This week, we saw celebs take each other on. Sho Madjozi and Bonang Matheba squared off on social media and Ntsiki Mazwai dissed Basetsana Kumalo. Lesedi Matsunyane's biography interested our readers, a lotto winner bought himself a 2nd hand car and Zozibini Tunzi showed some love for her supportive parents.
Briefly.co.za readers showed a lot of interest in Lillian Arita Lesedi Matsunyane's biography this past week. More than 80 000 people wanted to know more about this beautiful actress.
She stole the heart of many South African TV fans by her sterling performance in The Queen. She is a typical example of the apple not falling far from the tree as she follows in the footsteps of her parents.
She is the daughter of Connie and Shona Ferguson who also star in The Queen. Her father is Neo Matsunyane, Connie's former husband and actor. Fans agree that she killed it in her first appearance. She may be busy behind the screens, but she has a place in front of the cameras too.
The lady in question wasn't sure how to feel about all this curiosity and attention.
The #BaseHottestMCs list has been trending for all the wrong reasons. A number of rappers, including Shane Eagle, AKA and Nadia Nakai have complained about it.
It was reported that AKA thought the entire list was trash. Sho Madjozi placed second on the list and was happy about it. She was dragged into the negativity when Bonang Matheba asked if she was even a rapper.
One can only wonder what possessed Queen B to shade another young female icon like that. At first, Madjozi responded by sub-tweeting a tweet she sent out in March.
The tweet read, "I don't answer that corny 'Is Sho Madjozi a rapper?' question. I just do my work."
A 42-year-old British man's life changed completely after he won £105 million, more than R2 billion, in the EuroMillions jackpot. Steve Thomson might not need to work another day in his life but he revealed that he was continuing with work.
According to the Daily Sun, Thomson said he decided to continue working because it made him "feel normal".
The lotto winner is also not splashing any money on flashy cars - which he dubbed "a waste of money". Thomson and his wife, 41-year-old Lenka, purchased a second-hand car.
According to Mirror Online, Thomson is struggling to comprehend how much has changed.
For the third time, a South African beauty has been crowned as Miss Universe - the title went to 26-year-old Zozibini Tunzi from the Eastern Cape. Zozi is a Cape Peninsula University of Technology graduate and has made Mzansi and her family super proud.
Her mom and dad, Philiswa Nadapu and Lungisa Tunzi, could not stop smiling after their daughter won the popular beauty pageant.
She showed them her thanks in a beautiful post that she shared on Instagram.
When Ntsiki Mazwai disapproves of something or someone, she'll let the whole world know. That is the case with her opinion on Basetsana Kumalo and a mock interview with Zozibini Tunzi, our Miss SA and the world's Miss Universe.
As reported on by The Citizen, the interview was actually part of the Presenter Search on 3 competition. According to some social media users, Basetsana was meant to be difficult to test Zozi and Daniel Mpilo Richards.
Ntsiki didn't approve of the way Bassie, who is also a former Miss South Africa, behaved towards Zozi and expressed her opinion quite loudly.
The iconic author and entertainment personality has since responded to the criticism, saying that the video was taken out of context and that she has nothing but praise for Zozi.
