Wooooooozah weekend, AFCON FEVER!

The buzz around the country, around Africa infact, The Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). We are yet to see Bafana Bafana prove themselves on home soil. Highly criticized national team is yet to face another challenge. The team is set to put their boots to the test in the opening match on the 19th of January against Cape Verde Islands (never heard of them). We wish the men lots, plenty, infact ALL the luck they need. I still think Benny McCarthy would make a huge (not literally) difference in the team.

On a better note, prepare to have your mind scorched at the opening ceremony of the AFCON set to begin at 16h00 at the National Stadium in Soweto. Choreographer Somizi Mhlongo has been working hard on the dance sequences and is excited about ‘getting down’ African style.

Tickets are said to be selling at a slow rate. I, occasional soccer supporter tried to get a ticket on Computicket but failed. It seems like the purchasing process for the average person has really been converted to finding Pythagoras. We need something more like finding Nemo here Hellooooow. (Then they complain and say we don’t support our local team). Tickets are available at SuperSpars (really -___ they cant be serious).

The top four Countries to look out for (care to disagree if you may) include…. drum roll please…. drdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdr…. SSSSSouth Africa, Cape Verde, Tunisia and Ivory Coast (rooting for Drogba). Lets hope South Africa makes the cut, all the best for the boys or else another coach might just be fired *smh*

Put your clique where your mouth and name your favourite team and players for the tournament.

Hot on the Topic List




We start of the year with break-ups, make-ups, babies, babies and more babies. We are first inticed with Minenhle Dlamini and Itumeleng Khune’s break-up. We wait with battered breathe for the arrival of Amber rose and Wiz Khalifa’s child. Nonhle Thema tells the world about her bundle of joy. Lastly Rihanna has featured Chris Brown in a song called ‘nobody’s business.’

Sexy bombshell Minenhle Dlamini also known as Minnie has been dating one of South Africa’s eligible football players, Itumeleng Khune. There have been rumours of the couple getting married as the Footballer was spotted at Minnie’s home supposedly paying for Lobola. The football star who plays for Kaizer Chiefs and the South African soccer side had bought the curvaceous young lady a BMW on her 21st birthday (money talks baba). Soon to their separation, Minnie returned the car (what girl are you crazy). It has been confirmed that the couple has officially split, as Minnie had told the ‘Sunday Times Newspaper.’ Minnie has been known for keeping her personal life private and we most definetly respect her for that (big ups girl). Now the in-demand lady in single and ready to mingle as she tweeted about a ‘single ladies’ night out with her girls. As the brand ambassador for Jeep, and having associations with Motions hair products as well s the perfume brand fire and ice, the young 22 year old is set for many more endorsements to come. We wish her well in her endeavours and her career. Men are getting their c.v’s ready for the young independent woman.

Miss Amber Rose is set to be having a baby on the way with rapper, dope king, Wiz Khalifa. The soon to be mother has banned any weed smoking near the baby  (way to go Amber). Amber has showed off her belly bump to the public and looks like a bundle of joy. Allegedly to have dyed her hair black as a symbol of new beginnings for her and her new family? Maybe.We wish the couple all the best for the future and the little one to stay away from strip clubs, rappers and weed.

Queen of twitter outbursts Miss Nonhle Thema has publicised the arrival of her beautiful daughter. The former Channel O presenter has been through a rough patch, showcasing her rage on twitter. Her bitterness and childish behaviour resulted in her losing a few good deals in the entertainment industry. After the birth of her daughter, Phoenix Ivy Zime Thema , Nonhle’s whole world has taken a new form. She admits to being a hands on mom and wanting to be involved in all the aspects of motherhood. Though Laying low off the entertainment industry Nonhle has been spotted on the Nando’s add, famous for using controversial, hot topics in their advertising. Hoping the 31 year old has made peace with her ‘enemies’ and plans on making a comeback in the near future. No rapper rapper business please.

Young ‘ex’ lovers Chris Brown and Rihanna are said to be on good terms after their Kung-Fu wars. Rihanna has released her new album titled ‘unapologetic’. In the album she features Chris Brown in a song named ‘nobody’s business’ with lyrics such as ‘nobody’s business but me and my baby,’and ‘your love is perfection, you point me in the right direction’ (hehehe only they know what they’re on about. Are we sure the ‘couple’ is not a ‘couple’ again? I must say I cannot wait to see the video for this song. These two should just get on with it and be together already. We won’t say anything (shhhhh). This song is a ‘must know’ very hip and vibey lyrics and beats.
