Jelly Babie on why she left school
Jelly Babie, real name Karabo Khakhu, said Vusi R5's death caused a lot of attention to be focused on her at school and teachers used to comment on her going to gigs so she decided to leave school.
“Honestly speaking I left school after Vusi R5's funeral. When I got to school people kept telling me how sorry they were, asking me about R5 and I couldn't concentrate at school. The teachers would call me into the staff room asking me about R5, how I'm healing ... even the treatment I was getting,” she said.
Focalistic on Shebeshxt claiming he was not paid for gig
Focalistic responded to Shebeshxt claiming he was not compensated for participating in his first one-man show, the Straata Nation Address,at the Pretoria National Botanical Gardens on September 16.
“I asked him how much he wanted. I wanted to pay. Those who know [me] know I pay for people to perform at my shows. So he wanted to do it out of love and I respect that, so I don't know. The problem is that people love beef and I don't have it. I love him a lot. Whatever he wants, I got it. If he wants money he must tell me, let's fix it. I've never imagined myself fighting Shebe.”
Kelly Khumalo is not happy with the Samas
Kelly Khumalo went on a social media rampage after allegedly being snubbed at the 29th South African Music Awards (SAMA29).
The singer's album From A God To A King had her nominated in the Best Afro-Pop Album and Female Artist of the Year categories, but she did not win either.
In a series of X posts, some of which she has deleted, Kelly claimed Ntokozo Mbambo did not deserve to take home the Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best Contemporary Faith Album awards for her Lavish Worship album.
