Who else but the radiant “Black Pearl” has the guts and sass to crack the whip and mediate the “Bonfire of the Vanities” when famous rapper AKA will get roasted by ten of South Africa’s biggest names? “Mama Pantha” has done it again, breaking yet another social boundary by being the first woman in Africa to host what promises to be the Roast of the century. The Comedy Central Roast of AKA in partnership with Showmax is coming to The Teatro at Montecasino on Thursday, 21 February 2019.
With her grand reputation for sophisticated wit and oozing charisma, she will step into the pit with 6-inch heels to throw shade on this spectacular bout. Sharper than a scalpel, she has chased her dreams faster than a “pantha” could catch a mouse, rising from strength to strength in her local and international career. As presenter on both MTV’s Lip Sync Battle Africa and the highlight rated MTV Base’s Behind The Story, she is the hottest candidate for knowing how to fuel the fire or calm the storm in this role as Comedy Central Roast Master.
This is the woman every woman wants to be; tall, graceful, smart and the only one who can walk through fire and come out “pearl-fectly” groomed!
Pearl Thusi said, “I’m very excited to be the Roast Master and to work with Comedy Central for the first time. To be the first female Roast Master in Africa and first black woman globally is a great achievement. To AKA – we’ve talked a lot of mess on twitter and in private, but now we’re going to settle this in front of the world, with no one to protect you. This is deeper than rap beef. It will be on stage and to your face. I honestly can’t wait. Oh, and I won’t be alone as I’ve got a team of Roasters with me. So poetic. Just remember: COMPOSURE, COMPOSURE!”
The Comedy Central Roast of AKA in partnership with Showmax will be hilarious, thought-provoking and without reservations, this Roast is the perfect grill for an audience who enjoys sitting on the edge of their seats.
Dillon Khan, Vice President for Comedy Central and Creative Services at Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa): “Our phones have been inundated with celebrities who want to be on the Comedy Central Roast especially with AKA in the firing line. Having someone as fierce as Pearl at the helm means AKA is guaranteed to be hit close to home. The revelations will be televised.”
Candice Fangueiro, Showmax’s Head of Content concluded, “Showmaxers love to laugh but we still had to take our brave pills to put the last Roast on Showmax fully uncensored. This fresh Roast led by Pearl is set to take things even further – viciously funny and downright rude, just the way our viewers like it. I can’t wait.”
Filming of the Comedy Central Roast of AKA in partnership with Showmax will be open to the public and will take place on Thursday, 21 February 2019 at The Teatro, Montecasino in Johannesburg.
CHEATING SCANDAL!!! Akhona responds to Scoop Makhathini’s Twitter rant!
This is the thing about being betrayed by the one that you love dearly, you almost want to tell the whole world about that person’s not so good deeds. Such was the case with one of Mzansi’s most revered hip hop commentator and all round entertainer, Siyabonga Scoop Ngwekazi, who allegedly took to his Twitter page last night and vented about his girlfriend, Akhona Carpede – accusing her of cheating.
Twitter was lit after Scoop dragged Akhona as he posted a series of tweets expressing just how hurt he was by her actions. In one of the posted, he even included a photo of Akhona and the alleged guy that was regarded as a”Best friend” by her.
However, a few moments later Scoop then stated that his Twitter account was actually hacked, therefore his rant about his girlfriend is false. This move from Scoop left many Tweeps wondering if his account was truly hacked or there’s actually more to the story than meets the eye?
Well, earlier yesterday Akhona posted what seemed like a subtle jab surrounding her and Scoop currently. The general tone of her tweet have left many convinced that there was no hacking of accounts on Scoop’s end, as he had maintained after the frenzy last night.
Taking to Twitter, the following was posted by Akhona.
Be still Madlomo. No clapback or retort to your detractors is worth it. Be content to play the game that is being a strong, independent black women. Those that love me, I love you. Those that loathe me, I love you too.❤️ #Akhona pic.twitter.com/CL49VQxRg1

It’s interesting how she mentioned the word “loath” in this tweet as that’s exactly what was tweeted by Scoop’s alleged hacker.
“YOU KNOW MY NUMBER!!! Zahara’s message to her fans
AFTER singer Zahara’s explosive accusations against her former record label bosses, the star has been inundated with bookings, but she says the bookings were still done via her old management with which she parted ways.
The star took to her Instagram account to clarify through a video post, that now bookings should be done via Oyama Dyosiba, who does publicity for her, as well as bookings.
The Loliwe hitmaker went on to thank her fans for their unwavering support after the revealing that TS records owes her millions of rands.
The star whose real name is Bulelwa Mtukutana went on to MoFlav’s show The Drive to dish out some dirt on how she was allegedly swindled out of millions of rands by TS records.
However, both Sbu and TK Nciza have denied that they owe her money and claim that they paid her all the money that was owed to her.
