Instagram live, went viral on Monday morning, with thousands of followers poking fun at the situation.

In an interview with TshisaLIVE, Emtee expressed his sincere apologies and hopes that we can move on from this “big mistake”.

“I was in the toilet and answering fans’ questions on Instagram live. I needed to pee but without thinking I used the same hand I was holding my phone, while I was doing my thing and used the same hand to flush. I didn’t even think about it until I realised what I had done and I immediately apologized. I was like ‘oh, no!,” he said.

Emtee said he deleted the video as soon as he realised what happened because he didn’t do it on purpose. The rapper said he was aware of the comments being made about him on Twitter but couldn’t do much else except wait for the storm to subside.

“I have seen the reaction and I am not sure what I can do about it or how to justify it. I am aware of what they are saying about me. I am sorry and there’s not much else I can do. I am a soldier so I will weather this storm and just see what happens.”

Cape Town Blues Rocker Aidan Martin releases highly anticipated new album REFUGEE

Cape Town Blues Rocker Aidan Martin new album REFUGEE

A changeling and a chaser of truth, Aidan Martin is forever seeking authenticity when it comes to his craft, and the much-anticipated album Refugee is a true testament to this passion. He believes in creating music that is accessible to everyone, that inspires consciousness, freedom of thought and freedom of creation.

Throughout his career, he has remained true to his roots and has consistently produced music that is polished, accessible and uncompromisingly rock ‘n’ roll. Or – as he calls it –  AfroRock/PurpleBlues/Rhythm & Soul/Freedom/Changeling.

Just as the mesh of genres proclaim, Aidan is a multitalented musician and songwriter, while his work is underscored by an undeniable sense of purpose and soul. In a time when audiences are seeking the next big thing by scrolling through their social media feeds, it has become increasingly hard to find a musician – and band members – who are true to their art; musicians who breathe groovy blues and play to the soul of rock.



At the helm of steering Refugee into world-class production is Graham Ward, award-winning producer, composer and songwriter, who has worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Ray Charles, Bee Gees and Toni Braxton, to name a few.

“Graham brings years of industry experience and compelling talents to the table and adds that extra ingredient to the music. We are very lucky to work with someone of his calibre,” Aidan said.

Never one to stand still, Aidan is constantly seeking ways to perfect his craft while he tirelessly gigs across South Africa. It is this drive that makes him one of today’s rare musicians, practicing an unparalleled work ethic and dedication to the art of making music.

“This is it for me. There’s no time for the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, because I have to continue to focus on my craft.” Aidan Martin might see himself as a refugee of life, but he sure knows how to turn his determination into a thing of beauty.

Refugee now available on: iTunes, Deezer, Spotify and Amazon
