And the winner is…..Paxton Fielies


CAPE TOWN – Idols South Africa winner Paxton Fielies says that she’s now setting her sights on building her singing career.

The Capetonian was crowned the winner of 13 season on Sunday in Johannesburg.

Cape Town teenager Paxton Fielies bagged the most votes to become one of the youngest winners of Idols SA 2017.

The petite 17-year-old won the title at a spectacular finale at Carnival City in Johannesburg on Sunday evening.

Fielies received the majority of the viewers’ votes when she and Mthokozisi Ndaba‚ 25‚ from KwaMashu in Durban‚ made the final two after months of battle against thousands of contestants.

On Sunday‚ accompanied by the multi award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir‚ Fielies performed Stand Up for Love by Destiny’s Child and Ndaba sang R. Kelly’s The Storm Is Over. They also collaborated on a remix of Back To The Beach by Kyle Deutsch and Shekinah.

An excited Fielies‚ who sacrificed her Grade 11 year‚ said she had decided with the support of her mother that 2017 would be a risk-taker year.

“It was a risk worth taking. But I intend completing my studies while doing gigs and shows. My goal is to make it internationally.

“The highlight apart from winning Idols was performing on my birthday during the season‚” said Fielies.

Fielies said she knows people appreciate her talent and will continue to support her.

She said every week was a difficult week as you didn’t know who was going home‚ on top of learning a new song.

“But here I am because I worked very hard to be where I am. I celebrated every performance knowing how hard I worked. I did receive criticism sometimes but I didn’t let it get me down.”

Fielies will begin recording her album in January.

The teen thanked her family and fans for supporting her journey.

“In my community there’s a lot of gangsterism and there’s a lot going on. For them to just gather, for just one day, is amazing. It shows the support is still there. It shows they support youngsters. I would like to thank everyone who gathered to watch the show.”

Flakka Dangers


Flakka

PANIC has risen in South Africa with the synthetic drug Flakka, also known as the ‘zombie drug’, having hit the shores of Durban.

Various videos of people allegedly under the influence of the drug have surfaced on social media with people doing bizarre and completely absurd things.

People who take the drug are often left unable to talk and have no idea what is going on around them until the drug wears off. When people take the drug, they become a clear danger to themselves and others.

The drug is said to cause hallucinations, spikes in body temperature, an increased sex-drive, panic and hysteria to its users.

The drug can make users have feelings of super strength coupled with a pure feeling of rage.

So why would anyone want to use a drug of this calibre?

Research has shown that flakka affords users the same high as cocaine at an extremely low prize.

One of the earliest stories of Flakka in Durban was that of a man who bit off a chunk of someone’s arm while high.

Despite it being a cheap alternative, flakka has a worse effect on the neurological system as it stays in the brain longer than cocaine.

The reality behind the theory of killer game ‘Blue Whale’


The Blue Whale game or Blue Whale Challenge is believed to be a suicide game wherein a group of administrators or a certain curator gives a participant a task to complete daily — for a period of 50 days — the final of which is the participant committing suicide. Participants are expected to share photos of the challenges/tasks completed by them.
These daily tasks start off easy — such as listening to certain genres of music, waking up at odd hours, watching a horror movie, among others, and then slowly escalate to carving out shapes on one’s skin, self-mutilation and eventually suicide.
There is still uncertainty over how a participant plays the game. While some say the user has to install some app on their smart phone, others say it’s via social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook where the administrators get in touch with the participant after those interested throw out postings on social media asking for a “curator”. A number of different hashtags— #bluewhalechallenge, #curatorfindme, #i_am_whale — act as signals for the anonymous curators.

It must be noted, however, that there still is no confirmation of the existence of the game, and suicides linked to it are from personal accounts of families/friends of those deceased who claim they have seen their loved ones performing tasks. While reports of suicides linked to the game have surfaced across the globe, authorities claim that the origin appears to be in Russia, which has reportedly seen about 130 related deaths and at least two arrests.
Schools as well as police officials in Europe and America have begun issuing advisories to parents urging them to be vigilant and to keep an eye out on what their children are sharing on their social media accounts.


Freedom day meant freedom to all
Freedom to go to the voting polls
No matter who you were
If you were rich or poor
This day opened the door
For all to have more
Freedom day for all

I lay my head down


Where do I lay my head down tonight?

Will we have a pillow fight?

Do i go down or give it all my might?

Or do i walk away and out of sight?

 

Fight all you have to, but don’t you bite!

They will try and give you a fright,

But keep your friends close and enemies in sight.

Stick together from dusk till the break of light

 

State of Proudly South Africa?


Why so disruptive?
Is this the country where we live?

Will he pay back the money?
For his Nkandla of milk and honey?

Whose the speakers?
What do they know?
Is this how we will grow?

They make our country look bad
And this is something very sad.

With guns blazing in parly
They kicked out Julius Marley
Who are these people
Shouting honourable loudly
What happened to South Africa’s proudly

The world looked upon us
We’ve become laughing stock
A fighting democracy!
A fighting country!

South African SONA 2014


What will zuma bring to the table, 
Will he say that we are able?
Or that the economy is stable?
This year in parliament
Will it be blessings, Or lament?
Help us get through this again,
As they our taxes spend
As we wait for the state of the Nation Address
We wait and hear the head of congress.
His face seem so stressed, 
As he’s led us into economic distress.
They sing him praise right to his face,
But I just wish they’d cut to the chase.
