The ‘Real Housewives of Durban’ Finally Premieres on Showmax!

Open your purse!



The highly anticipated season one premiere of the Real Housewives of Durban has finally landed on Showmax, and we were never ready. Suddenly I want to move to the most affluent parts of Durban and sip on bubbly from my potch overlooking the ocean.

A Rolls Royce and a Bently parked outside wouldn’t hurt either.

We dream it, Sorisha Naidoo lives it! The premiere episode found the stylista inviting the ladies over for a diwali dinner, which ended with one hell of a shocker.

Sorisha Naidoo, a former Miss India South Africa, imports beauty products through her company SSBO and is married to billionaire businessman Vivian Reddy.

As a way to get to know the other women, and educate them about her culture, Sorisha decides to host a luxurious Diwali dinner party at her beautiful home in Umhlanga. And what better way to start off the season than by preparing a fabulous event while showing her support towards a fellow cast member’s business?

In preparation for the party, Sorisha hires Kgomotso Ndungane’s events and floral business, Oak Celebrations. “My plan for Diwali is to have it at home,” says Sorisha. “I think my first point of call would be Kgomotso because she is an amazing events planner and she would be able to advise me further and tell me how we can manage the entire event.”

In the spirit of supporting each other, Kgomotso, who is married to former Springbok Odwa, continues the trend and hires fellow housewife Annie’s dance agency, LeopardPrint. “I am so honoured to be part of this cast of beautiful, smart and strong-minded women,” says Annie, who is planning her white wedding to Durban businessman Kgolo Mthembu, and also owns Durban’s luxury beauty salon Annaesthetic, as well as an events and marketing company. “Each woman has taught me so many things about business, growth, womanhood and how to be successful in your marriage.”

From the looks of things, all is aligned for a night of splendour and glamour – even if neither Kgomotso nor Annie have ever celebrated Diwali before, and some of the women are sceptical about vegetarian cuisine…



Sorisha has invited her friend Ayanda Ncwane, the CEO of Ncwane Communications, president of The Africa Gospel Awards, and the widow of gospel legend Sfiso.

While most of the “housewives” know each other, not everyone has met the surprise visitor who accompanies one of the guests. Who exactly is Nonku Williams, and why does she seem to know more about Ayanda than Ayanda knows about her?

New episodes land every Friday, with the second landing on 5 February, the third on 12 February, and the fourth episode on 19 February, when we will meet the show’s sixth “housewife”, Nonkanyiso Conco, who owns a beauty brand Laconco Naturals.

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.

Inside the Big Brother Titans Premiere!

South Africa and Nigeria unite under Biggie’s roof.




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.
