When it comes to fight­ing spirit, you’re fully armed this week. As you be­come more will­ing to try any­thing new, so­lu­tions to old prob­lems sur­face. Just don’t be so wrapped up in your own af­fairs that loved ones feel ne­glected. Ex­pect a week of acute self-ques­tion­ing as thought pro­cesses un­dergo a steady but deep psy­cho­log­i­cal change. A change of at­ti­tude, too, to­wards sib­lings and friends. Some may find that their in­tu­ition is height­ened. You can fi­nally let out that heart­felt sigh of relief. It’s been a trau­matic time for you and the world which you so dearly cher­ish. This week is all about for­giv­ing and for­get­ting. I GUESS I should start by wish­ing you a great start to 2019 and my hopes that it will be a good year.

But I just re­cently re­alised that peo­ple find it so easy to roll their eyes while you wish them all the best for the year. A friend sent a broad­cast text, say­ing that we can’t wish each other a great year ahead af­ter Jan­uary 5. Not that any­one lis­tened to him, but it’s clearly a thing for many peo­ple, which I find re­ally strange.

Any­way, here’s to you good one.

This is prob­a­bly go­ing to be one of the busiest years in re­cent his­tory. We have the South African gen­eral elec­tion this year, which will re­sult in a lot of changes with re­gards to how Par­lia­ment is go­ing to look. There are go­ing to be more young peo­ple vot­ing for the first time, whose pol­i­tics dif­fer from their par­ents, and I’m cer­tain that will change how our gov­ern­ment is go­ing to look.

Abroad, we will have the first bi-racial Bri­tish royal baby when Meghan Markle gives birth in April. While I’m hav­ing a

ex­cited for her, I’m not look­ing for­ward to the hor­ri­ble things peo­ple will be tweet­ing about her and the baby, so I hope she will have a solid sup­port struc­ture around her mak­ing sure she doesn’t read what the haters are say­ing. Ser­ena, Priyanka, Oprah and Amal need to have her back at all times.

Then we have Ri­hanna re­leas­ing her new mu­sic, some­thing her fans have waited for in what seems to be an eter­nity. It’s been three years since the re­lease of Anti and it’s time for new mu­sic.

It’s also the 10th an­niver­sary of Michael Jack­son’s death this year, so I’m ex­pect­ing a lot of doc­u­men­taries, books and new mu­sic about the epochal mu­si­cian.

We all know how Hol­ly­wood loves a re­boot, so I’m cer­tain some iconic TV show or film will be re­done this year. BET is al­ready re­mak­ing the cult favourite rom-com Boomerang. Halle Berry, who starred in the film, is ex­ec­u­tive-pro­duc­ing the TV com­edy along­side Lena Waithe.

And for SM this year? Well, ex­pect some re­ally strik­ing pic­tures, in­ter­est­ing sto­ries, more in­sight­ful fea­tures and, as al­ways, a fun read that can be en­joyed by the whole fam­ily.

You are al­ways wel­come to email or tweet me with your feed­back on the sto­ries we have and sug­ges­tions on what you would like to see in these pages.

Have a great week! @Buh­le­bonga
