Idols SA judge, reality TV star and author Somizi Mhlongo has been slaying over the past few years, but with all the success, Somizi says he has some regrets. One of those regrets was doing a radio show with Khanyi Mbau and Ntombi Ngcobo.

“Doing that radio show last year was something I regret. It was not a mistake, I did it because it was a business decision. I was asked to host the Samas last year and there were politics that I was on the ‘other side’ and they wanted to use SABC talent,” Somizi explained on Metro FM’s Great Escape show.

He adds that even though doing the show was the biggest regret of his career he couldn’t turn it down because it tied in with his Samas gig.

“But after that [the Samas] it was the biggest regret of my career. I always see the light in everything. I used it as a learning opportunity. It was preparing me for bigger things – the breakfast show,” he added.

Somizi is now a co-host on Metro FM’s The Fresh Breakfast alongside DJ Fresh.

Kelly opens up about that night


Singer and actress Kelly Khumalo’s world has never been the same since she lost her lover and boyfriend Bafana Bafana player Senzo Meyiwa. Kelly says even though her life has changed and her music has reached many people and she has grown in her life, Senzo and his passing is something that will never leave her.

Speaking about the night Senzo was gunned down Kelly said; ” I feel like I died there with him at that particular time. Because it’s like ‘awu, bengi happy five minutes ago, and the next minute the person that I love the most is gone’. And I’m not just dealing with the loss and the switch, I’m dealing with the entire country who’s bombarding me with a whole lot of things that I’m not responsible for.”

Kelly opened up about the subject on Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast earlier today.

Senzo was gunned down at Kelly’s family home in Vosloorus the East of Johannesburg in October 2014.

Kelly added that she hasn’t really healed from the incident as she still has many questions about the incident.  “It’s a process, and I don’t think I’ll safely say I’ve healed because I’ve got questions I’m like ‘what happened? Why would anyone do such a horrible thing?’ I feel like, I feel so robbed because there are certain things I’ll never have answers to, and I will never be at the place where I feel like I’ve healed.”

Kelly and Senzo had a baby girl called Thingo who Kelly now raises with her older brother Christian who is a child Kelly had with rapper Jub Jub.

There have been rumours that the Queen of Gqom, Babes Wodumo might not jet off to the US for the prestigious BET Awards. This is all because her VISA documents were not finalized.

However, DRUM spoke to Mampintsha of West Ink Records where Babes is signed on the matter. He revealed that they are still trying to get the interview date with the US consulate to be pushed for today. “It’s not that she is not going, we are still trying. Even yesterday we were working on it, we didn’t sleep. But it’s the issue of getting someone to sign and we are sent from one person to the next,” he reveals referring further questions to Melody Mhlongo of West Ink Records.

But Melody says people must calm down. “There were a lot of factors that contributed to these delays but I can’t go into details now. We are still trying to get an interview for her and we can’t say she is not going yet,” explains Melody who claims Babes isn’t hurt by this.
