Maps Maponyane Nomzamo MbathaActress Nomzamo Mbatha was over the weekend romantically linked to her former boyfriend Maps Maponyane.

This was after the model posted a picture on Instagram of him hugging an unidentified lady. Fans were quick to point out that from behind, she resembled Nomzamo. Some thought the couple had mended things and were back together after breaking up in 2018.

The Coming to America 2 actress was however not amused. She went on a Twitter rant accusing Maps of creating confusion by using clickbait.

“Anything for clickbait huh…” the actress posted on Twitter.

In a follow up tweet, she made it categorically clear that she was not back together with Maps, and will never again date him. She also made a subtle threat to expose what really happened in their relationship if Maps keeps provoking her.

“Not now. Not ever. Masego, stop taking advantage of my silence and choice to be graceful through it all. Shake this can one more time and I’ll open it.

“@MapsMaponyane you made your bed. Lie in it.”

She soon followed up with another tweet.

“When a woman is direct and clear about her feelings and thoughts, she is ’emotional’, ‘overreacting’, ‘clearly hung up’ … her feelings, words and thoughts are never warranted There have been many attempts with a futile response that have led to this point. I’m finally standing up for me.”

Maps, who turned 30 this week, later revealed that the lady in the picture was just a work friend.

As if she was not clear the first time, Nomzamo later tweeted and made it categorical that she is a single lady.

”Being back in LA means back to working two time zones which spans over two days and a workload like no other. Thank goodness there’s no relationship to manage on top of it all, because wow,” she said.

Queen SonoMzansi superstar Pearl Thusi is still riding on her ‘Queen Sono‘ success.

The Netflix original released last month performed very well, becoming the top show in many African countries including South Africa and Kenya.

The reviews and ratings were not exactly great, but as long as the audience watch in their numbers, that has never prevented Netflix from renewing shows.

Pearl hopes the numbers will be on their side this time, and she is promising to let us know the moment a second season is green lit. Writing on Twitter, Pearl revealed that the show is still doing well across markets, better than expected actually.

Hi everyone! Thank you for all the incredible support! The show is still doing very well! Better than expected !!! I’m so proud ! I promise to let you know as soon as we know whether there’ll be a second season ! We love you!

The spy thriller follows Queen Sono (Pearl Thusi) around Africa as she engages in espionage acts.

It is the first African original on the streaming service.

The overachieving hunk has already made a name for himself as the go-to event MC, and has already opened a chain of restaurants. Quite a remarkable fete considering he has just turned 30.

Maps entered his third decade on earth this week, and were it not for a surprise bash by some of his friend, we may not even have found out.

A few of his celebrity friends came together to organize a party for him. Boity posted on Twitter, We managed to surprise the birthday boy for his 30th!!  I hope last night made you feel as special as you are @MapsMaponyane.”

Cassper NyovestAs the world continues to grapple with the spread of COVID-19, best known as the Coronavirus, one Mzansi celeb is not particularly worried.

In South Africa, the total number of confirmed cases is relatively low at 7. Four of these cases were announced by Health Minister Zweli Mkhize on Monday.

It is likely that the number will go up, either spreading from this small group of patients, or from carriers bringing it from abroad.

However despite all the global panic, rapper Cassper Nyovest is not scared, or at least not taking the threat seriously.

On Twitter, Mufasa quoted a tweet from a news report alleging that masturbation boosts the immune system by raising your white blood cell count.

This in turn helps you fight off infection and illness, the article claims.

According to the rapper, he therefore has nothing to fear, insinuating he is a serial masturbator.

Cassper Nyovest Coronavirus

Probably he’s kidding, probably not. Only he knows.

DStv NowWe have previously reported that DStv is planning to launch a standalone streaming package. Dubbed ‘dishless DStv’, the service will go live later this year if all goes according to plan.

It is separate from DStv Now in that you do not need to be a dish subscriber to access the service. Other than a smart TV or streaming stick/box plus your internet connection, you will not need additional gadgets.

It is now being reported that DStv will this weekend open up the entire catalog on its DStv Now service to lower tiers.

DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact, DStv Family and DStv Access subscribers will for 3 days access all content and live events on DStv Now, something currently only possible for premium subscribers.

EasyView subscribers are however not included in this offer.

It is said the open weekend is a large scale public trial to test the server capacity ahead of the dishless DStv launch. MultiChoice’s servers have a history of crashing when there is a heavy influx of online users.

For instance last year, the service crashed several times during Rugby World Cup matches and also during the final season of Game of Thrones.

The open weekend means lower-tier subscribers will be able to watch all English Premier League matches, the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix main race, the Six Nations matches, Vodacom Super Rugby matches etc.

DJ Zinhle AKAAfter weeks of going mum following her break up with rapper AKA, DJ Zinhle has finally broken her silence.

The DJ told Drum magazine that she has just been busy and not gotten time to address the matter publicly.

“I am fine, I’m genuinely fine. I just have been overworked,” she explained.

Asked about her relationship with her baby daddy, the DJ said that their break-up was amicable and they are civil towards each other. She said they are “one big happy family”.

“Kiernan, my mom and I, everyone is just getting along. Our break-up hasn’t broken up the family.

“It doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship to make a family work and that is what we are trying to do now.”

The couple ended their on/off relationship towards the end of last year, but it only became public early this year. AKA confirmed the split on Metro FM in January.

Weeks later on Twitter, AKA confirmed that he had indeed broken up with the DJ last year, and was a single man when a video of him kissing a mystery woman went viral.
