The winning pair will be announced in the Absa Pride Hospitality area where they will receive a unique #ConquerAsOne jersey to wear proudly during the next day’s stage.

Johannesburg, 10 March 2016: Music and youth authority MTV Base (DStv channel 322) is throwing down a challenge to the youth of South Africa, as it searches for a brand new VJ to represent the channel.
The new VJ will host shows on MTV Base and MTV as well as interviewing stars, MC-ing events, attending international awards shows such as the VMAs, EMAs and MAMAs, walking the red carpet, and travelling the continent – all while being an ambassador for MTV Base.

After the dramatic end of Umlilo season 2, viewers can anticipate more heart-stopping drama when the show returns for a third season in a new time slot on Monday, 21 March at 9.30PM.
Umlilo season 1 first aired on e.tv in March 2015. Season 1 explored a polygamous marriage and the interpersonal dramas of a family in a state of flux. It was during this season that polygamist Mnqobi introduced his third wife Khwezi, oblivious to her devious intentions.
Season 2 returned in August 2015, where more drama and death took place. We saw Khwezi, along with her uncle Welcome, put their plan into action, leaving the Simelane’s in tatters. Dumile made sure she discovered Khwezi’s identity, but it was too late as Mnqobi had already lost his first wife Cebisile and his entire family’s lives were in danger. In the end, Khwezi held Mnqobi and Dumile hostage, forcing him to shoot Dumile. Continue reading

Says Keagan: “For every 90 minutes you see me on the pitch, there’s 900 minutes you don’t. To be the best, you need to put in the training.”

Charlie’s Angels became an instant cultural phenomenon and shot to the top of the ratings after premiering in 1976. It made overnight stars of its original crime-fighting “Angels”, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith and the trio made the cover of Time magazine that year. It went on to spawn two hit feature films of the same name.
However as Behind The Camera The Unauthorized Story of Charlie’s Angels (True Movies, Monday March 28 at 20h45) reveals all was not plain sailing. The show’s original title was Alley Cats; Farah Fawcett-Majors, then the loving wife of Six Million Dollar Man star Lee Majors took the role for a laugh while John Forsythe became the unseen Charlie as a last-minute replacement after a big-name star showed up drunk.

DHL Stormers Head Coach Robbie Fleck has made four changes and a positional switch in the starting XV to face the Cell C Sharks at DHL Newlands.
There is just one injury-enforced change to the backline, with Kurt Coleman stepping up at flyhalf in the absence of Rob du Preez who has been ruled out for up to 12 weeks with a knee injury. This means that the talented Jean-Luc du Plessis could make his Vodacom Super Rugby debut if he comes off the bench to replace Coleman.
In the front row props JC Janse van Rensburg and Frans Malherbe get their first opportunity to start this season, with Oli Kebble and Vincent Koch taking their respective places on the replacements bench.
Siya Kolisi will also get his first start of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, with Schalk Burger taking the No.8 jersey and Nizaam Carr moving to No.6 in place of Sikhumbuzo Notshe who is set for an impact role off the bench. Continue reading
