DJ Zinhle has lauded her husband, Bongani “Mörda” Mohosana for making his solo debut. After changing his stage name from Murdah Bongz to Mörda earlier this year, he confirmed that his pursuit of solo endeavors did not mean he and Thabo Smol of Black Motion were parting ways. This past Friday, Mörda released his 10-track project titled “Asante,” named after his daughter with DJ Zinhle Jiyane. Zinhle took to her timeline to congratulate him on his venture.
“My beautiful and talented husband dropped his first solo project today, a 10-track album named after our daughter Asante. I’m so proud of you @murdahbongz, congratulations my love!” she wrote. In another post, Zinhle recalled how confident and calm her partner was before the release. “It was raining that night and his willingness to stay in the rain and pray is the reason I love and support him. He takes nothing for granted. He gave his whole heart to this album,” she wrote.
4. Kanye West apologizes for George Floyd comments
Kanye West is taking a moment to apologize for his comments regarding the death of George Floyd, alleging that it was caused by fentanyl use. In a long-winded 16-minute video shared by WmgLab Records on YouTube on Saturday, October 29, the artist and entrepreneur addressed the domino-effect financial fallout amid his Floyd and antisemitic remarks that were seen on social media platforms and heard in interviews.
“When the idea of Black Lives Matter came out, it made us come together as a people. I said that, and I questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people. It hurt Black people,” he said. Continuing, “I want to apologize for hurting them [sic] because right now God has shown me by what Adidas is doing, and by what the media is doing, I know how it feels to have a knee on my neck now. So I thank you, God, for humbling me and letting me know how it really felt. Because how could the richest Black man ever be humbled other than to be made to not be a billionaire in front of everyone off of a comment.”

Rafaela Pimenta, the agent of Paul Pogba, has confirmed that the Frenchman will miss the upcoming World Cup in Qatar after picking up a thigh injury in training. The midfielder was trying to make a comeback from a knee injury that had thrown his involvement into doubt in the first place. Speaking to the press, Pimenta explained: “Paul would like to return as quickly as he can, but he has to arm himself with patience, work hard in these difficult times, and give his best to be back on the pitch for the fans and his team as soon as possible.”
Upon making his return to Juventus in the summer, Pogba suffered a knee injury in pre-season and has spent the time since recovering from surgery. The midfielder had been closing in on a return in previous weeks, with one eye on Qatar, but will now miss the tournament in which he proved integral to helping France win in 2018.
