The apology came to fruition after Moja Love released a statement apologising for the homophobic comments she made a few weeks ago. “I would like to say to every bisexual, transgender (and) gays. I would like to apologise from the bottom of my heart. I didn’t mean it like that.”

The Lion King is out and Khanyi isn’t impressed with Beyonce, so am I:
“The Lion King” remake had mixed reviews from US movie critics. When the first batch of reviews came out the film was sitting at 59%. Two days later I checked it and it was on 56% as I write this post it’s at 52% on Rotten Tomatoes.
What is a Tomatometer? It is used to measure the score, which is based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics. This makes it the most trusted measurement of critical recommendation for every movie fan out there.
Theatre kids know about this because back in the day when a play was terrible, by that I mean ghastly, the audience would not only boo the actors but throw anything that was at hand – vegetables, fruits, and drinks included. Its also the reason why Wendy Williams would say “don’t throw tomatoes!” when she’s about to say something ridiculous.
Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly Collaborate on the Lion King album and the country is ecstatic!
Beyonce said: The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa. […] I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa. […] The soundtrack becomes visual in your mind.”
