Toolz, Ehiz & Jimmie Join Toke Makinwa On A Sizzling New Episode Of The Buzz

Published

on

On the latest episode of Showmax’s BBNaija show, The Buzz, Toke Makinwa was joined by Multimedia personality Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru-Demuren, Media Personality Jimmie Akinsola, and VJ Ehiz ‘Dadaboy’ Okoeguale to dissect the seventh weekend in Big Brother’s house.

The Weekend’s Highlights

Toke started the show with the weekend’s highlight, and the word ‘spicy’ was too weak to describe those two minutes. Toolz joined her to discuss the wild weekend. They started the discussions by talking about the selection of housemates this year. Toolz said she believed the housemates really studied the previous seasons and came up with strategies for their game to that end. She also shared that the friendship between Jackie B, Queen and Angel that we saw last week would only last as long as the game. They also gave a shoutout to Liquorose and her energetic “full workout” dances during the jacuzzi and house parties.

The Sailing and Sinking Ships

Jimmie started the conversation by saying that he always thought Whitemoney and Queen had a ‘brother-sister’ kind of relationship. But, he could see how Queen would misconstrue those shared moments as something romantic. Toolz says she gets Queen because she’s also territorial about her friends. And if she saw a ‘best friend’ of hers doing ‘best friend’ things with someone else, it would get to her. Toke interjected that Queen brought some content to Whitemoney and gave him a new side that cooking, singing, and cleaning failed to do.

They moved on to the budding relationship between Yousef and Angel. They all agreed that the teacher had “a release of energy” during his lap dance with the resident vixen. They said this release is the only thing that brought about the ‘you love/like me’ conversation the duo had afterwards in bed.

Standout Moments And Exclusive Content On The Buzz

Ehiz joined the other guests at this point to unravel the wild standout moments from this weekend. They got into the murky waters by dipping their feet into the Bermuda triangle between Jaypaul, Saskay, and Cross. Toke and Ehiz agreed that Saskay was the Queen of Boys. They discussed how she handled them during the Saturday night party. From the kiss with Jaypaul, the peck on Cross’s forehead and the joint moment they all had.

They moved to Angel and Cross’s fiery kiss and their weird moment in the garden. Ehiz joked that the two should create an ‘Only Fans’ account after they come out from the house so that he can subscribe to it. He then went ahead to follow her on Instagram while exclaiming that she’s his favourite person on the show. They talked about Yousef’s presence during one of Angel and Cross’s steamy sessions. Ehiz had only one question – do people still know he’s on the show? They quickly moved on to Cross and Angel’s dance. They all agreed that Angel was just living her best life and enjoying every moment of the game.

To end the show, Toke asked her guests for their most valuable player of the week. Ehiz chose Angel because she’s the highlight and keeps everyone on their toes. Toolz picked Yousef, saying she feels sorry for him after his moment with Cross and Angel. Jimmie chose Cross because he’s living his best life in the house. Toke had two MVPs, Yousef because he gets to release and Saskay because she’s playing the boys like it’s nothing.

Rosatom Supports Women’s Health In South Africa

Published

on

Rosatom together with the South African Tourism Ministry and the Russian Embassy to South Africa are providing support to young women from Mpuluzi High School in Mayflower. On October 15, the company held an inaugural event aimed at dealing with period poverty by providing women with personal care products and personal hygiene information.

Are you familiar with the term “period poverty?” It is a global sanitation issue affecting millions of females around the world because women and young girls who menstruate are still ostracized.

It is estimated that roughly 7 million South African girls on their period often miss one or more days of school, totaling up to 20 percent of the school year, and some drop out altogether. The cultural shame associated with menstruation often prevent women from studying and work.

According to UNICEF, 2.3 billion people worldwide live without basic sanitation, making it difficult for women and girls to manage their menstrual cycles. Poor hygiene during the menstrual cycle can in turn cause health risks related to the reproductive and urinary organs. Many also cannot afford personal hygiene products because of the “pink tax” (a markup on women’s products similar to men’s). Period poverty also affects psychological wellbeing as women become embarrassed of their own bodies.

In order to resolve this global issue urgently two things need to be done: breaking the taboo around a normal biological process and providing access to personal hygiene products.

Starting October 15, Rosatom began supporting the girls at Mpuluzi High School in Mayflower, Mpumalanga with sanitary products. The company has also organized a discussion on female hygiene, inviting a local expert to interact with the learners. The hygiene products were supplied by Palesa Pads, an organization, which manufacture reusable hygiene pads with a shelf life of up to 5 years, providing a reliable and environmentally friendly long-term solution to a critical problem faced by young women across the globe.

 “The biggest problem of the period poverty is that women have to choose between buying food and buying period products and it shouldn’t have to be a choice. The other issue is silence. Not enough people or companies talk about it. By supporting this initiative, we are not only helping girls, we are also raising awareness. We do hope to see more and more companies joining us in the fight against period poverty. We hope that in the future, this perfectly natural female process will no longer prevent girls and women from reaching their potential and fulfilling themselves because of missed opportunities,” exclaimed Evdokia Polyakovskaya, PR Manager at Rosatom Central and Southern Africa.

According to Ilya Rogachev, Russian Ambassador to South Africa: “My country has never been indifferent to the fate of African nations – in the past Russia rendered assistance to African nations in their liberation struggles against oppression. Today, all be it in a small way, we pledge our support in the liberation of young African women. I believe it is our common duty to help our children to walk along this thousand-mile-long path as long as we can, as we attach our best hopes for a better future to our children, and the generations to come.”

The event is only the first step towards achieving the UN SDG 5 (Gender Equality) in South Africa and overcoming the taboo and stigma surrounding the menstrual cycle. The company plans to continue raising this issue and expanding partnerships in the future.

Courtnaé Paul Gets Real On Her Thriving Career In The Local Entertainment Space

Published

on

Ever since she burst onto the scene as a B-Girl prodigy, Courtnaé Paul has continued to push the limits when it comes to her career. Today, she is an established musician, choreographer, media personality and influencer who never settles for anything less than perfection. The star just dropped her brand-new single ‘Ooh Wee’, announced her stint as a mentor and choreographer on the exciting new series ‘Dance Africa Dance’ and is one of the ambassadors for the exciting launch of the Volkswagen Golf 8 GTi.

Now, Courtnaé Paul opens up about her exciting career so far:

You just dropped a brand-new single ‘Ooh Wee’ with Da L.E.S, Money Badoo and Phantom Steeze. Talk to us a little bit about the inspiration behind the track.

The motive behind the song was really just to give people a good time. I wanted to create a vibe that makes you feel like we haven’t been in lockdown for as long as we have. As the country begins to open up, I wanted to bring the party vibe along with it too. 

What was it like working with these acts in the studio?

With Phantom Steeze and Money Badoo being new wave artists, and L.E.S being an OG in the game, this collaboration brought something exciting and unexpected to the scene. Pairing artists that are different but which complement each other it’s always tricky, but this one flowed and felt very natural. It has all the makings of a fire track and I am so excited that people are loving it.

You’ve recently released beautiful visuals for your single ‘No Other Way’ with Rowlene and Manu Worldstar. Tell us more about that.

I wanted the video to look like the song sounded and I was inspired to create a video from exactly how the music made me feel. I’ve got a deep love for Afro and Kizomba and the song plays in that spectrum as well. All this coupled with an amazing director like The Lotus Sutra made sure that everything we envisioned came to life and it’s a project I’m very proud of.

Obviously, you made a name for yourself as a B-Girl. How do you push yourself to being the best?

I push myself to being the best I can be. In this case, my best just so happens that my best is actually thee best. Haha! I’ve never been one to half-do anything, so if something has my interest you’ll really see it in the execution. This been a monster dance year for me so far. I won the Red Bull BC One B-Girl S.A. final and I will be off to Poland in November for the world final. I’ve also just recently won Breaking for Gold which will give me my SA colours and set my sites on the 2024 Olympics, with the first stop being in Paris this December.

You’re also a mentor and choreographer on Dance Africa Dance. What inspired you to be a part of that series?

I love being involved at the beginning of something – especially when it encompasses a fusion of culture, music and dance, everything I am incredibly passionate about. This is a show that started in India, travelled to Singapore and now has its first season in Africa. The show will be played in all 52 African countries, the UK and the Indian islands which is really exciting. I back anything that gives our talent a platform to shine which is why I was really excited to sign on to this series.

Collaboration is obviously incredibly important in progressing as both an entertainer and an influencer – a space you have also tapped into recently. What, in your opinion, is a great influencer?

I’m not sure what makes a great influencer but I find it works best when you’re authentic about the projects you work on. Social media has somewhat made all of us influencers, even if you never intended to be one. It’s allowed me to connect with my dream brands and create all-encompassing campaigns. I’m currently working on a campaign with VW called #GTI8OnTour as part of the JHB team alongside Donovan Goliath and Khutso Thaledi. This campaign sees us as an integral part of the launch, pushing out the information, testing the cars, encouraging fans of the car to download the app, play the game and win themselves tickets to the launch events around the country and even taking it offline where I’ll be DJ’ing at the launch fest in Jozi on 16 October.

What else do you have up your sleeve over the next few months?

Over the next few months I’ll be traveling to complete internationally, while releasing more music, dropping new music videos and collaborations with brands like G-Star RAW and Volkswagen. You can see me flying around in the Golf 8 GTi, DJ’ing at venues around the country, or on your screens every weekend for Dance Africa Dance on ZeeWorld. Join me for the ride!

For more information on #GTI8OnTour and how to win tickets to the car-meets in Cape Town at the CTICC Parkade on 2 October, Durban at the Cornubia Mall Parkade on 9 October and in Johannesburg at the Fourways Mall Parkade on 16 October, download the app here: http://golfgti8.onelink.me/CoRl/57881e5.
