South African Celebs With Global PayCheques

Talk about making bank in several currencies! Take a look at South African born and raised celebrities who are doing it big globally.



We get it, Nonhle Thema lived in the US for very many years in her time, but hopefully taking a look at some of the most internationally celebrated South African born and raised personalities will not lead into another session of shade.



Stars like Chrissy Teigen have started harassing him

Besides boasting some really A-list snaps of himself with the world’s biggest Hollywood A-listers clinging on to him for selfies because they’ve mastered the art of mingling with potential just in case it blows up, Trevor Noah is actually a pretty big deal right now. He took over as the host of popular US TV show The Daily Show and his debut is in September. Check out the trailor for that HERE.

In addition to this massive payday for Noah, expect endorsement deals, hosting major award shows and of course, a high grossing comedy tour around the world. Get them, Trevs!



Sorry, but we still think it’s kind of random that she is from Benoni, of all places. And Benoni is pretty cool but to be from there is pretty rare. But then again she could have been from Magaliesburg. Anyway, she gave us all a mention when she became the very first South African to win an Oscar (Best Actress) back in 2004. Since then, Theron has remained one of the highest paid, and busiest, actresses in Hollywood. She is making so much bank, that girl!



They say where there is insane amounts of talent, there is a way. Don’t us ask who said it, though. DJ Black Coffee has become our freshest export. Although globetrotting musical experiences are nothing entirely new for the record producer, 2015 has proven to be the start of a new era. Not only is he already touring some of the biggest festivals globally, he scored himself a nomination as one of the world’s best breakthrough DJ, alongside big names like David Guetta, Avicci and Calvin Harris. Read more on that HERE. Currently, Coffee is nested in the Big Apple.


Candice Swanepoel is one of the world’s highest paid models

She’s our very mooi meisie! Swanepoel left SA to give it a shot and try gunning for a big modelling career in London back in the day. It worked. She struck gold by becoming one of the angels for Victoria’s Secret. Now, she is safely one of the world’s 15 highest paid models. 

But there’s no way the list ends there! stars like Arnod Volsoo (the surname gives it away, because Vosloorus!), Dena Kaplan and Dean Geyer are some really big deals in the Hollywood scene. Arno Castens and his band had their moment in London as well at some point. Pam Andrews moved to Europe a month ago, so she might be one to watch out for!

Did we miss your fave who could be doing big things we are sleeping on? Clap back on the comments section below.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

Inside the Big Brother Titans Premiere!

South Africa and Nigeria unite under Biggie’s roof.




Sunday, 15 February 2023, marks the roaring arrival of BBTitans.


The highly anticipated social experiment brings under Biggie’s roof housemates from both South Africa and Nigeria. And for 72 days, we will be splashed with the finest in South African and Nigerian swag, banter, romance and all the trappings of a fun-filled, dramatic and – we’d hope – an entertaining show.

A first of its kind, the social experiment assembles the most colourful personalities from the two nations to outwit, outplay and outsmart each other in a bid to get their hands on a massive bag, life-changing bag!

In addition to a number of lofty prizes that will likely be on the line throughout the season, the winner of the show will also be walking away, a whopping grand prize of US $100 000 (over R1,7 million) is up for grabs for the one who trounces his Housemates to charm audiences across the continent.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.

Fans of Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Naija in the diaspora are not left out as Showmax will stream the show in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and about 50 other countries.
