MISS SOUTH AFRICA DEMI-LEIGH NEL-PETERS LAUNCHES UNBREAKABLE INITIATIVE
________________________________________

Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters celebrates her  22nd birthday on Wednesday (June 28) with the launch of her campaign Unbreakable.

Nel-Peters introduced the initiative at a glittering party held in her honour at the weekend by sponsors Sun International and Cell C, at the glamorous Altitude at Time Square at Menlyn Maine in Pretoria.

Explains Demi-Leigh: “The Unbreakable campaign aims to educate, uplift and empower South African women. This they can start to do by taking care of themselves and making wise decisions.”

Nel-Peters was inspired to launch Unbreakable because of the attempted hijacking she experienced earlier this month: “It was an awful experience but I knew how to handle the situation in the best possible way because I had done a defensive driving course as well as a workshop for women that focused on everything from hijacking and robberies and how to handle …

M-Net gives The Voice SA talent another chance

M-Net gives The Voice SA talent another chance 
M-Net has decided that none of the five remaining talent in The Voice SA will be going home this coming Sunday. In addition, M-Net has also given Luke Lovemore and PJ Pretorius, who received the fewest votes in the previous two weeks, the option to return to the show. As such, the voting lines have been closed.
The decision was made in the interests of fairness and transparency, after M-Net was alerted about alleged paid-for marketing efforts (boosted posts) on some talent’s personal social media accounts. Paid-for marketing, which is against the rules of the competition, can cause voting spikes which could provide an unfair advantage. This prompted M-Net to conduct an investigation into the way in which these efforts could have affected the outcome of the voting results. It was ascertained that only the past two voting periods, in which Luke Lovemore and PJ Pretorius left the competition, could have been affected.  
“Despite our best effor…
