• Nigeria: Why Davido's Fans Mi Should Be Banned From Being Aired in Nigeria

    The influence entertainers continue to have on Nigerian youths while promoting negativity in their movies and music is becoming visible with the release of Davido's song, Fans Mi featuring Meek Mill. ANTHONY ADA ABRAHAM writes on why the song and any other that promotes violence and promiscuity should be banned. It was hailed as a welcomed idea when the news broke that multi award-winning music superstar, Davido premieres, perhaps, the biggest single of 2015 which has been very well-anticipated and features Maybach Music Group hip-hop/rap act from Philadelphia, Meek Mill with HKN's lead act who recently graduated with second class honours in Music.

  • Nudism in full swing in KZN as opposition backs down

    After bringing in police to arrest nudists when the province's first legal nudist beach opened in April, threatening to lodge a complaint with the public protector and appeal to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality to change its approval, the opposition group has "vanished". The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday. The group's spokesman, the Rev Mike Effanga, could not be reached for comment.

  • New Hilux and Fortuner 'swop faces' - IOL Motoring Special Features

    Has Toyota struck the right design chord with its redesigned Hilux and Fortuner, due in South Africa next year, or would they look better wearing each other's faces? Chin likens it to that '90s film 'Face/Off' where the lead characters, portrayed by Nicolas Cage and John Travolta, swapped faces. The Fortuner certainly looks more macho wearing its bakkie-sibling face, and dare we say it would strike a better chord with the current version's fan base?

  • Floyd Shivambu in papgeld drama - SundayWorld

    Morake allegedly dumped Shivambu because "he is stupid and lacks respect, leads a fake life" and "lied about breaking up with his ex-fiancee", former SABC2 weather presenter Andile Masuku when he dated her. Morake, who said the EFF Parliamentary chief whip, earns close to a R1-million a year, pleaded with the Randburg Maintenance Court on Friday to dock over R2000 from his salary because he was a dead beat dad. Shivambu's alleged failure to support the child is likely to project his party in a negative light as it was the only organisation in parliament which objected to the Maintenance Amendment Bill. The bill, which has been sent to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) for concurrence, will see maintenance dodgers blacklisted.
