I Never Dated A-Reece – Natasha Thahane

22 year old South African actress Natasha Thahane has dismissed claims that herself and rapper A-Reece dated. The New York Film Academy graduate was believed to have dated A-Reece at a point and they even set relationship goals for the Mgani video, performed by A-reece off his paradise album.

Natasha told Lasizwe on Massiv Metro last week, that she friendzoned Reece. “I was so good at my job. When people even started believing that I am actually in a relationship with this person. No. Never. I am a professional friendzoner. I didn’t even want to kiss him in the first video. The second one, I was like, ‘hmmm, okay.’ But I am a professional friendzoner.”

A-Reece however was nicer in his explanation of things. “We just bumped into each other genuinely and it’s always a nice time because it is Natasha. She is bright. She always has some nice, smart things to say and it always puts me in line,” he told Zaziwa earlier this month.

Black Coffee & Euphonik Slam Tito Mboweni

Black Coffee and DJ Euphonik have both dragged former Bank of South Africa governor Tito Mboweni after the politician questioned the usage of freedom and the profession of DJ-ing.

Tito Mboweni wrote on his official Twitter page, “The question today is what are we doing with the Freedoms we now enjoy! Are we taking these for granted? Think, think!! These could be taken away from us as we tendering, dancing, partying and DJ-ing!!”. That sparked controversies in a world where DJs are some of the richest entrepreneurs.

Check out the responses of the two DJs below!

@euphonik

With respect 🙏🏾 I can’t believe you mentioned DJs and tenderprenuers in the same sentence. DJs do a great job of uniting this country and what we do allows people to forget, even if for the night, the senseless looting and pilaging most of your colleagues do in this country

Tito Mboweni@tito_mboweni

The question today is what are we doing with the Freedoms we now enjoy! Are we taking these for granted? Think, think!! These could be taken away from us as we tendering, dancing, partying and DJ-ing!!
