 The nominees for the 63rd Grammy awards are out and the weekend was not even nominated for one award and The weekend ‘s fans are not taking pretty well.

 It’s not up to debate that ‘blinding lights’ was a highly omnipresent song in the past year and It is hard to imagine this distraught year without the weekend’s ‘After hours’ there to make everything much more bearable and it’s no secret that he led experts predictions lists for the pasts months.

And yet the total number of nominees for the star amounted to zero.

Just a day before the Grammy nomination were announced, Abel shared a message thanking his fans for the support and on his after hours album journey. 

Immediately after the eligibility window closed, a trailer—featuring acclaim for the acclaim-worthy album—was shared from the official Weekend Twitter account.

Fans have been trying to connect the dots to this zero nominations shock and many are angry.  The following are fans comments on the issue.

MZANSI’s very own Trevor Noah has been chosen to host the 2021 63rd annual Grammy Awards. The South African stand-up comedian who has relocated to America and since has been hosting The Daily Show. His show has been doing remarkably well, where he holds interviews with some of the most prominent celebrities in the US.

Noah went on to share his thoughts on being chosen to host the 63rd Grammy saying “despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the Grammys have refused to have me singing or be nominated for the best pop album I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event“,

Trevor went on to add sarcastically that he thinks as a one time Grammy nominee he is the best person to provide a shoulder to cry on to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night- “because I do know the pain of not winning the award”.

This year’s Grammy Awards were hosted by the amazing Alicia Keys. Trevor Noah, who was nominated for best comedy album at this year’s Grammys says he’s excited to be following the footsteps of someone who is brilliant both as a musician and a visual content creator.

The 63rd GRAMMY Awards nominees are to be announced today, 24 NOvember at 9am according to the US time. meaning we will hear shortly in an hour who the nominees are. The actual ceremony will take place on the 31st of January 2021. Be sure to keep on the loop for that!

A Second Wave May Hit in January 2021.

Google images

South Africa recently saw a promising future concerning covid-19 after the lockdown was lifted back in September. However, the latest reports claim that some European countries are seeing a rise of covid-19 cases. In South Africa alone, 2217 new Covid 19 cases have been confirmed today but professor Abdul Karim- a South African epidemiologist assures that South Africa is not in a second wave right now.

For the past weeks, cases of Covid-19 have been stable however the health department is concerned that with the festive season approaching there could be reckless actions that could lead to super- spreader events and increased infections especially in the rural parts of the country. Latest reports claim that most parts of South Africa are monitored as stable except for places in the Eastern Cape such as Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay hospital) which is “currently overwhelmed with the Covid-19 surge” and some parts of the Western Cape.

The Professor went on to highlight some of the worries he has; particularly of the festive season saying “my concern is the December period when there are three things that are going to happen that worry me: firstly, that people become complacent while on holiday and they stop wearing masks and do not practice social distancing and the second thing is that they start going to parties and we will end up with super-spreader events. I’m anxious about the intergenerational family gatherings where children are meeting their parents and their grandparents and therefore putting the elderly at risk. These three things that I am deeply concerned about over December could end up with us in the second wave in January 2021″ he explained.

South Africa, although the country may be open and some activities carrying on as normal, PLEASE do continue practising social distance, wash your hands & sanitise and always wear your mask. this way it’ll be easier to stay safe here in 2020 and curb the Second Wave in 2021. Let’s make the future less gloomy Mzansi!

Rhythm City is coming to an end

Photo by: Google

The popular television soapie, Rhythm City, is set to end next year and a new local show is taking over its spot. It’s last episode will air in July 2021.

Mzansi was taken aback and crashed by the confirmation that indeed the 13 year old soapie is coming to a sudden conclusion

The Channel, E.tv, where the show airs announced on Friday in a statement. According to Times live the states the decision to pull the popular soapie out of the channel was influenced by a  business strategy which included reviewing the show’s on air-life cycle.

The show started airing on the 9 of July 2007. Rhythm City revolves around the struggles of surviving Jozi Johannesburg. It all starts in a two roomed home and the experiences follow two empires in the entertainment space; The Generos and the Ndlovus and how their heirs want to dominate the scene. Our characters try to navigate around the affluent and aspirational lifestyles of the city. Past rivalries, industry conflicts, infidelity, backstabbing, sexuality, love, and pain, good and evil are the order of the day as the story plays out moving from between the township to the suburbs.

“Rhythm City has secured its place in e. tv’s history books, and a legacy mark has been made. We want to extend our gratitude to the entire production staff, crew  and cast for their incomparable craft,” said Marlon Davids, e.tv managing director. 

It managed to pull a hefty number of viewers over the years. At its peaked it attracted over five million adult viewers this year and has has been among the top-10 most watched soapies in the country.

Throughout the most recent couple of months the show additionally lost a portion of its long-standing leads, including Jamie Bartlett (David Genaro), Samkelo Ndlovu (Lerato) and Amo Chidi (Rene)

The decision to end the sure was surely not easy information for the Rhythm city cast and crew to digest. 

Actress Mapula Mafole, who plays Mapula on the soapie, seemed very unhappy, while Thishiwe Ziqubu said a prayer for the cast and crew to find other jobs.

Fans devastated by the news

Uber is testing a cheaper service option

Photo by: google

Uber is testing UberNAm in South Africa, a new, cheaper option, with trips that cost a minimum of R19.

Currently Uber trips start from R25.

Just like it’s competitors Bolt’s Go option, which is the new service that was launched by bolt a while ago. They mostly make use of hatchbacks as they are a more cheaper option for clients and less effort to maintain. The bolt go option is 20% cheaper than its normal rides option.

The new service, bolt go, had already been trialed successfully in East London and port Elizabeth. Now it is being rolled out to all cities and towns within South Africa where bolt is active. According to Business insider, even though fares are going to be 20% cheaper than bolts standard prices, time and kilometer-based rates still vary between locations.

According to Business Insider, Gareth Taylor, country manager for Bolt in South Africa. Admits that smaller hatch backs are less expensive.

“Smaller hatchback cars are less expensive to purchase, have lower maintenance costs, and are more fuel-efficient to operate than Bolt’s regular larger sedan cars” Taylor stated.

These lower operational costs additionally empower Bolt Go admissions to be essentially more reasonable.

The service is ideal for quick short trips. For instance it would work great if you want to quickly get to work, shops and so on. -all dependent on the Covid-19 regulations at any time. 

The hatchback cars only operate in the bolt go category. Bolt has enabled the drivers of the regular larger cars to be able to  be able to choose on an ad-hoc basis to bolt go.

Bolt foresees that well known vehicles used to deliver the administration will incorporate the following models the Volkswagen Polo Vivo, Datsun Go and Toyota Etios.
