Oops nearly fell off there

LAME MODISE
MY SUMMER BODY

But I am back on. It has been two weeks since my last entry and I have a lot to share though my schedule has not had much of a shuffle.


I must confess that I have been a busy bee, working towards the goal of losing weight as a bee would towards gathering enough nectar during the summer to live comfortably well through the icy winter months. Only with me it was the other way around, I was working throughout the winter to lose weight so that I can comfortably wear hot pants without having to feel self conscious about my cellulite and the bulges that had forced me to seek refuge in everything loose and baggy.


Needless to say, I am still at it, with even more determination now that the ‘Summer Bodies are made In Winter Campaign’ is drawing to an end with less than two months left. I have managed to get back up on the horse after falling through lack of spirit. The strength of my mind could only get back up after a traumatic financial development (I would rather not talk about it) nearly crushed me.

I was down and out, felt like my life was over and wondered, “Why do I even bother, who am I fooling, I was never going to finish it anyway,” It was after many such monologues that I realized that by giving up, I would not only be letting myself down but my team mates (we have grown to become a great team that supports one another), and most importantly, the people whom I have promised to let into my weight loss journey with the promise of updates on my progression.


I would like to report that the (financial) situation has not changed, but my mindset has made a great turn around. I am no longer in the slumps and feel even more eager to see this program to the end. From personal experience, I want to believe that despite the curve balls that life throws at you, the journey to weight loss and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle is anything but simple and straight forward. Keep me in your prayers and we will see it to the end of this program.

Creatives taking over 2023

26th September 2023

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.

They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.

This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.

HAN C

Ever since he parted ways with his former manager, DJ Bougee Sid, Mahalapye born-pint sized, multi-award-winning artist, Hanceford Magapatona has been taking up space, unapologetically so. Han C has shown a strong will to take over the entire world, and he is in the right direction. He’s solely organizing the annual Mahalapye Spring Festival, which is taking place next weekend.

The Pepetetsa hitmaker raked some monies from his savings to put together this event. Mahalapye Spring Festival will feature Paige, Ubuntu Band, Khoisan, Amantle Brown and Double Up among others. Even though it didn’t come as a surprise, Han C was nominated at African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) in the US, under Best Male Southern Africa category.

However, the award was snatched by the late South African rapper, AKA. Its not all lost as Han C secured two nominations at the Yarona FM Music Awards (YAMAs): People’s Choice of the Year and Best Male Single.

KOKETSO MOTSWAGOLE

This entrepreneur has turned his dreams into reality, and his promising apparel business is now a fashion destination. Matter of fact, Motswagole weathered the storms to be where he is now because through criticism and social media bullying, he still leads the pack in fashion.

His social media accounts got deleted but through his online store, KM Sales, Motswagole is able to rake in some profits. He initially started selling from his car but now owns a busy store and has employed a number of young people.

KM Sales has been offering fashionable items (shoes, t-shirts, pants) and has been participating in various lifestyle events such as Garden of Drip where it showcases its products.

If there is one young entrepreneur to draw motivation from is Koketso. The business started from humble beginnings, at the time when he worked part time at Ipelegeng as a casual labor. Indeed, good things come to those who wait, or well, work like a slave today, live like a king tomorrow.

KAGISO LUDO DE KLERK

Vee Mampeezy’s ex-wife Kagiso De Klerk clearly did not sit and weep over their dramatic divorce. The famous social media influencer hurriedly picked up the pieces and went hard on promoting business online. She literally took social media influencing to the head and it is working for her.

This year saw her partnership with Shell reach greater heights, and obviously, she is raking lot of pulas from the deal. Kagiso has been making frequent appearances in top events in South Africa such as Bubbles in Spring and Gold and Diamond Experience.

GAONA DINTWE

After a long break from the limelight, renowned media and radio personality, Gaona Dintwe is back. She was missed by many on TV, and she’s back where she belongs, news anchoring on BTV. Gaona has also found a niche in podcasting. She is a host of her own podcast, Gaona Live Conversation, where various people share their stories on camera.

Some of what they discuss is Gender Based Violence (GBV), polygamy and drug addiction. This is highly commendable because even BTV doesn’t have programs that discuss these crucial social issues. The Lentswelemoruti native is also seen in various corporate events where she is engaged as a host.
