Rikki Latest Girl to be Outed From Bachelor SA!

Another girl reaches the end of the road.



There’s plenty of fish in the ocean. But Rikki has caught nothing here.

A week after Pasha’s shocking departure from season 2 of The Bachelor SA, Rikky has become the next girl to bite the dust. The 34 year old beauty, who sought to woo the affections of Marc Buckner along with 22 stunning girls, has left a handful of hopefuls who are getting closer to their mission of being the season’s chosen lady.

Rikky’s spectacular red carpet entrance revved up the romance on the very first night of The Bachelor SA and her contagious smile had viewers all over rooting for her to win over dreamy Marc Buckner’s heart.

But on Thursday night, in a surprise exit, 34-year-old raved-haired beauty Rikki Brest didn’t receive a rose and was sent home at the shows tenth Rose Ceremony.

The stunning all-rounder who has a number of titles under her belt – TV presenter, drummer of a popular girl band, drum teacher, actress, DJ, MC and marketing lecturer – spent weeks at the mansion – patiently awaiting her turn to be wooed by Marc – but to her disappointment – the moment never came to fruition.


Rikki watched for weeks as her fellow housemates received their names on dates cards and enjoyed special dates to get to know Marc better. The constant waiting had Rikki eventually feeling frustrated and wanting to call it quits.

Rikki was invited to the second group date of the season along with five other girls, where they competed to beat Marc’s time on a skid course in a stylish Toyota Supra.

Although Gillian won the competition, Marc clearly wanted more time with Rikki, and chose her to spend extra time. The pair spent the rest of the afternoon, in the back of his cosy Toyota Hilux, getting to know each other better.

The date wasn’t sealed with a kiss, but there was a rose to sweeten the deal. Since then, the date cards didn’t roll in and Rikki was forced to make the most of her time with Marc at the Cocktail Parties, where most of their relationship developed, including some passionate kisses.


Marc convinced her that he was keeping her around for a reason, but a frustrated Rikki had had enough. Last week she expressed that she is not willing to wait forever, because she knows her worth.

This week, she was ready to reject a rose after being let down once again and her patience running out, “I really don’t want to be negative again. I don’t want to tell him the same thing again. He is 36-years-old and if he can’t hear what I am saying, then what is the point of repeating myself over and over,” she said.

During their last conversation at the Cocktail Party, she laid down her feelings to him for the last time: “I’m not going to beg, I’m not going to play games. If you wanted to spend time with me, you would have made a plan to do that,”.


Four beauts were invited to a thrilling group date. The challenge: To bungee jump off of the infamous Soweto Towers! Rikki was immediately relieved to not be invited, whilst Bridget, Gillian and Marisia were thrilled to spend more time with Marc. Jess.R on the other hand, was a little annoyed because she previously told Marc about her back injuries, and didn’t want to be the person who says no to something fun.


Clearly, Marc wanted to spend more time with his number one lady, regardless if she jumped or not! Marisia took the jump in her stride and enjoyed the exhilarating experience, Gillian literally took a leap for love, kissing Marc just before she went for it and Bridget had to pluck up the most courage to eventually get the job done. Jess.R didn’t end up jumping but did manage to steal some sweet kisses, during some alone time just before Marc jumped.


Elegant Mulesa seems to be right at the top of Marc’s mind recently. Last week, she was invited for one-on-one time, which was stolen by Marisia with her Wild Rose and at the Cocktail Party  and she won one-on-one time after winning the Lottostar “Bet-on-Love” Blackjack game. Despite having spent sufficient time with her, Marc invited her for yet another one-on-one date, which many of the girls thought would be for Rikki!

Mulesa had the privilege of preparing a meal with Marc, one of his favourite past times. They chatted and got to know each other better, and reignited the flame.

She also got a rose to put her mind at ease! After the date, Marc admitted: “The more time I spend with Mulesa alone, one-on-one, the more I can see that she is allowing herself to feel. She’s breaking down those walls very quickly. It’s different when there are other ladies around, but when it’s just the two of us, she’s very open and invested in this relationship,”. While Mulesa said giddily, “I feel very much at ease and very comfortable. And yeah, I do like him,”.


The girls played another round of “Never-have-I-ever”, where Jess.R felt yet again as a target, with the girls speaking about her as if she wasn’t even there. When Marc arrived, he immediately grabbed Bridget for a chat.

Then, Qiniso and Marc reached another level in their relationship, as they engaged in deep conversation about their families, moving away from the superficial conversations that he has been having with everyone else, which he really appreciated.

Gillian’s relationship has reached a very physical level with Marc, as they enjoyed a very intimate and sexy make-out session at the “smooch couch”. The two of them really got in there, and Marisia almost awkwardly walked in on them!

She got a chance with him later though, where Marc admitted that he’s getting shyer around her and he’s grateful to her for opening up. Jess.R was all smiles and excited to see and chat to Marc again, but was infuriated when Mulesa interrupted their time to get Marc to chat to Rikki.

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.

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.

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.
