Every week we take a look at the week’s top celebrity news. This week is no different than other, its been a jam packed week and here’s what you need to know!
#TouchMyBlood drops and SA Hip Hop is happy:
This has to be one of the most anticipated albums to have been released. This project has been on the works for quite some time and it makes sense because the overall feel and melancholic tune of the songs, makes a solid and personal album.
Here’s what we know about the listening party:
It was star studded affair, with fast cars on display and red ambiance because, Touch My Blood! Besides the hip hop head guest-list Kairo was there, AKA’s mom as well as Dj Zinhle.
After listening to the album twice, this 16 track work of art, which marks his somewhat last offering, is melodic, personal and on some songs, it “cuts deep”. You & Me is a fan favourite, Daddy Issues II is an instant classic and Beyonce is what he went through in his previous relationship.
DJ Tira clears the air about his relationship with Mampintsha:
Its been confirmed, Dj Tira and Mampinshta’s brotherhood fell through the cracks and both parties are okay with that. In an interview with Pearl Thusi on Behind The Story, Dj Tira disclosed that they have “drifted apart, but he’ll always have love for him.”
This goes back when DJ Tira booked Babes Wodumo for Gqom In Concert and Mampintsha hiked up the booking fee. Before that there were rumours of dancers being poached from Mampintshas’ company to Dj Tiras’, it got messy.
Prediction? In under 10 years they might work on something together. Sometimes you do need some time apart.
Bonang Matheba will finally appear on Real Talk on 3:
Right after Azania Mosaka’s appointment as the show’s new host after Anele Mdoda’s resignation. Another reporter pointed out that Bonang’s interview will “interestingly be followed by Dj Zinhle’s,” further adding the sauce to that situation.
Lets not neglect the fact that this will be Bonang’s first sit down in years.
The interview is set to air on June 18th this coming Monday, hopefully she doesn’t go on an emergency trip to the Bahamas.
A win for Kim Kardashian-West:
After the whole worlds skepticism, Kim K-West has indeed proven every single person in the world wrong.
Conversations about the Kardashians going to the White House was in bad taste trended throughout the world, after she met with Pres Donald Trump to discuss Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender whose life sentence was commuted after 21 years in prison. This meeting resulted in Marie Johnson to be released, which is further testament to what Kanye said a while ago, where he said we should talk to the ones that do us wrong instead of dragging them and expressing hate towards them, lead with love. To move forward and find a better solution for everyone involved. Its no doubt that President Donald Trumps win sparked a whole new popular culture.
If the Kardashian-Jenner-West family gets involved more and more in politics, what do you think will happen in the year 2020?
