“Now we’re posing with kettles🤣🤦🏾‍♀️Ay ngeke shem. Nikhona.” she continued.

Ayanda revealed that she does not have Smeg appliances in her house because she wouldn’t pay that much for a kettle.

“You are very entitled to spend your money where you want)…BUT AS FOR ME…if I’m going to buy a kettle for that much, it had better make that tea and bring it to me on a try and take itself back to the kitchen🤣🤣🤣 What kind of water does it boil kanti????? 🤣🤣🤣”

“The world had better stop playing mind games with us. A whole toaster for R10k? Ungafa. Not in my name shem🤣🤣🤣Thina we pose with our own books. Read that again. Siyeka ukudlala oSmeg la.🙈” she added.

Some fans caught the heat, however, a few other celebrities and fans seemed to be agreeing with her.

Comedian Thenjiwe Moseley responded: “I thought I was the only one who noticed how the Smeg kettle and toaster moves to the kitchen corner where the photo is taken every time 🤣🤣🤣 bayajabula abelungu ave benama free influencer in South Africa 🤣🤣🤣”

Dominate_n: “You are bitter!!🤣 Flex with your books and don’t mention what others are doing if it doesn’t bother you! Thina we flex nge smeg in the background coz we know how hard we worked to buy it,

“It by no way means we don’t have better things to pose with. For example our MBA degree certificates, our bank statements, etc. Stay in your lane sisi”

Ayanda realized that her comments may have offended some fans, She then posted a video saying: “Me when the nation of kettles and toasters comes for me🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 It’s not that deep guys I promise🙈 Nceseni hle🙏🏾 Ay’khale! Yey! 🤦🏾‍♀️”

She continued to say that people’s comments had nothing to do with what she said.

“A nerve was touched and it has nothing to do with kettles and toasters. You see people meet you at their own level of brokenness or healing.

“They meet you as far and as deeply as they have met themselves. They meet you at their place of worth or unworthiness. They meet you at their peace or war. They meet where THEY ARE, not where YOU ARE.

MacG Seen As A Gatekeeper By Penuel




MacGyver “MacG” Mukwevho is one of the leading podcasters in South Africa and arguably Africa as a whole. Back in 2022, his YouTube-based podcast Podcast and Chill was considered the fastest-growing local channel by almost doubling in its subscribers in the year alone.

However, it seems that his recent interview with musician and estranged ex-wife to Nota Baloyi, Berita, has landed him in trouble with the rest of his fellow podcasters. This is because MacG was friends with Nota before Nota started attacking Podcast and Chill’s co-host Sol Phenduka.

Thereafter, the entire podcast vowed never to talk or address anything Nota says about them on social media. However, the invitation to Berita to appear resulted in Nota going back to Twitter to lambaste and threaten the podcast.

Now it seems that Nota has gotten other podcasters to attempt to disparage more YouTubers to not watch Podcast and Chill.

MacG labeled as a gatekeeper by Penuel

Penuel the Black Pen is a YouTuber and podcaster who has his own podcast besides co-anchoring DJ Sbu’s The Hustler’s Corner. Moreover, Penuel is Nota’s friend if his latest utterances are anything to go by. Given Nota’s history of attacking females and in addition to his triggering utterances on social media, you would believe that Penuel would be seeking help for Nota.

But Penuel seems to think that Nota has a good heart. As such, he compared Nota to MacG by suggesting that Nota’s good heart is unlike that of MacG, who he labeled as a gatekeeper because MacG allegedly does not support up-and-coming podcasters and YouTubers via his channel.

This is the same Penuel that forgets that MacG did visit the DJ Sbu podcast and endorsed Hustler’s Corner. Moreover, MacG was the first podcast to have Nota as a regular feature before his utterances leaned toward being violent and dangerous. The same MacG who has diversified his channel into a network to include other podcasts like The Queer Way of Life with Bujy Bikwa, On The Table, Podcarst and Ride, and Popcorn and Cheese. Even Penuel has been on Podcast and Chill.

As such, it seems that Chillers were affronted by Penuel’s false tales on how MacG is a gatekeeper on YouTube given that he too started on the platform with zero to no support and grew his subscription organically. Therefore, some Chillers have petitioned to boycott other podcasts in order to prove how much of a gatekeeper MacG could be if he decided to do so.

The actor who portrayed Vikizitha Magwaza, in the SABC1 soapie is suspected that the actor may be suffering from mental illness.

The 38-year-old actor joined Uzalo in February and admitted that the show saved him after he was said to have been broke and started commuting in taxis.

According to a report on Isolezwe, Siyabonga is in a bad mental state since he has been admitted to a mental facility for weeks now.

LaConco’s father reveals he is ready to reconcile with his daughter




LaConco’s father has revealed that he is ready to reconcile with his daughter.

The star’s father has no intention to leave this world a heartbroken man following his strained relationship with his daughter.

According to Daily Sun, the 94-year-old man wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter, before he passes away, and he is begging her to come home and see her.

The Our Perfect Wedding host has allegedly blocked his number and on social media because she wants nothing to do with him. “I miss my daughter, but it’s clear she hates me. I’ve been trying to reach her since 2018, but she blocked me on all communication platforms,” he explained.

Their relationship apparently got tainted after he weighed in on LaConco’s damages paid by former South African statesman Jacob Zuma for getting her pregnant. According to the ailing father, the damages went to her mother’s home in the Eastern Cape.

“Was I wrong to be angry when things were not done according to our culture? Was I supposed to keep quiet? I don’t know. All I know is that I need to reconcile with my daughter so that I die in peace. Nonkanyiso my loving daughter, please come back home. Let us talk and put everything behind us. I’m sick. I feel weak every day and sometimes my eyes get blurry. I can die anytime. But I’m afraid if I die now, I will die with a broken heart. And I will not be a good ancestor to Nonkanyiso,” he told the publication.

He told the publication that he wants to reconcile with his daughter because his ancestors visited him through a dream and said they won’t accept her should she die because she deserted her father.

“I raised Nonkanyiso. She went to the best schools. The English that she speaks on TV is because of me. I also pray for her well-being. I burn impepho and ask the ancestors to watch over her and bring her back home,” he added.

The old man said that she does not want the famed TV star’s money, because he is being taken care of by her siblings. He just wants her to come to see him so they can talk and mend their broken relationship.
