DJ Zinhle Joins the Airbnb business

Here’s a glimpse of DJ Zinhle’s newly opened Airbnb.

You could soon be staying over at a place designed by one of the continent’s biggest female entertainers, DJ Zinhle.

The star, who is mostly known for her interior decorating skills, has kitted out an apartment and joined the world of Airbnb.

She has been working on the project for a while now and took to social media on Tuesday to announce that the pad was now open for business.

“We are Airbnb ready! Finally done working on this project and I love the results,” she said. 

Zinhle added that the project had given her “so much joy” and thanked her friend Zak and colleagues at her home design and furniture brand Jiyane Atelier.

Speaking about the project earlier this month, the star admitted to having some challenges decorating the place because she was only able to buy everything online.

‘But it’s all coming together,” she reassured fans.

The apartment brings in black and white tiles with dark coloured furniture, fixtures and fittings. 

The main bedroom is decorated with a dark feature wall and white accents.

Take a look at some snaps from the place:

Lasizwe opens up about the ‘anger’ he felt towards his father who ‘broke’ him.

Reality TV star Lasizwe has never been shy to put his “absent father” on blast in the past and this time he took to Twitter to reflect on how broken and angry he still is that his father wasn’t “truly” there for him.

The vlogger told his followers he wished they never had to experience the feeling of not feeling loved by their fathers. He explained that feeling that way has left him angry at his father.

“I pray you experience what it means to be loved by your father! I pray you don’t experience the level of brokenness and anger I have towards my father.”

He also expressed his desire to find healing of past emotional hurt he’s experienced at the hands of his father.

“I pray I find some healing because that man really tore my heart into pieces from a tender age!” he said.

The reality star has previously opened up about the issues he has with his father on his reality show Fake It Till You Make It

In one episode, Lasizwe went to therapy with his older sister Khanyi Mbau and mentioned that he did not see his father much when he was growing up. He said he was raised by a single mother with the help of his maternal family.

In a candid interview with Mac G, Khanyi explained that part of the reason she dated sugar daddies earlier in her life was because she has daddy issues.

Zodwa Wabantu doesn’t think her Ben 10’s are using her

‘I wouldn’t say they use me, because I love them’ – Zodwa on dating younger men.

As her drama with Vusi Ngubane continues, Zodwa Wabantu has vehemently denied the suggestion that young men only date her so they can benefit from her money and fame.

The common trait Mzansi has seen with Zodwa’s Ben 10s is that she spends large amounts of money on them, and they become famous by association.

In a recent interview on Podcast and Chill, Mac G asked if she feels like they date her only to use her, but it was very clear that she doesn’t think so.

“I wouldn’t say they use me because I love them. I allow them to wear them sneakers, the T-shirts and the jeans from Dubai or wherever I travel to. The watches, the latest phones from Dubai and whatever.

“I buy those things for them, I choose to do that. The problem that ends our relationship is that they change and they want to be Chris Brown,” Zodwa told Mac G.

Zodwa says she’s loved worldwide for being herself, and she isn’t desperate for love, but she does loves attention and has found that young boys do better when it comes to that.

Responding to the criticism on Instagram, Zodwa wrote: “They (young men) go for me and if I like them I say yes.” She also advised that her critics should leave her alone, or go to the police if they have a problem with her.

Black coffe In Tax Drama!

South African DJ, Black Coffee joins some of SA celebs who’s been in trouble with SA Revenue Service (SARS).

World-renowned South African musician Nkosinathi “Black Coffee” Maphumulo is the latest Mzansi celebrity to land up in trouble with the taxman.

According to legal papers submitted by the award-winning record producer at the Johannesburg High Court recently, the 44-year-old, who is known for his sold-out shows across South Africa and internationally, may owe the SA Revenue Service (SARS) millions of rands.

The paper reports that Black Coffe owes SARS R40 Million for being in arrears income tax, but negotiated to pay R8 million after he made a representation on his present financial position and inability to comply with R40 million assessment.

He also said he had reached an agreement with SARS to dispose of his immovable properties to generate funds to pay the R8 million, specifically to avoid the attachment of his properties. 

Maphumulo’s statement read: “Considering the nature of his business, it is impossible to predict or state his average monthly income due to the fact that it fluctuates substantially as a result of not only market forces, but also the seasonality of the industry.” 

When the media approached SARS for comments this week, spokesperson Siphithi Sibeko said this was a private matter between the revenue service and a taxpayer. 

“As Sars, we are prohibited to disclose or comment on taxpayers’ confidentiality,” he said.

Black Coffee’s representative, Kagiso Dinaka, declined to comment on the tax matters. 

The DJ is also set to sell some of his properties to pay for his debt Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali  recently had tongues wagging after it was reported that Mbali demanded R4 million, for her legal fees as their divorce drama continues.

Clearly there are more problems that he is currently facing in his personal life.

Fans shooketh by the news of Jada Pinkett Smith’s affair with August Alsina

August Alsina claims Jada’s husband Will give him their blessings.

American artist August Alsina had the internet shaking to the core on Wednesday when he confirmed that he had an affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith, claiming he had her husband’s blessing.

August dropped the bombshell during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee.

He claimed to have spoken to superstar Will Smith, Jada’s husband, about their relationship before it all started.

“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation of their marriage to life partnership. He gave me his blessing,” he claimed.

August said he gave himself “fully” to the relationship for years.

“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” August said.

He admitted their split “broke him down” and left him feeling paralysed.

Jada addressed rumours that she was in an open marriage, telling HuffPost in 2013 that she had told Will that he could do whatever he wants as long as he can look at himself in the mirror without regret.

“I’ve always told Will: ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay’. Because, at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be. That’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.” 

August’s comments had social media users in a spaz, and soon Jada’s name topped the local Twitter trends list as Mzansi weighed in on her and Will’s relationship.

Here are some of the reactions:

Thando Thabethe: “My first love is acting, but i don’t rule out returning to radIo”

Thando Thabethe refuses to rule our the possibility of going back to radio.

It’s been almost four months since Thando Thabethe resigned at 5FM, but she has refused to rule out the possibility of returning back to radio. The star left the station due to contractual issues, and recently told Drum  that she had to leave for her own peace of mind.

“It’s unfortunate how things turned out. I needed to do it for myself, and I am very proud of myself for it.”

Thando said her first love is acting, and that will be the focus of her career going forward. However, she won’t rule out the possibility of her returning to the airwaves, but maybe in a different form.

Fans have been calling for Thando to return to the airwaves, and she has constantly thanked fans for their support.

“I think radio is changing with the times. Podcasts seem to be the way forward. They afford listeners what Netflix offers viewers, namely on-demand consumption of content. Would I go back to radio? Never say never.”

Thando took to Twitter in April to open up about her 5FM exit, claiming  she had tried to negotiate a pay increase and some leave in her contract renewal, but later heard  her popular afternoon drive-time show would no longer be aired as it allegedly did not fit into the SABC’s two to five-year plan.

Thando and the SABC allegedly had several back and forths before she decided to resign.

AKA & Cassper are to battle it out on the ring

According to the recent episodne of YouTube podcast PopCast, which features Scoop Makhathini, Ms Cosmo, PH and DJ Speedsta, Cassper confirmed that the boxing match will see the light of day on his Saturday Metro FM show.

This is what the social media streets have been waiting for and are are still unstable about, no one is quite sure who will win just yet. After fans learnt that they may finally get the boxing match they’ve been SBWL’ing since AKA toyed with the idea on TL. Cassper finally agreed to entertain the match and Mzansi can’t wait.

“We need to meet in the ring. That’s all I want. It’s too late for apologies,” Cass said on Speedsta’s show.

Now, there aren’t many details available currently except to say that the match is allegedly set for some time later this year.

But, of course, this has not stopped the pair from preparing the fans from placing their bets and psyching themselves up for the big fight.

Cassper took to Twitter to post the announcement and share his excitement, totally singing a different tune to the one he was shouting at the top of his lungs just a few weeks back when AKA hurled insults at his entire family while trying to taunt him into accepting the fight.

The rapper is getting himself some mental training.

“Boxing is such an amazing form of art. The history and the stories are inspiring. True championship shit!!! I have so much respect for people who do this for a living. I’ve been introduced to a new world and I’m inspired,” he said.

AKA had previously said that he and Cass stood to make millions (each) from the fight and he’s finally got what he wanted.

So what is he doing now that the match is at that “on your marks, get ready …” stage?

AKA’s BEEN mentally ready for the fight, so he’s getting his physical training in!

Who are you putting your money on?
