THE FLY CHIX ON VUZU TV

Image
Last night the most S.A talked about reality show #TheFlyChix premièred on VUZU TV at 19h30. I dint watch the whole episode as I was rushing somewhere, I only saw the 1st segment and I must say it was owk, although I expected much more that what I saw because of the hype @vuzutv created around the girls but still, it was watch-able, nothing compared to some "unreality" shows I've watched on TV ...
When I logged onto my twitter all I could see on my TL was the #FLYCHIX this and that, and hey, I don't remember reading one positive tweet about the show, however, this was a valid proof that everyone was watching as the show was trending already by 20h00 in South Africa and I'm sure for VUZU TV it means good marketing and they met their target in terms of stats. I remember I saw one tweet by VUZU TV manager, Solly Moeng which read "WONDERFUL !!! :)" If you did watch the show, and read the tweets, do you think the show was as bad or it just tweeps hating beca…

After a friend tweeted that, all I did was to cc @ToyaDelazy and @LootLove so we could hear it from the horses mouth, I mean we were all dying to know a…

Divas, Beauty Queens or Every Photographer’s Dream? U decide!

JHB, Tsakana born queen, Candy Rose 25 invaded Durban with Zanele Muholi and the crew of Inkanyiso productions to shoot her documentary, she recently crowned the 1st princess at the annual Miss Simply Blue hosted December 2012 in JHB. The queen with the legs to die for started with her Durban diary with h interviews, attending the concerts, one of them being the uMgababa Festival, then the interviews with different Durban socialites. Candy Rose who is also a Trans woman also had discussions with the former Miss Gay Durban, Le Sishi about being trans, living in a township and being a beauty queen. I also joined the beauty queens on the discussions about being trans women, beauty queens which was rather very interesting since we had different views on all two topics.
Church – VMCI Day 3 after meeting Candy we attended a Gay Church in Diakonia where we felt at home and connected to God, right just after the service we got into interviews with the church elders.
