In the news this past week: the talent of a rapping school student stunned South Africans and DJ Zinhle asked her fans to donate appliances because they're just so expensive. Bontlefeela is showing how women can take on a male-dominated industry, and fans are certain Boity and Maps are dating. Zodwa Wabantu's former Ben 10, Ntobeko Linda, announced he will appear on popular soap Uzalo. What a week indeed.
South Africa's hip-hop game has grown in leaps and bounds, so a career as a rapper can potentially be a lucrative option.
A young boy revealed his ambition to make his mark in the genre as he showcased his rapping ability at school.
Thanks to the assistance of his classmates, the young man pulled off a freestyle rap performance that was caught on camera. After being shared via Twitter, Briefly.co.za noted that it went viral in no time.
To date, the video has been viewed more than 200 000 times and South Africans heaped praise on the young man.
Back in 2017 when Zinhle moved into her first home, the way she decorated it dropped jaws.
Zinhle likes the finer things in life but just kitchen appliances - thousands for something to warm your water, kante!
Being a self-proclaimed interior decorator and even having her own home brand, Zinhle knows a thing or two when it comes to decorating. Taking to social media, Zinhle expressed her stress levels over the price of kitchen appliances. Anyone got a kettle they not using?
Fans jumped to help a sister out. Sharing snaps of their “SMEG” appliances and “Lakhrusethe” pots, peeps really ran wild with this one. Gahahaha, the responses are too much! Check them out in the original story.
There's a somewhat derogatory saying that implies that a jack of all trades is a master of none.
However, a multi-talented Jozi-based woman is making a mockery of this theory. Bontlefeela is a beautiful young woman who is making her mark in the male-dominated taxi industry.
She takes pride in her hustle and markets her taxi expertise via social media. In fact, Bontlefeela's proven to be rather adept at the strategy based on her following, which has nearly reached the 10 000-mark.
Maps Maponyane and Boity Thulo - one of South Africa's favourite 'unofficial couples'. It doesn't matter if they're not dating, fans love seeing them together and 'shipping' them.
Whether there is truth to the rumours of their relationship or not, Maps and Boity do make a very cute couple. And she's not innocent in getting tongues wagging either.
Recently, the pair were taking photos at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel for the charity event Match in Africa and this sparked dating rumours yet again.
The fact that both wore blue kind of had peeps even more convinced. What's cuter than couples matching their outfits?
Zodwa Wabantu's ex, Ntobeko Linda, is done licking the wounds of his heartbreak. The couple caused controversy because of their significant age gap.
While Zodwa has moved on to a new man, Ntobeko is busy carving out his own career in entertainment.
Ntobeko has begun by accepting a small role on the popular soapie Uzalo. He told Daily Sun:
"I'm young and I want to explore more in life and grab any opportunity that comes my way. "I'm still new to this thing. I hope producers will see my talent and I'll get more roles."
Aside from acting, Ntobeko is also a keen photographer. He hopes to grow in both fields in the future.
