    thats why its a weekly show. A lot of things happen with African celebs in a week.
    but i don’t think its like paparazzi based like “E!” but its about actual things, legit stuff. lol

    ME TOO! 🙁

    i always thought MNET was a South African thing. thats why i thought it was strange that they had an African Magic Yoruba and Hausa, lol
