mzansi needs to sober up

OUR country is on the verge of opening up its economy. This is a great step forward, if to keep afloat during the global financial crisis caused by COVID-19. I believe this shouldn’t compromise the progress that our country has made as a result of the lockdown. But some South Africans are worried about the ease of restrictions on alcohol trading. Because if it isn’t closely monitored, booze could lead to great devastation. As with cigarettes, South Africans love sharing their drinks, which could lead to a spike in new COVID-19 infections. So, I’m of the view that the Minister of Trade and Industry, Ebrahim Patel, and the Coronavirus Command Council should enforce more restrictions on the sale of alcohol. The opening up of alcohol trade, if not put under the microscope,…

moripe pleads with tshwane giants!

AGEING Lucas “Masterpieces” Moripe is losing sleep over the Atteridgeville football stadium that was named after him. The 70-year-old old greatest ball player of the 70s, known as “the god of football” by fans, is worried that the Lucas “Masterpieces” Moripe Stadium might turn into a white elephant. Much as he is happy the 35 000-seater stadium was named after him, he wants to see the two biggest Tshwane teams – Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United – continue using the venue for home matches. But to his nightmare, Sundowns have since moved to Loftus Versfeld Stadium where their billionaire club president Patrice Motsepe owns shares for the Blue Bulls Company, and took the team along with him. Much as SuperSport are still using the facility for their home matches, the question remains: for how…

jabu’s paid her dues!

BANYANA BANYANA coach Desiree Ellis has expressed her admiration for South African Under-20 women’s coach Jabulile Baloyi. Ellis believes Baloyi has what it takes to make history by helping Basetsana qualify for their first-ever World Cup tournament. Having helped Banyana make history when they made their maiden World Cup appearance in France last year, Ellis tips Basetsana to follow and qualify for the 2020 African U-20 Women’s World Cup.

my life is in danger, says scelo

AFRO-SOUL singer Scelo Gowane has been on the run since March. According to the musician, a group of thugs is hot on his heels after witnessing them shoot and injure one of his two friends. Three tsotsis broke into his home studio in Newlands East, KZN. The criminals robbed the singer and his late friend out of valuables including cellphones, cash and studio equipment. The Uma Esehamba hitmaker said there was a hit on him as “some people” were jealous of his work. Explained Scelo: “Since the attack, my life and those of those around me have been in danger. I now use an old cellphone as its location can’t be traced. “The thugs left me with nothing. I’ll have to start afresh and buy new studio equipment.” He said he also lost music he was soon…

unpaid royalties drama!

THERE’S a war between South African Music Rights Organisation (Samro) and award-winning musician Mpho Tinyiko “Azah” Mphago. At the heart of the issue is unpaid royalties. According to Azah, his 2016 debut album Batswadi was and is still played by various radio stations but Samro refuses to pay him his royalties. “When I realised it was being played on various radio stations I decided to register it with Samro. “But years later, Samro had some internal issues and I wasn’t really bothered because they didn’t necessarily concern me. “In 2018, I decided to go back to Samro to ensure this album was properly registered. “I also wanted to make sure their internal issues didn’t affect my performance royalties. At that time, I was managed by Mandla Maseko,” he explained. “When we arrived at Samro, we discovered that…
