Durban July 2019 – Hottest Looks From Your Faves

The hottest celebrity looks from the Durban July 2019 equestrian and lifestyle shindig




Oh, the drama of it all! Somgaga enchanted in a shimmery molten metallic Orapeleng Modutle suit. The emerald green monochrome get up came with a new blonde bob hairdo. He accessorised the look with those printed ankle boot heels. We lived. “Crush it all”, he captioned one of the snaps.

A summary of everything that worked at this year’s glitzy affair.


This year was a special Durban July for Miss Bonang. Her own brand of bubbly, House of BNG, made a sparkling debut in the marquees. And she made quite the entrance with a chic orange Gert Johan Coetzee dress with a plunging neckline and draped multi-coloured tussles.

Boity came to serve and all was received and noted with much awe. The TV host turned rapper delivered haute couture in striking purple. This asymmetrical faux mono boob is one in a slew of hits by Orapeleng Modutle this year.

She recently spoke about how show business is about creating a fantasy towards which we, mere mortals, aspire. Doesn’t she look like a dream in this dress? The stunning white bustier dress with a golden fringe is by Ryan Keys.

Never gets it wrong, does she? The new mother stepped out in a white puplum suit dress with a plunging neckline.


When it comes to male South African celebrities, mediocrity can reign supreme. But, Maps Maponyane didn’t appear on our Best Dressed Male South African Celebrities list for nothing. The 29 year old media personality showed up in a very sleek David Tlale suit with subtle prints and grandpa collars.

It’s always refreshing to see a rapper make an effort to switch things up a little bit. Cassper Nyovest led the pack this year in a debonair suit. We just loved that he cleans up good.

The same can be said for K.O, who recently opened up about the fall out of Teargas.

This green suit with sneakers represents his love for colour and streetwear. The green hair dye, along with the sneakers on cropped pants are all aligned with his “playa” attitude, which works.

A delight to seem him embracing the social scene a little bit more as well.

Inside the Star-Studded Season 2 Teaser for Young, Famous & African

Look at the material!




Young and Famous Netflix season 2

Today, Netflix released the official teaser for the second season of the hit unscripted reality series, Young, Famous & African.

This season sees the return of Africa’s most famous and fabulous, as they embrace life and love on the richest square mile on the continent. This time,  however, a few new faces promise to make their mark in Africa’s most elite group.

Enter Bonang Matheba, South Africa’s entertainment industry darling whose presence certainly ruffles a few feathers;  Fantana, Ghanaian-American rapper and all-round superstar who quickly makes her mark on the group and Luis Munana from Namibia, former Big Brother Africa contestant and entrepreneur extraordinaire who brings the heat from the onset. 

The all-star cast of season one returns to face a lot of unanswered questions like what happened between Diamond Platnumz, Andile Ncube and Zari Hassan after the chance encounters between the trio in Diamond’s home,  and what is the status of everyone’s friendships after many arguments, loads of drama, and a pot stir or two from Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai.  

Also worth looking out for is the appearance of model and socialite Sebabatso Mothibi, as well as the supermodel and actress, Rosette Ncwana, both of whom share a relationship history with Andile.

Given the drama and tension from the previous season, how does this play into the existing dynamic on the show?

Season two of Young, Famous & African launches only on Netflix on 19 May 2023 worldwide.

A First Look into The Real Housewives of Johannesburg S3!

Joburg, you are up! RHOJ is billed to make a splashy return 19 May.

After suffering a number of production delays that spanned years, and that one unfortunate canning of the lost season, the Real Housewives of Johannesburg will be making a comeback on 19 May, 20:30 on 1Magic.

As Quench previously reported, it looks like glam Queen Mpho Mops will be a no-show for the looming season. Hers was an explosive departure, which followed the damning allegations of infidelity she faced at the season 2 reunion.

Fans will, however, be delighted to hear that Lethabo ‘LeJoy’ Mathabo and Lebo ‘Jojo’ Mokoena will be returning as seasoned gold-carrying full-time cast members in season 3. The two look to continue where they left off in 2019.

Among other pressing charges, Lebo might have to explain the alleged giant plastic cake at her wedding to Johannesburg businessman Lebo Gunguluza, from whom she is now divorced. Viewers will likely get front-row seats into her new life.

LeJoy might have to spill on what happened on that one fateful night at the Durban July.

… Or not. Based on the cast reveal, the returning girlies might have to clock in.

There are fresh faces on the cast, which will likely shift the dynamics and overall direction of the popular franchise.

Mamus Koka, Marelli Bentley, Nicole Watson and Thobekile Mdlalose will all be making their debuts as the new line-up.

‘Asylum’ By Uncle Waffles certified GOLD in a Week

The viral sensation is running up the numbers with her autumn release.




Within 7 business days of its splashy arrival, Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape, ‘Asylum’, has reached gold status.

‘Asylum’ is Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape.

The 7-track project, which contains the blockbuster viral sensation ‘yahyuppiyah, shipped over 12 500 units in its first week. The official single’s delayed landing is likely to have helped the EP to run up impressive numbers.

Ms. Zwane recruited over 17 collaborators for the project.

After all, the song has been the darling of Tik Tok challenges around the world, many of which relied on the audio snippet being circulated without an official release.

Spanning just over 38 minutes in duration, the EP plays up to the disc jockey’s reputation for banging out addictive hooks with massive social media appeal. Working with 17 collaborators, Waffles confidently delivers her own take on Amapiano’s increasingly fluid soundscape.

The project arrives as the 23-year-old takes her tour to the US, where she’s covering venues in several states. This past weekend, Uncle Waffles made her debut at Coachella.
