Ndalo Media founder and CEO Khanyi Dhlomo is one of the most inspirational women on the planet.

An overachiever in her professional career and business, Khanyi was an SABC prime time news anchor at just 20 years old, before becoming a True Love Magazine Editor at the tender age 22.

Some folks at QuenchSA were getting down to Pour It Up at that age.

Now one of the continent’s most successful businesswomen, Khanyi Dhlomo joined Anele Mdoda on Real Talk With Anele to discuss business, life and career.

Here’s a look at 5 life lessons we got that from that incredibly affirming conversation:

‘You don’t have to know the how, but you need to know the what.’ 

Adding, “the universe will move everything around you to create the how.” Often times, we get caught up in figuring out the specifics on how exactly are we to make things happen. Unfortunately, sometimes there is little evidence to support the realistic feasibility of the visions we have for ourselves. That, amongst many other odds we see belying possibility, sometimes digs up a bottomless pit of self doubt.

For Khanyi, moving with the flow of your life and being mindful of where it is you want to be is a good place to be. Things will fall in place!

‘Sometimes your dreams don’t come to you packaged the way you expect.’ 

While Khanyi knew since she was a young girl that she had intentions of one day working in the magazine industry, a world that intrigued and excited her so much even from early on, she could have never known some of the plot twists that placed her in a position to swallow her pride in the beginning, and be a ‘skivvy’, before she earned becoming True Love magazine’s youngest Editor at just 22 years old.

Khanyi’s first step into print industry came clad as a fashion assistant job with duties that included serving coffee to everyone and doing all the running around. Far from the glamourous world most sometimes think magazines are, she was taken aback by this.

However, as she would later learn, it turned out to be the preparation she needed to be able to step up to the next level of her career!

“It was the best preparation for owning the media company that I own now.”

“Our lives are all about the next level.”

And perhaps because of such experiences, Khanyi has learned that nothing in life is a waste, good or bad. She affirms that everything in life is meant to happen so that we may grow and move towards the direction of our purpose. Every level in our lives brings with it everything we need to go through to be able to move to the next level.

There is no next level without this level. So don’t be hard on yourself. Wherever you want to be, will unfold from where you are in the Now moment.

‘Come from a place of love.’ 

She says that at our core, we are all perfect beings. Mistakes may be made at the physical level, but the belief in the essential goodness of others is consistently actioned through kind acts of compassion in human interactions and how she approaches life.

‘Solve a particular need.’ 

Replying to a viewer’s question on what life lesson she has learned so far in business, Dhlomo urges entrepreneurs to understand what problem they are solving. Wanting independence is not enough to want to pursue and be able to stay in business. You want to be able to positively impact lives, because that “aligns you with the creative energy that governs everything that we are.”

In addition to being passionate, development, progress and moving things forward should be central to any approach to business.

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.

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.
