Leo Prinsloo, the security escort who dodged a hail of bullets when he and his colleague were attacked on the N4 in Pretoria, has been celebrated as a hero for his ability to remain calm in a situation that could have cost the pair’s lives.
South Africans were introduced to him last week after footage recorded inside a cash-in-transit vehicle under attack went viral on social media and dominated local and international news headlines.
In it, Prinsloo can be heard giving instructions to his colleague while he drives to get away from their attackers.
He trained the Abu Dhabi police antiterrorism unit
Prinsloo is listed as the head of global security at Cybex Security, a London-based company that offers a wide range of security services. According to the company’s website, Prinsloo was headhunted to train the antiterrorism unit of Abu Dhabi’s police force.
He’s been part of teams protecting Madiba, Prince Charles and even Kim K
He has served in protection teams guarding famous people including former president Nelson Mandela, Kim Kardashian and Prince Charles, according to Advanced Tactical Training.
He teaches self-defence and physical training
He is the head instructor at Fortis Group and a former police special task force member. His “Lone Operator” training programme is focused on self-defence and includes teaching people physical fitness and knife defence.
And is the owner of a shooting academy
Prinsloo also owns The Edge shooting academy in Centurion. The academy offers firearm training for beginners and advanced users. Trainees are taught how to shoot at moving targets and from moving vehicles, among other skills.
In all things, he preaches alertness is key
“It’s a state of mind. Be able! Be ready! Be competent.” This is the message plastered across his Facebook timeline.
In an interview with eNCA on Tuesday, he told the broadcaster he was able to survive the attack because of his ability to anticipate violence.
“You need to expect things like that to happen because it prepares your mind for what you need to do. The first time I knew they were there was when the gun went off. When we train people, we teach them to pre-visualise what they need to do, that it is a mindset.”
PHOTOS: Beyonce’ Stunned In A Leather Min Dress With Jay-Z During NBA Date Night
Beyoncé had a rare public date night with Jay-Z in Brooklyn yesterday, and she was kind enough to share a real-time outfit of the day pics. The couple attended the Brooklyn Nets versus Milwaukee Bucks NBA game at Barclays Center, where they were photographed being affectionate court-side.
Beyoncé shared outfit of the day photos on her Instagram, too. For the game, she wore a David Koma leather corset dress with an open, bejeweled houndstooth leather shirt by the brand. She accessorized with Christian Louboutin pumps.
Beyoncé has been generous this year, sharing an outfit of the day photos semi-regularly. She gave her last big interview to British Vogue in November 2020, where she reflected on her year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
2020 left her “absolutely changed. It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed,” she said. “I have learned that my voice is clearer when I am still.
Makhadzi Buys Her Dancer, Limpopo Boy A New Car
Makhadzi Buys Car For Her Dancer
The relationship between singer Makhadzi and one of Mzansi’s most celebrated dancers, Limpopo Boy, is complex. We remember some time ago when Limpopo Boy dumped Makhadzi.
In February, it was reported that Limpopo Boy had dumped Makhadzi. “Working with her [Makhadzi] has been an amazing experience because I am learning a lot from her and I can say I got the courage to even start in music from her,” Skoropo said.
Limpopo Boy, real name Matome Thoka, has been dancing for Makhadzi – real name Ndivhuzannyi Ralivhona – for more than six years. He said he would still dance for her regardless of his solo career.
It seems like the two have mended their relationship becuase MzansiNdaba is reliably informed that Makhadzi bought Limpopo Boy a brand new VW car.
Twitter was not amused though and suggested there could be more going on behind the scenes for Makhadzi to do such.

In other news, Makhadzi is in love!!
At first, the Matorokisi hitmaker was alleged to be dating a man by the name of Zwivhuya Nelwamondo, but nothing was confirmed. Now we can safely say that the musician and dancer has made it official and she us not hiding from the public anymore.
Zwivhuya is a business man, a Chief Executive Officer at Lwams Africa. Her man is said to be very supportive and the two are more than just lovers, but business partners to as he is said to have been sponsoring a lot of her gigs under his company.

Sophie Ndaba Joins Top Radio Station As A DJ
ACTRESS and businesswoman Sophie Ndaba is venturing into radio.
She recently joined the newly revamped Radio BOP, where she will host a lifestyle show every Saturday.
Sophie saidshe has always wanted to pursue a career in radio, but the opportunity never presented itself.
“Whenever I was invited to shows, I always saw myself behind the mic. I was really excited when I was approached for a slot at the station.
“I guess it was all about timing and I cannot wait for everyone to listen to the show as they are going to love it,” she said.
Sophie said her show will uplift women.
“I believe knowledge is power, and the show is going to help a lot of people as it will focus on health, beauty and business.
“To be honest, I did not want to turn the show into another regular show which will bore people.
“So when you listen, you will hear it’s different and does not follow the same format as other radio shows,” she said.
She said that she wanted the show to be interactive and fun.
Sophie said she saw herself doing radio for a long time.
“Radio is a great form of communication and I believe with my expertise and knowledge, people have a lot to gain, which is why I said yes to this gig in the first place.
“If this opportunity ends anytime soon, I will definitely continue with radio and find other ways to make it work,” she said.
Sophie, who recently made her producing debut on SABC1’s drama series Family Secrets, said she enjoyed being behind the scenes.
“Being a producer on the show has been amazing and I’m making sure the story goes to another level, is told correctly and continues to do well.
“The new season is bigger, better and has a lot of cliffhangers which will leave people at the edge of their seats,” she said.
