cassper nyovest and prince kaybee are at it again

Alyssia Birjalal alyssia.birjalal@inl.co.za Rapper Cassper Nyovest is back on the Twitter streets wrapped up in a Twar with DJ and music producer Prince Kaybee. It all started when Kaybee took to the social media platform to air his thoughts on celebrities being disconnected from their fans. He wrote: “Another thing about celebrities is the disconnect to the fans, they can’t seem to put back value where they got it from. “For instance you give away samples to celebrity friends and never to the people that bring the value, so now it creates a talking point but never an impact.” The post was clearly targeted at Nyovest, who recently posted numerous pictures of himself giving his away samples of his newly released sneakers, RF990, to his celebrity friends and influencers like…

teachers in panic over circular fear jobs are under threat if not vaccinated

Sisonke Mlamla sisonke.mlamla@inl.co.za A POORLY-WORDED circular has caused panic among teachers who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19, and who fear they might lose their jobs. The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has been blamed for its “confusing” circular to schools last week and which has been shared on social media. Progressive Principals’ Association spokesperson Anthea Adriaanse said there was no reference in the circular to teachers losing their jobs if they declined the vaccine, but it stated that while the DBE respected the rights of teachers who declined, it reserved the right to subject them to the procedures as stated in the Labour Relations Act read in conjunction with the Employment of Educators Act. “What is questionable in the circular is the requirement that those who were not vaccinated…

boks have their work cut out

WYNONA LOUW wynona.louw@inl.co.za THE Springboks have said it: their backs are against the wall going into the second Test of the Series against the British & Irish Lions. And that alone makes them dangerous.

Speaking during a team announcement press conference for the second Test earlier this week, Springboks head coach Jacques Nienaber – who named three changes to the starting line-up for the must-win encounter – said that they needed “just five more points” to come out on top in the second fixture…
