Zakes Bantwini Tells Apple Music About His Album, ‘The Star Is Reborn’

My album ‘The Star Is Reborn’ is like a continuation of my last album, ‘Ghetto King.’ I feel like sonically it’s more or less like an extension of that album because that sound I’m still exploring. On that album, ‘Ghetto King,’ it was an introduction to the way Afrohouse and Afrotech – the music, the way now it’s sounding – and I felt like there was still a lot of instruments I still want to use in the sound, so the extension of that culminated in ‘The Star Is Reborn.’


Zakes Bantwini Tells Apple Music How Artists Like Tyla Can Influence South African Performers 

When you look at artists now like Tyla… I feel like audiences need to see a performance and in South Africa we don’t get to see a performance a lot, because most people who are happening in South Africa have to stand behind the decks, because the music is carried by DJs in South Africa and I think that needs to change. We still need to find more artists performing dances, really doing something amazing and that’s why Tyla is so important. She’s saying “Hey” to the world, “We are South Africans and we perform like this.” That’s why I’m loving what is happening right now.

From Fast X to The Super Mario Bros: the best movies on Showmax this December



From Fast X to The Super Mario Bros: the best movies on Showmax this December
Ready for your December movie binge? Here are some new additions on Showmax to add to your watchlist.
Fast X, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Genie, 65, Magic Mike’s Last Dance, and The Amazing Maurice
FAST X | First on Showmax | Stream now
The end of the road begins in Fast X, which was the #1 international box office opening of 2023.
Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: a terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past, fueled by blood revenge, and determined to destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.
All your faves are back, including Oscar winners Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, Emmy nominees John Cena and Nathalie Emmanuel, Teen Choice nominees Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, and Jordana Brewster, Teen Choice winners Tyrese Gibson and Scott Eastwood, Grammy winner Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Sung Kang as Han. Oscar winner Brie Larson (aka Captain Marvel), Jason Momoa (DuneAquaman) and Critics Choice Super Award nominee Alan Richtson (Reacher) all make their franchise debuts too.
As Mashable critic Kristy Puchko says, “This is what summer movies should be! It’s spectacular! It’s thrilling! And it’s the kind of movie you can’t wait to yammer about to your friends. Truly, I walked out of Fast X with a big Momoa smile on my face, so wide it hurt.”

THE SUPER MARIO BROS. MOVIE | Stream from Monday, 18 December
The biggest animated opening of all-time, and the biggest global opening of 2023, The Super Mario Bros. Movie follows a couple of plumbers named Mario and Luigi, a princess named Peach, and an evil Koopa king known as Bowser … Sound familiar? That’s because the animated film The Super Mario Bros. Movie, from Nintendo and Illumination, is based on the classic megahit Mario video game franchise loved by generations of kids and kids-at-heart.
The film’s all-star voice cast is led by Kids’ Choice winner Chris Pratt (Owen Grady in the Jurassic World movies, and Marvel’s Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord) as Mario and Emmy nominee Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) as Princess Peach. Critics Choice nominee Charlie Day (Charlie in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the voice of Benny in The Lego Movies) voices Luigi, with Kids’ Choice winner Jack Black (the Jumanji and Goosebumps movies, School of Rock, and the voice of Kung Fu Panda’s Po) as the villainous Bowser.
Variety says The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s “ingenuity is infectious. You don’t have to be a Mario fan to respond to it, but the film is going to remind the millions who are why they call it a joystick.”

Emmy nominee Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy YouGangs of London, The Capture) and two-time Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (BridesmaidsCan You Ever Forgive Me?) co-star, opposite the likes of Critics Choice nominee Marc Maron (GLOW), four-time Emmy nominee Alan Cumming (The Good Wife), Screen Actors Guild winner Luis Guzmán (Wednesday) and Deneé Brenton (The Gilded Age).
Love Life creator Sam Boyd directs.
65 | Stream from Monday, 11 December
In 65, a catastrophic crash strands Pilot Mills on an unknown planet, where he quickly discovers he’s not alone. With only one chance at rescue, Mills and the only other survivor, a young girl named Koa, face an epic fight to survive as they make their way across an unknown terrain riddled with dangerous prehistoric creatures … that look uncannily like those that roamed the Earth 65 million years ago.
The sci-fi thriller stars Oscar nominee Adam Driver (Star Wars’ Kylo Ren and Enzo Ferrari in Ferrari) and Ariana Greenblatt (young Ahsoka Tano in Ahsoka, young Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War, and Minnow in Love and Monsters), along with Screen Actors Guild nominee Chloe Coleman (Kira in Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves, and Lou in Marry Me), and Nika King (Leslie Bennett in Euphoria).
Written and directed by the Critics Choice Award-nominated writers of A Quiet Place, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, 65 is produced by the likes of Sam Raimi (who directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Spider-Man trilogy and the Evil Dead movies) and four-time Emmy nominee Deborah Liebling (PEN15).
MAGIC MIKE’S LAST DANCE | Stream from Monday, 25 December
Directed by Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (the Ocean’s films), Magic Mike’s Last Dance sees People’s Choice winner Channing Tatum back in the third instalment of the blockbuster film franchise, which went straight to #1 at the US box office.
The story picks up with “Magic” Mike Lane returning to the stage again after a lengthy break, following a business deal that went bust, leaving him broke and taking bartender gigs in Florida. For what he hopes will be one last hurrah, Mike heads to London with a wealthy socialite (Oscar nominee Salma Hayek from House of Gucci and The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard) who lures him with an offer he can’t refuse…and an agenda all her own. With everything on the line, once Mike discovers what she truly has in mind, will he—and the roster of hot new dancers he’ll have to whip into shape—be able to pull it off?
As Huffington Post says, “Tatum, whose stripper past first inspired the character, looks more comfortable than ever in a role that, like the film, is in equal parts funny, playful, sexy and sincere.”

THE AMAZING MAURICE | Stream from Thursday, 7 December
Based on Terry Pratchett’s Carnegie Medal-winning novel The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents (which was in turn inspired by the Brothers Grimm’s Pied Piper of Hamelin), The Amazing Maurice follows a sassy, street-smart ginger cat with a sneaky disposition. Together with his band of rats and pied-piper friend Keith, he travels across the countryside, swindling villagers with a staged rat plague. But when the gang sets its sights on a scenic market town, they quickly realise that someone else got there first…
The all-star voice cast is led by Emmy nominees Hugh Laurie (House M.D., Avenue 5) as Maurice, Emilia Clarke (G’iah in Secret Invasion and Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones) as story narrator Malicia, Himesh Patel (Dr Watson in Enola Holmes 2) as Keith, and David Thewlis (Professor Lupin in the Harry Potter movies and Grail in Enola Holmes 2) as the dastardly Boss Man, with Emmy winner David Tennant (Doctor Who, Crowley in Good Omens, and the voice of Huyang in Ahsoka) as Dangerous Beans.
Common Sense Media gives it a 4/5-star rating, recommending the film for ages 8+ and saying “this fun-packed animation captures the [Terry Pratchett] magic that appeals on multiple levels to kids and adults alike.”

MARGAUX | Stream from Thursday, 28 December
In Margaux, a group of college friends rent a smart house for a weekend of partying but soon begin to realise that the house’s super advanced AI system, Margaux, has sinister designs for them. And what Margaux wants, Margaux gets.
The cast includes Teen Choice winner Vanessa Morgan (Riverdale’s Toni Topaz), Richard Harmon (John Murphy in The 100), Madison Pettis (American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules), Lochlyn Munro (Peacemaker’s Detective Larry Fitzgibbon, Hal Cooper in Riverdale), and Jordan Buhat (Vivek Shah in Grown-ish), with Susan Bennett (the original voice of Siri) as the voice of Margaux.
Nominated for three awards in its native Canada, including a Leo Award for Best Male Supporting Performance (for Richard Harmon), the thriller is directed by SXSW Award nominee Steven C Miller (In the Line of DutyMarauders).
“What makes Margaux an interesting antagonist is the idea that she’s always watching, listening, and collecting information. Even the greatest of slasher villains aren’t omnipresent,” says Dread Central, praising the horror’s “darkly comedic sensibility” and calling the film “a fun time at the movies [that] entertains from start to finish.”

12 years old Ghanaian Nicholas Boamah premieres first TV show



WhatsApp Image 2023 12 01 at 12.52.55 AM

U.S.-based Ghanaian, Nicholas Buamah Continues To Wow Audience

12-year-old Nicholas Buamah has recently set the internet ablaze with the premiere of his new TV show, “Nick’s House.”

 The much anticipated pilot episode lived up to expectations, delivering both a blend of humor and wholesomeness. Nicholas, whose father hails from Ghana, infused elements of the Ghanaian culture into the TV sitcom, evident in the incorporation of the Twi language. Hollywood actor Som Aidoo, portraying Nicholas’s father on the show and a native of Ghana, seamlessly embraced the Ghanaian dialect, contributing to the authenticity of ‘Nick’s House.’

Nicholas’s journey into the world of storytelling began at the age of 7 when he published his first book, “Kayla & Kyle: The Walking Dictionaries, Election Day.” This marked the inception of a passion that led him to publish two additional books. As his love for writing blossomed, he envisioned creating a scripted show. Collaborating with his mother, Danielle, Nicholas enlisted the expertise of professional writers and producers to bring this remarkable project to life.

Although presented with offers from different platforms to feature “Nick’s House,” Nicholas and his mother opted to release it independently, ensuring accessibility to a global audience. Nicholas says that he’s looking forward to filming an episode or two of “Nick’s House” in Ghana in 2024.


Nicholas is credited as the creator, writer, and star of the show. He invites everyone to watch the pilot episode on MotherHubbard.TV or
