1. Thug tries to snatch phone but gets grabbed and driver keeps driving
A thief bit off more than he could chew as he was caught red-handed, beaten and dragged as the driver of the vehicle kept driving.
Twitter user, @Yourwavgod, shared a very interesting video of a thief on the receiving end of mob justice. The video included the following caption: “Somewhere in Africa, this guy tried to snatch a phone quickly from a passenger in this car, but unfortunately they all grabbed his hand. Now they are driving him to another country.”
The footage lives up to its description as the thief is seemingly stuck and dragged along with the car.

2. Cassper’s #YatlaSatane lands him in hot water with fellow rapper L-Tido
Cassper Nyovest is caught up in beef again after a hashtag he started on social media ended up with him suggesting that JR's career sunk. L-Tido took to social media to drag Cass for his comment.
It started innocently enough when Cassper responded to a follower on social media who commented on JR’s currently slow career.
Cassper said that JR was amazing but implied he wasn’t anymore and added the shady #YatlaSatane hashtag. L-Tido, a close friend to JR, did not take the comment lying down. In a now-deleted tweet, the rapper accused the Gusheshe rapper of always firing shots at AKA because he has "nothing to offer" with his music.
He went on to diss Cassper’s current album Short & Sweet. Cass continued using the hashtag but poked fun at those who were offended by it in a series of memes.
He said that the hashtag wasn't targeting anyone specifically and was just about how the devil ruins things. The rapper seems to be making more enemies than friends these days.

4. TK Dlamini opens up about the true reason behind his Uzalo exit
Loyal followers of Uzalo are going to miss seeing Mastermind on their screens. The actor behind one of their favourite characters, TK Dlamini, has decided to walk away from the show.
Many of the show's actors have called it quits and cited unprofessionalism as the reason, as reported on by ZAlebs. Financial problems have also been named as the reason we don't see some of our favourite characters anymore.
TK decided that he didn't want to be part of the show anymore because it just didn't feel right anymore.
According to a report by TV Guide SA, TK also said he wanted to grow, but Uzalo's production environment changed.
Briefly.co.za learned that the actor also said the cast and crew doesn't have any bonds, they're just there to finish their work and get paid.
It doesn’t feel like we’re a family, it feels like everyone is just there to get a pay check... and I can’t work in a place like that, because I’m not doing this for money, I do it for the love of the industry. I hope they treat the new cast members, better than they treated us.
