Things people do in this town to gain popularity really perplex me.
Shaya has been informed that one of our promoters, Zenzele of Zen Promotions who has now turned philanthropist has been basking in other people’s glory and claiming it to be hers.
Apparently the sister who is now known for giving back to the community has been using certain American money and claiming the money comes from her pocket.
It all came out recently when she went to the office of the president to report that she had built a house for a less privileged family a few kilometres away from Gabs but the villagers are said to have shamed her and told the Minister that the house was built by the Americans and not by the husky voiced sister.
When contacted for comment Zen dismissed the allegations as lies and told Shaya that there are people who are out to tarnish her good name because they want publicity.
For her sake we hope she is right and the villagers are wrong.
When civil servants who went on an industrial strike sang about Minister Mokgweetsi Masisi being a bootlicker Shaya felt sorry for the big guy whom yours truly believed he got where he is because of merit and hard work.
But now Shaya is forced to eat a humble pie and apologise profusely to all BOFEPUSU members for not believing in them when they outed Masisi for who he really is, a sycophant.
An embarrassing clip leaked from Botswana Television which I doubt was supposed to reach the public has gone viral on smart phones.
In it, the shameless Minister describes himself as a bootlicker and a son of a bootlicker who is also descendant from a line of sycophants.
With all that said and done maybe it’s time all the bootlickers in big positions came out of their closets so we can know what exactly we are dealing with.
If you missed last week’s awards please go buy that copy.
Meanwhile as we continue this week to recognize both useful and useless people in this city we turn to the music industry.
First to be conferred with Shaya’s award is
1:Odirile ‘Vee’ Sento: I have been observing Vee as years come and go but what I have noticed is that he keeps the same energy but since going to church he seems to have developed the spirit of lying which is a very bad demon for business.
He long promised to marry his long time sweetheart Kagiso but nothing is coming up despite my numerous reminders.
I give him 8/10 for being a professional musician and the other 2 marks disappears because of his lying.
He doesn’t seem to be making any effort. For all this I give him below average 4/10 and hope in 2014 he will resurrect.
3: Atlasaone AKA A.T.I: I used to love this young man and I idolized him as my own Chris Brown but professionalism is what he lacks and if he doesn’t fix that I don’t see his career going beyond 2013.
I give him 2/10 and urge him to go to church and instead of contracting the lying demon which seems to be prevalent in these fire churches he should get his own demons exorcised.
I have always warned my celebrity friends who all go to one church led by one young man who now calls himself a ‘pastor.’ to be careful of whom they follow.
I told them that this so called pastor who runs a church in G-west industrial is nothing but just a young man who wants to make money.
Well if you thought I was wrong ask your friends who were out in South Africa over the independence holidays and you will be shocked at what the man of the cloth got up to.
Apparently our holy man was spotted in Durban living it up in a convertible posh car full of skimpily clad young women.’
What shocks yours truly the most is that your pastor was also imbibing ‘holy water’ from the bar.
When he comes back he tells you he had gone for a meeting.
Anyhow good luck to you as you continue to give this young man your money every Sunday.
The money is yours after all and you can spend it whichever way you want but don’t say Shaya didn’t warn you.
I just had a feeling that it was bound to happen sooner than later.
Choppies’ expansion into neighbouring South Africa has been suspected to have annoyed some retailers down south.
Just recently Yours Truly found the Choppies billboard flat on the ground in Marikana.
Though it was positioned a safe distance from the road, a motorist decided to topple it over. Choppies better be warned.
These guys are not taking your arrival into their territory lying down.
