Actor TK Dlamini will be taking a hiatus from acting to prepare for his new venture, becoming a father.
Uzalo fans were shocked to see one of their most loved characters, Mastermind Maphumulo, gunned down by a police brigade in an episode which aired on Tuesday, 7 August. Many viewers have since speculated that actor Ntokozo ‘TK’ Dlamini may be making his exit from the show. Dlamini has now confirmed that he will be taking a break from television to focus on becoming a parent and on his construction and events businesses.
On Wednesday, Dlamini retweeted a statement about his break from the screen. The tweet reads, “Actor and Business man @TK_DEE … hints he will be taking time off tv to welcome his daughter & focus more on his events & construction business & does not rule out new tv work as some tv shows have been knocking at his door for a while now .. simfisela okuhle kodwa #mastermind.”
TK Dlamini broke into the local television industry in 2014 after landing the role of Mastermind on Uzalo. He initially auditioned to play the character Mxolisi, but was cast as Mastermind instead. He also owns an events company called TKD Holdings, and a construction company called Sokhulu D Constructions. He is expecting his first child with actress Jessica Nkosi.
Kelly Khumalo humiliated as EFF supporters blame her for causing Senzo Meyiwa’s death
Thousands of EFF supporters chanted the name of slain Bafana Bafana star Senzo Meyiwa when Kelly Khumalo took to the stage yesterday.
This was at the Chatsworth Sports Stadium, south of Durban, where the supporters gathered for the party’s provincial manifesto launch. Kelly Khumalo had been dating a married Senzo Meyiwa when he was fatally shot allegedly by intruders at her home in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, five years ago.
After performing one song and getting ready to perform another, members of the crowd towards the back of the stadium grew louder with chants of Meyiwa’s name, to which Khumalo signalled the DJ and said “one more and then I’m out of here”.
She left the stage after the second song. Khumalo’s manager, Gavin Gutu of Universal Music, later told Sowetan: “I’m not aware of the incident and I don’t have a comment about it.”
Beyond this incident, other performers, including Kelly’s sister Zandie Khumalo, L’Vovo and Danger of Big Nuz fame, kept party supporters in good spirits.
Over a week ago, Khumalo criticised the police for their lack of accountability and action in the Meyiwa’s murder case.
She insisted on eNCA that officials had everything they needed to make arrests.
“I don’t know why police have not found the perpetrators. There were fingerprints. A hat (belonging to one of the armed men) was found. There were witnesses,” she said at the time.
A frustrated Khumalo added that she didn’t know “what the public wants from me”.
The Orlando Pirates goalie and Bafana Bafana captain was shot and killed in 2014 in what was believed to be a botched robbery. Police minister Bheki Cele had promised that there would be arrests in the case by December, then “maybe even by Easter”.
Meanwhile, EFF’s commander-in-chief Julius Malema was expected to address supporters at 1pm but by then he had yet to deliver his keynote address at the Maphiniki Sports Complex in Kuruman, Northern Cape.
According to the EFF’s official Twitter account, Malema was meant to address supporters in the Northern Cape at 10am and then travel to KwaZulu-Natal. Just after 2pm, the EFF tweeted that Malema had arrived in the Northern Cape. There was a strong police presence in Chatsworth. Despite the long wait in the heat for Malema, the spirits by his followers remained high despite the delay.
In the wake of major unrest in the province, pertaining to a high-profile political murder case, ongoing issues of a lack of basic services and high levels of corruption and crime, Malema’s KZN keynote address was expected to be a major talking point and subjected to scrutiny by opposition parties, vying to gain a foothold in the country’s third poorest province.
NOT AGAIN!!! Twitter MOCKS Itu Khune for his ‘trash’ fashion sense!
Itumeleng Khune mocked by Twitter for his jeans. On Monday, the Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana star took to Twitter to share a motivational message with his followers. But it appears fashion sense has managed to dribble past Mzansi’s number one keeper and put one in the back of the net.
Itumeleng Khune is well known for his brilliance between the posts. Strikers become terrified when they have to face him as not many are able to score against him. His tweet received an overwhelming reaction. But the focus was not on the message itself.
Khune tweeted a message with a picture of himself: “I still don’t understand how people are afraid to see each other WIN!? There is so much room in the industry for your uniqueness! Don’t let people try to dim your light because it shines too bright for their eyes to see!!
#Fact ?? #MondayMotivation.” Tweeps focused on his pair of jeans instead, saying it was not stylish. His fans said it was a “No no”.
And this is how Twitter reacted to Khune’s sense of fashion:
I still don’t understand how people are to afraid to see each other WIN!? There is so much room in the industry for your uniqueness! Don’t let people try to dim your light because it shines too bright for their eyes to see!! #Fact 😉 #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/X6b5M0i3UA

UNDER FIRE!!! DJ Zinhle dragged for taking AKA back!
A picture truly does tell a thousand words, doesn’t it? One glance at the recent photograph of musicians and seemingly couple, DJ Zinhle and AKA, it is quite obvious that love lives there. These two were photographed during a special and sacred moment as they smooched away, with no care in the world.
Twitter was set abuzz regarding a particular image of house DJ Zinhle and entrepreneur and Rapper and businessman, AKA. The exchange happened at the rapper’s long awaited concert at The Square in Pretoria. #AKAOrchestraOnTheSquare was trending at number one earlier today hence AKA took a rather unconventional presentation of his music in general, with a 30 piece orchestra and the usual live band.
During some backstage interactions, AKA and Zinhle got down to their own sweet and short moment as they were photographed sharing what seemed like a smooch. This is not the first time they have shared a kiss, their lips crossed paths recently at an event in Kwa Zulu Natal.
At the end of the day love wins 😍😍❤❤

However DJ Zinhle who is all about women empowerment left many of her followers a tad disappointed as she had been regarded as a ”Queen” and patching things up with a AKA might not be the wisest of moves. Below are just some of the interesting comments on Twitter.
Clearly Dj Zinhle NEVER moved on😳

In a recent article on TimesLive, Dj Zinhle reportedly gushed about her man spoiling her with shoes that cost a whopping R25,000. She admits she is in a relationship and although she doesn’t say who she is dating, the pictures speak for themselves. Speaking of those expensive shoes, The mother of one said the following:
”I went to Louis Vuitton so many times looking for these shoes. So many times. And I couldn’t find them in my size. But my boyfriend found them. Amazing. Thank you baby.”
The many times that AKA and Zinhle have spent together include, enjoying some down time on Zinhle’s turntables and also who could ever forget those cryptic photos that these two posted on their respective Instagram accounts when they were on holiday together.
The pure love between AKA and DJ Zinhle is palpable in these recent pictures that they keep posting across social media platforms. That kiss revealed a lot about the state of their relationship.
There is more to this relationship than meets the eye. We can’t wait for more enthralling revelations.
