This past weekend, a story broke about house music sensation Lady Zamar opening a rape case against musician ex-boyfriend Sjava.

Although the case was opened last November, media only got wind of it recently. The response to Lady Zamar’s allegations was ربما تحتوي الصورة على: ‏‏شخص واحد‏، ‏‏نشاطات في أماكن مفتوحة‏‏‏devastating, albeit not shocking. Multitudes of social media users launched attacks on the young woman, accusing her of being an attention-seeker and being hell-bent on destroying the career of the BET-award winning Sjava.ربما تحتوي الصورة على: ‏‏شخص واحد‏، ‏‏وقوف‏‏‏

I wish I could claim to be shocked by this response – but I am not. The script is so familiar that had the public’s response deviated from it, had people rallied behind Lady Zamar, I would have been utterly stunned.

I remember when sexual abuse allegations against Bill Cosby came out, multitudes of people rallied behind him, contending that he was a victim of a smear campaign by a white America that was deeply invested in destroying black men.

Mzansi not impressed by Zodwa Wabantu not social distancing

Zodwa Wabantu. Picture: Instagrams Zodwa Wabantu playing with her life?

Well, social media users certainly think so. This comes after the reality TV star posted pictures of herself out and about in Durban.

In one picture, Zodwa is seen shopping on Durban’s popular Dr Pixley Kaseme (formerly West Street) Street buying fruit from a street vendor.

Zodwa is seen not wearing a mask while shopping and is standing very close to the vendor.

She captioned the picture: “he smiles, I smile”.

In another picture, she is posing next to maskandi musician, Senzo Ntencane Zondi outside The Workshop, which is a shopping centre in the Durban CBD.

Although her Instagram followers commended her for supporting the informal sector, many asked her why she was not wearing a mask which was mandatory and why she was not practising social distancing regulations.

“Wearing a mask is very crucial” said one follower while another said, “Gal what’s the point of separating when your body is touching his body????”.

Another follower commented with, “Social distancing???? Not even a ting.”

This was revealed on Tuesday afternoon by the tattoo artist and Mihlali herself, who tweeted that she was “happy” about her new tiger tattoo on her calf.

Many social media users felt she was being irresponsible.

Shauwn Mkhize, Babalwa Mneno and Amanda du Pont have also been called out for attending parties during the lockdown and not observing the social distancing rules that the government have put in place to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Happy 50th birthday to Actress and Award winning Musician Candy TsaMandebele

When Candy ‘Tsa Mandebele’ Mokwena set up her independent record label in 2011, she knew she would one day walk away from a contract with a major label and start building her own empire – a dream come true, not only for herself but for all the women in the music industry.

Fast-forward to 2020, and the Limpopo-born vocalist is releasing her third studio album, Still Here under her own record label, Mosekedi Entertainment. After a successful 12 years with Kalawa Jazmee Records, the muso is releasing a 10-track album, which is currently available for pre-order.

Mokwena also cleared any rumours that she left Kalawa on a sour note.

She explains:“There is no bad blood between me and Kalawa. I sat down with Oskido and said ‘the time has arrived for me to grant another young artist an opportunity to learn and experience what I have acquired here at Kalawa. Oscar gave me his blessings and I will forever be grateful.”

“Still Here” is currently available on all digital music platforms.
