Listen now: Tasha Baxter- Ebb & Flow

It’s about time Ms Tasha Baxter released some new material. This is the first single of six according to her SoundCloud account. It’s called Ebb & Flow and it was written by Tasha and is produced by Jon Gooch (stage name Spor and Feed Me).

This is the first single to be released since Tasha released her SAMA winning album ‘Colour Of Me’ back in 2008. Have a listen below and let me know your thoughts? I’ve always rated her and I think she is a hugely talented artist.

Check out some of my interviews and videos with Tasha Baxter

Glad she’s releasing new material and she’s showing the big record labels that she can do it on her own. Nice one.

Save South Africa’s Big Brother housemate, Lerato


This week the would-be lovers Tatiana and Munya were put up by the rest of their housemates as the two up for eviction in the Big Brother All Stars series. But because Tatiana is again head of house, she got to save herself and put one of her housemates on the chopping block. Who did she choose? South Africa’s Lerato. Urgh. She must have some beef with Lerato. It’s probably because Lerato is strong-willed, fun and a treat to Tati. I’m hoping Lerato doesn’t ‘go home’ aka to the barn, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see tonight. I dig Munya too so it’s a tough call. I’m behind #TeamLerato. I hope you are too 🙂

BBA: Uti, Sammi and Hannington up for Eviction

M-Net’s Big Brother All Stars season hasn’t been dull- at all. Apart from all the housemates being up for nomination last week; their mutiny against Biggie at the weekend and or course Big Brother’s eviction curveball, there were other surprises in store for the All Stars. Instead of seeing Tatiana and Kaone off, the two ‘evictees’ were sent right back into the house. So the big question, who of the housemates aren’t so popular this week? Well once all the nominations were in, it was Sammi, Uti and Tatiana who found themselves up for eviction. But because Tatiana is the head of house, she had the opportunity to swap herself with someone else- and that she did by putting Hannington up for eviction.

So who are you keeping in Africa’s most watched house? Get to http://bigbrotherafrica.dstv.com to find out more about how you can vote to save your favourite.
