MTV Base 's 2015 SA's Hottest MC

The period of elevated beefs and hot hip hop tunes is yet again upon us. The controversial MTV Hottest MC countdown that saw a lot of freestyles released in 2014 is back and promises to be even hotter.

Debates around who is the hottest MC in the country took place on all social platforms after the 'CaraCara' hitmaker K.O took the crown.

The debates took precedence on social media platforms compelling rappers such as Reason and Cassper Nyovest into releasing controversial freestyles.
A lot of people, including Tumi Molekane did not understand how Reason, Kwesta and Kid X did not make top 5.
"But I think it's also very important to understand that that list is an MTV Base list. They curated it, they put that thing together. You always have to look at it through that lens," he said.
Catch the 2015 SA's Hottest MC roundtable today and 2moro at 16:30 C.A.T on MTV Base (DStv chanel 322).

currently the list is sitting like this :
10. Ltido
9. Ifani
8. Kid X
7. Khuli Chana
6. Kwesta

Known as one of SA's key hip hop calendar events and one of the premier hip hop festivals on the continent, Maftown Heights offers a line-up of an eclectic blend of the best hip hop 2015 had to offer. The lineup features artists pioneering Motswako in Africa as well as leaders in the South African music industry across the genres of hip hop and Kwaito.
It is Maftown Heights' mission year on year to unite the Motswako family under one umbrella alongside the cream of SA and African hip hop/music. Each year an attempt is made to book as many acts from the Motswako fraternity as possible, and the final Motswako crew added to the line-up is based purely on those that were available for the booking.

"We are excited to host another explosive edition of what has now become the 2nd largest hip hop festival on the continent! We are especially proud to be partying with a purpose as part of the proceeds of the festival from this year and every year henceforth will be going towards assisting deserving students with tertiary funding.

Khaya Mthethwa 's Uprising DVD Recording On The 4th Dec

Idols season 8 winner, Clash of the Choirs 2014 Master and South Africa’s favourite Pastor’s kid, Khaya Mthethwa, is set to record his first live DVD on December 4 at The Durban Christian Centre in his hometown.

Born Khayelihle Mthethwa, the multi-award-winning singer, instrumentalist, writer, composer and all round musician will record the one-night only spectacular show The Uprising.
He has shaken the Gospel, Afro-soul and R&B world with his commanding voice and has now set his eyes on a new prize. The live DVD recording show is inspired by his second album, which he released in 2014 after the success of his debut album, For You.
The hitmaker of Ushilo Wena and Settle For Less became the apple of Mzansi’s eye when he was crowned the first black winner of the renowned reality music show Idols South Africa in 2008.
“The Uprising live DVD has always been a dream of mine to see manifest. The show promises to be an electrifying praise and worship session that will aspire to bring the audience closer to The Almighty,” says Mthethwa.
“Music is one of the most powerful tools that can move mountains and stop wars. I’m intending to share my gift and challenge our generation about the true Uprising of our Souls.” Mthethwa, who has built a name for himself through being one of the shining stars of multi-award-winning gospel group Joyous Celebration, has shaped his skills and grown both musically and spiritually.
Not only does he connect with the heavens through song, but he is also a leader and Pastor at Oasis Church in Durban.

Pearl Thusi Launches her own hair care range

 Pearl Thusi celebrated the launch of her own hair care range in collaboration with Afrobotanics on Thursday.  
It's no secret that one of Pearl's signature trademarks is her beautiful, all-natural Afro. 
And Black Pearl is a range, which is aimed at helping Black women out there take care of their natural hair. 
Pearl described the launch of her new range as a "dream come true." 
She has now decided to develop her own hair care range - which was launched this week.
"As my career soared my hair's reputation also garnered its own attention. I always thought a brand would approach me and use my hair and brand to market their brand. Time went by and I realised that waiting wasn't an option. I wasn't being approached because I'd always refuse to relax my hair. That would've been like selling my soul," says Thusi.
She realised many women desired to find products to maintain their natural hair, whether or not they planned to use extensions, wigs or weaves.
"I've been asked many times what I use on my hair. And I could never respond because I was also trying to find a brand to be loyal to. I was always trying to find a product I could rely on to keep my hair healthy, especially with all the stress my hair goes through.
"And I thought to myself ... I should just do my own hair care range and stop expecting someone else to save me," she says.
And so Black Pearl was born: a hair care product that caters for all types of hair from Caucasian, curly and frizzy.
"Because the Universe/God is always listening, Ntombenhle, (owner of AfroBotanics) and I met through Jennifer Bala and decided to collaborate.
"I was really nervous but it was an opportunity I couldn't let pass me by. I want women to feel beautiful with their own hair and to take care of their hair even when using extensions, braids or wigs and weaves. I shared my thoughts and ideas with Ntombi and Jennifer helped make it real."
About the name, she says: "I'd always promised myself that I would use that name for everything I developed or embarked on. Moreover, my afro is a black pearl.
"Apart from my name being Pearl and being a proud black woman, my hair is a representation of that, a big, bold African statement that was bestowed on me by my ancestors.
"[It is] A symbol of my personality and strength. My hair has been through a lot and yet it still stands proud to be curly. Like the grains of sand that make a pearl perfect in its imperfection, so is my hair. Without all the straightening and relaxing, I wouldn't know how amazing it is. It truly has a life of its own!"
Thusi says her products are as natural and organic as possible. "I love using pure oils too - like argon, coconut, castor and olive oil to maintain my hair. I shared ideas on how I would improve products that are already on the market and so tailored them specifically for women who want to have healthy, happy hair that isn't subjected to harsh and unnecessary chemicals."
Like other celebrities who have launched beauty products and failed, Thusi is confident that she's sitting on a gold mine.
"The people I'm working with are key to the success of this brand. [They are] Very different women who are invested in it and understand the struggles of women and their hair. I've been very involved in developing this so I hope that edge and the integrity of my involvement with this product will give people confidence to take it home with them. With more heads involved we can ensure the success of the product," she says.
The range comprises a shampoo, a conditioner, a leave-in conditioner and oil and will be sold at Game stores from R45 to R75.
"The products are natural so anyone can use them."
