Will Lindiwe and & Tumi’s ‘Twin Soul’ Relationship End in Tears?

Is this a ticking time bomb?



Their mother and daughter dynamic wouldn’t go down as typical.

After giving birth to Tumi many years ago, Lindiwe abandoned her daughter near a river, leaving her to be devoured by the wolves in the wilderness. Many years later, she murdered her father. But that was before Lindiwe found out Tumi is in fact the infant she threw away so that can be explained.

With Mohumi in the frame, we now know that her actual biological father is alive. He’s now in prison, after holding the whole family hostage before finding out, in an explosive moment, that Tumi is in fact his daughter. Imagine meeting your daughter for the first time while trying to mug her family at gunpoint.

Tumi is no angel in the whole thing. In recent episodes, Lindiwe found out that Tumi is responsible for the death of her late daughter Mbali. The truth came out after Tumi ran her mouth to Mohumi about tampering with the breaks of Lindiwe’s car some years ago, which resulted in the tragic death of Mbali. She’d been revealing to Mabutho that she’d sang the confession to Mohumi when Sbuda heard the conversation.


They didn’t know they were bugged on Lindiwe’s orders, who was listening in on Tumi’s private conversations to plot her next move in getting rid of Mohumi.

Now that Lindiwe knows her own daughter is responsible for the death of her other daughter, they are kind of square. They’ve both hurt each other unspeakably. It’s also quite clear that they have a lot in common, and that includes the killer instinct.

Instead of holding a grudge, Lindiwe has instead decided to forgive Tumi. She takes full accountability of how Tumi has turned out, blaming herself for her daughter’s hardened heart. Now Lindiwe realizes how her daughter is her “twin flame”.

But, it’s too simple of an end to the tensions for The River. With season 4 of the telenovela nearing, we are wondering if an explosive end to this season is in the works. After all, we are hearing some rumours of a main cast member reportedly on their way out from the show.

The River airs weekdays at 20:00 on 1Magic (channel 103), and on Showmax.

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.

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.
