      why didn’t they fly on the South African Airways Airbus 340-600??? they have real business class seats and not them fake premium economy seats….smh!!! abi I thought KCee claimed to be a PJ customer.
      South African Airlines doesn’t take their “I am a celeb put me in business class ” demands anymore.

      Kindly note that it’s not hot in South Africa. It’s actually winter right now so his suede suit is actually appropriate for the weather

      Keep hating while Bonang is making money. The only way you gonna make it to the MaMas is through your TV screen.

    Note: i am not hating.. but am curious when did Tunde Demuren become a celebrity… is it because he’s dating Toolz or he’s Banky W’s best friend?

    • Magz

      July 15, 2015 at 4:28 pm

      Tunde & his brother, Segun are the owners of EME

    • Tari

      July 16, 2015 at 1:31 am

      His brother is a co-owner with Banky W.
      Tunde is a pilot who flies Toolz as has been earlier stated.

    • Magz

      July 16, 2015 at 7:52 am

      @Tari, please get your facts right: Segun & Tunde Demuren own EME; they have always been friends with BankyW tho. And Tunde doesn’t fly Toolz (I refuse to see the humor in that), he actually does fly for Aero

  7. Abena

    July 15, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    Erm please i have a genuine question: Is Toolz Fiance a pilot or a manager of Banky W?I mean the guy is more all over the entertainment scene than the job he is supposed to do…
    Or he has changed careers?

    July 15, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    it will be aired live on Saturday, 18th by 9pm.
    When some people complain so much about how people look, it keeps me wondering. Dbanj is look dapper, take it or leave it, just because weather is hot, does that mean you wont dress to suit the occasion you’re going? I wish we can see faces and how some of those with hate comments look (disgusting I’m sure)

      Thank you….moreover, the jacket is appropriate for the weather since it’s winter right now in South Africa….

    I hardly keep up with these musicians but my own is why does Anthony Anderson have to host the MAMAs….Africans why? Smh…Have you seen them call IK (the most used Lol) to host BET or MTV awards? We should [consistently] encourage and celebrate indigenous talent in other aspects of this entertainment ishh.

    July 15, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    Well you may know Tunde because of toolz, but those that Follow him on Instagram, before the whole toolz will tell you that he is the owner of EME and also a pilot and fly’s for AEro. So he had had his own thing even before. You are just noticing him now.

    • Magz

      July 16, 2015 at 7:51 am

      Thank you o. Someone said it’s BankyW that owns EME with Segun, not Tunde

  16. Hahahah

    July 15, 2015 at 7:37 pm

    ok to say he can not dress you may call that “hating”
    what about the other comment she made, “a #HasBeen”
    Is that Fact or Lie??
    abeg am only asking ohhhh 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Who is that artist sitting next to Sean Tizzle? He has a passport??? Lol
    Tunde Demure is a celebrity PA jor. That’s the only thing that explains why he follows Banky everywhere. Does he not want to free Banky small and focus on his wife to be? And Banky sef should free Tunde so he doesn’t end up breaking up a home (to be) by dragging him on all these trips…..With his plenty plenty girls. Bankole pls let your PA be great.
    Mr Demure don’t let Mr W mess up your relationship before Tools ends up crying back to Don Jazzy. …just saying o. Betta take heed

    • Magz

      July 16, 2015 at 7:50 am

      Really????? BankyW mess up Tunde’s relationship??? Like seriously? Tunde & Toolz met through BankyW, you know? And Tunde is the co-owner of EME with his brother Segun!
