Idols SA fans who rooted for Kelly Khumalo to replace Somizi Mhlongo in the singing competition might be disappointed to find out that the songstress will not be joining the show. According to City Press, Kelly will not even be entertaining Mzansi Magic’s offer simply because she is already part of a singing competition on SABC 2 called Stand Up South Africa.
Stand Up SA is a family singing competition where families get into a heated competition with other families. The grand prize is a whopping R100 000. It premiered last week Sunday, the 5th. It is hosted by the talented Dineo Langa and judging the competition show is Kelly, Lorcia Cooper Khumalo, and Kurt Darren.
During the show’s virtual media launch Kelly spoke of her excitement, “I cannot wait for the public to see this. One of the things I was looking for as a judge was the chemistry between the families,” she said as quoted by Drum.

This leaves Kelly no choice but to obviously turn down Idols SA. Seeing how Kelly and Somizi, the man fans were hoping Kelly would be replacing on the show are best friends, which possibly fueled her decision as well.
Parting ways with Somizi, M-Net wrote in a statement, “M-Net and Mr. Somizi Mhlongo met to discuss his role on Idols SA in light of the allegations made against him. We have reached a mutual agreement that Mr. Mhlongo will take some time off to deal with his personal circumstances until this matter has been resolved. Viewers will still see Mr. Mhlongo on their screens until August 22 2021 as the audition shows for Idols SA were pre-recorded.”
A source told Sunday World, “Khumalo will definitely be one of the guests,” a source told the publication. “She is already an M-Net talent and is doing well for the channel,” it added.
In other news, Kelly has urged her future husband to give her money and not be stingy when she asks. “If I ask you that I want this, don’t be stingy, just be generous with your money,” she advised in an IG video.
The video was intended to advise her future husband to give her money the same way her “dad” is giving her money. She says everything she asks for, she gets and she expects the same treatment from her future husband.

The vaccinated star did not have a good experience with the injection saying it made her not feel her lady parts. “You know when they say, straight talk doesn’t break any friendship? Me I am like this. So, last week I went for my vaccination for Covid-19. I get there, they are telling me that maybe I’m going to experience a slight headache, maybe my arm will be in pain.” She continued.
“No problem. But they didn’t mention that certain parts of my body will not be functioning properly. You know I am not feeling anything down under. Is it me or is it just the repercussions of the vaccine? I just need to understand. She is not the same.”

Warrant Of Arrest Issued For Zahara
Afro-soul singer Bulelwa Mkutukana, best known by her stage name Zahara could face jail time after a warrant for her arrest was issued on Friday.
The warrant was issued by the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court sitting in Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court after she failed to show up to answer to a charge of failing to submit her personal tax returns.
The Umthwalo Wam hitmaker was charged by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) early this year for contravening South African tax laws for failing to submit her personal tax returns for 2017 and 2018 to the South African Revenue Service (Sars).
She appeared in the same court last month and the matter was postponed to Friday last week where she was supposed to plead to the charge and possibly begin the trial.
But the Phendula singer cocked a snook at the court when she failed to appear for apparently no plausible reason and as a result, a warrant for her arrest was immediately issued. But its execution was stayed until Wednesday, October 27.
NPA South Gauteng spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane confirmed that a warrant of arrest had been issued against the Loliwe crooner.
“We can confirm that a warrant of arrest has been issued for Bulelwa “Zahara” Mtukukana for her failure to appear in the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court sitting in Palm Ridge on her charge of failing to submit her personal tax returns. But it was held over until Wednesday October 27,” she said.
The warrant of arrest was issued a month after the songstress recorded her second criminal record after paying an admission of guilt fine of R2 000 for failing to submit her company Zahara Army’s income tax returns after pleading guilty to the charges.
She paid the fine when she appeared in the same court after the NPA charged her in her capacity as the director of her company, Zahara Army Projects (Pty) Ltd, for failing to submit company tax returns for 2017 and 2018 to Sars.

After paying the fine, the case was removed from the court roll.
Mjonondwana said the NPA welcomed the outcome of the case involving her failure to submit her company’s tax returns as that would send a strong message to would-be tax dodgers that no one was immune from tax compliance and that all people were equal before the law.
Zahara recorded her first criminal record when she paid a R1 500 guilt fine for failing to appear in the same court for the same case in June.
This after the court gave her an option to pay the quantum or spend three months in jail after finding her guilty of contempt of court.
The musician, whose career has taken a nosedive and has been struggling to pay her bills, handed herself over to the police after a warrant of arrest was issued in April against her.
Cedric Fourie looking for a side chick to have a baby for him
Cedric Fourie looking for a side chick to have a baby for him. Cedric Fourie has garnered fame for his twisted turn as ruthless businessman Lehasa Maphosa in Skeem Saam and recently as charming Dr Mthembu in Durban Gen.
The latter has been a dream come true for Fourie, as playing a doctor was always on his acting to-do list.
Get to know Fourie away from the limelight:
Who is Cedric Fourie?
He is a father, son and brother and grandson. He is a businessman, a University of Cape Town graduate, an actor, a network engineer – he is basically a lover of all things good. He is passionate about helping people from underprivileged backgrounds. He is also all about seeing growth in circumstances unimaginable.
How would you best describe your fashion sense?
I dress according to how I feel. I like experimenting. If I feel good and happy, and because I am a storyteller by nature, one can at times tell how I feel based on how I am dressed. No-one really inspires my look, my inspiration comes from what I see all around me.
What is your love language?
Words of affirmation. I believe we need to communicate verbally not just through actions because those can be misinterpreted. I think as people we have to be good at communicating verbally – we need to say what we mean and mean what we say. It’s easier to communicate your true intentions with words. I also love presence. Being present is a love language on its own.
If you could pause any moment in your life, which would it be?
I don’t believe in pausing moments. I believe in living it and outliving a moment and recreating it if you feel like you’re not done with that moment.
But if I were to pause any moment, it would have to be when my name was called as the an official University of Cape Town graduate at the virtual graduation ceremony. I went on a vacation in Thailand, it was extremely amazing, I will pause that.
My skin tone. I’ve got uneven skin tone. I hate it so much. Like, my body from my head to knees is one skin colour and then my calves are a shade darker as well as my hands. I don’t understand why but I just don’t like it. It’s almost like there are two people in one body.
What’s the one song you are embarrassed with in your playlist?
It would have to be DJ Mujava’s Mugwanti that’s still on my playlist and I need to get rid of it. This song’s bass-used to make us go crazy back in the day but now I can’t be playing those type of songs.
What always makes you laugh?
A lot of things make me laugh. My humour is so broad; I find humour in almost everything. Like I can be in the scariest of situations in life but if there is something I can spot that’s funny, I will burst out laughing and try to find my way back into fear mode. I also enjoy teasing people, especially people I work with. A lot of people think I’m this guy with muscles who’s all serious only to find out that I am all about laughter.
If you weren’t afraid what would you do?
I’d open a scrapyard. I would then start a gas company and start a journalism degree and also do economics. Oh, I also have a fetish which is wanting to have a baby with someone else. My partner and I joke about this a lot but yeah, if I wasn’t afraid, I’d have a baby with someone else and probably get married to my partner.
What secret talent do you have?
I can write poetry,I am good at cooking and I love to smell good

Somizi Applauds His Daughter’s Acting Skills
Media personality Somizi Mhlongo is a proud father. He shared a video of his daughter Bahumi showing off her acting skills.
“My school fees are not going to waste at AFDA ( in kelly Khumalo’s voice) coz wow dear daughter u killed this….80% natural,” wrote Somizi.
He also added, “AFDA to protect yoself from Twitter trolls who say nywe nywe some ppl study for acting yer u get roles coz of connections…anyway asikho lapho…AFDA yo harness the talent @bahumi777.”
The video left fans and other celebrities singing praises and applauding Bahumi for her stellar performance.
Here are a few reactions. Award-winning singer Kelly Khumalo said the world is not ready for Bahumi.
“This should be a proud moment of you cuz your greatest achievement…the world is not ready.”
Lindeka also wrote: “Your daughter is following granny’s footsteps… Your momma was a king actress not to mention your dad wow.”
Meanwhile, Somizi has reportedly scored a new gig on Moja Love and he has been filming every day on the channel according to Daily Sun sources.
“He is on set every day shooting and having a great time but it is intense. He will be shooting almost every day for the next three weeks,” Daily Sun quoted the source.
Somizi lost a few gigs including his job as an Idols SA judge after audio clips of his estranged husband Mohale Motaung got leaked. In the audio, Mohale opened up about the abuse he suffered in his relationship with Somizi. Read More: Mzansi Shocked By Allegations Made Against Somizi.
However, Somizi denied the allegations saying: “Our relationship has its ups and downs but I have NEVER been physically or knowingly emotionally abusive towards my estranged husband. I vehemently deny the allegations of criminal acts towards him and would like to clear my name of that defamation. What I am going to state however is that we had one altercation in which I had to defend myself and both of us were physically hurt by the other. I am at this stage not at liberty to dive deeper into the details but can state that he is not a victim in this situation.”
Meanwhile, Mohale maintains that he suffered abuse, “I did in fact experience abuse at the hands of my estranged husband both physical and psychological. It is not my wish to seesaw my experience against his as he only has his conscience to reckon with,” he said in his recent statement.
