After another week of making headlines and being dragged on social media, Cassper has hinted at the private tears he sheds while trying to put on a brave face. The star dominated social media news feeds this week when fans zoned in on comments he made about wishing he was Nigerian because of the support that country’s artists get.

Cassper later turned the negative attention into a positive, claiming the buzz had helped him market his upcoming #FillUp concert, to be formally announced next week.

After the chaos around him had settled down, the rapper returned to social media to hint at the battles he often faced in private.I can’t wait to tell you all about what I went through with a smile in public and private tears one day,” he wrote.

The rapper said he found strength in God and claimed he would have “perished” long ago without the anchor of his faith. He is truly faithful and merciful. All the Glory to God,” he added.

The star has previously spoken about his battles with depressing and dark thoughts. In February, the Tito Mboweni rapper shared how music helped him “get out” of his dark place.

“This verse from Omen helped me get out [of my] depression. Used to play J Cole’s Enchanted back to back for months on end when I felt down,” he wrote, next to the lyrics from the song. He also claimed in June to be one of the most hated MCs in SA.

He has tried to counter the hate by publicly praising himself and recounting his accomplishments. Cassper said not listening to those who took shots at him helped

Zodwa Wabantu regrets losing Ntobeko Linda through fame

Published

Zodwa Wabantu

Zodwa Wabantu bares all in the last episode of her reality show on Moja Love, which was shot at Soweto Theatre on Monday night. Dressed in a black crop top, short skirt and strappy heels, Zodwa was in high spirits despite reports of her recent split from fiancé Ntobeko Linda, who was at the event. The socialite and dancer was joined by Khanyi Mbau (they both dated wealthy businessman Mandla Mthembu); controversial musician Jub Jub and Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng, a s-e-x therapist. The show was hosted by Trevor Gumbi.

The Soweto-born star, who shot to fame as a dancer who preferred to gyrate on stage sans any underwear and in barely-there outfits, started out as a 16-years old hustling on the streets, trying her best to eke out a living the only way she knew how.

And she wasn’t ashamed to revisit her past. I’ll never forget taking care of myself as a child, that’s why I’m not scared of anything, you can’t hurt me. They used to hide bath soap and food from me. I then realised that I have a vagina I can use to better myself.

I remember staying with my friend Nombulelo Nkomo at Dlamini 2 (Soweto). She had a backroom; so we would squat there. I would go to the streets to hustle and she would do all the house chores for us. I was the provider, bringing home plastics full of groceries,” Zodwa recalled.

After realising that life on the streets wasn’t really sustainable, Zodwa re-branded herself.

She explained: “Street-life doesn’t pay. The money you get just disappears without even seeing how you spent it. I know in the hood some women still do it for alcohol, expensive hair and staying at luxurious hotels but I was never that person. I would tell a guy not to take me to the public and feed me expensive food or stuff like that, I just wanted money.”

Since bursting onto the social scene in 2017, when she got all eyes on her at the Vodacom Durban July, her career took a turn for the better. She scored many gigs and grabbed headlines for her butt-naked performances. Some saluted her and others slated her. She was even banned from performing in some African countries.

But that didn’t stop her from being who she is. Instead, she continued to trend on social media and bagged Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored, where she reveals much about her personal life with Linda, whom she was supposed to marry.

“Being in a relationship with a young person like Ntobeko was so nice because I didn’t have to cook or do laundry for him, he couldn’t tell me anything. I work hard, I have money and that’s how I kept him,” Zodwa revealed. However, the romance was short-lived. Not long after proposing to him with a R55 000 engagement ring and paying lobola, Zodwa called it quits.

“I called off the wedding after considering Ntobeko’s feelings because he’s still young and would probably want to have children in the future, which is not part of my plans,” Zodwa admitted. While she regrets losing her man through fame, she doesn’t regret the fractured relationship she has with some of her family.

“I don’t have to fix any relationship with my family because we don’t have a proper foundation. They can’t have me now. Yes, they can call me if they need help and I will provide for them but they have no right to have a say in what I do with my life. I don’t need them, even to bury me because they once said I’ll have to bury myself when I was living the street life, not even knowing why I was doing it,” she shared.

Zodwa Wabantu

That said, she does maintain her close ties with her two sisters and an aunt, who would check up on her when things got really tough. Zodwa has made friends in the industry, who have sort of becoming family to her. Mbau is one such person. Besides having the similarities of not caring about what people say, Zodwa and Mbau have something else in common-their kids share the same father.

When asked if there was ever bad blood between the two, Mbau said she’s never had a problem with Zodwa and they got along since the first time they met.

Even though she has a thick skin, Zodwa confessed that she sometimes cries when she watches her show because it takes her back to her ugly past. But she feels optimistic about the future and is taking it one day at a time. To see the full interview, catch the finale episode of “Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored” this Saturday at 6pm on Moja Love (DStv channel 157).

King Monada’s ex-Friend drags him online

An angry former friend has just done his best to rub King Monada’s name through the mud and the scorned man has dubbed the singer as “greedy” in what is quickly becoming an ugly Twitter war. It feels like everybody in South Africa loves King Monada right now. Some have compared him to Burna Boy and Wizkid while others have described him as our answer to Drake. But it seems as if the one person across the whole of Mzansi who does not like the singer (and his infectious brand of music) it’s his former best friend, Omee Otis.

It all began when a song was released titled “Letter to the King” and there are no prizes for guessing who it was directed at. Omee, who is a musician himself, released the diss track which was loaded with explosive allegations against “The King” which included details of fights with other artists, accusations of selfishness and plenty more.

King Monada

Among some of the most scandalous lines came the accusation that Omee Otis had written some of King Monada’s songs and not been credited:

Omee also accuses King Monada of fighting with one half of Double Trouble (a member by the name of CK). Omee says, “He even fought with CK of Double Trouble after he appeared in one of Master KG’s music videos.

However, the disgruntled former friend has found little sympathy on the timeline and indeed the industry. King Monada’s fans have been extremely vocal about whose side they are taking in this beef (hint, it’s not Omee’s!) while CK from Double Trouble has completely dismissed all suggestion of him ever fighting with King Monada.

Meanwhile, King Monada’s manager, Albert Makwela, had no time for these allegations. In a comment to Sunday Sun, the manager said,

“Look, Monada is one of the top artists and people will always drag his name through the mud. We can see that Omee has moved to another recording studio and is being used to attack Monada,”

Do you agree with albert that Omee Otis is simply looking for clout by attacking one of the most successful musicians in the country?

At 22, social media influencer Mihlali Ndamase has landed a spot on the global Instagram rich list. UK-based media company Hopper HQ released its annual list recently and Ndamase took the 135th spot, charging about R25,000 for every Instagram post. The only other South African on the list is Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel, who was placed 49th with 13.5-million followers, charging about R684,000 for every post.

Mihlali Ndamase

Ndamase told the Sunday Times that seeing her name on the list was a proud and rewarding moment. The makeup artist, who grew up in the small town of Kokstad, said that as a young girl she was inspired by international YouTubers, which resulted in her starting her own channel.

Mihlali Ndamase

Soon after joining Instagram in 2014, Ndamase had 10,000 followers, who over the past five years have grown to 755,000. Taking the No1 spot on the list was American socialite Kylie Jenner, who apparently makes R16.6m for each post, followed by US singer-actress Ariana Grande on R13.8m and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo on R13.5m. Ndamase said being on the same list as the three was “a blessing”.

“It’s a reminder that I have come far and I can definitely get further. To be recognised among international stars isn’t child’s play, it truly is a blessing. Ndamase said that even though her journey had come with challenges, she had persevered because she believed in her dream. When she got into the industry, the term “social media influencer” had not been in vogue, but that had changed over the years, she said.

Mihlali Ndamase

“The term ‘influencer’ back then was not really popular. Influencing had more to do with a celebrity. Now an influencer is regarded as someone who has an audience and I think it allows for people, like myself, to unleash our potential and possibly change people’s lives
Ndamase said that when she told her family about the career path she had chosen, she got push-back.

“My grandmother was really not happy about it. My mother has always been supportive of my dreams and everyone else in my family is only just getting the hang of it now because they can see that I am doing well with it.
