He paid tribute to his neighbours and community, explaining that many had forgiven him for his rebellious past.
“Most of the people have forgiven me for half the things I did as a youngster. I always remember the second, the third, and fourth chance that I got.”
He said that he draws strength from the support he now gets from his community and those who have forgiven him.
“I know what type of forgiveness one can get from a community and what that means for an artist. You can draw a lot of strength from that. Knowing that your neighbours or those around you want you to win does something for you that you can’t find in any book or song. Your community builds you.”

Twin sisters Viggy and Virginia Qwabe from “Idols SA” season 15 fame, had tongues wagging on social media after they posted snippets of a wedding-themed scene of a music video they’re working on.
The Qwabe twins shot to fame when they auditioned for the reality competition and reached the Top 10 before their dramatic exit after one of the twins (Virginia) was eliminated.

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.

But the work Mthandeni Mvelase was most celebrated for was the catchy soundtrack he produced for popular SABC2 soap opera Muvhango.
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.”
Gibsons Reimagined with Duma ka Ndlovu; the Bambata Rebellion live mega musical; and the new Sarafina production whose opening he had just completed work on when he passed on.
He first came into the spotlight when he joined Mbongeni Ngema’s Township Fever which the musical genius travelled to the United States with in 1987.
When Mthandeni returned from abroad, he worked with Muvhango creator Duma Ndlovu’s Word Of Mouth Pictures in a number of projects including The Lion King and The Journey, which traveled to Switzerland.
He also composed a number of television shows.
The theatre and SA music icon’s family says he took his last breath on 21 July 2022.
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”
