In a recent Instagram Live, Babes Wodumo spoke about the pressures of black tax and constantly being judged by society. In the 12 minute long live video, Durban socialite Tha Simelane chats to the singer who looked and sounded inebriated.
At the start of the video, Babes, who is with her friend, is seen playing with her breasts in front of the camera. A shocked, Simelane covers his mouth in dismay before starting the chat with Babes.
During the conversation, the two chat about things like the pressures of black tax and all the other things she has become responsible for in her household; her music career and other artists and always being judged by people for being intoxicated.
She revealed that she had to build her family a house and said that she hates how people “don’t understand what she had to go through” and the only thing they know is to judge her.
Then things took a turn and she started to cry.
Simelane goes on to tell the “Wololo” star that he “loves her and that she mustn’t die”.
He said that she must pray that “God doesn’t kill her”.
When the live session ends, Simelane says to his viewers: “She won’t change. Babes won’t change. I watched her use cocaine in front of so many people. She won’t change.”

The cheerful and upbeat singer, Moonchild Sanelly has revealed she’s an emotional person when in a relationship and is known to sometimes tear up.
Taking to Twitter, Moonchild shared that she mostly cries in private when she’s in a relationship, but always puts on a brave face when around people.
“Saddest thing about me in relationships I cry in private a lot, in face value I’m hard AF! So no-one thinks anything makes me cry because they can and I don’t! Crying is a strength! Don’t ever undermine someone who can cry, unless it’s emotional blackmail! Respect tears.”
Though she may have an emotional element to her when in the name of ‘love’ earlier this year Moonchild shared a spicy message for her haters and everyone who has ever disrespected her.
This is not the first time Moonchild has demanded respect. In October she said she would continue to show off her booty whether people liked it or not.
This was after the dancing queen shared a video of her assets being covered with drinkingyoghurt.
DJ Maphorisa has shut down all suggestions of ever collaborating with artist Prince Kaybee, after fans mentioned it wouldn’t be a bad collab — apparently so because he believes Kaybee is not in his league.
The request for a collaboration was made by tweeps who reasoned that the two talented musicians needed to put their differences aside for a greater cause, but according to DJ Phori, Kaybee needs to make about 40 hit songs before Maphorisa can even consider working with him.
“He needs to make at least 40 hits, he is a small boy,” Phori said.
Maphorisa made it clear that he wasn’t about that life.
The whole world lent their voices to the #BlackLivesMatter movement that has been trending worldwide since the death of an unarmed African Black American man, George Floyd, and when Mihlali took to her Instagram to do the same and sharing how she felt on the topic, one of her followers issued her a warning.
According to the follower, she believes that Mihlali is jeopardising her opportunities to make money by being vocal about social matters.
Influencer Mihlali Ndamase did not mince her words when she shut down the user on Twitter who asked her via the DM’s not to comment on the black lives matter movement or the death of black people and sis wasn’t impressed at all!
“I will not be silent about the killing of my people. Where one door closes many will open, so if any brand does not want to be associated with me after this so be it, at least I will lose “a bag” knowing that I wasn’t silent during this time, because silence will not protect us,” Mihlali said.
The vlogger added that being silent at a time like this would be a personal regret.
“I would hate to look back and recall only posting aesthetics when my people were being killed and treated unfairly. So do not tell me about being quiet,” she went on to say.
Recent reports announced that Sjava has become the latest big-name artist to part ways with Ambitiouz Entertainment, following in the footsteps of several other musicians who had a public fallout with the record label. He said that he’ll be forever grateful for the record label giving him an opportunity and platform when no-one else did.
The rapper released a statement on Tuesday via social media, thanking the label for the opportunities it gave him. He said while there were differences between him and the label, there was no beef as they were parting ways amicably.
Earlier this month it was reported that the artist was unhappy with the label, but was still bound contractually, for some time to come, but a few months ago Sjava re-released his EP ‘Umphako’ under Next Level Entertainment.
Other artists including Amanda Black, Priddy Ugly, Fifi Cooper, Saudi, A Reece and most recently Emtee also dumped the label.
Menzi’s fans flooded Twitter under the hashtag #PrayForMenziNgubane after Ilanga newspaper reported that he had been hospitalised and was in a critical condition.
On Tuesday, fans woke up to panic after it emerged that Menzi had apparently fallen ill. The actor’s family issued a statement, confirming he was at home recuperating and asked fans not to panic.
“I would like to confirm that my husband is receiving family support and recuperating after doctors were concerned about his health,” said Sikie Ngubane.
Menzi’s family said they were concerned that his condition was exaggerated and appealed to South Africans to refrain from spreading the news.
“The family is also aware that due to the spread of this inaccurate and unverified news, his fans have even gone as far as sending their messages of his speedy recovery on social media, spawning an unwarranted social media panic. We understand their concerns and support for Menzi, but as the family, we appeal to South Africans to refrain from spreading news that has not been verified and confirmed by the family.”
“To this end, we wish to continue as the family to offer him the support he needs following his recent visit to the doctors. It is this visit that has been grossly exaggerated by newspapers and social media users,” read the statement.
Menzi’s family went on to thank his supporters for their well-wishes and asked them to respect their privacy during this time.

AKA is clearly a man in love, and his lyrics say as much as well as his recently posted picture with him and his new flame on the gram.
“I’ve been thinking ’bout you every twenty-one days/ It’s kinda ironic twenty-one is your age/ I needed somebody who can give me my space” his lyrics go on Cross My Heart.
After realising one of AKA’s latest tracks might be a dedication to his 21-year-old love interest, people had so many questions they had to get off their chests. AKA has always rapped about the women in his life and has had his girlfriends feature as the leading ladies in his music videos before. Remember Queen B in The World Is Yours?
So AKA’s fans wanted to know if he would have his current girlfriend make an appearance in the music video for Cross My Heart.
“Not a chance. She’s very private. First non-celebrity I’ve dated since uhm 2008,” AKA said.
Looks like Supa Mega finally found the one who understands what he needs.
Despite trying to keep it a secret, the dots were quite easy to connect that Nandi Mbatha and Naak MusiQ are in a romantic relationship. The actress shared a photo of herself with a man whose face wasn’t clear in the photo and further muted her comments.

Naak MusiQ has also commented on Nandi Mbatha’s photo recently when she posted on her instagram wearing a bikini , asking “Intombi kabani le?”
Nandi is one of the brand ambassadors for clothing label, Quiteria Atelier, allegedly the lovebirds met at the QA studios. Upon contact with Mpho, he confirmed to Sunday Sun, that he was indeed in a romantic relationship with the actress and didn’t care who she dated before him.
