Psychological Benefits Of Having The Confidence To Make a Move On Your Crush

Guest post by Nosipho Welile Ntombela

Many people including myself are still stuck on Valentine’s this month. There is that special somebody that you think about more than you should, but still you are not together.  You are not together because 1.

They doesn’t know how you feel about them.

2. You are scared to make a move.

3. They are already in a relationship with someone else.

Psychological that shouldn’t be a reason for you to let go, but more reason for you to want them.  With closeup toothpaste you should be able to build up confidence of approaching your crush without fear of horrible breath and guaranteed white teeth.  With closeup you get to unlock freshness, cleanness, happiness and peace of mind. With all these four together there is no more confidence needed for you to make a move on your crush.

Once you have gained confidence and told that woman or man how you feel, you will wave lonely day’s goodbye.  You will benefit from happiness of exploring the world of love with the love of your heart. You will have stress free days, and stop being the one drooling over couples posts on social media, and let us be the ones salivating over yours. So go on put a little bit of love in your heart, as it is a most visible symbol of love, the most important organ in the human body.  You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

Keep in mind that there are psychological benefits to being in love, also being kind and loving to those around you is guaranteed to have you feeling virtuous about yourself psychologically, and emotionally. A good reason to pursue love and enjoy the benefits of being in a relationship this month, not forgetting good health and long life as part of the package.

Confidence can help conquer the world.  A good feeling of worthy lashes out when you feel good about yourself. The research says that people who are self-confident are more relaxed in social settings and when they meet new people. They are ready psychological, before they are ready physical.  So go on, go out and make that move you have been dreaming about since this month started.  Benefit from love just by being in love, make a move without fear of rejection.

New kids on the block Accrue & El Koba Collaborate On New Sing #PourUp

A second born in a family of five, 24 year old rap artist Elijah Chigwida who goes by the name Accrue was born in Glenorah B in Zimbabwe and began expressing his feelings through music at the age of 14. In search of greener pastures, Accrue and fellow musician Drew (Maurice Vutika) moved to South Africa in 2015 where they met EL Koba (Mpilo Thwala) and have been working collaboratively, making music together.

“At first it was to help me escape the reality I was living in but then as I wrote more songs I grew to love it more. Not everyone walks the same path, but being able to experience another person’s life through music is powerful to say the least. Plenty of people strive to support diversity and want to have an open-mind, well rap can help you get there. Just listen” says Accrue

In 2016 Accrue met business man Shawn Jones who believed in his talent and signed him under his company PURE Records where he began working on his music career and late 2017 released his first hit single Pour Up featuring El Koba.

“When I released Pour up I was basically thinking about all the good times I’ve had and realised some of the best memories I made with friends. I had not done a song specifically dedicated to the wonderful people that have contributed to my creativity, happiness and growth as an individual. I called El Koba and when he liked the idea we went straight to studio. The song is available on all digital platforms and I hope the people will love it” Accrue concludes.

Profile Feature: Makgofe Moagi

Makgofe Moagi

“I believe in a purpose led existence. To be, is not enough. If I can have all the success but never change a life for the better, I don’t know if I want success at all. My vision is to work and move with a purpose.”

From a young age, Makgofe Moagi has had a vision to better the lives of those around her. Having grown up in the small mining town of Phalaborwa in Limpopo,  she began her philanthropic spirit of making a difference and helped children in impoverished communities.

Today, a successful actress, television presenter, businesswoman and mistress of ceremonies, she has become a multifaceted force to be reckoned with, as a passionate philanthropist and change agent.

The entertainer

Makgofe has over two decades of experience in all round entertaining, from acting, television advertisement cameos, modelling and voice-over work for some of the country’s most notable brands, such as banking titan FNB,  FMCG brand Kellogg’s, telecommunications giant MTN, South Africa’s electricity provider Eskom and SAFM- to name but a few. Today, Makgofe is most fondly known for her role as Charity Ramabu in the popular drama series Skeem Saam, which boasts over 5 million viewers every weekday.

The businesswoman

Not only talented but with a sharp instinct for business, Makgofe is the owner of various business interests across the board. She co-owns SelMak- a wellness and healthcare facility that promotes a homeopathic approach in healing operating in Phalaborwa. She also serves as Executive Producer of In The Spotlight With Makgofe; a talk-show that covers a cocktail of topics that affect society at large – produced under the umbrella of Serurubele Pictures.

The philanthropist

An advocate for human rights, especially women and youth empowerment, Makgofe is the Managing Director and Founder of the MDM Foundation- a family-run entity that gives back and “pays it forward” in her hometown of Limpopo. The foundation focuses on health and educational development of children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, empowering and motivating them from a grassroots level.

“I firmly believe we are blessed to be a blessing, so I strive to find a way to plant seeds wherever and with whomever I make contact. It’s like what we are taught in John 13:15 about being a good example. That’s what it’s all about.”


The official trailer for ZULU WEDDING, the much anticipated romantic-comedy from producer/director, Lineo Sekeleoane, has been released.  The film will be released in cinemas nationwide on 23 February 2018 by Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.

Watch the trailer here:

Unashamedly romantic, glamorous and hilarious all at the same time, the film pays loving tribute to the richness of African culture. It acknowledges the – sometimes schizophrenic – reality of many urban South Africans who live sophisticated, modern lives which are nonetheless shaped by their family cultures, traditions and expectations.   

Feisty choreographer, Lu “Lungile” (Nondumiso Tembe), will do anything to avoid falling in love. Even more so to avoid going home to South Africa, where she’s traditionally engaged to a king. However, when she meets her soulmate Tex (Darrin Dewitt Henson), she is forced to confront the tradition she’s been running away from since the death of her parents, when she turned 18, and the ancestral debt they left her. She hatches a plan to confront the King and convince him to forget about her, but when she prevails upon handsome royal advisor Zulu (Pallance Dladla), to help her get into the Royal Compound, he proves to be a dangerously seductive charmer, one who seems to represent all the best aspects of her background.

Tex, his wise-cracking best friend, Nate (Carl Payne), Lou’s eccentric traffic officer sister, Mabo (Makgano Mambolo) and her tell-it-like-is alcoholic best friend, Sam (Bubu Mazibuko), set off to ‘the rurals’ to rescue her while the shifty Uncle Phineas (Jerry Phele), his sexy wife Yvonne (Kelly Khumalo) and “The Basotho 10,”(lead by TKZee Family’s Gwyza) stay behind. The stage is set for hilarity, hi-jinks and heartbreak.

With an effervescent screenplay by Julie Hall and stunning cinematography by award-winning Lance Gewer of Tsotsi fame, ZULU WEDDING promises a lush, playful, escapist experience which should appeal to fans of films like Happiness is a Four-letter Word and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

The star-studded cast includes Nondumiso Tembe (True Blood, King Kong – The Musical); Darrin Dewitt-Henson (Soul Food, Lincoln Heights, Stomp The Yard); Pallance Dladla (Tempy Pushas, Isibaya, Hard To Get); the hilarious, Carl Payne (Martin, The Cosby Show); Bubu Mazibuko; Kelly Khumalo; Lorcia Cooper, S’thandiwe Kgoroge; Treasure Tshabalala; Kole Omotoso and Makgano Mamabolo with cameo appearances from DJ Tira, Carolyn Steyn and many of South Africa’s best-loved celebrities.

This Luju Pictures Film was produced in association with Brand Contact, the DTI, NFVF and Tsoga Afrika.
