Celeb Feasts with Zola Nene features some exciting personalities in February

The delicious and heart-warming Celeb Feasts with Zola show got off to a cooking start in January thanks to the award-winning, television chef Zola Nene’s fun, down-to-earth culinary inspiration and the fantastic lineup of stars she hosted in her kitchen. February promises more beautiful moments between famous celebs and their mentors, more easy-to-prepare, delicious recipes and, of course, many more laughs.

February kicked off with the stunning and full-of-life Generation’s star Denise Zimba with her mentor, the famous personality and brand manager, Solly Moeng. Mix Zimba’s playfulness with Zola’s inspiration, add a touch of Moeng’s powerful spice and you get a tasty three-course meal and a hearty show. They start off with a crowd-pleasing – crispy fried chicken and homemade sweet chilli sauce. The mains are a trendy Japanese ramen noodle bowls with pork rice balls – a meal that will ‘wow’ the most sophisticated dinner guests. They end off this wonderful meal with scrumptious salted caramel pancakes.

The charming Kyle Cassim, 5FM and nightclub DJ who commands dancefloors in nightclubs and festivals all over the country appeared last night. He brought his fellow-DJ and younger brother, Austin Cassim, as his mentor. The Cassim brothers charmed our chef and told her all about their lives as DJs, while she showed them how to whip up a three-course spread to impress. The menu started with mouth-watering smoked snoek pate and gluten-free crackers, followed by tasty braised lamb and creamy rice, and rounding it all off was yummy gingerbread chocolate pudding.

Zola Nene’s good friend and TV presenter Katlego Maboe is next with his mentor – and best friend, businessman Stephen Tsebela. These guys cook up a storm in Zola’s kitchen starting with stuffed homemade bread, succulent corn chicken and rice and milktart spring rolls. Of course, there is also wine and lots of laughs.

South Africa’s soapie-star Renate Stuurman, best known for her roles in 7de Laan, Isidingo and in Scandal hits Zola’s kitchen on 26 February. She brings her mentor Zimkita Sidumo along to create a fantastic meal. The ladies kick off with a great little cheese fondue, followed by hearty curried lamb shanks with fragrant rice and pickled vegetables. With red wine plum sorbet for dessert this meal is a master-piece.

Pick Your Favourite at the Second Annual Verse of the Year Awards

Following the success of the inaugural Verse of the Year Awards last year, popular urban music website SlikourOnLife today announced the return of the awards set to take place next week.

The first of its kind accolade event, the Verse of the Year Awards were created last year following the popularity of the “Verse of the Month” show hosted by Stogie T on the SlikourOnlife ( platform. People just loved it, and so the awards were born.

Once again the search is on to find and honour the sharpest MC’s in the game over the past year.

Ten winning artists with the hottest verses will each be honoured at an exclusive and intimate event in Johannesburg next week. These winners are selected by a panel of judges including founder Stogie T; artist Zubz, Okay Africa’s Sabelo  Mkhabela, and The Plug Magazine’s Mercia Tucker.

The Hennessey People’s Choice Award will be based purely on public vote and the recipient will also be honoured on the night. Last year A-Reece took the award and this year fans and friends alike can vote on the various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) using the #VOTY2018 with their selection of artist and track.

For more info see below –

“We are excited to be hosting these awards again to acknowledge the best in the game. The Verse of the Year Awards was set up to honour MC’s for their sharp and intelligent rhymes. No doubt 2018’s selection is even fresher than the previous year”, said co-founder Stogi T and added “I’m also really looking forward to the People’s Choice Award this year so get those votes in.”

This year the awards are being held on Thursday, the 13th of February in Johannesburg.
