Boity VS Sbahle

Boity Thulo and Sbahle Mpisane were announced as the next hosts for Huawei’s upcoming live stream, which will see the pair competing against one another to see who loses the most calories.

Boity shared a tweet which revealed that she was starting to exercise again, stating, “’I’m so grateful I have loved myself enough to get back into exercising and eating healthier. It has uplifted me in ways I did not know I needed!”.

In a recent Instagram post, the star reveals the main reason behind her weight gain and how she overcame it. "One of the biggest reasons behind my crazy weight gain was my horrible diet. I went overboard, became lazy and then fell into a rut."

For Boity, working out has never been an issue but eating healthy has been a problem. "Working out has been something I’ve always been able to get back into but a healthy diet has been my greatest challenge."

With her hard work in the gym, Boity has got her body back and she's banging hot. Her snaps on social media left many tongues wagging.

Boity Management Struggles

While many may think that just because one is an artist and they always release great hits, that is not the case. There is a lot that happens behind the scenes, and Boity is finally opening up about the struggles she's had to endure so early in her music career.

Boity's rap skills have proved her critics wrong with hit after hit. The only thing that seems to be holding Boity back is her contractual agreement. In February, Sunday World published a report that Boity had taken agency Ade Holdings Property (Ade Agency), the one she has an agreement with, to oversee her deals with Huawei and SAB.

All this is quite frustrating for the rapper, because she feels like like people might lose interest in her because she's not releasing anything, but yet there are matters holding her back. The Bakae hitmaker shares how the lawyer she trusted was working with someone behind her back and got her to sign a contract that was not in her favour. 

Hopefully all matters will be resolved amicably and the rapper can continue to release more great hits.
