South African singer, Kelly Khumalo has hit back at gospel fans who have criticised the star and her relationship with Christianity. In a lengthy Instagram post, the star took aim at the “Judge Judys” or gatekeepers of the gospel genre. “Those of you who call yourselves Christians, stop! Because you don’t even know what you go to church for. ‘Our God, Our God’, Gha! Sies! The very same God you’re talking about is the one that blesses me on a daily basis because he knows exactly who I am. I don’t try and put up a front,” said Kelly. She went on to remind fans that she wasn’t a gospel artist and asked haters to do her a favour by hitting that unfollow button. “I’m no gospel artist and I don’t wish to be. I’m perfect as I am.

Champions League: Tuchel Blasts UEFA Over new Format

  Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has hit out at UEFA’s Champions League reforms. According to the former PSG and Borussia Dortmund boss, the governing body avoided criticisms because of the outrage over the collapsed Super League. Last Monday, UEFA approved changes that will see the number of teams competing in the Champions League rise from 32 to 36. The group stage will also be replaced by a single league stage, known as the ‘Swiss model’. The alterations to the competition will see teams play at least 10 games in the first stage. Tuchel said: “I’m not sure if I like it because I can only see more games out of it. In the schedule that we have, it’s very hard for me to be excited at all. “All these discussions about the Super League made us forget that we ha...

Boity Thulo addresses criticism of her cider range

Bakae hitmaker Boity Thulo has responded to criticism about the price of her range of alcoholic and nonalcoholic cider. Chatting to TshisaLIVE on the TshisaPOD series, Boity said she was aware of the negative commentary around the R200 per six pack price tag, as well as the range being sold exclusively at Shoprite Liquor. However, the star believes the drink is well worth the price. “I know there was a lot of criticism of the price, but there was also a lot of support. People were saying the BT signature obviously is less than other drinks on the market and for me, I think we have created a really premium drink. It's for a discerning palette. “We felt like while it may not appeal to everyone, I felt like everyone is getting good value from BT Signature. Because, even if you...

Juventus vs Parma: Pirlo Reacts to Ronaldo’s Failure to,Jump,Block Free-kick

  Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has reacted after Cristiano Ronaldo again faced criticism for an apparent reluctance to commit fully to blocking dangerous free-kicks. The Bianconeri boss admitted he has a decision to make on Cristiano Ronaldo after seeing the Portuguese fail to perform blocking duties in Juventus’ 3-1 win against Parma on Wednesday night. Ronaldo’s presence is often needed in defensive walls during free-kicks, given his height and frame. But the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has, however, faced criticism of late over his reluctance to perform this role. FC Porto fired beyond the 36-year-old during their Champions League game to claim a notable scalp and Parma also drilled over Ronaldo’s head in a Serie A outing on Wednesday. Juventus later won the ma...

Anele Mdoda hits back at ‘ugly without make-up’ jabs

It seems like it will be “Anele Mdoda vs Kelly Rowland” forever after the radio personality was again dragged by social media users this week. It all started when Anele posted an innocent selfie showing off her make-up game. While some were here for the look, others quickly dug up her previous criticism of US singer Kelly Rowland and used it against her. The star took to the TL to address the situation and remind followers that she is unbothered by the insults in her mentions. “The thing about Twitter is just because you send an insult does not mean I will be insulted. Save your data for when you leave Wi-Fi zones. Trust, sihappy, thina,” wrote Anele. A tweep replied to her in a now-deleted tweet, continuing to question her past opinions on make-up. Anele hit back. ...

George Bush Describes Republican Party as ‘Isolationist,Protectionist and, to a Certain Extent, Nativist’

Former US President, George W. Bush on Tuesday described the Republican Party, of which he is a member, as "isolationist, protectionist and, to a certain extent, nativist," his strongest and most direct criticism yet against the party since leaving office in 2009. The comment of Bush is sure to ring bells not only because he is a former Republican president but he has hardly made political comments since leaving the White House Bush recently talked about the need for a gentler approach to immigration by the Republican party,  but has not spoken negatively about the party even during the chaotic Trump era. Asked on Tuesday how he would describe the Republican Party as he sees it today, Bush told NBC's Hoda Kotb on the "Today" show, "I would describe it as ...

The German international has come under much criticism for his struggles in front of goal, but former Newcastle striker Shearer was hugely impressed by his efforts. “It was a brilliant run from Werner and Ziyech just has to put it in the back of the net,” Shearer told the BBC. “We said about Werner before the game, we highlighted some of the sitters he’s missed this season but that’s why he was in the team today. “That’s why he was asked to play on the last defender to run in behind because he knew City...
