When all fails, eat the grass demmet!

Written by Super User.

GrassLife is hard shem and we all have problems. And we all must do what needs to be done. As a black child, I know that when all fails all I need do is get down on my knees (and pray, perv!) And when all that fails, then I can call mmaMoruti after church for a one on one,  tell her my issues and we can both pray about it and it will all go away.

MARA matšatšii a, it looks like things have changed. Gone are the days when praying involved closing your eyes and just speaking to the Lord, no honey, we eat grass now. I mean the Lord must know we mean business. I tell you, our pastors have this prayer thing on lock down now! I mean, can your pastor beat Pastor Lesego?

Mzansi’s superfine commentary

Written by Super User.

Baba“Ho thaaaaaaaata banna... hao sena maqhika” is a line every South African football fan is familiar with thanks to Baba Mthethwa. It is used to describe a team’s defeat in a match. Analysts and commentators play a huge part in football. I, for one, always watch the build ups to matches to hear what the analysts have to say and enjoy the commentary during the matches.

Zane Moosa is known for his puns, slick word plays and his witty statements. I will never forget when he was speaking about Pirates advancing to the finals of CAF on the TNL with Robert Marawa show. “Klate is DAINE…gerous while ROOI Mahamutsa is RED HOT at the moment. They also have OUPA Manyisa who is running like a YOUNGSTER these days. Jele will be HAPPY to lead the team but we all know they will be LUCKY to have Lekgwathi back in the team” he said. Viewers and the people at the studio were all in awe of Zane’s slick word play.
Isaacs ‘Shakes’ Kungwane is known to bring his ‘kasi flavour’ in the studio. Shakes is very interactive and always has something hilarious to share with us. He explains soccer terms in a ‘kasi’ way that makes it interesting but also effective because everyone can grasp what he is saying. We all know Shakes likes flair in the football field and players such as Masuku, Mbatha and Twala excite him and it brings joy to him when speaking about them.

Brian Mathe, Sizwe Mabena, Baba Mthethwa, Zama Masondo, Neil Tovey and Mark Gleeson  take commentary to a whole new level. They will make you enjoy the match even though it is boring. From the facts they give, the nicknames they give the players to the predictions, the commentary team is always appreciated. They make it easy for the viewers to relate to the players and always keep us in the loop of things.
Farouk Khan, Simba Marumo, Ace Ngcobo, Jerry Skhosana and Jimmy Tau are other analysts that the viewers appreciate. In the studios, it’s always “a jab, the uppercut and a hook”.

Bafana never loved us

Written by Super User.

BafanaDanceSo Bafana lost another game and did not qualify to go further than the group stages of the CHAN Tournament. Again, I ask why people have their panties in a knot. What was everyone expecting?
Well as a patriotic South African,  I have come up with a few theories as to why they lost the game on Sunday night:

• Shabba missed his hair salon appointment. So there he was, busy fixing his hair band throughout the match because he did not make it to the salon. We understand boo, I also don’t perform well when I don’t look my best. Oh and BTW Shabba, if you want you can cut that hair off. We don’t mind not seeing it on you anymore.

Mzansi’s New Kid On The Block

Written by Super User.

In this edition of Upcoming Talent we feature a young DJ who’s already making waves within Mzansi’s entertainment scene. Supta is mostly known as a former KovsieFM presenter and has recently just landed a spot at YFM. He started DJ'ng in 2010 whilst he was still in varsity at the University of the Free State. Supta is a B.A Corporate and Marketing communications graduate. He was born in a small town in the Eastern Cape called Aliwal North and he is the last born among his three siblings (all sisters)


In your opinion, what does it take to be a good DJ?

I think it’s the ability to know your music, read your crowd and most importantly make the people appreciate and dance to your music. A DJ must not play for himself, a DJ is an entertainer and therefore must entertain people.

Have you encountered any challenges that come with being on radio so far?

Yes, I have and it’s tough but the love I have for radio has pulled me through. Radio is such a powerful yet complex medium.

Where do you see house music going in the next 5 years?

I see it getting bigger and better as more and more people are becoming producers and creating beautiful music that people can appreciate and dance 2.

Can we expect to see you playing in gig/clubs around Jozi and Mzansi as a whole? ASupta22

Yes, of course - but it will take time for me to do so because it’s a very difficult platform to break into but in due time when I've showcased what I'm about, people can expect to see me at local clubs and events.

Who is your best DJ and why?

Black Coffee and Shimza , Personally I respect the way they play and the uniqueness that each one of them brought into the industry. Both understand that as a DJ you are a brand and uniqueness is key.

Any lucky lady?

At the moment there is no lucky lady in my life and I would like to keep it that way

Message to upcoming DJ's out there:

What got you there will take you further, Work hard, Give it your all and Pray
