We all re­mem­ber the con­tro­versy sparked by the leg­endary jazz mu­si­cian Hugh Masekela when he an­nounced that he was not pre­pared to take pic­tures with women who have weaves on. I was par­tic­u­larly very up­set be­cause I felt judged for hav­ing a weave, and this fits into this ridicu­lous nar­ra­tive that a wo­man with a weave is some­how less African. How­ever, it seems like things have changed now. A selfie of Bra Hugh and ra­dio pre­sen­ter Kuli Roberts with a weave on is do­ing the rounds on so­cial media. I also want a pic­ture, Bra Hugh! Please!


Ru­mours are do­ing the rounds that Cici, whose real name is Bu­sisiwe Th­wala, is back home with­out a job. Cici was 999 Music’s main artist and was the lead per­former at all the events or­gan­ised by the la­bel. Ru­mours started cir­cu­lat­ing after Arthur Mafokate an­nounced that he was clos­ing shop. Life in the Mzansi en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try is tough. One mo­ment you are on ev­ery stage per­form­ing, the next you are sit­ting at home with­out a job. Cici, if this is true, I hope you get back on your feet soon.


This time of the year al­ways brings a bit of drama when ra­dio sta­tions go through line-up changes. If Os­cars were given for the drama that usu­ally oc­curs, the top hon­ours would go to Metro FM. The de­par­ture of Glen Lewis and Unathi Msen­gana shocked lis­ten­ers. We thought that was a huge blow un­til Bo­nang Matheba also re­signed after her first show with Ler­ato Kganyago, say­ing that she was only in­formed that LKG was join­ing her as a co-host an hour be­fore the show. Di­neo Ranaka re­placed Queen B the very next day. This is stuff from the movies, I tell you!


This is a story that is al­ways dis­cussed when an artist dies in South Africa. I was ac­tu­ally wait­ing for it. After Joe Mafela’s funeral, ru­mours started cir­cu­lat­ing that he was earn­ing R1 200 per day at Gen­er­a­tions –The Legacy. The soapie has come out to dis­miss this ru­mour as noth­ing but fake news and I be­lieve them. R1 200 is not even a stan­dard call rate for a pro­duc­tion like Gen­er­a­tions. There is no way that Bra Joe, at his age and with his ex­pe­ri­ence would leave his house and go to work for R1 200. Let’s squash this one early.
