The year is already off to a good start for a lot of our favourite stars like Bonang Matheba (new film coming up), Trevor Noah (he recently purchased a $20 million house) and A-Reece (invited to feature on Sway in the Morning). This is only the second week of the year, and our faves are already winning.
We're barely into the new year and we've already seen fake events being advertised. Someone thought it would be a great idea to lie about Drake coming to the country. I honestly thought people would stop doing this, especially after that International Women in Media Conference disaster. Oh, and don't even get me started on the infamous Tribe One Festival that never happened a few years ago.
International acts pulling a no-show
Ah, don't you just get excited when you hear that your favourite international act is coming to the country? Not all of us can afford to go overseas to watch our faves live on stage, so it's always a treat when they come to Mzansi. But for some reason, some of these artists tend to disappoint us.
Remember when Solange was supposed to come to Mzansi for the Afropunk Festival? Our hearts were broken when she announced that she was no longer coming. I suspect that we'll be seeing more of this in 2019.
International RnB has-beens gracing our shores
This one happens every single year. It's like South Africa is very welcoming when it comes to singers who haven't released any music in 10-20 years. For some reason, promoters love bringing people who no longer have that thing! I wonder who we're seeing this year? I bet it'll be a lot of people we've forgotten about!
Well, this is an obvious one. Just like any other relationship out there, celebrities couples also go through ups and downs. No one is immune to heartbreak, unfortunately, it’s just that celebs are in the spotlight which makes it extra difficult to deal with their breakups.
We’ll probably see many stars going their separate ways, and that’s fine, it’s part of life!
But still, I’m “predicting” that baby season will have many us feeling broody. Watch this space. Oh, and there'll probably be some pregnancy announcements too!
What else do you think is going to happen in ZAlebville in 2019?
