Former Mamelodi Sundowns star ANELE NGCONGCA HAS PASSED AWAY

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star Anele Ngcongca, aged 33, has been confirmed dead in the early hours of Monday, the 23rd of November, after he was involved in a horrific car crash in KwaZulu-Natal.

It is saddening that South Africa has learnt about the passing of the defender. A reliable and close source to the player revealed on social media about the tragedy that had occurred.

The accident occurred in the early hours of the morning, along the N2 in Umlazi, as the vehicle was found toddled over on the grass along side the road.

Anele Ngcongca had just joined AmaZulu after leaving Mamelodi Sundowns in 2020 as he was set to play for the team this season, and unveiled last week already in Usuthu, but the unveiling was delayed due to the team having a match against his parent club Sundowns on Sunday, but now this tragedy cut his life short.

He made more than 200 appearances in European Football at the highest levels, turning out in the top flights of Belgium and France. In 2016, he first joined Mamelodi Sundowns, elected to return home following a brief loan spell at Troyes in Ligue 1. The football star won plenty under Pitso Mosimane, as he lifted the PSL Trophy, the Nedbank Cup and the Telkom Knockout Cup, during his years in Tswane.

This tragedy takes South Africa by shock.

We share our condolences to the family of Anele Ngcongca.

May Anele Ngcongca Rest in Peace.

Tbo Touch reacts to claims against him being Xenophobic.

Celebrity and media personality Tbo Touch received a lot of resilience following his recent social media comments about immigrants crossing the South African borders illegally, the 19th of November, on Twitter.

The masses at large bombarded the social media platform after he commented on a video post by which the prime time news anchor Cathy Mohlahlana, of Newzroom Afrika posted, revealing how many immigrants entered the country illegally.

The video clearly shows how a small group of people emerged from the bushes, running towards minibuses parked by the side of the road.

Tbo Touch came across the post, and shared his view, in his response to Mohlahlana, he wrote: “Cathy, we have Home Affairs throwing toys all over the place on #Bushiri when they know we have open borders. There are 4,5million illegal immigrants in SA with no finger prints, valid identity at all.”

See his response below:

After his response, the masses took to the platform, describing and labelling the media personality as “Xenophobic”, whilst a few applauded at him, by noting that the South African Government is not doing enough to protect it`s citizens by handling the borders issue. Tbo Touch then reacted once more, highlighting what had occurred with him and his wife Nandi Molefe during a terrible robbery incident.

Furthermore, the star tweeted that we should not misinterpret Xenophobia and Patriotism. In this tweet, he paints a clear distinction of what his action against the initial tweet means and that everybody must be proud of their nationality!

Has the conversation on Twitter sparked a sense of division and a perception that Africans will not get along?

Will this conversation be ongoing? Will something be done to protect the borders of South Africa and bring people together peacefully sorting out any woes that this very continent is facing?

CASSPER NYOVEST TALKS ABOUT HOW AKA’S TWEETS ALMOST AFFECTED HIS SAMSUNG DEAL

Photo by: twitter (2019)

Cassper Nyovest took to Slikour’s couch to discuss his new album A.M.N(Any Minute Now), and both his professional and personal relationships. He opened up and answered questions that have been burning the masses, even answered the ones that the masses had no idea they wanted to know. The interview was trending at number two on Youtube and its views amounted to eighty thousand within seventy two hours of its release.

Cassper mentioned that AKA’s tweets where his rival(AKA)was swearing at his parents, referring to Cassper’s father as a “deadbeat father”, AKA went as far as insulting his manhood and sexuality. The CEO of Samsung branch in South Africa thought it was him posting the tweets after the news went viral. The elderly gentleman being unfamiliar with the social media space then saw swear words in Cassper’s name without understanding that AKA was coming at Cassper, But the misunderstanding was quickly resolved.

The Doc Shebeleza hit maker announced early last year that he had teamed with Samsung South Africa as their brand ambassador. The rapper’s deal was estimated to amount to R25 million. The tech giant were also the headline sponsor of Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up Royal Bafokeng annual concert.

“I was just just on the phone with his manager about the date of the fight” Casper said referring to AKA’s manger.

He went on to press that the fight is not about promoting his album but it’s indeed a personal thing

“What I want to do is fight” Cassper said twenty minutes into the interview.

Cassper Nyovest threw shots at AKA’S boxing skills saying that the videos he shares on social media showing the public his training are not boxing. He even showed a nine seconds snippet of him boxing to Slikour comparing it to AKA’s. He equated the rival’s boxing skills to those of the South African actress and film-maker, Connie Ferguson, and even associated AKA’s boxing with the adjective “sexy”.

“Connie Ferguson does that stuff” Cassper took a hit at AKA’s boxing skills.

Eight minutes into the interview the award winning rapper admitted that he was confused, disappointed and hurt by the Ricky Rick situation. The effects of their beef went as far as hurting Cassper’s mother as she took Ricky Rick as son of her own.

During the crafting of his second album, Refiloe, Cassper admits he was battling with heavy depression and anxiety, and that album is by far the hardest body of work he has had to complete. The depression and anxiety induced feelings of suicide and caused a number of sleepless nights for the public figure which influenced the song 1 on 1 on his new album, where he first opened up and spoke about his suicidal thoughts.
