Man Ordered To Leave Mall In South Africa For Wearing ‘Indecent’ African Attire

A casual trip to a Johannesburg mall on Wednesday turned into a nightmare when Ndebele activist and author Thando Mahlangu was allegedly hounded out of the shopping complex by a man who described himself as the mall owner. His sin, apparently, was that he went into the Boulders shopping centre wearing Ndebele traditional attire. The Ndebele are one of South Africa's minority ethnic groups. In the video clip, the man tells Mahlangu that there is a right of admission and that he doesn't condone Mahlangu's outfit and he must leave. The man continues to tell Mahlangu that the mall is a public place and he is dressed indecently, while Mahlangu responds by saying he is dressed in African attire. “You are telling me I'm not supposed to wear African [clothes] in Africa,” Mahlangu s...

Sithelo Shozi Defends Herself After Being Labelled A “Sexual Predator”

Wondering why DJ Sithelo Shozi has been given the nickname "R Sthelly"? Well, social media is "disgusted" at the age gap between Sithelo and baby daddy Andile Mpisane. Andile recently turned 20 years old and on his birthday, Sithelo confirmed their relationship on Instagram, which raised many eyebrows. The DJ waited till Andile turned 20 years old before she can 'announce' their relationship. A 7-year age gap is not so bad, right? But what tweeps are trying to figure out is when did they start dating. Sithelo is 27 years old and she started dating Andile when he was apparently 17 years of age. This means that Sithelo at the time would have been 24 years old. Many comparisons have been made, seemingly the age gap between AKA and his fiancé Nelli Tembe, who dated AKA when she was 2...

Chatting to us recently, the hitmaker delved deeper into what her tweets entailed. “It comes with feeling that the industry is quite connection based.
