The Daily Show - Trevor Noah Continues the War on Bulls**t

Watch: Trevor Noah Makes His The Daily Show Debut


After the announcement,preparation as well as counting down the days, South African comedian, Trevor Noah, who has made history, made his debut on the Comedy Central The Daily Show.


So not only were the South Africans, but the rest of Africa waiting to see how Noah was going to make his first impression on the American audience. Trevor acknowledged Jon Stewart, the former host of the The Daily Show for giving him the opportunity to be part one of America's biggest television talk shows. Interestingly enough, Trevor considered himself as a 'black' man whilst explaining why he got the hosting job.

His knowledge on American politics as well as the puns he threw were really funny as well as researched. He also had his first interview with comedian Kevin Hart, referring the comic superstar as a 'mitch' (a term used on Hart's hit reality TV series "Real Husbands of Hollywood" for a 'male bitch'), as w…

Takudzwa Paradza Dies

Takudzwa Paradza Passes Away 


Sadly after efforts to fund-raise money for a bone marrow transplant in India, 20 year old Takudzwa Paradza passed away on Sunday 27 September 2015.

He had been suffering from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after being diagnosed in September 2014, and by January 2015 the disease had spread to his brain.

A fundraising campaign under the name #AnswerTheCall was started early June to raise $25000 for Taku to undergo an autologous bone marrow transplant in India. Friends, family, artists and organisations across the globe came through and supported the campaign the best way they knew how.

Early July 2015, Taku and Maria (his Mom) made their way to India where he underwent a series of medical procedures. Unfortunately, the cancer was noted to be more aggressive than initially stated and at the time of his death they were still searching for a matching donor.

Our sincerest condolences to his loved ones.

Details on the repatriation and funeral are still being made.

Bucie Gives A Sexy Performance At Shoko Festival

Shoko Festival promised a grand opening night and they delivered in the form of multi-award winning South African R&B/house singer-songwriter Bucie.

The SA beauty made a dramatic entrance wearing all black sexy boob tube and tights, which contoured her really banging body, (she did mention that she works out). Bucie held no bars, as she danced sensually on stage as well as energetically and the crowd went crazy singing along to every song of hers.

Though she had a back track, Bucie proved that she can actually sing, the woman has pipes for days. Bucie engaged both the women and men in the crowd as she had a heart to heart with the ladies about their problems with men, whilst she twerked for the boys! Her last song, "Easy To Love" obviously had most of the crowd singing along word for word.

Bucie made it easy to love her as she gave a stellar performance that had all of us wanting more and we hope that this wont be the last …
