    Bonang Matheba fans 'new love' flames on Twitter

    DJ Zinhle shot down rumours that she and AKA are back together, after a picture of her and the rapper hugging went viral on social media. However, AKA's other ex, Bonang Matheba, got tongues wagging on Twitter streets after she alluded to having a new man in her life. The media personality on Sunday tweeted:  "...all the kisses". The BForce quickly got to work trying to decipher what their Queen B was referring to, but it was Bonang's reply to one fan's comment that really got tweeps excited. One Twitter user decided that Matheba's cryptic tweet was in fact lyrics to a single she was about to drop. Matheba, however, quickly debunked his claim with a reply that made Twitter CSI pay attention.

Instead, like good wine maturing with age, the longtime romance of Llewellyn Jeneker and Cecilia Absolom blossomed into a fairy-tale wedding, which Pastor Manuel Benans conducted under a City freeway bridge on the Foreshore yesterday. Adding to the romance was a perfect-fitting wedding dress worn by Cecelia and given to her by benefactor Jill Jeftha for the event, which had all the trimmings of a princely wedding - with over 100 guests, mostly homeless, blaring music and a feast of refreshments. Jeftha said: “I
