Dj Tira said in his video: “We are suffering as artists and event organisers. When is the country opening? We have limitations in terms of numbers.

We can only host 2000 people, which end up being 1500 as there are services providers like technicians, suppliers and promo girls. Everyone that works at the event cannot be sold a ticket.”

Makoya continued to say that they are used to hosting about 15 000 to 20 000 people. We believe he was referring to the Fact Durban Rocks event, as it is Durban’s biggest concert around December. Last year, due to the strict COVID-19 restrictions, the concert happened virtual.

Dj Tira said they were hungry. The musician reminded the president that they use to video call each other and hopefully President Ramaphosa still remembers him.

Following their exit, they were spotted by DJ Tira who invested in their current musical success.

In the video that was posted on social media, one of the twins was extremely emotional on seeing the other getting dressed for her “wedding”. The caption read: “God is Good”.

This led fans and followers into speculation mode, suggesting that one of the Qwabe twins got married.

A few days ago, the twins posted a clip of Big Zulu accompanied by an audio to a song they are collaborating on with the South African rapper.

Meanwhile, some fans speculate that the video is part of the music video being produced for the song.

DJ Tira also posted a shot of the “blushing bride” in her white dress and veil with the caption: “Congratulations Twin.”

His passing has plunged an industry which has been reeling from one loss to another this year into even greater grief.

“We are shocked, he was not sick and had just worked on the opening of Sarafina,” his younger sister, Khululiwe Sithole, tells Drum.

“He was humble and a good person. The last time I spoke to him he was fine, making his usual jokes, I am still in disbelief.”

Somizi Breaks Silence On Leaked Marriage With The Queen Actor And Isithembu

South African media personality, Somizi Mhlongo has taken to his social media to debunk rumours that he is getting married to Pholoso Mohlala.

This is coming after City Press reported over the weekend that Somizi has allegedly paid lobola to his alleged fiancé Pholoso Mohlala.

He called out City Press for always publishing false articles about him stating the article has affected his relationship with one of the two men he’s dating.
According to Somizi, he is in a relationship with two partners, one of whom is wealthy, the other not.

“My heart is sore. I am hurt. Yesterday, there was an article written about me. Usually, I don’t care, I don’t explain but this time because certain things can be damaging,” he said.

Somizi said Pholoso is married and he has a wife. “There’s a story about me that I am getting married and a wedding is in plan and I’ve paid 1.5 million for lobola to Pholoso. I don’t have an issue with that because I’m used to people writing sh*t about me. They only got one thing right, that I know Pholosho. Pholosho is married, he’s got a wife who’s pregnant, and we are just friends.”

He said: “They are causing a rift between me and my partners. I have two people that I was dating, one has money and the other doesn’t have money but I have to explain to these two people what’s going on. And I was still going to choose between the two of them, which the obvious case is that I am going to choose the one with money but I have to be decent and tell him first that I was going to leave him. Now he’s left me first because of the City Press story. City Press ruined my plan”
