The main reason my wife is going through the depression is because of me. I am the main reason she’s been depressed for so long.”

“It all started from the beginning of our marriage. I wasn’t a good person. I was a very bad person, very, very bad. I did a lot. I’ve been emotionally abusive, and it took me a while to see that. The one thing that’s sad is I keep doing it. I am not fixing; I keep making things worse. I am doing this on social media because she’s been attacked by people on social media, journalists, ” he said

“The main reason my wife is going through her depression…I should say that all of it, is because of me. I am the reason she has been so depressed for so long and the one thing that’s the worst is I haven’t been there for her. I was emotionally and mentally abusive to her,” he said at the time.”

Babes Wodumo sends a love voice note to Mampintsha

Babes Wodumo is very much in love with her late husband Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo who died in December 2022.

In a recent post on social media, the Gqom singer shared a voice-note sent on WhatsApp to the father of her child, Sponge Wodumo.

Babes could be heard wailing and crying heavily as she told her late husband about how much she love him.

Speaking in her home language; IsiZulu, the singer said: “I want you to know one thing, I love you and I will always love you baby. I know you didn’t like it when I cry, I love you though. I know you won’t hear this voice note, but.”

The post comes a few days after she celebrated the posthumous birthday of the Big Nuz member.

“Grief will make you look like you are losing your mind, one day you are ok the next day you are fighting deep waves of emotions. We understand you , we get you,” a follower wrote in the comment.

“Let no one ever rush your healing & how you heal. God cover you with love Sis,” Refilwe Modiselle wrote.

Months ago, Babes Wodumo was rumored to have moved on and now in a new romantic relationship with the former Amaroto member, Zuma.

However, the two musicians are mute about the rumors as they are focused on their lives

Simz Ngema says she doesn’t mix grieving her ex and loving her current partner

Simphiwe Ngema recently opened up about how she grieves the death of her late husband Dumi Masilela while in a romantic relationship with her baby daddy, Tino Chinyani.

The South African singer and businesswoman talked about this while consoling Babes Wodumo who mourns the death of her husband, Mampintsha.








Taking to the comment, a fan asked how Simz copes and the star said she does the same thing Wodumo does.

“I do what she’s doing. Cry, text him, watch videos. It’s not something that goes away. You just learn to live with it. Days are different, some days you cry like it happened yesterday and Special days are hard (birthdays, anniversaries) 7 years later and it still hurts.”

Simphiwe further revealed that it is not easy grieving while in a relationship with Tino, but she tries not to mix grief and love.

“Honestly, it’s not easy. I try and keep my grief and love separately in order to respect him. Although he’s said I can talk to him about it, I don’t. It’s not fair on him. I’d rather speak to my family about it. I have to respect my new life and give it my all.”

“Whether I like it or not, the loss I experienced is in the past and what I’m trying to build is my future. It was a tough pill to swallow but I pray and keep it moving. Life carries on with or without you. I’ve chosen to live and not be drowned by sorrow and pain. The pain will always be there. It shouldn’t stop you from living,” she added.

Bonang Matheba spotted with another R5 million Ferrari

Popular South African media personality Bonang Matheba is trending against the backdrop of her birthday. The star recently turned a year older, and Mzansi quickly flooded her social media feeds with warm birthday wishes.




With an illustrious career spanning years, Bonang Matheba has quickly become one of the most sought-after stars from South Africa. She often trends when she posts.

The award-winning star was born on 25 June 1987 in Mahikeng, South Africa. Many find it puzzling that Bonang Matheba is 37 years old. Reports have it that she has splurged thousands on her youthful looks and has gone under the knife for that picture-perfect look and banging body.

However, Bonang Matheba’s birthday post has since gained thousands of comments and reactions since it dropped. Videos from her lavish birthday party went viral barely a day after her birthday. It was undoubtedly full of glitz and glamour, and she celebrated it like a queen.

However, one of her flashiest birthday gifts left South Africa impressed. The star shared a clip of receiving a luxurious Ferrari while holding a big bouquet. Bonang Matheba left Mznasi confused about whether if it was the same car she posted a few weeks ago.

Did Bonang Matheba receive another Ferrari barely two weeks after she showed off another sleek Ferrari in a subtle post? However, against the trends, the media personality has yet to address the rumours that have since thrust her into the top trends.

With Bonang yet to clarify whether she is now the owner of two Ferraris, Mzansi was more than convinced that it was the same car she posted a few weeks ago.

A few weeks ago, she made headlines when she shared photos of a new sleek Ferrari. However, Bonang only shared the interior of the car. Bonang was in a FerrariGTC4Lusso.

Petrolheads have given the car a nod, with many trying to understand its price tag. The car has a base price tag of R5 million. However, a few FerarriGTC4Lusso have made it on the market in recent years.

Bonang Matheba posted one of the most sought-after Ferraris. The car was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as a successor to the Ferrari FF. Some of the specs that make it stand above the rest include:

Ferrari F140 V12 engine
651 hp and 697 N.m of torque
Top speed of 335 km/h
The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
It is also an all-wheel drive.

IOL confirmed Mbele’s award win, further highlighting his impact on the show.Mbele is the second major actor to leave Scandal! this season, following Mathews Rantsoma, who played Nhlamulo.

“Matthews approached us to advise us that he would like to pursue other ventures. The production and the channel support his decision and have agreed to release him. He will exit the story at the end of July. We wish success in his future,” reads the statement from the soapie.

Rantsoma joined Scandal! in 2021, playing the role of Lindiwe’s (Nomvelo Makhanya) lover and Vuvu’s (Mamarumo Marokane) baby daddy.

Scandal! Faces Viewer Challenges
Recent figures from the Broadcasting Research Council of South Africa (BRCSA) indicate that Scandal! has experienced a decline in viewership. As of May, the soapie is in fourth place with 3.5 million viewers, a drop from the 3.8 million viewers it had in April. The show was overtaken by Smoke and Mirrors, which is now the third most-watched TV show on with 3.6 million viewers.The loss of viewership can be traced back to March when Scandal! lost its signature first position to SABC1’s soapie, Skeem Saam, which debuted in the 19:30 timeslot. Skeem Saam has seen an increase in viewership, reaching 4 million viewers in April and 4.43 million viewers in May.

As Scandal! navigates these changes and challenges, the departures of key actors like Melusi Mbele and Mathews Rantsoma mark a significant shift for the show. Fans and the production team alike will be watching closely to see how the soapie evolves in response.

Muthusamy said she tried buying time by calling Kabza’s management, while organisers were busy scrambling around and making phone calls. She said that they eventually had to announce that he was not coming to the disappointment of his fans. “We tried to reach out all night with no response. It was a massive disappointment not to have the contract fulfilled and no communication,” Muthusamy said. She added that just before they closed, they received a text from Kabza’s management team who said that he was delayed from his other event. “They story changed and they claimed that he had a flat tyre,” Muthusamy added. When called, Kabza said he would release a statement in due time. “I can’t comment at the moment; I will release a statement in due time,” he said.
