Oros Mampofu Bags Major Role on Rhythm City

Published

Oros Mampofu

Blessings come in pairs for talented actor Oros Mampofu.

Having recently welcomed a bundle of joy in the form of a bouncy baby girl, Oros now welcomes his second blessing as a new cast member to Rhythm City, the fastest growing soapie in South Africa’s TV land.

RELATED: COULD A SOMIZI AND BONANG REALITY TV BE IN THE WORKS? 

Mampofu will make his Rhythm City screen debut on the 16th of May as the character of young Eastern Cape born Banele, a rural Xhosa man whose family relies on social grants to sustain their daily lives.

Oros Mampofu

Banele is fascinated by history, particularly African literature and it is this passion that sees his story unfolding after he secured a bursary to study at the Johannesburg Metropolitan University.

Banele’s story is that of trials; He is the first person in his family to go to university and that becomes both a great privilege and a massive responsibility as his family heavily relies on him for help.

Being the sole bread winner is no glitz and glam and Banele quickly finds himself working as a recycler in order to send money back home.

E! Entertainment Television has announced that one of the biggest stars on South African television, Anele Mdoda, will host its newest local production, Celebrity Game Night.

Joining her as team captains will be South Africa’s cuddliest comedian, Jason Goliath (Larger Than Life, Man In A Van), and gorgeously gracious actress and presenter, Ayanda Thabethe (Top Billing).

Together, they will bring audiences bucket loads of fun and laughs as they gather with a group of your favourite celebrities for an evening of raucous entertainment. The ten, one-hour episode series will begin production in Johannesburg this week and will premiere late 2019 on E! (DStv channel 124).

“I’m so excited to host Celebrity Game Night on E! and can’t wait for viewers to join the party! Hanging out with Jason, Ayanda and our top celebrity guests on my sofas is going to be hilariously wild. Let the games begin!” said Anele Mdoda.

“Be warned – this isn’t a typical game show. Joining Celebrity Game Night as a team captain and trying to wrangle a crowd of stars with Anele and Ayanda is going to be epically entertaining” commented Jason Goliath. “My team is going to have plenty of laughs – but more importantly, we’re also going to win.”

Celebrity Game Night is going to be the hottest A-list ticket in town” added Ayanda Thabethe. “If you’ve ever wondered how the rich and famous let their hair down and have a good time…this is the show for you! It’s going to be so much fun I don’t think it will feel like work.”

Published

on

Tropika Island of Treasure will be returning for a ninth season on SABC 3.

The reality competition show will be featuring six celebrities and six consumer contestants vying for their share of fame, fortune and a shared R1 million in the island paradise of Curaçao.

Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, feels like a little piece of Europe on the edge of the Caribbean with glorious hidden beaches, amazing onshore snorkelling and diving, and a wild undeveloped windward coast.

It’s a picture-perfect place to serve as the backdrop for a smooth 9th season of the hit show.

In addition to revealing the island for this season, Tropika has also just announced that auditions for #TIOT9 will take place entirely *online – a first in the history of the show, providing an opportunity for more people across South Africa to enter and stand a chance to win a spot on the island.

Anyone who is familiar with the show will know that a big part of what makes it as entertaining as it is, are the celebrities. In #TIOT9, viewers can expect to see the following familiar faces:

SIMPHIWE NGEMA

Simphiwe Ngema is a South African TV presenter and actress best known for her role as Thuli on the hit soapie ‘Muvangho’.

The 29-year-old star was born in Klipspruit, Soweto where her passion for the entertainment industry was ignited.

The star has recently explored her passion for music and released her debut single ‘Thola Khona’ under the name Quing Simz.

Simphiwe is excited to be part of the new season of Tropika Island of Treasure and looks forward to taking her fans on a smoooth adventure to the island of Curaçao.

KAY SIBIYA

Kay Sibiya is a presenter, model, MC and an aspiring businessman who aims to fuse his love for communications and entertainment into a formidable media establishment.

He first rose to fame as the co-host of SABC 1’s music magazine show ‘Sunday Chillaz’.

He went on to star in Uzalo, one of the most successful soapies in the country, where he played music producer Ayanda Mdletse, who was easily one of the most recognisable faces from the series.

Kay is also an avid traveler and is excited to be heading to Curaçao to explore everything the island has to offer.

NADIA JAPHTA

Famous for her hilarious Instagram videos, Nadia Japhta is one of the most exciting new faces in the South African entertainment space and has proven that, when done right, the power of social media can take you to new heights.

SIPHESIHLE VAZI

Entrepreneur and media personality Siphesihle Vazi burst onto the scene as the presenter of the hit magazine show ‘Selimathunzi’ and quickly became one of South Africa’s most loved TV personalities.

Siphesihle has also starred in an exciting new role as Mthokozisi Ntuli on SABC 1’s brand new local comedy-drama ‘Makoti’.

When not in front of the camera, you are more than likely to find the star at the gym. He is a fitness fanatic and is already preparing his mind and body for the brand new season of Tropika Island of Treasure.

The Levi’s x Stranger Things Capsule Collection Has Dropped

You’ll soon be clad in your fave Stranger Things reference.

For Autumn/Winter 2019, Levi’s partners with Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things on a capsule collection that will include product for both men’s and women’s.

Watch any movie or TV show from the 1980s and you’ll witness a decade awash in Levi’s. For contemporary proof of that, look no further than the Stranger Things series, which takes place during the 1980s. Since Levi’s was a major staple of 1980s fashion, it makes sense that the characters would regularly sport a wide array of Levi’s products.

Stranger Things Levis merch in South Africa

Working directly with the Stranger Things wardrobe team on their third season, Levi’s leveraged their extensive Archives to help round out period-correct costuming for a wide range of characters in the show.

The new season is set in 1985, a time when the Levi’s brand’s massive imprint on culture and everyday style was as significant as it is today.

RELATED: PUMA’S ALIEN OG SNEAKER LANDS IN STYLE 

The Levi’s design team also worked with the show’s costume designers to create special, authentically replicated Levi’s looks for two fan-favorites on the show: Eleven and Dustin.

Not only will these full looks appear in the show, they’ll also be available for purchase as part of this special edition Levi’s x Stranger Things collection. This July, you’ll be able to go into a store and buy complete, authentically recreated Levi’s looks worn by two beloved Stranger Things heroes.

Could really is 1985 all over again.

From 1 July, you’ll be able to go into selected Levi’s® stores and buy the Camp Know Where Ringer Tee worn by Dustin which will be an in-show look and in addition, there will also be a range of pieces that celebrate various elements of the show.

Tees and sweatshirts with Stranger Things graphics and phrases, jeans with hi-res character images, special edition Levi’s® sundries, like upside down patches and red tabs (a nod to the “Upside Down”, of course), and a one-of-a-kind Levi’s® Batwing tee that uses the Stranger Things title graphics.

Basically, it’s one of the most beloved shows on TV, celebrating one of the most beloved decades of the 20th century, teaming up with one of the most iconic brands in the history of fashion.
