A new addition to this year’s festival is “The Championship Ball”, a collaboration between Le Grand Ball and Vogue Nights Jozi. Vogue Nights Jozi and Le Grand Ball aim to redefine and reimagine the nightlife scene in Johannesburg by creating safer spaces for queer, trans and non-binary bodies through ballrooms, which push the boundaries of music, fashion and dance.

These joint movements serve as a springboard for queer excellence, performance and gives a platform for bodies that are usually side-lined in regular spaces in the city.

The Championship Ball will bring together houses from Johannesburg and all around the country to compete in a runway presentation across four categories.

Joburg based House of Diamonds and House of Rêve will be joined by a 3rd house, the winner of the upcoming Le Grand Ball. The winning house will walk away with a cash prize and crowned as the grand champion.

Priced between R600 daily or R1100 for general weekend pass, to the limited VIP R2900 tickets, tickets can be bought here.

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.

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.
