According to Slimm, he walked away from the situation first. In fact, Slimm says that when Vivica gave Sister 2 Sister magazine an interview for the December cover, she acted as if they were still together when they were NOT. On allegations that he used Vivica for the fame: I would have just basically played the game if I was just trying to use her.

Brenda Fassie’s son Bongani receives R20m estate settlement
Her bold stage antics earned a reputation for “outrageousness”. Affectionately called Mabrr by her fans, she was sometimes described as the “Queen of African Pop”. Fassie was born in Langa, Cape Town, as the youngest of nine children.
In the song, off of his album Tour Dates , Solo immortalizes Maggz by rapping praises to the Soweto-born rapper on two verses think of ” U. R ” by Nas. The skilled rapper lets us know that Maggz is Top 5 dead or alive, which is a shrewd assertion—one that I personally agree with. Maggz has been rapping spheres around the best of them for more than a decade, and he seems to keep getting better. However, being a Maggz fan is a struggle. Beyond those features, Maggz’s career hasn’t reached its full potential.
The two were also part of the trio Saudi Western, alongside the singer Sgebi.
At school I was always involved with any event music related like concerts; I was also part of the school band. I left Delareyville in Grade 10, in the late 90s, to pursue a music career in Joburg. Through another friend I met with the legendary producer and singer, Chicco Twala who introduced me to music producers Mandla Spikiri and Mdu Masilela.
They needed a singer and I joined the gang. My career picked up there; I had hits like Roba Li theka, but as time went by I decided to leave for personal reasons. I was in my early 20s and living on the streets of Hillbrow.
I had great expectations and nothing I imagined could prepare me for the journey we were about to undertake. Everything went according to plan from start to finish- our winners Sharon Vilakazi and Harry Letshoene arrived with their groups on time, the latest Land Rover Freelanders that would carry us arrived and we set off for Pietermaritzburg. We were a group of 20 people about to share in a unique experience, the impact of which we can only describe to other people. There were about 50 cars split into 7 groups ready to set off in different directions to distribute books and educational materials to 2 or 3 schools each.
The first school was Kwasikhunyana Primary in the High flats area. We were greeted by singing, ululating and praise for coming there. The situation was really desperate with the school only having 3 meager classrooms to teach grades 1 to 7. There were broken desks, the walls were bare, just not enough of anything.

His sound comprises of quirky lyrics, acoustic tones and catchy melodies. I got time to to meeet up with him and this is how it went down: Who is Jimmy Nevis? An eclectic pop artist, songwriter, producer and pianist from Cape Town. Jimmy was my grandfathers name and Nevis was a nickname I created in University. Eventually, people started calling me Nevis on campus and so for the music, I decided to put the two names together.
Music is the place where all the different spheres of me are rerpresented. When did your love for music start?
Brenda Fassie: 5 Years Later her Music LIVES
Photo by Maggz is without doubt one of the best rappers in Mzansi! His unique flow and ability to play around with words has kept him at the top of his game for the past couple of years. And when he took a break from music, his adoring fans motivated him to make a comeback. O The reserved artist told SunBuzz: Even though the charges were later withdrawn, he took a big knock and this slowed things down for him.
More rappers have actually bit the bullet and invested blood, sweat and tears into their art. This approach has given Bloem hip hop a new lease of life and exposure not just on a local level but national level. Their song went on to be the official SABC1 summer song and they earned a Metro nomination for best remix for their feel good banger Bheka Mina Ngedwa.
But when you count the majors of bloem hip hop you cannot overlook one sleeping giant which is 2nyce, he has been in the game for a while, moving up and down on the charts and in the scene. Remember his first hit and the song that drew eyes to Bloem Hip Hop was this one right here. If he was consistent with follow ups, he could have certainly been way further than he is now.
He last song that really peeked was this one. The most seasoned hip hop DJ in bloem Shaxe Khumalo also came into the game swinging hard with some good music last year but for a man of his networks one expected way much more because he knows all the right people in the industry and he has a consistent following that often buy into his concepts, financially and otherwise.
He is one of the most bankable DJs in Bloem at the moment but his tune with Naycha did fairlywell in the local scene but nationally it did not make much of an impact regardless of the fact that it has all the ingredients of a proper turn up song.

I can exclusively reveal that Bongani Fassie, who I think has had way too many reality checks in his life, will be one of the names that will be revealed at the e. The first season of the Endemol produced show, saw media fodders, Kanyi Mbau, Nonhle Thema and Babalwa Mneno, cosy up to each other as they traveled the country to get schooled on how the simple life people live and earn their pap.
On the show we saw the ladies go through some emotional ride as they got to experience life outside of the priviledges of celebrity and big city dwelling. Unfortunately there is no word yet from the channel or the production company about the synopsis of the second season. I actually had to use my own ingenuity to find out that Somizi and Bongani had signed on.
One can only assume that the second season will follow the same format of season one. If that is the case, then we might be in for some fun television viewing. We all know Somizi, never disappoints when it comes to giving the viewer “TV moments”.
