Theo Kgosinkwe and Vourne tie the knot

Halala Mr and Mrs! Theo Kgosinkwe and Vourne On Tying The Knot

Theo Kgosinkwe put a ring on model Vourne Williams’ finger at her 26th birthday dinner, and a year later they made it official.

Theo Kgosinkwe and his bae Vourne celebrate their union after the couple officially got hitched over the weekend. They were married in a small and intimate ceremony, thanks to Covid-19, and said they planned to have the big celebration in 2021.

They both shared snaps of their big day and said they couldn’t wait to be husband and wife.

“Due to Covid-19, Vourne and I had to postpone our wedding celebrations until 2021, but we couldn’t wait to be husband and wife. Yesterday I married my bestie. We can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends next year,,” Theo said in an Instagram post.

Since the end of his 15-year marriage to Rose, with whom he has two children, Theo has tried to keep his personal life far away from the spotlight.

Theo and Vourne got engaged a little over a year ago at Vourne’s 26th birthday dinner.

The man, who is clearly a romantic, asked the 26-year-old model the big question while serenading her, accompanied by an acoustic guitarist.

The couple have been living their best lives together, also worshipping and blogging together. They recently beat Covid-19 as a couple.

Their friends, family and fans flooded their timelines with messages of love and well wishes.

“My brother and friend Theo married his friend and love of his life yesterday, the ever-so beautiful Vourne. at an intimate and beautiful ceremony. Congratulations. Love you both,” Nhlanhla said.

Check out how happy they look in their wedding snaps below.

MinNie Dlamini Slammed for calling Bantu Knots “ghetTo”

When TV personality Minnie Dlamini took to Twitter to show off her new look, the last thing she probably expected was to get heat which resulted in her topping the Twitter trends list.

The star sparked outrage and fierce debate on Tuesday night when she posted a pic of her wearing her hair in Bantu knots.

She told fans that “just because it’s ghetto, doesn’t mean it’s not fabulous”.

She had also posted the same snap on Instagram alongside the caption: “I can go from lady to ghetto in a second #BantuKnots.”

While some, including Idols SA judge Unathi Nkayi and singer Kelly Khumalo, were all for the look, others dragged Minnie for her use of the word “ghetto” to describe the hairstyle.

They argued that the style was beautiful and worn by women around the world. They argued that calling natural hair “ghetto” confirmed “the stereotype that black culture is inferior and barbaric”.

Fans flooded the TL with pictures of their own Bantu knots.

Minnie has not responded to the backlash.

Simphiwe Ngema has found love once more and it’s beautiful to see

Simz Ngema & other widows deserve joy as well.

In August 2017 Simz became a young widow after her husband, Dumi Masilela, was shot and killed in a botched hijacking.

We all watched Simz go through an unimaginable amount of pain caused by a tragedy so sudden and so brutal that the thought of healing and being restored seemed far-fetched.

We watched her grieve and go through a number of painful firsts.

First birthday without him, first anniversary, and all the other moments she didn’t have the strength to share.

I was happy to hear that Simz and her new boyfriend Tino Chinyani are expecting. The pregnancy reveal was done by both the love birds on a post on Instagram where Simphiwe “Simz”was in front of a bright yellow background with flowers around her and her baby bump visible.

Many others like myself are so happy to finally watch her glow, win, smile, find love, conceive a child and just be restored.

Simz deserves every bit of happiness the world has to offer. God knows she’s had her share of pain.

With that being said, from what I can tell, Tino has a lot of people to answer to if he even thinks about breaking her heart.

Bonang Matheba is on cloud nine after broadcaster SABC reported that her latest reality show had broken viewership records.

A Very Bonang Year, based in part on her time in the US last year, debuted on SABC1 last weekend, reaching more than 1.8 million viewers.

“We are excited to announce that A Very Bonang Year reached a record-breaking 1.86 million viewership in its first episode of broadcast. This is unheard of for any broadcast platform in SA for a celebrity-driven reality show genre and at a time when SA viewers have more reality TV content to choose from,” Zandile Nkonyeni, Head of PR: SABC TV Channels, said in a statement.

She said the channel had avoided celebrity reality shows until now and was happy to see their decision to acquire Bonang’s show pay off.

The show was also a huge hit online, trending for two days straight. According to a statement from Bonang’s team, it reached more than 1.3 billion impressions on social media.

“The extraordinary amount of hashtag impressions — number 1 trending hashtag in SA over Saturday & Sunday — emphasised the ‘B Effect’, with even more hashtag impressions than the 1.1 billion reached during the launch of The House of BNG last year,” they claimed.

Bonang was just as excited at the news and told fans it was “madness”.
