Cape Town – The dance floor is heating up as we approach the finale of South Africa’s Strictly Come Dancing.
We got to have a quick chat with the 4th contestant to leave the show, Siv Ngesi.
The funnyman gave us insight on what happens off-stage and told us about his favourite moves, his favourite outfit and who he thinks the winner will be!
“How do you feel about having been the last comic standing on Strictly Come Dancing?”
“It’s weird,” Siv says. “You realise it is more than just a dancing competition and there is only so much you can do and the rest is up to the public. It was a great experience and a lot of fun, I am quite shattered not to have gone further, because it felt like I hadn’t even started.”
“Do you think the mention from Helen Zille on Twitter affected your popularity on the show in any way?”
This is what she posted:
“If it did, if that is why I ended up going home and if people couldn’t look past it then I am happy to be back home in Cape Town. At the end of the day you realise that it is not really a dancing competition, it is more of a voting competition.”
“Name the top 3 dance moves you learned while on the show.”
“Anything to do with my hips,” Siv says with a chuckle. “To be honest I never really listened to the names of the moves that I learned I just tried to indicate the move itself as much as possible.”
“Would you wear any of your dance costumes again, if yes where would you wear it to?”
According to Siv he will be purchasing the pilot outfit worn in episode 5.
“I think I’ll wear it again for the fun of it, I really enjoyed it.”
“What do you have lined up next?”
Siv tells us he has gone straight back to work in Cape Town and has a busy schedule lined up. “I have a couple of jobs I am busy with at the moment and then I start shooting two new TV shows at the end of this year beginning of next year.”
“Who do you think is going to win Strictly Come Dancing?”
“In all honesty, the thing about Strictly is that the person with the most votes will win rather than the best dancer. I think Asish could win it. You can’t even begin to imagine how much support he has. So all the best to him.”
This is good news for both camps. Goodlyfe crew and Young Zee’s management have entered a signed agreement to do a project together. The terms of the contract state that Goodlyfe will not only do a song with Young Zee but also go ahead to shoot a video together and will be paid 20,000 dollars in return which is a approximately Ugx50 Million.
This comes a few days after Young Zee changed management from Swangz Avenue to a solo promoter Shadrack Kuteesa, after his father accused the former of not doing enough to elevate his son’s music career.
As the Neverland residents seek a nod in the forthcoming Channel O Music Video Awards they have focused on releasing quality videos among which is their recent “Amaaso” shoot featuring Pallaso,we highly anticipate the video with Young Zee will be of great quality as well.
Days after Billionaire Suleiman Mbuga bought himself a brand new ride BMW X6 away from his Hummer series, he has shifted the favour to his singing girlfriend Leila Kayondo by getting her a brand new BMW convertible.
The ‘Morning Breakfast’ singer has failed to contain her excitement as she can’t stop telling pals about her new ride.”It’s the topic in all her conversations now,” a close pal revealed.
The ride comes after Mbuga facilitated a fully paid vacation for his singing lover to the States and UK. At this pace soon we could be shocked by wedding bells from the two lovebirds.
The CEO big talent Eddy Kenzo launched his Kamunguluze album and what was anticipated to be a flop turned a mega success. For the record Kamunguluze album launch registered bigger crowd than Bebe Cool’s Kokodiosis album launch held a few weeks back. The launch was held last Friday, the 25th of October 2013 at Kyadondo rugby grounds.
The curtain raisers who came on stage first were singing for a lesser crowd in the early hours of the night, but to people’s surprise, Kyadondo was almost full as party animals stormed Kyadondo. By the time Kenzo jumped onto the stage at around 10pm, Kyadondo was packed. He made a stunning move of arriving riding a horse. He performed many of his hits starting with Zivuga, Akaserengeto, Super Power, Stress Free, Yanimba, Stamina, Kamunguluze to mention but a few.
Guest performers of the night were Leone Island boss Dr. Jose Chameleone, the Ghetto Gladiator Bobi Wine, fellow singer Tip Swizzy, fine rapper Keko, Rema and other upcoming artistes.
He thanked his fans through his face book page:
“I will always praise you Almighty Allah (God) six years back I was in the middle of the dark forest the only thing I could see was a beam of light but it was far miles away but with your love and support I have managed to move some miles, you have made me a real dream maker. Thanx for keeping a blind ear to my enemies you have always stood on my side!! Almighty Allah reward my people with happiness as you have done to me because this is beyond my hands yesterday the people of Mukono you managed to set a record of filling up the place to capacity before 9:00 PM. Thanx to all artist, media personalities, Radio and TV stations ,companies and Friends.”
The parties are not being named to protect the children involved – the former couple have two.
In papers filed at the Johannesburg High Court, the ex-wife claims the affair destroyed her 13-year-marriage, and she wants R200000 – R100000 for contumelia (impairing her dignity and self-respect) and R100000 for loss of comfort, society and services of her then spouse.
The 29-year-old mistress, who tied the knot with her new partner in June, admits the affair, but hit back, saying that the marriage had already started crumbling when the relationship began.
Plus, she added, the former wife had “condoned the adultery”.
In court papers, she also accused the ex-wife of having affairs of her own. The ex-wife denies this.
In an interview with Sunday World this week, the ex-wife had harsh words for the woman she accuses of stealing her man.
“The once loving man, who would not spend a day without phoning me and the children, now wants nothing to do with me,” she said.
She said she had known her former husband (54) for 17 years and they were “madly in love”.
“He once told me he can’t live without me. We did everything together. Then this woman came and destroyed what I worked hard to build in years,” she said.
Speaking through tears, she said she discovered the illicit relationship two years ago, four months before she and her husband divorced.
“Signs of him cheating were there, but I ignored them. For five years my husband was constantly on ‘business’ trips and didn’t sleep at home,” she said.
Her suspicions were confirmed, she said, when she saw a receipt from a travel agency with information that her husband had been on a “honeymoon” trip to a boutique hotel in Zanzibar.
She said the trip had been booked just weeks after he had moved out of their marital home – and before their divorce had been finalised.
“I suspect their affair started soon after she was employed by the company four years ago. My husband changed. What hurt most . that they tied the knot in Jamaica – the same place my husband promised to take me to,” she said.
But she’s adamant the lawsuit isn’t about money. “This woman took what didn’t belong to her and that is theft,” she said.
The lawyer for her ex-husband and his new wife said such disputes were “highly emotional and subjective”.
“The allegations by the plaintiff have not been tested under cross-examination, nor has evidence been led on the defendant’s version. None of the plaintiff’s allegations against our clients have been proved in a court of law.”
Cape Town lawyer Peter Baker said a person in similar circumstances could sue for up to R500000 for contumelia-related damages, but would have to prove that the third party knew about the marriage before they embarked on a sexual relationship. It’s also necessary to have evidence, such as SMSes or e-mails, of the two declaring their love for each other.
What happened to the ladies at Lulo’s album Launch. Shwa’s eye saw a platter of many men…
Don’t forget to grab a copy of the SundayWorld next Sunday to catch what Shwashwi is up too!
However, the ‘Kokodiosis’ singer was absent and the ‘Magnetic’ singers took the opportunity to trash Bebe Cool. According to sources at the venue, Radio & Weasel vowed to teach Bebe cool a lesson come December 6th at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
The singers further claimed that Bebe Cool will have a chance to perform to perform for a big crowd for the first time. “As Goodlyfe, we are used to performing for big crowds unlike Bebe Cool.
We are hoping he gets money to complete his house in Kiwatule and stop renting because for the first time he is going to get large sums of money from a show” Weasel remarked.
Radio further claimed that Bebe Cool is as old as his grandfather because he used to listen to his (Bebe Cool) songs when he was in secondary. We are definitely sure the Gagamel boss will not let this go quietly. Over to u Bebe Cool.
