Bonang Matheba and Somizi thrilled fans when on Monday, they appeared to have laid their long enduring feud to rest.

South Africa’s leading media personalities were smiling from ear to ear as they exchanged warm hugs and posed for pictures at Bonang’s House of BNG launch. It’s been at least three years since the two, who once playfully dubbed themselves ‘twins’ during the most Instagrammable days of their friendship, have appeared in a picture together.

The reunion continued on Tuesday Queen B shared an I.G story of flowers she received from Somizi.

While it remains unclear what really triggered the rift between the former buddies in the first place, both parties have spoken out on a few occasions about how they’ve felt wrong by the other. In her 2016 bestseller, From A To B, Bonang Matheba alluded to betrayal that she found hard to forgive.

And now that it seems all of that is in the past, fans are wondering whether Monday’s good spirited ‘reunion’ will make it’s way to Somizi’s Living The Dream, and Bonang’s upcoming season of Being Bonang.

Both of them are progressively filming upcoming seasons of their hit reality shows, and it only makes sense they would want to include a burying the hatchet bit to bolster storylines.

Legend Manqele of BarLeader, the production company behind both reality shows, was present and very excited to showcase Bonang and Somizi’s reconciliation on his social media. There are thumbs to be held.

Meanwhile… 

Bonang, who’s currently “apartment hunting” in New York City, has been taping another reality show, Bonang: Coming To America. The show will chronicle Mo’gerl’s bid to forge her inroads into the States, as her brand goes international. The Queen B has been treating fans to glimpses of her time in the Big Apple on her social media feeds.

Somizi, on the other hand, has his hands full as he preps his wedding to fiancé, Mohale. The two’s nuptial is set to have scored them a million rand deal for a wedding special, which is set to air on Mzansi Magic. There’s no word on whether or not the special will air as a stand alone, or be part of Living With The Dream, just yet.

South African TV audiences first encountered her through the telly when she first appeared on Generations; The Legacy in the not-so-distant past. Four years later, Thuso Mbedu has paced through hoops to become the first South African actress to score a leading role in an American series!

Mbedu has been picked to star as the lead character on Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of The Underground Railroad. The actress will be taking on the role of Cora – the main character in the critically lauded novel.

The 27 year old’s history of flirtations with Hollywood dates back to 2018 and 2019, when she received International Emmy Award nominations for her stellar portrayal of Winnie on Mzansi Magic drama series – Is’thunzi. Although she didn’t bring any of the prestigious gongs home, there’s no lack of evidence that her star has now sky rocketed to global horizons.

The Underground Railroad tells the story of a young Cora’s journey as she negotiates her way in the pre-war South, according to Variety. Following her escape from a Georgia plantation, she discovers the existence of a railroad with a secret network of tracks and tunnels.

“My thumb and neurons are failing me right”, jotted the actress on her Instagram. “So I’ll just do as most South Africans do when this happens: I GOT THE JOB!!!”

Everyone’s Talking about DJ Sbu’s Nipsey Hussle Speech

DJ Sbu at Nipsey Hussle's memorial

He’s definitely never been afraid to step outside of the convention to make a splashy point.

From plugging his energy drink onstage at the 2015 Metro FM Music awards (and being suspended shortly after), to faking a Forbes Africa cover (which reportedly resulted in legal action), it’s quite obvious that DJ Sbu has mastered the art of shocking. Unprovoked.

The multi hyphenate media personality and entrepreneur grabbed more headlines when on Tuesday, he shared a clip in which he addresses the crowd at Nipsey Hussle’s memorial gathering in Los Angeles, California.

In it, Sbu introduces himself as the ‘ambassador for Hip Hop music’. And more… so much more.

“My name is DJ Sbu. I come all the way from Johannesburg in South Africa. I’m here as an ambassador for Hip Hop music and the culture in the entire African continent. I represent musicians from the whole continent”, says the Sbu in the clip, which does not feature the rest of the speech.

While some have made fun of the questionable claims in the speech, some have commanded the successful entrepreneur’s guts.
