America’s first black president paid tribute to South Africa’s first black president in what was a very moving and special address. Obama brought a tear too many an eye, but he inspired many others with his words in what will go down as one of the most moving and amazing addresses Obama has made to date.

Gallery: Rihanna brings the Diamonds World Tour to Jozi

The diamond was shining bright last night… Pop princess kicked off her first headline tour to South Africa on Sunday evening. The Pour It Up singer brought her Diamonds World Tour to over 60 000 fans at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

Yes, the traffic was a ball ache, and many complained about her not changing her outfit and about the sound, but I digged it. There is something very awesome about Rihanna and I’m stoked I got to see her. The way the crowd sang her songs back to her was great too! My best moment? The Take A Bow, Love the Way you lie and Cold Case Love melody… Damn, I loved that. She then went into We Found Love after that and you can just imagine how the crowd erupted. I have a little clip of that, but I’ll share that later. For now though, check out some of my pictures from the Diamonds World Tour – the Jozi edition 🙂

If you have any parking suggestions or ways to ease the congestion issues, leave a comment and I will gladly pass it on to the right people.
