Ne-Yo in South Africa with Malibu Red

This week has been good. I got to chat to the guys from Mi Casa ahead of their big performance for President Obama on Monday. I also got to chat to Ne-Yo, who happens to one of my favourite artists. He’s super talented and let me tell you, in person, he’s so awesome. Friendly, forthcoming, intelligent and just the sort of dude you’d like to hang out with.

He was here in his capacity as Creative Director for the new range of Malibu called Malibu Red. Last night I hit up the red carpet event at The Venue in Johannesburg. Some of SA’s finest were in attendance walking the carpet as was Ne-Yo. Check out the highlights above – and stay tuned for more on my one-on-one interview coming soon (when I can finally convert the format to something workable).

Today I meet Ne-Yo


Today I get to meet and interview one of my favourite artists, Ne-Yo. The star jetted into the country yesterday as part of his ambassador duties for Malibu. He is the creative director behind their new range of Malibu Red and so he’s out here to promote the drink and also to perform tomorrow night. He’ll be joined on stage by AKA and Toya Delazy, so it’s bound to be a good night out. More on that on Friday or keep an eye on my Twitter handle for more details.

If you’ve got any burning questions for Ne-Yo, you’ve got until lunch time (SA time) to let me know, otherwise be sure to check back here soon for the video interview.


It’s a girl for Pink and Carey

Singer Pink and her man Carey Hart are the proud parents of a baby girl. Willow Sage was born yesterday in the US and the star (or her people) confirmed the news on her Twitter account.

“We are ecstatic to welcome our new beautiful healthy happy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart. She’s gorgeous, just like her daddy. #beyondblessed

Aah man… Bless. Congratulations to the happy couple on the arrival of their little gal. I feel she will be one of the coolest moms in town!
